Seriously, though. Why not? Why not bring her back? Lucas is known for his inconsistencies and rewrites. Might as well get some good out of the whole mess.

Or, if she is to remain dead, at least make her death mean something! No good came of it. Jacen/Caedus whatever just decided to kill her because Karen Traviss is a jealous **** who decided to kill off most guys' Perfect Star Wars Hottie.
Lol, trolling because I disagree with what you say? Honestly, shes hot and all, but I think she was a bit of a boring character. Derp Im an Emperors Hand, now Im in love with the savior of the Force.

I wasn't too happy with Mara Jade being killed off, but in all honesty I was more upset with them killing off Anakin Solo in Star by Star.

Granted Jacen's going Sith probably would have ended a lot sooner with Anakin beating the crud out of his older brother, but then Darth Caedus was extremely annoying.

Anakin often seemed like he was on the Autistic Spectrum and so I could kinda relate to the charecter.

Point being Mara Jade isn't likely to come back, nor is Anakin Solo.

There were only two characters that would have made sense...Leia or Mara. I knew Lucas would not allow Leia to be killed off yet, however. That left Mara. So when Sacrifice was released and I saw Mara on the cover I knew I was right and I hated it.

All that said, Mara Jade is dead and I have come to accept that. SHe is not going to return to life no matter how much we want her back. To do so would mean rewriting half the Legacy and the ENTIRE Fate series of novels as well as others that have mentioned the death of Mara Jade Skywalker. I'm sorry, but I cannot support your petition, no matter how much I would love to have our bad-assed redhead back.
There are ways that she could come back.

I could outline a way to do it. One that would make sense.

Outline of how to make Mara's resurrection work:

Spoilers regarding the last FotJ book contained, and needed, to make this work.

Spoiler


So, here is the set up...

This unnamed Force User plans on taking on Luke Skywalker, or he plans on doing something that he doesn't want Skywalker interfering with. He knows the best way to throw off Skywalker is with family, as was shown when he fell to pieces over Mara in Legacy of the Force. So he does something that can only be described as evil...

He clones the wife of Luke Skywalker, the mother of Ben Skywalker, but leaves her new self a mindless empty husk. Then, returns to the place of Mara's rest and takes her, using a rare Dark Side ritual. He returns to the land of the living and forces Mara inside of the empty clone husk.

Mara takes a shuddering breath as she is returned to life, but then her body screams out in pain as the device she awakens in begins to torture her. She has never felt such pain, regardless of her Jedi training her cloned body is fresh, it has not developed the resistance to pain that her previous one did... This of course is done on purpose...

Mara's presence appears in the Force however in a bloom of pain and anguish. This is enough to shock both Ben and Luke from a slumber. They know that this is not a simple dream, and they don't know what to do.

Luke returns to the purgatory and finds Mara missing from there. Jacen Solo's wraith tells him that a Dark Man took her, then admonishes the Jedi Grandmaster for not killing the Dark Sider when they fought Abeloth earlier. Skywalker returns to his body and awakens.

He informs Ben that someone has taken Mara, and that she is suffering and in great pain. The father and son duo set off to find the person who did this and bring him to justice. They face a conundrum however... If Mara has been brought back to life somehow... What will they do...

The pair must embark on a dangerous quest that will test them in ways that they never thought they would be...

What? ... Oh come on... We have seen stupider explanations for resurrections before.

I'll admit i thought Mara's death was uncalled for, but Mara wont be coming back lol.. Luke Skywalker an Mara are both old characters. That part of Lukes life is over. I think its pretty naive to think George would bring her back. Although now Ben can flow-walk. Im prettly certain when Bens all grown up, after his fathers death. I can truely forsee him flow-walking an asking his father an mother for advice reguarding the next big event.

I was under the impression that Darth Krayt was the unnamed sith.

We don't actually know that. There is a chance that the Legacy Comics will get retconned because they are too restrictive for the Star Wars novels. They interfere with writing stories about Luke Skywalker who is still the most popular character in the EU.
