Here's Grand Moff Tarkin from the original Star Wars. So evil. So severe. So British.

    Without doubt, one of mt absolute favorite villains in Star Wars. His backstory, provided by James Luceno in the book named after him, is fascinating. He justifies his actions thusly: "Then evil will have to do." To him, the ends always justify the means, and if evil and cruelty bring stability to a galaxy still reeling from the Clone Wars, so be it. He and Krennic think a lot alike in that regard ("You have to start somewhere") so it's amusing they were rivals, rather than cooperating.

      So, is that book okay? My friend described it as " god awful " but I'm thinking I'm gonna hafta judge it for myself.

        I'm not sure why they'd call it godawful, unless they're disappointed that it focuses on a character who isn't a Jedi or a Sith. All I can say is I, personally, loved it.

          That's cool. Now I wanna have a look at it. I'm reading " A New Dawn " right now. The I wanna get the prequel to Rogue One and then the novelization of Rogue One. :-)

            Catalyst is a kickass novel, too! I liked it as much as Tarkin. :)
