* AssPull: While Zonama Sekot had been previously introduced, its explanation of a major plot detail came completely out of nowhere. The series provided several philosophical examinations of the Force and what it meant that the Yuuzhan Vong could not be sensed. The Jedi spent a lot of time agonizing over this and questioning everything they knew, which was perhaps the height of storytelling for the series. At the end, however, we learn that the GeniusLoci of the Vong "Took the Force away" from the entire species, because apparently it can do that. It was a development that not only arose from nowhere, it retroactively turned the Jedi quest for greater understand of the Force into a ShaggyDogStory

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Onimi]] was once a gifted Shaper whose experiments resulted in him becoming hideous and malformed, branding him as a [[ApparentlyPowerlessPuppetmaster Shamed One]] and outcast in the eyes of the Yuuzhan Vong. However, his experiments also granted him incredible power. Reaching out, he [[TheManBehindTheMan enslaved the mind]] of [[PuppetKing Supreme Overlord Shimrra Jamaane]], ruling the Yuuzhan Vong as [[TheManBehindTheMan the secret master from the shadows]] while being [[TheDogWasTheMastermind publicly presented]] as [[TheJester Shimrra's court jester]], [[NotSoHarmlessVillain hiding his intellect]] behind ObfuscatingStupidity. [[MonsterClown Onimi]] ordered the invasion of the Galaxy, leading to a brutal campaign that saw hundreds of trillions dead and entire species and worlds annihilated by the Yuuzhan Vong. Desperate to contain the supposed "Jeedai" heresy, Onimi initiates violent purges of his own people, slaughtering them en masse while throwing away the lives of loyal Yuuzhan Vong on pointless endeavors throughout the war. When he faces off with the Solo twins, Onimi reveals he has come to see them as avatars of the Yuuzhan Vong gods of trickery and war and reveals his intentions to [[OmnicidalManiac continue the massacre of everything in the galaxy]] to [[AGodAmI elevate himself to godhood]]. [[AxCrazy Twisted, cruel and obsessed with his own glory]], Onimi aimed to destroy all he could for the sole purpose of [[RageAgainstTheHeavens spitting in the faces of the gods]] he abandoned in his own hubris.

* CompleteMonster: [[MonsterClown Onimi]], despite his ObfuscatingStupidity, is the true BigBad and head of the Yuuzhan Vong. Once a gifted Shaper, after losing his sanity to experiments that also allowed him to regain the Force, he became a [[ApparentlyPowerlessPuppetmaster Shamed One]]. He then used his powers to [[TheManBehindTheMan brainwash Shimmra Jamaane]] into launching a coup that resulted in the death of the Supreme Overlord Quoreal and many of his followers. [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Onimi]] than [[TheDogWasTheMastermind manipulated the new Supreme Overlord]], [[PuppetKing Shimmra]], into initiating a massive invasion of the galaxy that resulted in the [[OmnicidalManiac deaths of trillions of innocent beings and the destruction of entire species]], all to [[AGodAmI ascend to godhood]]. Despite his attempts to justify himself, Onimi was one of the [[AxCrazy most depraved beings]] the Jedi have ever faced.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Onimi]] [[TheDogWasTheMastermind masterminded]] the most devastating war in Galactic History, and indirectly caused the deaths of trillions and the extinction of whole species, just so that he could [[AGodAmI become a god]]. He even tells Jaina that he's looking forward to "[[OmnicidalManiac exterminating everyone and everything in this foul galaxy]]." During his MotiveRant to a captive Jaina, he does try to cast himself as a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, but she sees through his facade, realizing he's a [[AxCrazy lunatic]], and she is repulsed.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: A lot of the [[AbortedArc aborted plot threads]] are the result of this. For instance, Anakin Solo was being set up to be the main hero of the series, until George Lucas became concerned [[ViewersAreMorons audiences would confuse Anakin Solo and Anakin Skywalker]], and requested Anakin Solo be killed. This forced a scramble to retool Jacen into the main hero of the series.
