* 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.

Added DiffLines:

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

* FanonDiscontinuity: Especially among fanfic writers.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterShilling: Karen Traviss's work is accused of this by some any time her Mandalorian subplot comes up.


Added DiffLines:

* TooManyCooksSpoilTheSoup: A possible real world version, as the series grew more chaotic, padded, and just plain weird as time went on. Notably, Karen Traviss had a widely different style of writing and concept of the universe from Aaron Allston and Troy Denning, leading to the TrappedByMountainLions plot below, while each author also had their own subplots and interpretations of characters, each of which would radically change the context of the series.
