I really do not like what is happening to the Jedi Order after the Vong invasion, and the way that Denning is handling that transformation is giving me high hopes for the future of the EU. Spoilers, duh, but just in case, you know, blah blah We have seen various times through the Joiner King the Jedi Knights really pushing it with their abuse of Force powers. Luke drew upon the force so much in order to save his and Mara?s life that he began to transform ala Palpatine. Mara was ready to take off Jaina?s head after the young Solo almost derided Luke by comparing him to the Dark Lord. Even after getting pissed at Jaina for that statement Mara used Force lightning to attack an enemy. She did not deflect it in self-defense; she outright conjured the lightning and zapped the crap out of her attackers! Luke?s first reaction from getting pissed of at Welk was to Force Choke the Dark Jedi, and he barely pulled back before going to far, much to the chagrin of Mara. This is beginning to become dangerous for the Jedi Order. If Master Kenobi or Master Yoda were alive to see what Luke was allowing the Jedi to become they would be terrified. Luke has allowed his Jedi to rationalize the use of the Dark Side, ?for the greater good?. Yoda said the Force was used for Knowledge and Defense, never for attack. Apparently the time Luke has spent around Dark Lords like C`Boath and Palpatine have finally caught up with him. Denning has really done a great job of brining the future of the Order into the main plot-line. This should be good.
