* HarsherInHindsight: ''Isard's Revenge'' (published 1999) has several rather eerie parallels with the Iraq War: a highly controversial invasion of a neutral power to depose a dictator for political reasons, publicly spurred on by supposed evidence of a bogus superweapon.

* CompleteMonster: Ysanne Isard is Director of Imperial Intelligence and Emperor in all but name. Along with the traditional things that come from being at the head of the Empire, like oppressing nonhumans and ordering strikes against the Rebels, and what she did to the previous people in power (framing her father, the previous Director, as a double agent for the Rebels), she ordered the [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke creation]] of the [[ThePlague Krytos Plague]], which causes infected nonhumans to die horribly, and set it loose on Coruscant before the Rebels captured it. This so that the New Republic would both bankrupt itself trying to treat the infected and tear itself apart along species lines, as resentment towards immune humans rose. It might not have gotten that bad, but that was the intent. And then there's how she left Coruscant. And ''Lusankya''[[note]]''Lusankya'' is a 19-km Super Star Destroyer buried under the Coruscant cityscape, serving as a HellholePrison and ManchurianAgent factory as well as Isard's base. Isard leaves Coruscant by lifting off ''through'' the city above, killing millions upon millions of innocent people.[[/note]]. At one point, Wedge thinks to himself that Isard might not have been evil on the scale of the Emperor or Darth Vader - aside from Luke and sometimes Leia, few people in that 'verse consider Vader anything but evil even after his RedemptionEqualsDeath - but that was small comfort to the millions who died at her hand.

** ''Wraith Squadron'': Seeing the effects of {{Gaslighting}} from the victim's perspective is not pleasant. It's easy to see how [[spoiler:Grinder]] might have ended up passing out from shock over the squadron's counter-prank.
