Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker was actually first published in 1976, prior to the theatrical release of Star Wars. I can't recall the novelizations of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi all that well, but the prologue and other details in the novelization of the first film do make it worth reading.

While Splinter of the Mind's Eye borrowed some elements from early Star Wars script drafts (the Kaiburr Crystal, for example), it was not written before Star Wars. It was written to provide the basis for a low-budget sequel if the first movie was not financially successful, and thus was published in early 1978.
