* BaseBreaker: There's a sharp divide amongst fans who think the Jedi Academy Trilogy was absolutely awful, those who find it merely OvershadowedByAwesome with Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy as well as Comic/DarkEmpire, and those who actually like it. It seems to depend on how serious you like your ''Star Wars'' since Kevin J. Anderson took a somewhat over-the-top comical style to the series.

* IdiotPlot: Lampshaded mercilessly (along with everything else) in ''I Jedi''

* TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou: For all its shortcomings, this series is the first time anytime in Franchise/StarWars that a reason for the Light Side being stronger than the Dark Side is given. Jedi are at their most powerful when they at harmony with themselves and the universe; as such Jedi are at harmony with other Jedi, therefore a group of Jedi can work together and become far more powerful than any of them individually. A Sith, who is focused on personal power and achievement, can't do this. Therefore Exar Kun is destroyed for good by Luke's students.
* VillainSue: Some people have accused the Sun Crusher of being this, with how utterly broken it is, despite being the size of a fighter. It's rather derpy design doesn't make it anymore endearing.

Added DiffLines:

** The unreleased until 2015 short story ''Lone Wolf'' by Abel G. Pena confirms it to be Obi-Wan, who was wearing a Tatooine-crafted robe that was a gift from Anakin. As it was originally unreleased, the canonicity in the Legends continuity is a bit suspect.

Added DiffLines:

** Although Episode II was famous for including the first purple lightsaber as a result of Samuel L. Jackson's insistence, Gantoris already uses a violet blade in Dark Apprentice.

** Similarly, ''I, Jedi'' while better received by fans, tends to include a contingent among fans who think it was disrespectful for Michael Stackpole to ''fix'' Kevin J. Anderson's work.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Exar Kun comes off as this. Thoroughly averted, amusingly, in ''I, Jedi'' where Exar Kun is portrayed as a psychotic creep.

* OlderThanYouThink: In "Jedi Search", Lando uses an electronic gadget, previously used by the Empire, to tell if someone is strong in the Force. This indicates that there were measurable physical traits associated with Force sensitivity. And the book came out years before [[Film/ThePhantomMenace the whole flap over midichlorians]].

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: When Kyp destroyed the Carida star system by causing its sun to go nova, he killed 25 million people. Even if Carida was the only inhabited body in the entire system, that's still a very small number for a planetary population above a bronze-age level. For comparison, New York state '''''alone''''' has a population of around 20 million.

** Also, the series reveals that all three of Han & Leia's children were raised in isolation from nearly everyone (including their parents) in order to protect them from Dark Side influences. Again, this was years before [[ThePhantomMenace the whole]] [[AttackOfTheClones "no attachment"]] [[RevengeOfTheSith part of the Jedi Code]] was established.
