    Given that she might well have suspected Tarkin was ultimately more motivated by his own ambition than loyalty to the Emperor, and his general arrogance and disdain for women and rivals, I'm sure that image appeared in her head, too. :cool:

    given that Tarkin's last female rival was Daala, that is not saying much.;)

    Mara slaying Tarkin, it could work if he had not died on the Death Star (literally his death star, it blew like a star going supernova and then he died.)

    With all the excitement, I completely forgot that Alison Scagliotti has already wielded a (DIY) lightsaber. She and her character are both huge SW nerds, so the look on her face is priceless. Wish I could find the clip of them killing some spiderdroids with it.

    Damn. Sounds like Karen Gillian's hair will not be appearing on Mara. That's a blow for us.
    Who'd have ever thought that Amy Pond would be our main source for the existence (or not) of Mara Jade? Weird, but cool.

    On the other hand: If Joss is happy, I'm happy.

    With all of this confusion about which is canon, A, B, C, D or whatever, I am choosing what is in MY Star Wars canon. And Mara Jade Skywalker is alive and well in it!

    There's still hope. Not much, but we haven't heard anything to suggest she won't exist in Episode 7.
    At this point it seems they want us to be grateful for whatever scraps of the Star Wars we loved in the years since the OT they've decide to make "official".

    If canon is going to be merely Episodes I-IX & the Clone Wars Series, then I shall have my own canon which will include Mara Jade. Frankly, I am rather perturbed that I have to say "Legends," instead of "EU." For over ten years I have used the abbreviation EU or Expanded Universe.

    Mara will never lose her appeal.

    Got into another little Mara debate on the 7SA forum (in the context of a few of us hoping Mara will appear in Rebels at some point), and ended up on a late-night rant about what Mara means to me. Reposting here for comments and criticism:

    Was at a bookstore today and looked at the Star Wars Card Game. I was thrilled Mara was included in the game:

    Thank you! I know it's a little thing but that seriously bugs me.

    Does anyone know what Mara did with her purple lightsaber after she received Anakin's Episode III/Luke's Episode IV-V lightsaber?

    She lost her purple lightsaber to Lumiya shortly after ROTJ, well before Luke gave her Anakin's. That's why she doesn't have a saber when Luke first meets her in HTTE, and why Anakin's saber is the only one she ever uses throughout her Jedi career.

    Did anyone ever play Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith starring Mara Jade?

    [IMG]

    I have only played Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.

    Yes I did. I still have it. Some of Mara's remarks were funny.

    Could you describe some highlights from the game? I never even saw any trailers or content from it. :)

    You start out playing as Kyle Katarn through the first half of the game. He's training Mara in the first scene and he goes off in an adventure after Imperials invade. Halfway thru the game you now control Mara Jade. She has her usual snarky remarks along the way. She eventually finds out Kyle has succumbed to the dark side and battles him, but drops her blade so he's forced to kill her. He can't and comes back to the Light side.

    I'm so paraphrasing. There's so much more involved, including Mara at Cloud City. Here are some pics"

    It would be wonderful if Disney would make a collection of the Jedi Knight Franchise (including Mysteries of the Sith) for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. They could update the graphics while they are at it. :)

    Mara is awesome! She is by far one of the best EU Characters of all time! :)
