In the films, Anakin and Owen are step brothers.
While I did enjoy the Scion of the Force, there are still a few things that jump to my eyes as inconsistent with the OT.
- First, the Skywalker name being bound to a lightsaber. While interesting, it makes the name resonate with history and gives hiding luke as a Skywalker even less sense.
- Having Lars being a captain, instead of Obi-Wan’s brother (Rotj novel) makes it a bit weird
- That it is mention that it takes years to learn to fight with a lightsaber. Luke was given one a whole 32s after being told about the Force. It should have been implied either that only true members (and the Council gives Anakin one on Alderaan) get lightsabers and/or only those strong in the Force could weild one, which also ‘confirms’ a theory that Han is Force-sensitive.
- the power levels of Jedi is all over the place and this is somewhat contrived. At first, obi-wan is described as Demigod walking amongst us, but then Milard and thr other are dispatched easily.
I plan on reading the rest.
