    We refer to the Skywalkers by their first names.

    We could call Rhett "Galen", I suppose, but it doesn't suit him as well, and only one of them really was Galen Marek. And I'm not convinced it was any of the guys we played.

    I'd find a way to argue for the sake of it....but your profile pic would go back in time and stop me from doing so.....probably causing convoluted timey-wimeyness...
    So I'll save him the trouble.

    Or maybe.....maybe he DID! Causing this response! We can never know...

    Of course. What sounds more dramatic; walking on sunshine or killing sunshine?

    SKYwalker, actually...

    Both are far more melodramatic than having your "hero" be called "John Smith." Unless its [link=http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Doctor]that[/link] "John Smith."

    Pretty much a Star Wars M*A*S*H pastiche, but they have people who aren't doctors, everybody's drunk all the time (except for the droid, but he's trying), and they're forced to have a plot.

    The personnel of a mobile army surgical hospital engage in many adventures and shenanigans whilst trying to patch up wounded soldiers in the midst of a nigh endless war that some of them have difficulty justifying, all the while trying to avoid severe personality conflicts from bringing the whole thing crashing down . . . oh wait hang on, was it Medstar that you wanted me to summarize??

    One of the few Clone Wars books that actually gives us living Sepi troops and a Hutt officer of the Republic, sadly only as side notes….

    An underrated book where a young Jedi struggles to understand why the clones she was leading continue to fight even though they are largely thought of as 'droids that bleed' by much of the high command.

    The book that reminds me why I'm glad no one has tried (or at least succeeded) to remake or "modernize" or make a sequel to the classic M*A*S*H TV series, as it would only end up really grim, depressing, and not funny at all (though the book itself is mostly readable, just not memorable), with too much angst and attempts at serial plots full of their idea of supposed drama with not enough humor or optimism to balance it out (and if there really is a M*A*S*H remake, I don't want to know).

    The novel that continued to wreck canon with an nth clone of Galen Marek/Starkiller/Rhett who behaves like an overly attached boyfriend/serial stalker toward Juno and through some deus-ex-machina brings her back to life while Boba Fett half-asses his attempt to capture him

    The Force Unleashed 2: the sequel to a book based on a video game that's based on a George Lucas almost not approved story by Haden Blackman, written by Sean Williams, based on the Star Wars Universe.
