* ImmortalRuler: Turns out that the reason the Empire fell to squabbling petty warlords is that Palpatine intended to rule forever using his clones and never made plans for a peaceful transfer of power.

** Debatable. Even at his worst, he's no more obviously crazy than [[LargeHam his portrayal]] in RevengeOfTheSith.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Empire's MO in this series, where they launch wave after wave of ludicrously powerful yet easily-destroyed superweapons such as the World Devastators.

* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: One of the biggest points of notoriety to the series; after the first and second Death Star were massive undertakings that took years for the Galactic Empire at its height to get together, a faction of the severely weakened Imperial Remnant managed to put together at least four weapons of the Death Star's calibre in what couldn't be more than a year.

Star Wars' EU canon is more internally consistent than most, but this series tends to be [[CanonDiscontinuity ignored fairly often]], mostly due to all the [[ResetButton retrogressive]] things that happened during it. A few things are acknowledged: Han and Leia had a son that they named [[DeadGuyJunior Anakin]], who went on to be pretty important. The first ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron'' game, mostly set between the movies, had a final level where the player was Wedge Antilles on Mon Calamari, trying to take down the World Devastators. In the HandOfThrawn duology, the subject of the Emperor's return comes up and Mara Jade - who was his Hand and could hear his instructions from across the galaxy - doubts that this Emperor was really Palpatine. Mara, having gone to the Dark Side herself for a while, also suggests that Luke has been slightly tainted by it ever since. ''Literature/LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor'' has a {{Body Surf}}ing villain think about how Palpatine had a similar plan to his, but involving clones, and since the villain in question was never able-bodied, he's going a [[GrandTheftMe different route]]. Additionally, the E-wing starfighter makes its debut, and in later books and comics would become one of the most common go-to machines when a writer wanted to utilize a fighter other than the four Rebel fighters from the films.

* SequelEscalation: Compared to the ending of the original trilogy. The Empire is now fully mobilized for war, and shooing out their humane Army troops in favor of rampaging von Neumann robots. And Palpatine himself is a far greater threat than before, both in terms of raw power and the reach of [[AssimilationPlot his ambitions]].

** And the original series itself included a prose supplement that explained and elaborated on various aspects of the plot and its background, up to and including notional quotes from the Emperor's philosophical tractates and other fluff gold. Regrettably, most of the reprint editions have consistently omitted these.
