I personally feel that the authors destroyed Han Solo, in every book before NJO, he was strong and loved his family, now it seems that he has completly abadoned them and I don't think he would have. I also don't like how the Vong seem to be a invulnerable foe, and how the Jedi get blamed for everything. I hope the newer books correct this.
