Really starting in Dark Nest, Ben and Jacen had a great relationship. Then it happened. Were they good together? Was Ben a good padawan? Jacen a a good Master?

I must say Jacen wasn't the best master. He started off with some clever ways for Ben to embrace his Jedi heritage by playing games with Ben without him knowing what was the purpose for those games; it was much better than Luke and Mara's approach of "use the Force, Ben" Very Happy But then Jacen got caught up more in his personal feelings for others that he started to overlook Ben and throw Ben into situations where he needed more guidance as a young Jedi than as a soldier, mainly in Bloodlines. I thought it was an interesting start but a disappointing, tragic falling out at Sacrifice.

I loved their relationship ! In LotF they were my favorite characters.
In Betrayal it was at it's best, I thought their scenes were funny especially the one at the beginning. and the way Ben looks up to Jacen is adorable Very Happy
I was disappointed to about the way it ended too. I hoped it would have lasted for longer in the series. and starting from bloodlines Jacen was being manipulative and I was disappointed at the way it was turning out.
In darknest I liked them too but we don't see much of it. I hope there will be a book between that time that shows their relationship like in bloodlines.

You know of all the pairings this would feel fitting. The Padawan of Mara's training her son.
