You can try the SWToR book, "Fatal Alliance". Its ok, and basically goes over just about every playable class. I really liked that part of it. The end was kind of abrupt, but the plot was nice! It really introduces you to planets like Dromund Kaas, Corucsant, etc...

The only star wars lore website I know (and use) is Wookieepedia.

Also there isn't that much information about the game time period, that's why BioWare selected it as when the game happen. You can still find all the lore released by BioWare for the game on Wookieepedia. Also BioWare got an official timeline that explain a few things on the official website.

You can start with this page, 3,681 BBY is the year the Sith Empire came back. 28 years before the Sacking of Coruscant and the Treaty, the game start a few years after the Treaty was signed.

edit: I wasn't fast enough. Crying or Very sad

And if you haven't played KoTOR (1, but also 2) yet that is definitely worth a shot. It won't give you all that much background information but still some, and will get you in the mindset - and most of all you will have fun Smile

They had it at Best Buy in a "Star Wars bundle" deal. I think it was KOTAR 1,2, Republic Commando (aweful), and that strategy SW game...

I'll look for it next time i'm there (i'm there all the time looking for music), and let you know what the name is...

Hope that helps Fett' Smile

Hehe, I need to be careful in that. I own a Dj company, if ASCAP caught me without " purchase proof" I can get in BIG trouble. Sad..Thus, the best buy trips Sad

Okay, probably this isn't the right place to express my frustration, but still. Its boiling in me for decades Smile
In one of the SW episodes (which one it was?) we saw a whole regiment of stormtroopers, the supposed-to-be the most fearsome fighting force in the Galactic, being destroyed by a group of 1 meter high hairy panda-like creatures. Armed with light sticks and stones.
George Lukas, sir, what were you smoking?!

It's okay, I kinda got a bit pissed off by that too at age 12...it was supposed to be on Kashykk and they were supposed to fight Wookies but it changed for whatever reason.

Let's not forget that he also brought us...Jarjar Binks...but were it not for Him there would be none of this. I mean hey, Nature gave us the platypus, Justin Bieber and the designated hitter, so everyone has their faults!

My theory is that RotJ was when Lucas figured out that if you insert things into the movie that are specifically marketable to kids, you sell lots and lots of merchandise. SW always made more money off merchandizing that off the movies themselves, and GL started to plan for it rather than just making the movie and hoping people would want a toy X-Wing. And what's more marketable to little kids than a friggin Star Wars Teddy Bear?

And by the time he got around to making the prequels, this attitude had infested every part of the movie-making process. Children became the target-market rather than just another part of a larger market. The prequels really do have the feel of a non-animated Pixar flick, only without the charm.

it was Return of the Jedi and George Lucas is actually a pretty horrible director, did u know he wanted to make Han Solo an alien like Guido? (Green alien that has a head kind of like an ant eater) but they did have the tech or funding to do it, but could u imagine if Han Solo was an alien? so George Lucas does a good job when he doesn't get exactly what he wants.

and so in return of the Jedi he got what he wanted and it was horrible. Very Happy

EP VI and EP I were one and the same to me. They did exactly what Mannic said. They went for the $$$, vice the story/content. How can you go from the dark masterpiece of "Empire Strikes Back", to little "Fuzzball-Viet Cong" wiping out and entire leeeeegion of the Emperor's own?? Its just puzzling.

My only reason is...Power corrupts....and...Absolute (Unliiiiiimited) Power...corrupts absolutely...

LAWLS!


P.S> Say what you will. I liked the ewoks. They were the comic relief, like R2 and 3PO which has been a constant in the whole Star Wars saga. That is until the inception of jar jar...
