I agree. But that's what happens when your reading a book that's a description of a video game. It was really easy to see yourself in the video game fighting off enemies and then getting to bosses and passing a level when you were reading. So that didn't surprise me.
I'm daring to do the impossible: Not hating Hasbro for everything they do.

Even then, I didn't feel I was in the video game.  A lot of the action would be summarized.  There were only a couple instances of combat that were given great amounts of play by play.  I'm thinking of the fight with the Bull Rancor and the fight with the Emperor.  In particular I expected a lot more out of the fights with the various jedi and some of the imperial troops.  Like when the apprentice found the imperial troops on Kashyyyk, he does a mind trick on two Troopers, then suddenly he's fighting the garrison commander.  What happened to all the other troops?

I guess this is what you get from a novelization of a video game.

Didn't read the book but listened to the audiobook. I rather like it all in all. Granted the sound effects and storyteller probably made it worth it.
