Thanks for the advice. I'll try and push on. And yeah, this terrorist story is not grabbing me at all.
I feel the terrorist arc is there to give you more insight in the Imperial Intelligence service. A side we rarely to never see in other Star Wars media. Unlike the Jedi (d'oh)/Sith (d'oh)/Smuggler (Solo)/Bounty Hunter (Fett). Personally, I found that a great aspect of the story. Instead of blindly throwing someone into a scenario he or she isn't even remotely familiar with, will make no sense.
After that arc, it gets into a slipstream and it becomes perfectly clear why
the Agent story is loved by so many.
