I think someone today that becomes a Star Wars fan would only see the "over the top" as the norm.Oh.. Im also not a fan of the total lack of force (the Vong) if it is in all things.. just seems all wrong to me.
I am 38 years old. I grew up on Star Wars. I love the movies. I also love the Expanded Universe a lot. I do not feel that Jedi/Sith are so overpowered. SOME may be but most are not. Luke, his son Ben and Jaina are and should be. The son and grandchildren of the Chosen One are expected to have this "uberness" you speak of. However, they also have had their tails kicked in and have been near death a few times. To me this makes them less "uber" than you think.

As for the Vong...one of the best enemies the Jedi have ever faced. The fact that they were cutoff from the Force and could not be detected through it was a freat idea. It presented a weakness the Jedi were not prepared for. It surprised them and it took a while for them to recover from and overcome it. Sticking to the movies so tightly only limits, and hurts, the franchise. There are limits but the movies should not be those limits.

Also, I think Mandalorians should be one level below Jedi, maybe two. But to be on the same level or even higher like Traviss made them out to be is going too far. Her Mandos were a perfect example of your "uberness".

what bothers me is the names of the Darths. Or really any of the villians. A guy who can raise the dead is Darth Andeddu and he looks like an egyptian mummy? Or how about Savage Opress.. really why don't we call the next guy Big Evil Man.

Thread-Starter, if the "Uberness" can be covered with a good and interesting story to work off of, how can it be rendered lame?

Isn't the story all that matters (along with dialogue... which comes with story) and "uberness" is another part of the stroy that contributes to it to make it dramatic or something?

Yes there are limits, and that limit is the bad story... easy way out... like:

A Darth in the Sith Order (in some timeline) is aware of a rebellion brewing in the edges of the galaxy and can be considered a threat. He thinks something in his mind and those planets explode. The End.

Yes... bad. DERP. It's all in the way that the "uberness" is used and how good the main plot is.

Sooo.... DERP.

Please refer to Luke EU, Vong series

or Darth Krayt, Sidious, or Vader.

Luke did next to nothing in the Vong series.

Vergere was the Mary Sue of that one.
