It will be interesting to see if they'll bring over Daala. Her back story with Tarkin was one of the few things I liked about her, and if they do then we may get a better understanding of the data mining they'll be doing from the old EU.

I'm very curious as to the "time" this is supposed to take place.

I hope they release more info soon.

Oh no. I forgot about Daala. Ewww, just the thought of those Daala-Tarkin love scenes.

Yeah, I was gunna say, Daala/Tarkin was an instant "blah!" on her character forever.

What I am wondering is if this book will bring in a lot of new potential story lines. I think with all the connection points in Darth P, this book could created a lot of new "canon". Could be quite interesting.

I'm going to enjoy Darth Plagueis not being canon for as long as possible. And I really hope it stays that way. Razz

I love Darths. Which is why I am picky about them. :p

There were so many that hated Plagueis, I loved it. Really added the the films and created a great character as well as expanding Sidious. I keep seeing a lot of people merely finding Plagueis too alien to relate to, is that it?

I loved the character of Plagueis. I really enjoyed the first 2 parts of the novel. Palps beginning was brilliant! The politics didn't bother me either. I like that kind of stuff. I hate, hate, hate, that Plagueis was alive during TPM and that he basically did all of Palps' planning for him.

See I thought that was brilliant because it revealed that Palpatine basically manipulated him into setting everything up. He had figured out long before that Plagueis's obsession with immortality would be a liability so he used his money and connections and then kicked him aside.

I didn't get that out of the novel, personally. i know Palps went on that whole speech at the end but I didn't think that was proof enough that Palps was in control. Of course that's what Palps would say. He was trash talking. Even if what you say was what Luceno intended, I thought it was weak. But to each his own.

Fair enough. I know a few others who dislike it as well, not surprising. I just like discussing it lol
