The Most Bad Ass Star Wars Moments Ever

SHARE:

We're just over a week out from Star Wars: The Last Jedi finally hitting the big screen with the force (heh heh) of a fully functioning space station, and already our tiny little minds are already racing to think of what the long awaited sequel has in store for us and our favorite inhabitants of a galaxy far, far away. While a VERY healthy opening box office is a foregone conclusion, predicting what director Rian Johnson has planned for his first stab at Star Wars is a much harder job. But taking into account over forty years of stories across all types of media, he'll be hard pressed to deliver something crazier than these bad ass moments from Star Wars history.


The Yuuzhan Vong Invasion

Long before JJ Abrams said, 'Let's call it The Force Awakens', the adventures of Luke Skywalker and company continued in the Expanded Universe, an ever growing series of novels that opened up the Star Wars universe in a way George Lucas never dreamed of. While most of the books consisted of our heroes fighting a seemingly never ending parade of former Imperials and the odd galaxy destroying weapon, things were thrown for a loop with the introduction of the Yuuzhan Vong, a race of warrior aliens from a galaxy farther away than we could ever imagine. Religious zealots who viewed anything mechanical as blasphemy, they existed outside of the Force and thus untouched by most Force based attacks, which the New Jedi Order discovered in their disastrous first encounter. With powerful, gentically engineered, purely organic weapons, the Yuuzhan Vong soon made short work of the galaxy, conquering every planet in their path. They also nutured a deep hatred for the Jedi, possessing a power they had been denied, and offered freedom to those they captured in exchange for turning in any Jedi Knight. Their years long invasion had a lasting effect on the Star Wars universe, not least the death of Chewbacca, and the beginnings of Jacen Solo's, son of Han and Leia, descent into the Dark Side.


Anything Involving Grand Admiral Thrawn

Step aside Darth Maul, there's a new ultimate bad ass in the Star Wars Universe, and his name is Grand Admiral Thrawn. First coming to our attention in Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire, the book that kicked off the whole Expanded Universe, Thrawn is one of the Emperor's most ruthless allies, commanding the entire Imperial navy with a mixture of ruthless cunning and tactical brilliance, while lacking the megalomania that proved to be his master's undoing. With deep blue skin and piercing red eyes, he made quite the first impression when he was first introduced, taking the broken Empire we saw at the end of Return of the Jedi and making it once again the most powerful force in the galaxy. Not even his death at the end of what is now lovingly known as the Thrawn trilogy could stop him, with the character being used time and time again, from prequels in the expanded universe to even jumping media to appear in computer games and the third season of the fantastic Star Wars: Rebels cartoon.


That Twist In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Long before Bioware took the gaming world by storm (then ruined all the goodwill they garnered with the ending of the third game) with Mass Effect, they had delivered possibly the best Star Wars game ever with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. A role playing game set almost 4000 years before The Phantom Menace, players found themselves in control of a Jedi tasked with taking down Darth Malak, a Dark Lord of the Sith who is razing the galaxy with The Star Forge, an endless source of military resources that once belonged to Malak's ruthless former master, Darth Revan, who is long since dead. While it's boundless amounts of fun traveling the galaxy with a mismatched group of soldiers, scoundrels, and droids, every choice you make leaving you on the edge of the light or dark side, the true beauty of the game comes about halfway through. Nearing the Star Forge, the player themselves is revealed as Revan, left for dead after being betrayed by Malak and brainwashed by the Jedi council to no longer pose a threat to the galaxy. The reveal is masterfully handled, and gives a new meaning to the moral choices the player is presented with: will you go down the light path as penance for your evil ways, or pick up where you left off down the path of the dark side.
