* AwesomeByAnalysis: This is actually a specialty of fully-trained Jedi; using the insight of the Force allows them to navigate any situation and achieve an optimal outcome (be in within combat or otherwise). Mace Windu's unique gift is that he can sense what action in any given moment will achieve the optimum outcome with minimal exertion and always could. Effectively, he gets the ''results'' of AwesomenessByAnalysis without having to run the numbers. Looking at a crystal that would dent a sledgehammer, for instance, he can instantly spot where a light tap would shatter it (i.e. the [[TitleDrop shatterpoint]]). Looking at a person, he can see weaknesses in armor or physiology or strategy, and disable or kill them. This doesn't mean a shatterpoint always exists or that tapping it will be easy, however.

* ShatterpointTap: Physically shattering objects is the ''least'' that Mace can do with his unique Force talent.

* ShatterpointTap: Physically shattering objects is the ''least'' that Mace can do with his unique Force talent. He can see the weak points of people's minds, the wills of armies, even ''entire interstellar nations''. It's just that Jedi aren't supposed to mow down worlds like fields of wheat - and just because he can see those points doesn't mean that tapping them is easy.

* TheNondescript: The guy who brings the recording from Haruun Kal is so ordinary-looking that Mace immediately pegs him for a spy.

* KneelBeforeFrodo: When Mace rescues several prisoners, one of them kowtows to him, calling him "Your Highness" and begging for the lives of his children. Mace tells him to knock it off.

* DramaticIrony: When talking about Palpatine, Mace says, "A shame he can't touch the Force. He might have made a fine Jedi." If only you knew, Mace. If only you knew...

Added DiffLines:

* BondCreatures: Some Korunnai form Force bonds with their akk dogs--large, armored, reptilian wolf-bear-''things''. The bond means the akk trusts its rider completely, is instantly obedient, and they can share senses and orders at the speed of thought, which lends the pair unmatched agility and reaction times. If the human partner dies, though, the akks generally become despondent and/or given to rages, and are usually put down.

Added DiffLines:

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Actually, Stover ''does'' have one. The book includes commentary on the much-maligned 1.2 million clones number (a result of the ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' novelization), with the explanation that, yes, that's roughly one clone for every planet in the Republic, and that most of the fighting is actually being done by member militaries with the clones reserved as an EliteArmy for critical battles.

Added DiffLines:

* NemesisWeapon: Mace Windu notes that the [[{{Vibroweapon}} razor-edged vibroshields]] used by Kar Vastor and his acolytes are a twisted mirror of the Jedi lightsaber; he uses his sword as a shield, while they use their shields as swords.
