* VillainHasAPoint: Acknowledged InUniverse. The discussion Luke has with Daala in ''Outcast'' has Luke realize that, while Daala's security measures are rather extreme, she's also doing it so that the galaxy does not need to rely on the Jedi as galactic police, which, given the constant Jedi/Sith duels ([[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce the galaxy is still reeling from the last one]]) is probably not that bad of an idea on its own.

The same idea was earlier explored in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords''.

''Fate of the Jedi'' is a nine-book novel series in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, set about two years after ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce''. Like that series, it was written by three rotating authors: Creator/AaronAllston, Christie Golden (who replaced Karen Traviss after she dropped out), and Creator/TroyDenning.
