This is something that bothered me reading it even though I'm not too familiar with SW lore. Wasn't KOTOR 2 all about finding the last surviving Jedi masters with the aim of rebuilding the order? I can't remember how long after KOTOR 2 the book was set, but I was very confused about where all the new Jedi sprung from. And how they rebuilt the archives so quickly. Plus Bastila becoming a completely different character, going from a sassy know it all to stay at home mum. Am I missing something obvious or was it just poor writing?

The difference is Shakespeare was writing a play. "He dies" is a stage direction, the audience never reads or hears it. There was no point in Shakespeare penning a dramatic, long winded description of the death, it's the job of the director and the actor playing King Lear to portray the death to the audience.
