In the books, at one point Marek Force Pushes hundreds, possibly THOUSANDS of droids so hard that it creates an 'artificial hurricane' that leaves shadows over the landscape of Raxus Prime.

In the books he casually thinks about destroying a replica of the Jedi Temple with a single Force Push. Fully to scale.

In the books he takes out an AT-AT with a blast of lightning, killing its crew in the process, and then shoves it over with the Force.

In the books he destroys the Sky Hook on Kashyyyk with the Force, quaking apart a structure that reaches into orbit.

In the books he telekinetically manipulates a frigate in freefall from orbit with the force while maintaining a force shield "against the sort of heat he might find in the outer layers of a star" while moving so fast that 'individual droplets of water hit like thermal detonators' against his shield WHILE holding the ship together again with telekinesis, until at the end he DISINTEGRATES THE ENTIRE FRIGATE into a billion pieces.

Galen Marek in the books is just about the most powerful Force user in Star Wars./B]

Otherwise, agree to disagree.


Jedi/Light Side spirits aren't agents of chaos and exist within the Force in a unified kind of way, only manifesting for benevolent purposes, IIRC. Sith, meanwhile, struggle to maintain their identity and use the Force for the opposite reason. I seem to recall that they go to some chaotic void when they perish, or they come and go from it as spirits. Only Nadd has "died a second death", so it's unclear if he is simply unable to manifest or he is truly gone for good.

I just don't like TFU at all. It's not a bad action game, but the "up to 11" force use and the backhanded saber style is just retarded.

Probably either a nod to Zatoichi or just Rule of Cool.

I'm leaning towards Rule of Cool.

I think the entire game was meant to be Rule of Cool. Which is okay, because it sells. I just don't care for what it brought to the mythos and it stands out worse than some other black sheep. Like Splinter of the Mind's Eye or the Christmas Special.

Perhaps Neph's greatest oversight. ^
