To really see how their romance developed, you need to read the YJK books.
    Right! And they were decent stories too. I'm curious to see how life treats Jacen and Tenel Ka now that they have a child!

    The only downfal about them YJK, (and it not as bad this time due to the second writer) is that KJA is involved.

    HOWEVER.....It does introduce so many of my favorite Characters.

    Anja Gallandro
    Lowbacca
    Ailyn Vel (kinda)
    Jacen/Jaina (the first to really give them personalities...kinda)
    and one of my altime favs
    TENAL KA!!!!

    It's a shame more people don't like KJA. Afterall he gave us most of the foundation the EU is built on today. I truly believe that without him no KOTOR or TOTJ would exist not to mention most of the heroes and villians of the NJO.

    You would have to read the Dark Nest trilogy and the new Legacy of the Force novels to find out. As it stands, most people donít yet know that Jacen is a father. He and Tenel Ka have kept his being the father of her child secret in order to protect the baby from the Hapan Nobility who would unite to destroy her if they knew he was the father. And, whith what is going on in the Legacy series, It is going to be very interesting indeed.

    Don't get me wrong, I respect the way that he set up the foundation of the EU, but the stories he wrote around his foudnation building kinda sucked.

    I like the JA trillogy because it introduced a bunch of charcters i liked, but the overall story sucked.

    In the JA trillogy he had a big habbit of trying to 1 up George Lucas

    George builds a weapon that can blow up a planet
    KJA build a indestructable ship with a weapon that can destroy stars

    GL creates the chosen one and his son
    KJA creates some random kid who has more power then luke

    Kyp goes evil, kill thousands, han shows up say Kyp! stop! and he just does and nothing else happens. Kyp doesn't get punished etc etc

    Alot of what KJA anderson wrote just seemed......lack luster.

    But i have to agree with him, the ToTJ and KOTOR wouldn't exist, and neither would alot of stuff like Tenel Ka, lowbacca, etc

    So when it comes right down to it....he's alot like george lucas

    I hate his writting, but I love some of his ideas.
