horrible series with the dumbest jedi ever,
This review is from: Revelation (Star Wars: Legacy of the Force, Book 8) (Mass Market Paperback)Alright I had to say something because this entire series has been one stupid plot twists and blunders after another. The jedi are suppose to be awesome and the bad**ses of the galaxy but yet it takes them six books to finally decide to do something about jacen. What happened to all the smart jedi or at least the righteous ones? The great revelation at the end of this book is laughable not to mention it's idiotic that they never thought of it. During the whole series jedi go from being practically omnipotent to being dumb to the point that a five year old could pull the wool over their eyes. Not to mention that book to book the characters change and don't act how they did in the last one. Also the selfishness of the jedi goes against everything they should stand for. I mean come on luke keeps going on and on about being a jedi and during this series he puts his own selfish desires over the greater good. So what if their kid doesn't use the force I would think they wouldn't care. Not to mention jaina, I though she was 30 year old not a teenager with a lot of angst. Out of all the characters in this series the only characters that stay cool are han and leia they actually stick to their beliefs during the entire thing. Finally the whole tracker business I don't understand why they sacrificed all those jedi just to put a tracker on him instead of capturing him. Okay maybe that team couldn't have done it but something like this they could have sent like 10 masters I'm sure they could get him. This series gets me so mad I'm going to finish it because I already read so much but then I'm done with star wars books the NJO killed it for me.
Edit: Spoiler alert***
I got to say this last thing I disagree with what the dude said at the end. Quoting the friendly neighborhood spiderman "With great power comes great responsibility" to have the ability to change something for the better and not doing it is worse than committing the act. I mean that whole speech the x-jedi gave to jaina sounded like someone justifying their lifestyle. For the last quote "Evil wins when good men do nothing".
