The Jedi Path (Book Review)
As with the last book review this is posted in full on http://thefoundingfields.com/ and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.
As many will know from the news surrounding the upcoming Star Wars sequel films, large chunks of the Expanded Universe is to be effectively swept away. Decades of stories, developments, ideas and lore are just going to be retconned into oblivion with directors pretending they never happened. While this has been met with some rejoicing, those celebrating the most only seem to be remembering the worst elements of this universe such as Darksaber or The Jedi Academy trilogy. No mention is given to the great stories which earned so much support from fans or even just how heavily fleshed out many otherwise vague organisations became. This is one of the big examples of just how beneficial that universe was.
