I don't know anything about Revan, but I found the Bane series' author's writing style pretty abysmal, right up through the ending of that series.

What is Ming's assistant from Flash Gordon doing in a Star Wars book?

The game was great. The books were terrible.

This is going to be the prequels all over again. It is far, far better to leave this stuff to people's imaginations.

I've always thought so.

Personally, I think Revan has been the best EU character in any medium since Thrawn.

Can't wait to learn where he went to.

Watch out!  We'll all end up off TheBoost's Christmas card list again!

"Yeah, well, George says a lot of things..." a young 1997 xhonzi on RASSM

"They're my movies." -George Lucas. 19 people won oscars for their work on Star Wars (1977) and George Lucas wasn't one of them.

Rewrite the Prequels!

You just like him because he looks like The Rock.

Supposedly this novel is being written as background on the sith empire in the old republic game, Revan goes to the unknown regions etc.

It is believed this is going to fill in the missing chapter that was KOTOR III.

Wish it was a game.

 

I wish bioware would just redo the trilogy after finishing mass effect 3 of course.  Then we could have Kotor 1-3 and a single player experience with graphics similar to the mass effect games.

The Old Republic while an interesting idea is not really my style of game.

Mark my words: ruined forever.

SLIGHT SPOILERS AHEAD

Isn't the whole point of Revan that his/her personality was based around how you played the game? How can you do a book about a character that is purposefully ambiguous.

This reeks of ruining future KOTOR playthroughs.

To me it's like doing a Mass Effect book that assumes all of the choices you could've made in the games. Kind of ruins the whole point.

Again, only if you want to. It's not like they oblige you to accept what they say/do.

Well, in Star Wars' case they do. This book will now become canon. So the events they say happened in KOTOR will also be canon. I mean, I guess you can ignore canon, but that's like saying "I don't like that Vader is Luke's father I'll pretend that didn't happen."

I personally ignore the idea that the books are canon. When the Thrawn trilogy first came out I read them and remember being impressed but didn't put them on the same level as movies. I enjoyed Tales from the Mos Eisely Cantina, but never took it as gospel. I've never thought it difficult to take the books with a grain of Tatooinian sand even if I enjoyed them. I mean, I don't take 3 "Star Wars" movies as canon! I suspect that if anyone has the ability to ruin a depiction of Star Wars it is Karpyshyn. And again, I know nothing about this Revan guy but it sounds as if his story might be well-suited for the "choose your own adventure" format. I loved those books.

They've decided that Revan was male, but you still have the option to choose the gender of Revan when playing the game. And I bet that if they made KotOR III, you would still have that option.

Same thing for light/dark endings.

I smell what you're cookin, but on the otherhand I alreayd played KOTOR 1 and 2 through multiple times years ago, so I can let that go.
