    I felt I could practically narrate the prequel trilogy with all the tidbits and literature I read before seeing the movie when it released. Not referenced line for line type stuff but the general story of Anakin and his path to the dark side being defeated by Obi Wan on Mustafar. Though to find a real plot point in the literature is harder to find, most of it is very supportive and gives backstory to what we see. I personally believe we are actually being trolled by the movies at the moment. TLJ is the epitome of this is not going to go the way you think.

    Yeah we can think of Luke having such a depressing life... we might wanna think of other characters in the saga who's life was way more tragic than Luke's. Kanan (oh yeah but he's not a Skywalker) or Cassian (oh yeah but he's not Force-sensitive) and so on. At least Luke achieved his goals at a certain point, saved the galaxy and helped defeat the Empire. The story makes a lot of sense - from a certain point of view, of course - and even if some of us might think what a terrible ending was for Luke to finish his days on that tone, for me it's quite the opposite, he showed the true spirit of a Jedi by sacrificing himself and coming back to face his mistakes, giving the rebels a chance to fight another day.

    I don't agree with you here, but that's maybe only me and my problem. :(

    I hope you are right in some circumstance because I see - and its just a personal feeling that the movie and the extended material don't seem to be running parallel. I mean am not lying with my previous post when I pointed out differences in The Force Awakens novel and film. There are things missing in TLJ movie and book. Am not making up Rax, Zey and Sana Solo. Am only pointing them out, there's nothing wrong with that? They just don't seem to gel and match up.
