Please make her stop!
on 23 May 2013
Thank Palpatine for Order 66. If it wasn't for this trigger we'd have yet another Republic Commando book where they sit around on their arses doing nothing. Of course, they still spend most of the novel doing nothing but they are at least eventually forced to do something (although Karen Travesty holds out as long as she can even with that).
Travesty must have been looking forward to this, where the evil, callous Jedi finally get their just-deserts and the Clones turn on their oppressors. She's always been keen to point out that the Clones are a slave army but she refuses to allow that the Jedi have been forced into this position too. What was the poignant death of goodness in Revenge of the Sith is cause for celebration for Travis.
The series has been like an ugly pimple that you've endured, waiting for it to come to a head if only for the satisfaction of watching it explode, but instead it oozes a bit of filmy pus and peters out. But don't worry if you're a fan of Darman & co, this is one case of acne that's doomed to return in Imperial Commando and- for no apparent reason- in the Legacy of the Force series.
