its good, yeah, but I can read one in like, 15 minutes. NJO was great. well written and it really gave you a feeling of despair with all the deaths and all. my personal fav was the X-wing series, that one is good. My fav book, probably shatterpoint, shadows of the empire, or maybe some of Zahns stuff.

ok... i read a little of the new jedi order stuff, and thought the whole concept was stupid. Not part of the force is crazy, it contradicts star wars. I also didnt like the way they were from another galaxy...

Im not much for expanded stuff I just like the official stuff

1. how did it contradict the whole thing? almost every book slips up now again and gives someone the wrong color eyes, or a little bit of something. btw, check out www.theforce.net and there is new info on future EU books.

Hmm, maybe you should try reading all 19 books? I did. And I loved it. The series is really weird from the beginning.

spoiler:
The Yuuzhan Vong don't have the Force because the Force took itself away from them. They were being evil. Plus, it was the will of the force.


Plus, there is a thread about this. It is in the Star Wars: Expanded Universe section of Lucas Forums.

I think the NJO Series was the best series ever written.

And George Lucas considers it true Star Wars. In the beginning of Vector Prime, George Lucas approves of the series, and views it as true Star Wars.




- Former Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Star Wars: Battlefront II modder. Used to go by the name "Majin Revan."

Yes, because I'd love nothing better than to read 10 more books when the first nine were ridiculously stupid and almost made me throw away all my star wars books in disgust.

I read all the NJO books and I hated them.

ok, then thats ur thing. most of who read them, liked them. YJK was good, when I was young. Now, its corny. with Jacens tasteless jokes. I like his personality in NJO rather than in YJK.

Yeah, Jacen was aweomse in NJO...

"I'm all mad about being a jedi, I'm not using the force"

"Rargh, I want to complain about things, I'm not using the force"

"I just used the force, am I evil? I dunno."

way off, there. for starters, he wasnt angry. he didnt want to use the Force, because he had a vision and ddint want to tip thew balnce between light and darkside just because they were at war. and he used the Force to save his mom and didnt think he was evil. He was just thinking how it all goes together with his vision. and that personality is way better than, 'When do Tie fighters scream? They miss thier mothership, har har har'

I'd rather read corny jokes (like all kids make) than read some damned teenaged angst.

It was angst. It was young adult hormones and problems, he thought he was the most brilliant person in the universe and only he knew what was going on. BLEGH.

I agree, old EU was better, but NJO isnt much worse. It wasnt as good, but that didnt mean it wasnt good at all. and he was the one being mature, he had great skillin the Force and yes, he was arrogant alot through the book, especially at centerpoint station. but i the end, it all works out. if you bothered to finish it.

I love that sentence... it sounds even better coming from someone who likes EU. It basically says all EU is crap.

Chewbacca can't die it isn't physically possible...
I don't understand how you move a moon. I liked the battles of Star Wars because it was two almost equal sides. Those alien things were just supreme. Oh well, it isn't official so ... it is a matter of choice I guess.
