----
* AlasPoorScrappy: Jacen.
* BrokenBase: Less so than ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' as far as reception goes - the majority of ''Star Wars'' fans have expressed distaste with the series, while a minority enjoy it.
* EndingFatigue: The last few chapters involving Mandalore in ''Revelation''.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Especially among fanfic writers.
* FoeYay: Ben and Tahiri.
* FridgeBrilliance: After Jacen kills Ailyn Vel, no one in the cast -- even Jacen -- remembers that she tried to kill him twice in ''Shards of Alderaan''.
* HarsherInHindsight: Back in the ''New Jedi Order'' series, Leia had a depressing vision of Jaina and herself telling Jaina’s kids about their heroic late aunt Mara. The vision seemed to have become irrelevant when Mara recovered from her illness, then 16 years later, Jacen became Darth Caedus.
* 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.
* MagnificentBastard: Lumiya.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Jacen killing Mara.]]
* {{Narm}}: "My parents are terrorist scum, and ''that'' is why I have turned my back on them."
* {{Squick}}: [[http://gabri-jade.livejournal.com/167587.html#cutid1 Here]].
* TrappedByMountainLions: The Boba Fett/Mandalorian subplots in ''Bloodlines'', ''Sacrifice'' and ''Revelation''.
* UnfortunateImplications: In the first four books, Leia supports Thrackan Sal-Solo's fascist regime on Corellia almost entirely because Han does, despite knowing exactly what kind of monster he is, and despite his policies conflicting with everything she spent her life fighting for.
