    Same here.

    2-1B rocks my socks off.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    I'd have to say it's a toss up between the rise of Kyle Katarn in Dark Forces and the rise of Luke Skywalker between the Dark Empire era and the Crimsion Empire era.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Every day I'm shovelin'...

    Well, now that the Fate of the Jedi series is over, there have been many "series" of SW EU (meaning two/three or more books in the same storyline) novels over the years. Here's a little Bel-Cam ranking, for those interested in reading them/avoiding them/disagreeing with them.

    Thrawn Trilogy (3 books): excellent
    Thrawn Duology (2 books): very good
    Jedi Academy Trilogy (3 books): very good
    Legacy of the Force (9 books): not good
    New Jedi Order (19! books): bad
    Darth Bane Trilogy (3 books): very good
    Last of the Jedi (10 books): very good
    Jedi Apprentice (18 [or 20] books): very good/excellent at the start
    Jedi Quest (10 [or 12] books): so-so
    Galaxy of Fear (12 books): okay
    Corellian Trilogy (3 books): pretty good
    Han Solo Trilogy (3 books): excellent
    Han Solo Adventures (3 books): excellent
    Lando Calrissian Adventures (3 books): excellent
    Boba Fett (6 books): okay
    Bounty Hunter Wars (3 books): so-so
    X-Wing (9 [or more?] books): very good
    The Force Unleashed (2 books): bad
    Clone Wars Gambit (2 books): pretty good
    Fate of the Jedi (9 books): so-so
    Junior Jedi Knights (6 books): okay
    Young Jedi Knights (14 books): very good/excellent at the start
    Dark Forces (3 books): okay
    Rebel Force (6 books): so-so
    Coruscant Nights (3 books): pretty good
    Secret Missions (4 books): okay

    You're being too generous with the "Prophets of the Dark Side" series, BCJ.

    I don't know I'd say the whole NJO was bad. It was inconsistent, with some really high points and some really low ones. I think it averages out better than "bad."
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I read Shadows of the Empire back in 1996, when it first came out, and I didn't hate it. So I guess I would choose the period between ESB and ROTJ as my favorite.
    "To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence… When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - C.S. Lewis

    Hey, how else would we have learned about Hologram Fun World? And the b****** child Trioculus?

    Nineteen books to end the way it did? Too long, far too long. Yeah, there were some decent parts, but some were a waste of dead trees (or e-book Cloud space). And there were some direct connections to the LOTF series, which wasn't much better.

    If you need a "quick" reference to all the EU eras, you just GOTS to read Pablo Hidalgo's brilliant compilation, SW:The Essential Reader's Companion; all 470+ pgs of it. There's a short, but very complete, summary of each story, with the main characters and planets featured, all divided by with chronologically presented (and current up to books written by 2012). A great resource, better than the SW Encyclopedia.
