    The Taliban infiltrate 3/4 of the US government in about a month, and elect a random Nigerian rebel as President. Meanwhile they set up a news station, PHOX News, and convince everyone that Buddhism is actually a sex trafficking ring.

    Actually it was Golden who came up with most of that crap, but Denning is no better.

    Ooh, ooh, and the Buddhists themselves are gun-toting Kung Fu commandos (no matter how little sense that makes) who had removed the sitting president not long earlier, and their method of defeating the Taliban (who they're primarily fighting because of the dynamiting of the Bamiyan Buddhas, naturally) involves blowing up half of Washington in "targeted tactical strikes), and some crazy lady who thinks she's Cthulhu and murdered the Nigerian decides to have Washington nuked and missile command listens to her for reasons that are never explained, and the Buddhists are exiled from the US and set up shop on some island off of Japan, which is, of course, ruled by a Buddhist monarch at the time. This sounds a lot more fun than Apocalypse itself, actually! :D

    There are but 3 exceptions to this rule and that's one of them!

    Really there are only two words that explain how far the EU has fallen under Denning:

    "Jedi Assassins"

    As in the Jedi set out to murder people, and they do it. Yay for our 'heros'

    Weren't the Jedi Shadows of the KoTOR era this- but specifically devoted to hunting down and destroying darksiders specifically?

    The disaster that is the post-NJO comes to a head when Denning brings in TCW, specifically Mortis, to try to explain what has happened to the galaxy since RotJ, not even just NJO.

    Well, they do already look like the modern interpretation of assassins...

    2 things

    1. Those games are massively historically revisionist ( I know cause the new one even says that lol)

    2. You get -10 points for not showing one of them with a lightsaber [face_not_talking] for shame sir, for shame

    FOTJ: APOCALYPSE

    Despite unrelenting enemies, traitors to the cause, and death all around, the villains of the story manage to overcome the odds and defeat both the Jedi and the Galactic Alliance, securing a galaxy where darkness can reign unchecked while its enemies cower in fear in the rump end of space, and the future is open for further conquest.

    If the Jedi Order were being written with even half the thought, depth, diversity, or characterization as those Assassins, both the Star Wars universe and we as fans would be a lot better off.

    Complexly written Jedi are not following the Jedi canon.

    Diversity? Bah! A good Jedi can do everything, like fly a fighter, kill things with a lightsaber, and, uh, some third thing. Specialization is for insects!

    Feel like I read an article about that once...

    @Loopy777 - just want to state for the record that I'm biased toward your entries because of your avatar.

    I'll take all the help I can get. :D I've used it for years, and it actually inspired my username.



    To not waste this post, I came up with another sentence:

    Allana watches while guts spill out, fingers fly, bodies are turned into goo, spines are bitten clean through, and a teenage couple breaks up... and she's still watching.

    Another hack job with tons of guts, dismembered limbs, death, and self-references to some osik trilogy in that CWAS kiddie show all the while attempting to pass off as a finale to a series . . . and it still falls to some wannabe Lovecraftian horror

    Darth Krayt wakes up from his stasis nap to take on Abeloth and is so badly injured during the fight that he has to go right back to sleep for another century.

    Apologies for putting this one off for so long, partly because I actually wanted to finish our next book. @Jeff_Ferguson closes out FOTJ.

    And now for something a little less traumatizing.

    For those wondering where Crucible is (hasn't there been enough suffering?), don't worry, it will come. But don't worry about that now. Just enjoy today.

    During his first month on Tatooine, Obi-Wan has some tasty drinks, cuts off a few limbs and gets in trouble with a woman, so nothing new here.

    In which JJM reminds us why Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most iconic Star Wars figures of all time.

    In which Zayne Carrick, Kerra Holt, and Obi-Wan Kenobi all appear on the same page...this must be a dream come true!

    I thought the implication was that they were one in the same.
