Which 'Han Solo trilogy'? The "new" one, or the really old one that was written before Zahn started the trend of writing Star Wars novels?Because I've only read the old one, but I don't really remember that much... I think most/all of it was based in the Corporate Sector (which should really be further explored in the EU).

Haven't been here in a while. oONew episode of TCW was EPIC. It's great to see Anakin and Ahsoka in action again. Also, I don't think Obi-Wan's been seen at all in this season save for holograms and such. It's awesome to see him back.

Well, my dad got in the TOR beta, and I decided to try it out.I made a Jedi Knight, and I'm enjoying the beta. I definitely like the conversation options, the way you can adjust the camera and the gameplay.

It'd be the "new" Han Solo Trilogy, then. The "old" one is now refered to as the "Han Solo Adventures." (Sorry for the late reply; didn't notice anyone had posted in here.)So to those of you who played in the TOR beta - would you say what you've experienced of the game has made you want it enough to justify paying the subscription fee? Because I'm still hesitant about that...~|ET|~

I played in the TOR Beta this past weekend. I played as a Jedi Knight first, but then a glitch made me not able to play, :upset: So I switched to a Sith Warrior. I LOVE the Sith Warrior! The chat options were EPIC! You could kill almost anyone you talked to! I am certainly getting TOR, no matter what the monthly fee is!

It gos without saying that Zahn does good stuff. So for star wars nerds it's rather essential reading, i would think most people have here read them before.Consider some stand alone novels. i'Jedi (Stackpole) may be one of my favorite books, and the Courtship of Princes Leia was also surprisingly good. I am currently reading Children of the Jedi, it's slow pace is made up for by its seriously funny jokes. It also has some great Gamorrean moments.

New Jedi Order?I haven't read the entire series but I've read most of it (though out of order).Traitor, by Matthew Stover is a definite purchase. It's about Jacen's time alone and with Vergere among the Yuuzhan Vong.

Legacy of the Force is good, sure, but I think you really need to know a lot about what happened in the New Jedi Order series to understand it. :PAnd Traitor is indeed a must for NJO. In addition to that I'd go with Vector Prime, A Unifying Force, and The Final Prophecy. Granted, that's literally the beginning and end, but if you're not going to just read the whole series, those are at least hte important parts haha.~|ET|~

I've already read I, Jedi and most of Zahn's work. Today I purchased the first Curuscant Nights book. Looks interesting.Probably get to reading NJO sometime in the future; I need a brake from really long series after finishing X-wing.

I just didn't like the parts with Durga, even though that's pretty much what the novel was supposed to be about. His plotline just seemed completely trivial and it just resolved itself. Daala and Pellaeon made an interesting pair... But throwing that in alongside Daala made it too busy.Oh, and Callista. I still don't like her. Especially because the rest of the book not about Durga or Daala is just spenting having her whine.Planet of Twilight was one of the books I got for Christmas and I plan on reading it when I finish the Correllian Trilogy (good read, by the way, if a little jumpy). I doubt it's going to change my opinion of her much.~|ET|~

I'm going to guess that Anakin, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan will fight to liberate slaves from Separatist control. And their ability to defeat Count Dooku is apparently dubious. And Darth Sidious will have a chilling cameo. And Wolffe will be back.(All lifted from the new Star Wars Insider, BTW.)

The starfighter action in this episode was very satisfying and so was the queens death. Despite Dooku's poor animation his character was nice in this episode. Is the reson why he never weres a cape because it is hard to animate?

I loved the fighter scenes.And maybe it's just me, since I still haven't really caught up with this season (doubt I will; reading summaries was enough for now), but has the entire season shown Anakin doing a lot of things with his Force abilities that they rather shied away from before? Like, all of the ridiculous jumps and tearing things open... I think there was less of that before. I could be wrong, of course, and just noticed it since I hadn't watched in a while.~|ET|~

Have those Z-95 Headhunter fighters appeared on the show before? They were cool.Did anyone else think the animation was a bit off in this episode? Or is it just the fact that I'm streaming it.
