Thrawn in the New Canon- The Expansionist Viewpoint

Thrawn. In the New Canon. Here’s what I think about it. Now, having seen several opinions in the thread that produced from my post in The Expansion group on Facebook, as well as in other conversations elsewhere, I am posting what I had to write down for myself at first before I was deluged by these […]

Star Wars The Force Unleashed III

Here I jot down some notes and brainstorm some ideas for Star Wars The Force Unleashed III novel towards Alliance to Preserve the Expanded Universe group in regards of this issue:

Starkiller must die, because he’s being over-powered.
If Starkiller wanted Commander Juno Eclipse to go away to die!
Plans for Rebel Alliance to bring destruction of the first Death Star.

“As long as she lives, I will always control you!” – Darth Vader to Galen Marek

The Force Unleashed II novel adds extra content that you would not see the game. You get to see how Mon Calamari joins the Rebel Alliance. You also get to see characters you did not see in the game like Tarkin, Bail Organa, Mon Mothma, Garm Bel Iblis, Ackbar, and Wedge Antilles. The set up to the story with Cato Neimoidia was explain more. Characters from the game got more development as Juno Eclipse also goes into more about position in the Alliance. Darth Vader plan makes more sense than what it was in the game and best of all was Starkiller development. Starkiller is not the same dude like from the video game; he finally throw aside his angry of the former dark apprentice at Vader, even after thinking Juno had died. Amazing resolution to him. The love relationship with Starkiller and Juno was an decent job. Also if you did not blink, you will notice a reference from a battle that happened in The Han Solo Trilogy. While The Force Unleashed first novel tells why Darth Vader wanted to train his young secret apprentice and how Galen Marek became powerful well training in the ways of the dark side of the force and lightsaber combat with the help of PROXY.

For Star Wars The Force Unleashed III to become better is to preserve the expanded universe franchise under the legend universe banner, because most of The Force Unleashed novels written by Sean Williams don’t have very many Legends banner on the front cover. Some characters such as Tarkin, Admiral Pellaeon, Mara Jade Skywalker and Thrawn stories also needed to be told for those who helped brought The Force Unleashed project together.

Character personae:
Galen Marek aka Starkiller (Human Male Sith)
Imperial Officer Juno Eclipse  (Human Female)
Rahm Kota (Human Male)
Darth Vader (Human Sith)
Emperor Palpatine (Dark Lord of the Sith)
Boba Fett (Human Male Mandalorian)
Leia Organa (Human Female)
Bail Organa (Human Male)
Luke Skywalker (Human Jedi Male)
Han Solo (Human Male Smuggler)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Human Jedi Male)
Mara Jade Skywalker (Human Female)
Maris Brood (Female Zabrak)
Admiral Gilad Pellaeon (Human Male)
Grand Moff Tarkin (Human Male)
Mon Mothma (Human Female)
Other: PROXY, R2-D2, C-3PO, Admiral Piett and Ozzel


Any ideas for The Force Unleashed III novels will have to overlap some stories told from The Force Unleashed II and the film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope according to Star Wars timeline chronological order.

For The Force Unleashed III novel, Starkiller will meet Maris Brood once again and defeated her during the lightsaber battle, while Juno Eclipse imprisoned Ackbar and send out the plans for Rebel’s Alliance to destruct on the first Death Star. The ending story from Force Unleashed II Rogue Shadow fled out of Kamino and was spied by Boba Fett Slave 1 with Lord Xizor and IG-88 inside, then it was brought back to Imperial fleetship. Holding both Starkiller and Juno Eclipse in hostage with Admiral Piett and Ozzel. Meanwhile Grand Moff Tarkin as well as Darth Vader went to search for the rest of Rebel’s fleetship searching for Princess Leia Organa and captured the rest of her ship. Princess Leia Organa was then also hold in hostage, while Ackbar sending the hologram to destroy the Death Star for the Rebel Alliance to Luke Skywalker, Mon Mothma and Obi-Wan Kenobi to notified Leia Organa was captured by the Empire. Then Starkiller and Juno Eclipse both hopes that they can escape the Empire Starfleet, while Tarkin decides to destruct the planet Alderaan. One of the Imperial admiral officer send the emergency that both Starkiller and Juno Eclipse are trying to escape on one of the TIE Fighters, leaving Starkiller (clone version) behind to fight Darth Vader. Both of Starkiller body (Galen Marek aka Starkiller clone version) are defeated by Vader in his avatar. Darth Vader comes back when Princess Leia Organa are being rescued by Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan and Han Solo on the Death Star. Darth Vader meet Obi-Wan Kenobi once again and they fight each other in lightsaber combat with Obi-Wan defeated. Rahm Kota and Commander Eclipse helped hold the funeral in memory for Galen Marek in spirit.
