The X-Wing series is really good too.

Mace WIndu: Shatterpoint. It is just brilliant, i can't stress it enough. if Shatterpoint isnot best novel in the entire EU, it comes in very, very close behind.

The Republic Commando books are quite readable, even though they're not about the Rule of Two as you've asked. The four books (Hard Contact, Triple Zero, True Colours, and Order 66) follow two squads of clone commandos from the beginning of the Clone Wars up till the execution and immediate aftermath of Order 66. Personally I thought the fifth book, Imperial Commando, was crap though. And it doesn't help that Karen Traviss basically spat in the face of her SW fans rather than give closure on story threads she introduced in IC.
You just cant let it go can you? There cant be one single EU book thread without someone crying over this issue when it wasnt even asked about.
Pyrotechnic - BH / Powertech
Ariss - Agent / Op
Lord Monger - Sith Inquisitor / Sorc
Darth Brutalus - Sith Warrior / Jugg

Yeah. Apocalypse now meets Star Wars!
Some others I'd recommend are Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, Truce at Bakura, and the Revenge of the Sith novelization. I personally enjoyed Jedi Trials as well. There's also Vector Prime which was pretty...controversial in some ways.

P.S. I've read Revan and Fatal Alliance, but somehow haven't gotten around to Deceived. What do you folks think of it?
In the Imperial Army, it takes more courage to retreat than to advance.
