Thrawn was so popular, I heard the character has been made cannon in recent times. So, yeah. He's kinda a big deal in star wards nerd circles.
So, he's got a good reputation. And, if he's helping to write some of the SWTOR story, it's a good thing.

Let's be honest also. I mean, really, could the story get any worse? It's pretty obvious they need some help in the story telling department. I guess they ran out of creative juice some time ago.
Ah, he was Thrawn's creator was he. Then I rescind my sarcastic pant crapping and put in a real pant crapping instead.

Before the, prequals and now sequals, Star wars fans were forced to read books for a new "Star Wars" tale. I am NOT a big reader...I just don't enjoy stories that much...I don't even know what made me read it, but one day I picked up Heir to the Empire because I must have been bored to death...it changed my freaking life. It was the best Star Wars story (or any story) I had ever heard/read/seen...it captivated me like no book ever has. I finished all 3 "Thrawn Trilogy" books in a week (I never read a chapter a week prior to that). The story, the feel, the settings...they were PERFECT!

Zahn represents an author who understands Star Wars. He respects the lore. He understand the 'feeling' of it...he's nothing short of amazing imo. The guy just GETS it...better than Lucas even did. Thrawn was such an amazing character...he blew me away.
All warfare is based on deception ē If his forces are united, separate them ē If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near ē A leader leads by example not by force

Here is a bit more information on him.

I think that Zahn's involvement with SWTOR is a good thing. If it works out, hopefully he'll stick around to continue lending a helping hand in the story .
