    I actually love that that's in there and no one even raises an eyebrow about it.

    I'm not so much freaked out by her being a Bothan than freaked out because she looks like Richard Nixon.

    I think this was the first couple I ever shipped. Thanks for retroactively ruining my burgeoning adolescence, TOR.

    Blame the dark side, man.

    No, seriously, Hobbie and Janson were under the influence of the Sith temple in the area.

    Well, I already promised LI the next one would be about spy fiction . . . but maybe I can fit it in.

    But especially in attack of the clones. I'll just list my top five quotes even though no one asked.

    Anakin: "It seems an obvious thing to you, but where I grew up there weren't any lakes. Whenever I see this much water, every detail of it..."
    Padme: "Amazes you?"
    Anakin: "And pleases me."

    Padme: "I love the water."
    Anakin: "I do too, I guess it comes from growing up on a desert planet."

    "If Master Obi-wan was here, he would be very grumpy." - Anakin

    "I'm not going to give into this," she said with all the conviction she could muster. "I have more important things to do than fall in love."- Padme

    Padme: "That sounds an awful lot like a dictatorship."
    Anakin: "Well, if it works..."

    That's what happens when Anakin goes off-script. Should have listened to Tag.

    Hello ladies! Look at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn't me. But if he starts endorsing a totalitarian dictatorship, he could share the same political views as me. Look down, back up- where are you? You're on a moisture farm, in Tattooine, and I just slaughtered an entire tribe of Tusken Raiders. Anything is possible when your man is an emotionally unstable Jedi Padawan. I'm on a shaak.

    clean romance in the context of a overarching story is fine, but a actual star wars romance book.... no way!!

    Why not? We have Westerns (Daley Han Solo Books and Kenobi), Hurt Comfort (Wild Space, Children of the Jedi), Heist (Scoundrels), Military (Republic Commando, X-Wing), Crme (Shadows of the Empire, Scourge), Philosophies (Shatterpoint, Traitor), Horror (Death Troopers, Red Harvest), Political Thrillers (Cloak of Deception, Plagues) and Gorn (Crucible, Star by Star) Why not a full Romance?

    No No No

    That's not romance. It's PWP.

    Tatooine Ghost had a strong romance theme. That's as far as it should go though.

    Wouldn't Courtship of Princess Leia fall under romance? Been awhile since I read it but close enough from what I remember.

    I think that one would be an example of why Star Wars authors shouldn't focus on romance.
