YMMV: Legacy of the Force

  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Jacen.
  • Broken Base: Less so than New Jedi Order as far as reception goes - the majority of Star Wars fans have expressed distaste with the series, while a minority enjoy it.
  • Ending Fatigue: The last few chapters involving Mandalore in Revelation.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Especially among fanfic writers.
  • Foe Yay: Ben and Tahiri.
  • Fridge Brilliance: After Jacen kills Ailyn Vel, no one in the cast — even Jacen — remembers that she tried to kill him twice in Shards of Alderaan.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: 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.
  • Idiot Plot: 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.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Lumiya.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Jacen killing Mara.
  • Narm: "My parents are terrorist scum, and that is why I have turned my back on them."
  • Squick: Here.
  • Trapped by Mountain Lions: The Boba Fett/Mandalorian subplots in Bloodlines, Sacrifice and Revelation.
  • Unfortunate Implications: 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.
