Damn they need to make some more movies and use Mark Hamill as a 60 year old Luke Jedi Master who is re-establishing the Jedi Order.

It's hard for him to be dead when he isn't alive yet... Since this takes place several centuries, probably MILLENNIA before the prequels, it'll be strange if anybody from the movies appears. Also, since the game takes place 300 years after KotOR, I doubt we'll encounter any non-droids from those games, as well. Here's hoping HK-47 didn't get dismantled!

Edit~ Sorry, I misunderstood; I thought the question meant "Why isn't he in-game?" Again, I apologize, but my comment still stands for reference.

George Lucas will rehire Karen Travis to kill Luke off. Who else can make such a Travesty? Who else is more hated among the EU authors? Who else hates Jedi and wants to put them in the place?

NO! His death should just be a mystery, because no author would be able to write it in such a way that everybody likes it.

And so continues the legacy of K-Canon.

Now, I know that Crix Madien died in Darksaber (Not sure how or why!)- By Kevin Anderson , and Chewbaca died in Vector Prime-R.A Salvador (still haven't gotten over it), and that Mara Jade died in Legacy of the Force 1- Betrayal- By Aarron Allston. But, whatever happened to the rest of them? Han Solo, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker Jaina Solo?
Mara didn't die in Legacy of the Force 1 - Betrayal. She died in Legacy of the Force 5 - Sacrifice. As to the others, their deaths haven't been written yet because the books haven't progressed far enough in the timeline, yet.

Fate of the Jedi just wrapped up. Big surprise, the good guys live! That's as far as we've gotten in the timeline, aside from LEGACY which takes places almost a century after that. All we know about Luke's death is that he gets his father's gift of choosing his afterlife image, as his Force-spirit looks like a youthful Luke, not a 60+ year-old Luke. Killing off Luke, Leia, or Han would be a major event in a Star Wars book, even if it were illness or old age that did it. We may not see it happen; Del Rey may just quit at a certain point, and leave the galaxy alone for a time after Jag Fel's been made Emperor and Jaina (or another Jedi, possibly, one who disagrees with the direction of Luke's Order or just really digs Fel's take on things in the Empire, and Jaina grudgingly goes along with it) starts up the Knights of the Empire organization. That way 'nothing major' will happen for a period of decades, allowing a few generations to pass before the Fel Empire grows corrupt from within, under the Emperor's nose, and allies with the One Sith to take back the galaxy in LEGACY. And that's fine by me! Let Han, Leia, and Luke (and Lando!) get 'offscreen' deaths, at some unknown point in the 'peaceful' period.

He reestablishes the Jedi Order when he's in his 30s, actually. It's all chronicled in a number of books. By the time Luke's in his 60s, the New Jedi Order is already well-established!

You guys do know all of the story continues decades after the original trilogy through an expanded univer that is considered in canon with the movies, right?

If he was still alive, I would say David Gemmell could have done it right. The guy was an excellent writer. Now, of the authors still alive today, Brad Meltzer is about as close as you could get.

Actually, no. C-Canon is different than G-Canon, and as far as Lucas is concerned, nothing after RotJ takes place. He reserves the right to retcon the entire ExU after Return of the Jedi IF he indeed decides to make more movies later.

About the only things in the ExU that George must be consulted on are the deaths of movie characters. Crix Madine and Chewbacca are the only two so far, to the best of my knowledge. In the case of General Madine, George just shrugged and said "Ok". Now, in Chewie's case, he actually asked R.A. Salvatore to do it when the idea was passed to him for review.

As far as Lucas is concerned the EU is a separate universe. It doesn't just have to do with post ROTJ.
