Well, as favorite character killers go she's the worst.
I was pissed off at R.A Salvatore for killing Chewie, but I got over it seeing how good Han Solo is as a solo character, even though he tends to get saddled with a new sidekick every 5 minutes...

She offed Mara Jade.

Nuff' said.
When all is said and done we're not the only ones who look at life this way: That's what the Sith lords say.
And if they'd ever change as that reminds to say. But every time I see them makes me wish I had a gun. If I thought that I was crazy well I guess I'd have more fun.

Again not all jedi are Kenobi, Windu, Skywalker....or they werent supposed to be, actually now they are.

NVM.
When did the jedi become the best at everything? Last I checked, they still had their faults.

Spolier
Out of the main cast of Star Wars OT or EP4-6 . 1 Jedi ,2 Robots, 2Humans , 1 Wookie
Ofcourse it ranged from EP4 2Jedi , 2 Droids 2 Humans , 1 Wookie
to EP5-6 1 Jedi , 2 Droids , 3 Humans , 1 Wookie

Seems StarWars was about alot more than just Jedi but I guess if you only cared about Jedi than yeah............
Edit, so yeah Jedi are usually in the main spot light but a good writer will do things outside of the very known and over done story of Jedi and Sith................Thankgod for those who think outside the Box and like to do new things

Yea, because the whole saga totally isn't about Anakin Skywalker's fall to the Dark Side and Sith-hood and his redemption back to the Light Side. The "Return of the Jedi" title isn't referring to Luke.

its funny how you cant write anything for Lucas Arts without getting express written permission to change ANY storyline. So, if as you said in the above quote did this on her own , I would ask you how?

And she didnt have a hard on for Mandos, she just told the story from their point of view . So yeah she made the Jedi/ Sith look terrible because from a Mando point of view they are terrible. Almost all of the wars in the Star Wars universe are started by Jedi and Sith either going after each other or they are trying to change how a culture acts using their own sense of morality.

The difference between Jedi and Sith is that the Sith are up front about who they are , Jedi are not.

I always thought it referred to the return of the Jedi order.

No. According to G-Canon (the movies) Luke is the last of the Jedi. The "Return of the Jedi" title refers to Darth Vader becoming Anakin Skywalker again and returning to the Light Side as a Jedi. What do you think Luke's whole "I am a Jedi, like my Father before me" spiel was about?

Ask anyone. ANYONE who the main character of episodes 4-6 was.

Here is a hint: NOT DARTH VADER, hell in a new hope he isnít even the MAIN VILLIAN, let alone the main character.

The OT was a story about the rise of LUKE SKYWALKER. LUKE, not ANNIE.

if you had asked Lucas this before he made the prequels and sold his soul for money while turning his back on everything he used to believe in (Iíd like to give GL the benefit of the doubt, but the best I can come up with as an alternate explanation is that he became senile). He would've said the same thing.
