From the deep character development with Etain Tur-Muken, to fluid gameplay in Republic Commando, to the awesome fight scenes in the Tartikovsky micro-series, to the Mandalorians (I love Mandos! ), everything about this little era screams coolness to me. And so does the KOTOR era as well, just on a more Jedi-rich scale (This is how the movies should have been made!).
    I've been following the Legacy of the Force series in which Karen Traviss is involved in a three author nine book collaboration which will end with the ninth book coming out at the end of this month. I think you would like this series as well, Cody. It's been a great series. And I can certainly see you being a Mandolorian. You definitely have their mind set, I think.
    Thank you, sir! And I'll try and get to reading that series, but truth be told I'm still have to read Debt of Honor, 1634: The Ram Rebellion, and this Battletech novel which I haven't even started yet, The Last Charge (Which will be my first foray into the Free Worlds League, not sure how that's gonna turn out ). Not to mention True Colors (I want this book!).

    In other Star Wars news: Ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshohmuygoshohmygosh! I saw the preview for Clone Wars, and I am stoked! Set your clocks for August 15 troopers, this is gonna be awesome!

    I was watching bonus material for Episode IV, and I saw a parody of Star Wars - Cops that I thought was extremely funny.

    I found a version on the internet and I thought I'd provide a link for anyone who hasn't seen it.

    Troops.

    Yeah, they'll release the film - I'm assuming it'll be the pilot for the series - in theaters then, with the TV show to follow.
    Also, sometime next year, they're planning on doing a live-action anthology series set in the time of the war against the Empire (i.e. the era of Luke, Leia, and Han). That should be interesting, especially if the writers are as good as the folks currently writing the "Star Wars" novels.

    Now THAT!... ....was absolutely hilarious!

    Darn good production too, I might add. They captured the spirit of the format extremely well.

    Ah, I love TROOPS. It and that one fanfilm where an Ewok starts hunting Stormtroopers (Predator style) are hilarious.

    yeah, I keep hoping the folks that did TROOPS will come up with some more. Liked Chad Vader, Night Manager, too. There was another one where someone had taken the fight sequence from one of the prequels (the red and black dude with the metal bumps all over his head) and rescored it to Yakkity Sax (the Benny Hill theme).

    So... Luke Skywalker or Han Solo?

    Even though the original trilogy was about Luke's story, I never liked Luke very much. I love the lightsaber fight scenes, of course, but I was never fond of Luke per se. I much preferred Solo. Perhaps partly because Solo had humour as part of his character.

    Dark Helemt for me (though the little Alien critter that does the Michigan J. Frog routine in the diner scene is also a favorite).....

    Not a character, but my favourite from that movie is the Winnebago. What I'd pay for one of those....
