The only book I picked up this weekend, and although I haven't read all the way through it, it is neat as always. Some interesting points found inside, whether this is EU or not who knows, but just some food for thought (Spoilers Present):
"Obi-Wan is not without his secrets, including a relationship with Jedi Siri Tachi, who died saving Padme"
"Dooku's turn to the darkside began with the murder of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, his former friend and a confidant in the Order. Assuming control of the plans Sifo-Dyas had set in motion to create a clone army for the Republic, Dooku saw to it that all mention of the planet Kamino was erased from the Jedi Archives."
"R2-D2's talent for never revealing more than he has to may be due to Anakin's modifications"
"With the creation of the Empire, the Red Guard becomes the Imperial Guard. Palpatine picked its members from non-clone military units"
"The General is secretly humiliated at having being resurrected as a cyborg."
"It is thought that Baron Papnoida may be a double agent."
"Restless by nature, he (Chewbacca) has also visited scores of planets, and is a veteran of numerous adventures, including run-ins with Trandoshan slavers."
