What philosophers ideals could relate to the battle between good and evil in Star Wars? ~~~ The notion of battles between the concept of good versus the concept/judgment of 'evil' is the stuff of the tales and stories and the 'beliefs' on the religion site! There is no philosophy that pays any attention to such philosophical/scientific nonsense! To imagine a 'battle' between judgmental vain beliefs is an absurdity, juvenile and unsupportable! That is the stuff of religion metaphors, and the... 'intellectually challenged' who do not understand the meaning of 'metaphor'. You want 'believers', not 'thinkers'!

There are well over 200 SW books in print at the current moment and for the most part they are all good to great reads. There are a couple of them that are absolutely horrid and not worth the time to read ... the best example of that is the book titled "The Crystal Star" ... absolutely horrid book and the worst 30 dollars I ever spent. If you've read the novel versions of the OT, episodes 4 - 6 then I feel sorry for you as they were absolutely horrid representations of the movies back in the day and even more so now with the new info from the prequel movies. The novel versions of the prequel movies are actually pretty good reads with the novel version of ep III almost being required reading if you want to know all the different stories within stories within stories within stories ... you get the picture ... that are going on that couldn't be shown in the movie itself. Here's a link to the SW time line at Del Rey books: http://suvudu.com/files/2010/07/starwars... Depending on which SW "era" you like more my suggestions would be different for each different era. If you want to read the books that tell the story AFTER the events of the movies then the absolute best place to start is The Thrawn Trilogy. The titles of the books are "Heir To The Empire", "Dark Force Rising", & "The Last Command". They were masterfully written by Hugo Award winning author Timothy Zahn and are what most fans, to the outrage of Lucas, credit the revival of the story of Star Wars. Without these 3 books there would be no SE versions of the OT, no DVD versions of the OT (although I'm sure Lucas would have put them out on DVD sometime) and no prequel movies. These books were so good and so loved by fans that in 1995 Lucas was giving very serious thought to making them in to the fabled episodes 7 - 9. One call to Harrison Ford killed that idea because Ford said that he wouldn't be able to reprise his role as Han Solo because he was too busy with other projects at the time. That was when Lucas set his sights on the SE versions of the OT and eventually the prequel movies. The Thrawn Trilogy is set 5 years after the events of the ep VI. The Rebellion has driven the Empire from the capital planet of Coruscant and declared a New Republic as the "ruling body" over 2/3s of the galaxy and have been kicking the Empires butt in every battle they engage in. Han & Leia are married and Leia is pregnant with twins. Luke is continuing his search for records of the old Jedi Order so that he might be able to build a new Jedi Order. These books also introduce us to many of the "new" characters that will carry the story forward in the time line. A new villain, Grand Admiral Thrawn, is introduced to us and we even get to meet the woman that will one day become Luke's wife and a Jedi Master in her own right. There is no "new Sith Lord" in the books but there is a "dark Jedi" in the book ... no, a Sith Lord and a Dark Jedi are NOT the same thing ... who is a clone of an Old Republic era Jedi Master named Joruus C'boath who is pretty much completely insane. All in all it is a story that is VERY worthy of the Star Wars name ... one review of the books said that Zahn captures the feel of the SW movies so well that you can almost hear the soundtrack of John Williams playing in the back of your mind as you read the books. After that I would recommend the X-Wing series. These books are also great reads and introduce us to most of the other "new characters" in the story and expound on some of the lessor characters of the movies such as Wedge Antillies. If you want to read the books before and during the prequel era some suggestions would be: The Darth Bane Trilogy ... set 1020 years before the events of the movies it tells the story of how the "Rule of Two" became the set way for the Sith Order to operate. Some good ones set during the prequel movies ... "Shatterpoint" - a book "starring" Mace Windu, "Yoda: Dark Rendezvous" - a book of course "starring" Yoda. "Labyrinth of Evil" is a great one also. The Republic Commando books are pretty good as are the Medstar books. Feel free to message me if you have other questions and as always ... May The Force Be With You ... .

I consider there is a novelisation of all 6 movies. Then there is a trilogy authorized via George Lucas that tells the plot of one other three movies he is written however does no longer desire to provide. These books take the tale Lucas creatde to the top. The novels are all via Timothy Zahn: 'Heir to the Empire' 'Dark Force Rising' 'Last Command' I revel in fanfic and the entire spin-off novels, however the ones three are definately a well begin.

There is one fundamental thing you have to remember about Lucas ... he changes his mind seemingly with the direction of the wind. I've seen him give two different answers to the same question in the SAME interview. His favorite words, other than faster more intense, are "My words were taken out of context". Anyways ... As "ggtk7" says this little "opps" in the storyline has been the source of much very heated debate among fans but Lucas has actually answered this question ... he says that Leias "memories" of her mother were Force generated because of her traumatic birth. When asked why Luke, who was born first, doesn't have any such memories he says that it's because he is the "sword" of the twins and that Leia is "emotional" one. Now this does kind of fit in the story but it is a pretty thin kind of reasoning ... at least it can be somewhat reasoned out unlike the "Ghost Switch" at the end of Return Of The Jedi where he switched the Force Ghost of Anakin with Hayden instead of the guy who was originally there. His reason is that Anakin died when he became Darth Vader. Even the data banks at starwars.com don't match with what he says because there it says that Anakin died in the arms of his son on Death Star II. Welcome to the world of George Lucas. "ggtk7" also quotes Lucas from a recent interview ... I remember seeing it and having smoke pour out of my ears because this is another direct contradiction of what he has said and done in regards to the Star Wars EU (Expanded Universe of books and comics) and he knows it. That being said this IS his story and what he says is what it is but the only thing in that statement that is really true is that Star Wars has become to big for one person to keep track ... that's why he has delegated the content of the books and comics to a couple of his most trusted "people" ... Sue Rostoni & Lucy Autrey. Those two are the ones who keep the books and comics from "clashing" with what has already been written and even then major story lines MUST be approved by Lucas. I must say I'm sorry to anybody who hasn't read the New Jedi Order story line yet but there is one thing in the first book of the series that prove Lucas does have a hand in the EU. The first book of that series is called "Vector Prime" and in the original drafts of the book Luke Skywalker dies in it ... Lucas gave that a big NO WAY so instead of Luke dying in that book Chewie does. I really don't think that Lucas could give specific answers to any of the goings on in the books but Lucy and Sue keep him up to date with what is going on in the books. In the end it all comes down to being one of the many "Only George knows" kind of things and sometimes he doesn't. May The Force Be With You ... PS: Just a small comment about one of the other answers given by "RiKoLoVern_JOEJONAS_LoVeR: Every hear the old saying "calling the kettle black" ... you call us "nerds" and obesess about Star Wars ... doesn't your nickname here show massive obession with the Jonas brothers ... just a thought.

This has been an ongoing discussion and the only answers that can be found are fan speculation. I think maybe Leia is actually recalling her own adoptive mother on Alderaan. That is the best answer that I can give myself. There are a lot of convoluted "connections" between the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy. Unfortunately we have to take the movies' cannon with a grain of salt because Lucas was not able to tie the loose ends together as solid as hoped. Lucas has a broad outline on how the story arch should go, but had not really written the scripts in their entirety until pre production time came around. So the short of it, we got to live with it, or read some of the novels out there to fill in the gaps of the befores, the durings, and afters, of the SW universe until we decide as fans what satisfies us as an answer. To George Lucas, for his responsibility to the cinematic storyline, his word is canon. George Lucas wrote: But there's no story past Episode VI, there's just no story. It's a certain story about Anakin Skywalker and once Anakin Skywalker dies, that's kind of the end of the story. There is no story about Luke Skywalker, I mean apart from the books. But there's three worlds: There's my world that I made up, there's the licensing world that's the books, the comics, all that kind of stuff, the games, which is their world, and then there's the fans' world, which is also very rich in imagination, but they don't always mesh. All I'm in charge of is my world. I can't be in charge of those other people's world, because I can't keep up with it.
