* DesignatedHero and DesignatedVillain: The first five books, in their Alliance vs. Corellia plotline, abandon decades of previous characterization to make previously tight-knit heroes fight each other in a stupid war. Highlights include Wedge, Han, and Leia becoming standard-bearers for the totalitarian Corellian government and Luke and Mara being 100% okay with their son joining the Alliance equivalent of the SS. It's only after they start suffering personal tragedy that they rethink their allegiances.

* TheScrappy: Mandalorians were shoe-horned into the story with tons of CharacterShilling. Naturally, fans hated them because they felt their role was pointless.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Padding}}: The Mandalorian subplot is widely considered this, primarily because it is considered the least important aspect of the series. This is the case even more so in ''Sacrifice'', where the Boba Fett and Mandalorian subplot literally doesn't tie in at all to the ongoing story of the book, let alone that of the series.

* HilariousInHindsight: When she "left" Del Rey (rumors are that she was actually let go because of her being difficult to work with, as Troy Denning and Aaron Allston have mentioned), Karen Traviss claimed that if she came back, she'd reboot the universe in order to undo TheCloneWars interpretation of the Mandalorians, as if she actually would have had the authority to do so. Several years later, Disney officially rebooted the EU, and The Clone Wars along with its interpretation of the Mandalorians was one of the ''only'' things that stayed canon.

Added DiffLines:

* FranchiseOriginalSin: Probably the first time fans started to complain about traits from both some of the authors and Del Rey's handling of the Star Wars license: Denning's DarkerAndEdgier style, Traviss's focus on Mandalorians, and the continued focus on DemocracyIsFlawed and shock deaths all became criticisms.

Several years later, Disney officially rebooted the EU, with quite a few believing it was due to this series and its sequel poisoning the EU to almost incontinuable levels.

* IdiotPlot: The heroes should have been able to catch on to and short circuit the villain's plot relatively quickly. It can also apply to Jacen himself, for thinking that listening to Lumiya in the first place was a good idea.
