I just finished reading Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan
over the weekend and found it a good read. Drew Karpyshyn knew he had a tough road ahead of him on this one but I thought he did a fairly good job of bringing the main characters and events from the KotOR games into this new story.
I still wonder how George Lucas feels about or if he is even aware of the way the Force has been portrayed in the Old Republic era. First it was the wound in the Force and potential destruction of the Force in KotOR II: TSL.
Now it's this void in the Force created by the Emperor on his home planet
