as I recall this is one of the things that they are not allowed to actually write about just like they are not allowed to write about Yoda's race.

IIRC didn't George Lucas state somewhere that Luke dies peacefully with no further details.

One good thing to come from his death though, is that since there can't be any other more powerful then Luke/Sidious they pretty much set and stopped the bar from going any higher. So there won't be any further craziness with the force(even though it can do pretty much anything), not that I am against it or anything but it should make people happy.

It only means there won't be any Jedi or Sith as powerful, that is the loophole.

I say Luke will die when writing books about him becomes unprofitable
"bibo ergo sum" ( I drink, therefore I am)

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

Personally I wouldn't mind it if this is how he dies. It may not be as sexy as going out in a blaze of glory fighting a thousand bounty hunters and Rancors but it'd be nice to see all those years of service rewarded.

Mr. Lucas said that Luke is the most powerful force user, lightsaber duelist etc. He never gave him the "Jedi" qualification.

Sidious was give the most powerful "Sith" title.

Luke is absolute (at least with regards to mortals).

So what?

It is "a Long time ago in a galaxy far far away," with technology that is so far beyond ours.

In Star Trek (which is based in our "reality") humans live for 120+ years in the 24th century.

My point is just because we as a population cannot live that long now, does not mean it is beyond the realm of possibility.

As to the specific question of Luke dying. Somehow, I have a feeling he will not die in any chapter in any book. What the authors will do is simply stop writing about that particular generation of characters and their kids. Someone will write a SW novel that takes place generations after the main characters we all know and love are gone. They will be mentioned as heroes of the Rebel Alliance/New Republic/Galactic Alliance/Jedi Order from generations past but that is all.

luke is not stronger than yoda was in his prime. he isnt even as strong as anakin was. he can do some pretty remarkable things, but after that hes pretty much pooped out for the rest of the fight. lukes greatest strength lies in his allies and his strength of character.

that being said, i do think he will die at the end of this series to make room for Ben Skywalker to grow as a character. theyve spent a lot of time in this series showing how much the order needs luke, which leads me to believe his death will be the setup for the conflict in the next series.
