Despite having his name on the cover, this book is actually about Obi-Wan Kenobi's hayseed neighbors whose lives revolve around a general store and who all think he's dreamy, and the biggest threat in the story is a bad loan, but it's totally great anyway.
Dude, bad loans are the very essence of the dark side.
Just when Obi-Wan promises to himself to stay out of trouble, trouble a-comes his way.
Once upon a time on Tatooine...
The much awaited and anticipated sequel to Outlander finally arrives, starring Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi
and thus the waiting for "mecha-leg" maul begins
immersive, great, but still overrated
Obi-Wan may not hate sand, but shady businessmen who run protection rackets really get on his nerves.
He's just a crazy old wizard.
I'm just going to cheat:
"Westerns. A period gone by, the pioneer, the loner operating by himself, without benefit of society. It usually has something to do with some sort of vengeance; he takes care of the vengeance himself, doesn't call the police. Like Robin Hood. It's the last masculine frontier. Romantic myth, I guess, though it's hard to think about anything romantic today. In a Western you can think, Jesus, there was a time when man was alone, on horseback, out there where man hasn't spoiled the land yet."
Were is that from?
As a man studying indian history my reaction is
You mean Native American, I take it?
Or first nation if you like
Gamiel who is pictured in your avatar?
Gade Yedan from X-Wing Rogue Squadron: The Phantom Affair
Obi-Wan learns what it means to be a good man outside the auspices of the Jedi.
Let this one long again, apologies etc. Havac won this.
I'd make a joke about Thrawn being so photogenic he lands a spot on the cover of a book he isn't in, but I'm sure you guys have that covered.
Luke and Mara investigate the outcome of Outbound Flight, run into a new 501st legion that's better than the old one because Thrawn made it, argue with a Force-fearing cluster of survivors because a Jedi hurt them before and they can fend for themselves dammit, fight a droideka because Phantom Menace was pretty cool and Tatooine Ghost already did the podracer thing, and get betrayed by the one non-human or Chiss species prominently featured in the book who happen to be genocidal slavers because the Unknown Regions are dangerous son.
Luke and Mara join a bonus Fel kid and a Chiss who isn't Thrawn on a mission to figure out what happened to Outbound Flight, except the adorable victim aliens turn out to be evil slaver pirates, so the Jedi, Fel, and four super-badass stormtroopers kill slaver scum and never actually find out enough to spoil the book Outbound Flight, which they'd better hope comes out IU just like the prequel DVDs.
Ah yes, Chak Fel. I remember you.
Luke and Mara versus a hallway.
