    My serious guess is that the romance is not for Ben (for once). Owen and Beru are also already a couple and a scruffy-looking stork has brought them a child, so new characters will get some love.

    My non-serious guess: Obi-Wan goes through a phase in which he goes into a bar, has a drink, chops some arms off and charms anyone he likes, night after night. But what happens when he starts having actual feelings? Will this romance end in tragedy? (Hint: it will)

    My more non-serious and more tragic guess: Obi-Wan had just bought a ring and was on his way to his girlfriend when he saw Tusken raiders attacking a boy...

    The romance element will confirm my long standing theory that Ben Kenobi had fathered twelve kids offscreen in ANH and that he was on the run from his second mistress when Luke found him out in the desert.

    Don't anyone give me that "Ben Skywalker can't just be offscreen in Epsiode 7" poodoo when Ben Kenobi had his kids running around offscreen all along!

    I'm fairly certain Obi-Wan is a microsoft user. :p

    What do you think Kenobi is trying to do? Start his own Jedi Council by blood? ;)

    I wonder what that would look like . . .

    "What do you think Master Kenobi?"
    "Well, Master Kenobi, i tend to agree with Master Kenobi. I think Master Kenobi's plan is a bit more reserved than Master Kenobi's"

    "Who are you?"
    "The new Obi-Two."
    "Who is Obi-Wan?"
    "You are Obi-Six."
    "I am not a number, I am a free man!"

    And now I have an Iron Maiden song stuck in my head (I still need to see The Prisoner).

    I'm confused. Where have you seen there's going to be a romance angle to this book?

    For being a Jedi who admonished Anakin so much, Obi sure seems to get a lot of action.

    This book sounds great! I think there is a lot of potential for interesting stories that can be told about Obi-Wan during this time period. I have not read anything by this author yet, but from what I have heard I think he will do a good job. I shall have to add it onto my list of books to check out.

    What if Mrs. Kenobi had enough after child number 8, and made Obi-Wan get the snip?

    He would then have to throw some clones into the mix, to ensure he has a 12 member Kenobi Council.

    "Hi, I'm Obi-Two, what's your name?"

    "My name is Obi-Twoo"

    Would he need twelve for that? Only three of them are allowed to talk at any given time. The rest could be dolls.
    Actually, only two have to be humans. One doll can have a small droid inside that chooses an obvious remark time to time.

    Obi-Wan: We are worried about the local Tusken tribes.
    Obi-Two: There could be an open war between settlers and Tuskens soon.
    Obi-3 (a droid): Bad, wars are. Stop them, we must.
    Obi-Four-To-Twelve: *looks at each other*

    New blurb, seen here.

    "The greatest hero in the galaxy faces his toughest challenge yet: He must stop being Obi-Wan-and become Crazy Old Ben. For fans of movie-related novels like Darth Plagueis!

    In this original novel set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to the aid of the residents of Tatooine during his exile. But he struggles with his new mission when he realizes that protecting Luke Skywalker-the last hope of the galaxy-means setting aside his compassion and his Jedi warrior training, for the future of the galaxy lies not with Obi-Wan Kenobi, but with a mystical desert recluse known only by the name of Crazy Old Ben.
