The New Jedi Order has been one setback after another for the heroes, who are often hampered by the political establishment, because that's just how it goes. With the fall of Coruscant and the rump of the Republic trying to appease the Yuuzhan Vong, an enterprising Wedge Antilles negotiates enough of a veneer of legitimacy to wage the military campaign he wants to wage.

The Enemy Lines duology bring a little fun back into the EU that's sapped by the NJO. No surprise it's at the hands of Aaron Allston, who wrote the funniest X-Wing books. Here, there's essentially no longer a political establishment, so all the old faces can just show up and be awesome. They do this. For the old Rebels, there's nothing like being on the wrong end of a fight to really get the blood pumping and the minds churning. It's been 25 years for them since they fought another rigid, militaristic society bent on oppression and destruction. At long last they can start to do it their way again.

You also get the fun of Jaina Solo with Twin Suns Squadron in her hands.
