DarkeSword Posted January 23, 2011 Report Share Posted January 23, 2011 Eh, Horn got pretty bad, but at least he's had interesting stories told about him where his (admittedly few) downsides bit him in the ass (i.e. I, Jedi). Starkiller got to be Vader's LEET SEKRIT APPRENTICE who could beat him and Palpatine, and founded the Rebellion, and throw Star Destroyers around with little effort No, my point about Horn is that for a long time he was a Luke Skywalker clone. Rogue Squadron pilot with an R2 unit sidekick, whose father was a Jedi, etc. etc. etc. It felt like one of those Sonic fan-characters; you know, those hedgehogs who ALSO ran at super speed? JUST LIKE SONIC!!!~1` Aside from that, Stackpole's a great author. I've read his non-SW stuff; quite good. And yes I agree with you about Starkiller. A ridiculously stupid character with no redeeming qualities aside from the fact that his name is the original hero's name in the earliest drafts of Star Wars.
