    The birth of the EU, plus blue-skinned genius Thrawn, sexy red head Mara Jade, and successful smuggler Talon Karde, and introducing the idea that clones of Force-sensitives are insane, oh and did we mention Thrawn yet?

    Jello's post is so damned good and so wickedly funny that Coop might as well just move on to Dark Force Rising. :p

    Indeed. I wonder if Jello can manage to subvert expectations (by not mentioning Thrawn or Pellaeon) for all three? ;)

    At this point, my expectations for Jello are roughly this:

    Anything else is sub-par.

    Challenge accepted.

    edit: That is, I_L's challenge -- yours might be a bit tougher to meet, Coop. :p

    This site is movie summaries, but a lot of them are hilarious.

    There was a thread in the Amph called the "propaganda versions" where we'd try to think of stuff like that for all sorts of movies. I should see if it's still open...

    And who are all these people who voted for Jello? and didn't vote for me:p I think that's the highest turnout this game has seen. Clearly changing the title works.

    New Rule: if Jello wins by more than ten votes, he has to be the Official Thread Title Changer in perpetuity.

    And part one of our Thrawn Trilogy extravaganza concludes with Jello earning 22 votes, which I'm pretty sure is the most ever for an entry, at least as of each round's conclusion. 22 also happens to be 11 more than Todd, the nearest competitor, so Jello also gets to change the title for me! Yay!!

    Dark Force Rising.

    Ackbar is arrested, and though he told them that it was a trap, nobody believed him.

    Luke rescues Mara from C'baoth so she can rescue him from C'baoth so he can rescue Karrde from Thrawn, Han gets to hang out with his childhood hero who founded the Rebellion and then ran off to start a solo rebellion because Mon Mothma is a giant fascist, Leia spends the whole book out in the sticks with a bunch of alien midget ninjas convincing them that they were exploited by Darth Vader and she's not exploiting them but also it's totally cool and special and stuff that she's Vader's daughter, and Thrawn gets one up on everyone because this is the middle book and TESB proved that's what happens in the middle.

    Thrawn uses the new tools he recently acquired and his impressive skills to gain a decided advantage against the New Republic.

    Leia rescues midgets from enslavement by proving their droids aren't cutting the grass as fast as they should be; meanwhile, Han loses a race to a fat bearded man who smokes a lot.

    Mon Mothma's a fascist because Garm Bel Iblis is a supreme godlike warrior nor unlike Kyle Katarn, Thrawn proves that the ESB way it the only way to win the middle book, Luke and Mara flirt shamelessly while rescuing Talon, Leia hangs out with the Noghri, and Han loses a race to some fat smoker

    To help fight the Imperial Grand Admiral who has been in the freezer so long that his skin's turned blue, Leia makes an alliance with a group of ninja midgets who never realised that her father was trying to turn them into Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtMidgets by poisoning their world.
