I don't know if it's right or wrong, but the authors definitely go out of their way to describe the characters they want us to think are attractive.

I'm a really visual person, so when I was reading the books, let's say from the NJO onwards (because that's when Jaina and co. hit maturity) I formed a mental picture of what Jaina looked like from the verbal descriptions, which can be pretty detailed, and that image sticks with me from then on, but the American novel covers only really show the film characters. A couple of years later I discovered the Japanese covers, and it really blew me away, some of them are so lifelike, and most of the characters really did look the way I'd visualised. So I definitely think Jaina's cute, and Mara's not bad either. (remember though, Mara is actually based on the appearance of actress Shannon McRandle, who I've met! lol Wink )

Shannon McRandle isn't anything like I pictured Mara. The cover of Sacrifice and most NJO pictures are really close though.
