    Kit Fisto gets a lightwhip, a clone trooper gets a girlfriend, Obi-Wan gets an insectoid politician friend, a lawyerly snail friend and a fight with Asajj Ventress, a band of guerillas get to fight for their rights, and a number of rich jerks get what's coming to them, though the aforementioned clone also has to get a tear-jerking sacrifice/death scene to make that happen.

    A snail named Doolb Snoil (read it backwards) who happens to be a lawyer, gets crushed by a stalactite, which is all you really need to know about this book.

    Jedi Trial was so bad, Obi Wan went and found his own book to feature in, but surprisingly Dooku doesn't feature despite being on the cover, while Ventress features in this book but is not on the cover!

    A story by which Stoover shows he can (AGAIN!) turn a bland PT charachter and make him highly interesting and entertaining.

    Hav and Todd are tied at four, so we'll give this another day. It's still wide open, people.

    Cestus Deception is a novel so interesting that I can't even remember the plot.

    Oh what a world it would be if there really was a Stover clone...

    Okay, we almost had another tie, but nuts to that. @Havac wins.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous.

    This might be my favorite SW novel; I will judge your entries mercilessly.

    Even Yoda couldn't catch Dooku when he fell, no matter how he tried, though he came so close; Jai Maruk and Maks Leem wrench our hearts with their valiant last stand against Ventress; Whie goes home twice, first to his birthplace and then back to the Jedi; Scout never stops fighting to do her best, no matter how hard it gets, and discovers that she does belong as a Jedi; and Anakin Skywalker comes charging in at the last minute to ruin everything save the day, thanks to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, who surely couldn't bear to think of Yoda meeting Dooku alone.

    Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress take brief breaks from being cartoon villains in order to be real, amazing characters; Yoda takes a break from being a lecturing piece of Jedi Council furniture in order to be playful, wise, active, and impressive again; some Padawans show up to try to make us care about them and their angst and underachievement for the billionth time and this time we actually do; there are droids that are actual characters; and we almost believe that Dooku's about to be redeemed . . . before Anakin and Obi-Wan's heroism gets in his way.

    The book where an awesome impressive display of lighting casts Yoda in dark light that freaks Dooku out, making him see just what Yoda would look like if the old Jedi Master went dark while new Padawans are introduced and we actually care about them while the cartoon-like appearance of the Clone Wars just fades away into an epic story

    Dooku thinks he's lying when he reaches out to Yoda, Ventress kills Yoda in a dogfight, but not really because Yoda had disguised himself as an astromech droid, Scout shows us the virtue of hard work, even Jedi go through puppy love and Yoda asks Dooku to turn him to the dark side, but Dooku fails when he is unable to conjure a rose.

    Sean Stewart proves that Aaron Allston isn't the only one who can successfully intertwine eccentric hilarity and profound philosophical topics into a Star Wars novel in the simplest way possible: by writing a novel featuring Yoda, the original source of eccentric humor and deep philosophy in Star Wars.

    I probably can't really pull off this joke properly, but oh well.

    In probably one of the best written Clone Wars novels outside of the RotS novelization, Dooku sends dark greetings to Yoda for a dark rendezvous on a dark planet so Yoda sets out on a dark journey inside a dark and hot and cramped R2 unit with the rarest of the rare, actually tolerable teenage Jedi Padawans as well as with one of the most polite killer droids ever, one who is genuinely polite instead of just pretending to be, for a confrontation on a dark night about the nature of the dark side, which sadly ends in a predictable manner as Dooku decides to stay with the dark side to continue pursuing his dreams of a dark empire, decidedly not due to his jealousy over a certain dim-witted Chosen One he happens to detest.

    Sadly that's the extent of my alliteration skills. Now if only I could have thrown in a darksaber, Dark Force/Katana fleet and Rise of the Dark Falls reference in there somewhere.

    After a failed attempt to talk any sense into his former Padawan, Yoda determines that "once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny;" meanwhile, the audience gains a new definition of nausea after learning the real ingredients of Yoda's gruel.

    Yoda proves why he is the greatest jedi in the order and Dooku finally figures out what he is; alone.

    Scout proves that a little strength in the Force goes a long way, but Yoda who has more strength in the Force than any other known being is handicapped by its limitations.

    A group of Jedi, along with their faithful astromech YO-DA, arrive at a spaceport only to be ambushed by the CIS; as it turns out, their droid has more in its innards than meets the eye...

    ... meanwhile, Jedi Master Yoda is tragically killed on Ithor. :(

    As to the question of Sean Stewart writing a dreary Clone Wars era novel . . . . J'Accuse!

    Yoda knows the darkness, but would rather have a flower.
