When Nomi decides this party's over, this party's over.
In which everything takes place within the space of about a week, because there is no breathing room in the story at all.
Exar Kun executes Order 66 on a much smaller scale.
A shakespeareian story about pride, betrayer, corruption, fratricide and honour in an legendary age; and the only thing people remember is Kun's double bladed lightsaber
And Zorrixor nabs a much deserved win. While it's impossible to highlight all of TOTJ's flaws in one sentence, he does get one of the bigger ones.
Alas, poor Yorick, I've lost your skull.
A troubled human wants to be alone so he goes to a snowy place, builds a big ice sculpture, is later followed by a girl who teaches how to use love to control the powers, and someone learns to let go.
Vima Jeep helps Ulic Qel-Droma find redemption when no one else could, only for Ulic to tragically die at the hands of some random dude with a blaster.
This year's Luke Skywalker's facsimile is a 14-year-old girl who makes Ahsoka look polite.
TotJ KJA: Redemption.
If Vader had survived RotJ (and hadn't been locked up for life for his crimes), I imagine him trying to live with himself would have been something like this story.
Ulic gets redeemed, but Nomi's still stuck being awful.
Ulicus Wins this round.
Looking over The List, it occurs to me that we're missing a Traviss book.
This should be fun
I was so close! 162 pages, and I still haven't succeeded.
The origin of Cad Bane (He's Duros) contradicts Karen Traviss, who contradicts the existence of a final volume, because of being contradicted, leaving contradictory accounts of the Mando'a.
I don't like the cover on this one, outside of the armour - and you need to have played the RC game to recognise it as SW since it is rather generic - there is really noting that says Star Wars beside the STAR WARS title: the building, the action, the equipment, the ship, the armour; everything is just so generic.
I legit feel bad. The Yorick comment was gold.
Though, I admit, I didn't even see it, until now.
I thought we'd done this one already.
Despite the title, this book contains about two pages of commandoing, a couple chapters of Imperials, and an awful lot of women, some literally kidnapped, swooning over hunky armored Mandalorians in the kitchens of their farmhouses.
These are easy when you know the right answer.
It's fine. I'll get you next time! ...maybe.
You forget the mandatory accompanying picture!
WHY IS MY LIST INCOMPLETE
Ugh. I guess I'm going to have to actually do my job and pore over this thread, cataloging what's already been done.
Until then, here's something I know hasn't been done.
Stole my joke. In that case:
That insane Michael Jackson Jedi from Invasion finally has a backstory–clearly, he was insane even then.
