There are so many holes in the story since Makeb/Oricon that its a wonder anything stays in.

IDK about anyone else, but when I started my writing career, I was told "Show not tell" - And that still holds true as much now as it ever did.

But yeah, Monolith. Thing on Gravestone and fearsome creature(s) on Ziost. - and droids on Iokath All under utilized IMHO. - Shame that all those brains couldn't come up with a different name for each.

I believe it's some kind of energy source.

The funny thing is that a few days ago I saw something similar in the game called "Agents Of Mayhem" : A spaceship or something like that fuelled by a giant crystal.

In Expandec Universe - now Legends - there was once a giant crystal on Yavin 4 which contained lots of souls of ... people. I think even Jedi and Sith alike.
Always reminded me of the Thought Bomb.

Maybe it's a monster Inc. reference and it runs off scary whispers you can't really understand.

When it wasn't explained in KOTET I assumed that it was intended as a red herring to misdirect player expectations.

Admittedly, that's an awfully charitable theory that gives BW a lot more credit than their recent storytelling abilities deserve.

Well, a few things are even better in remaining unexplained ... like Tom Bombadil, for example ...
