    Nah. :p

    Edit: you know, I never thought I'd see the day where the words "vote for me" came from Jello.

    Bah, minor grammatical technicality. Don't hate on the colon. :p

    Pics of your hideously scarred face or you do not have my sympathy.

    Hmm, on that thought, I wonder what the citizens of the Republic thought the Jedi did to Palpatine... from their point of view, might have looked like some excruciatingly painful method of torture... no wonder they were anxious to kill the Jedi.

    I think in Dark Lord the claim made by Palpatine that the Jedi were the ones orchestrating the war, through their "supposedly fallen" agent Dooku, may have played a part in getting the galactic population angry at them.

    Obviously I can't really talk, since I don't live in the SW universe and really don't know how many of the facts I would have access to, but I feel like I might be somewhat suspicious in how exactly Palpatine survived an encounter with Jedi and got a hideously burned face in the process... maybe his senate guards or clone troopers rescued him, I guess.

    Anyway, I have a habit of derailing threads.

    Clones rescued him would be my guess... after all, they subsequently killed Jedi all across the galaxy for Order 66...

    Having said that, it could be kind of neat if he'd said Lord Vader had saved him, with that the official story of where this previously unheard of figure had come from, thus making him a Jedi slaying hero overnight.

    well, Vader was always known as some sort of ex-Jedi, so perhaps he was the only one who wouldn't go along with the Jedi's assassination attempt.


    The best part about that story is that it's completely true.

    Oh, that is a colon, isn't it. Well, then I just don't care for yours. :p

    The novel that made the Big Three and Mandalorians awesome again and costars Rogue Squadron and Cronal/Blackhole/Shadowspawn with two or three old guys from the Clone Wars

    Luke's got survivor's guilt, wants an exposé, gets a holodrama with flamboyantly-named Sith Lord.

    If it's not too much of a cliche, Matthew Stover delivers a Star Wars novel that's actually fun without compromising depth; if it is too much of a cliche, deal with it.

    An inventive and interesting story with the classic feel that overuses similes like Raymond Chandler on speed.

    Also, not enough Mandalorians, but that goes for every work of the EU ever (yes, including the Republic Commando series).

    In the third book in the thrilling saga of Nick Rostu, our snarky Force-sensitive butt monkey extraordinaire hero teams up with some Rebels (and a hot redhead!) to defeat Lord Shadowspawn!
