    Obi-Wan learns through a TV in a sports bar that Anakin survived, and Vader deals with his guilt over killing Padme by killing Fang Zar.

    Vader stops moping about Padamame or Panda Bear or whatever and starts throwing lightsabers at people!

    Jedi live after Order 66 so Vader kicks @$$ and takes Wookiees as slaves for the construction of the Death Star with Tarkin

    Obi-Wan gets another valuable reminder that you should make sure the people you kill are actually dead before walking away while watching the news in a cantina, fortunately for Darth Krayt, Obi-Wan is also a very slow learner.

    @AdmiralWesJanson wins his first round (I think? Don't have my notes with me) amid steep competition.

    And because I can't seem to say it enough, THIS IS NOT A REVIEW THREAD. Be snarky if you're so inclined, but if your entry is 200 words of scorn for Karen Traviss I will disqualify it.

    A Republic Commando unit that is not Delta Squad lands on a farmworld to team up with a Jedi Padawan and a shapeshifter to ruin a Mandalorian's day just to capture a scientist developing a chemical bioweapon targeting the 36th Fett genome

    Karen Traviss', Omega's, and Etain's spectacular debut, before any of us knew exactly how they would all just as spectacularly let us down.

    The book that takes us crawling in the weeds (and the merlie dung) with Omega Squad's Niner, Darman, Fi and Atin under the 'leadership' of Jedi Padawan Etain Tur-Mukan; assisted by Jinart, a shapeshifting Gurlanin; on a mission to eliminate a Clone-specific Separatist Bio-weapon that is under-development on the world of Qiilura.

    Yep, my first win!

    Hard Contact:
    Rainbow Six: Star Wars with snappy dialogue, characterful clones, a non-superpowered Jedi, shapeshifters, bioweapons, and interesting villians- too bad the Mandolorians will come in and take over in later books and all the characters will start acting like clones.

    I haven't read it, and many have said that my decision to not read it may be a wise one.

    You should, it shows why a lot of people thought Traviss was going to do great things for the EU. For me, it remains her best book.

    So, I should read it, and then afterward, begin the process of dying inside.

    Yeah, but isn't the whole point of this game to create ridiculous run on sentences to stay barely in the one sentence only limit while mangling common decency all in the hopes of valueless internet kudos, kind of like this post?

    :p

    Now that I'm reading the Bounty Hunter Wars for the first time I've gone back and looked at the Slave Ship summaries since I've just finished it. Spot freakin' on. I hadn't read the cover blurb until after finishing the book and wow. Between that and the droid, that has to be one of the most straight up inaccurate Star Wars covers I've ever seen. Seems Bantam really was the era of not caring. Anyway, sorry for jumping off topic. Hard Contact, carry on.

    Hard contact: prove that the Tom Clancy formula even works in Star Wars.

    The Traviss novel least likely to inspire a 200 word run-on sentence of scorn.

    Tied at five - though generally I expected a little more competition with this one. One more day.

    A book that ties into a game and a movie, both of which were called Rambo, if I recall correctly.

    A book that is excruciatingly long to read despite its length, but surprising gem amongst the EU at the end of the day.
