    All the furore over the release of Episode III has made me go back and search out some of the Star Wars Extended Universe novels that I devoured so furiously when I was a kid, out of the hope that immersing myself in the Original Trilogy and the books based around it would help block out some of the pain caused by the prequels They re essentially glorified, sanctioned fanfiction though the ten through twelve year old version of me didn t know that Shadows of the Empire was one of my favourit All the furore over the release of Episode III has made me go back and search out some of the Star Wars Extended Universe novels that I devoured so furiously when I was a kid, out of the hope that immersing myself in the Original Trilogy and the books based around it would help block out some of the pain cau...

    Rated by my SO, who likes it because Xizor makes a pretty awesome villain, and Dash Rendar is all kinds of awesome It answers some questions, fills up some lost time between Empire and Return, and features most of the SW movie cast.

    I lasted through 40 pages or so of this novel The concept sounded interesting a rival vs Darth Vader for the affections of the Emperor.But the problem is that the concept wasn t fully mined nor not even partially enough to make it interesting enough Further, every other chapter jumped to the Star Wars characters in which they rehashed stuff from the movies just like the crime lord character who was opposed to Vader I get that he hates Vader but do I have to hear it for pa...

    by Steve Perry, published in 1996.This Star Wars novel, Shadows of the Empire , fits exactly between the Star Wars movies The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and is even sanctioned by that Lucas guy As you recall Han is kinda frozen, Luke is not quite done his training and Lando has possession of the Falcon and Leia is, well Leia and Chewie still snarls a lot.What this novel does well is set a good fast pace of activities in the Star Wars universe and really fill in how Luke bui by Steve Perry, published in 1996.This Star Wars novel, Shadows of the Empire , fits exactly between the Star Wars movies The Empire Strikes B...

    I d heard good things about SoTE, had fond memories of the game, and honestly thought the plot sounded pretty good in summary Unfortunately, Steve Perry s execution of it was terrifically worthless He includes not one but two Gary Stus Dash Rendar and Prince Xizor This is generally a bad way to design characters However, the real problem with SoTE is that Perry never escapes the tropes of the SW universe I realize there is a fine line between repetitious, predictable tropes and the archet I d heard good things about SoTE, had fond memories of the game, and honestly thought the plot sounded pretty good in summary Unfortunately, Steve Perry s execution of it was terrifically worthless He includes not one but two Gary Stus Dash Rendar and Prince Xizor This is generally a bad way to design characters However, the real problem with SoTE is that Perry never escapes the tropes of the SW universe I realize there is a fine line between repetitious, predictable tropes and the archetypes and mythological patterns that are central to SW, but it seems like the editors could have kept this piece of clumsy fan fiction grade writing off the shelves Every character is motivated by murdered family members, everyone is a played out stereotype of a character with a few major traits that are turned up to the max, and all the action occurs in bursts of stereotyped scenes chase scenes, fight scenes, etc, which all ...

    This was my first foray into reading a genre book from a franchise I ve been watching the original Star Wars films with my daughter We haven t watched Return of the Jedi yet and, somehow, during some Web meandering, I discovered this book was written in the 90s to fill some narrative gaps between the TESB RotJ I like to try things I wouldn t normally do and reading a Star Wars book is definitely one of them The writing was all over the place in quality, in my opinion There d be passa This was my first foray into reading a genre book from a franchise I ve been watching the original Star Wars films with my daughter We haven t watched Return of the Jedi yet and, somehow, during some Web meandering, I discovered this book was written in the 90s to fill some narrative gaps between the TESB RotJ I like to try things I wouldn t normally do and reading a Star Wars book is definitely one of them The writing was all over the place in quality, in my opinion There d be passages where the content masked the simplistic writing, but once the story was mired down in an action sequence, the whole thing just got ridiculous I don t think I d ever seen exclamation points outside of dialogue in a book that wasn t aimed at children Luk...
