If there is one thing that has been made clear in the Star Wars Universe it is this; if you are an over thinker, you will become the epitome of evil. If you like to think four and five moves ahead, you need to stop right now, or you will end up on the wrong end of a light saber or a blaster. Just look at the evidence.
Case One – Grand Admiral Thrawn – This man looked at the art of a culture…the art…we are talking paintings and statues and stuff, and by examining the art, he knew how that cultures generals were going act in battle. If that is not over thinking I don’t know what is. Thrawn is the classic chess master villain who over thinks every situation and how did Thrawn end up? He threw invisible asteroids at Coruscant which hurt civilians as much as it did the military and by over analyzing threats that were ten steps down the road that he totally missed the Nohgri right in front of him as a threat. Over thinking was Thrawn’s downfall.

If we learned anything from the Princess Bride, it is that man or woman, boy or girl, we are all looking for true love, or should I more appropriately say…twuuee wwove. Well, thankfully we have some great advice to find our soul mate found in the pages of some good old Star Wars novels. Today, we are going to examine four couples who found true love to help us find the secret of catching that perfect guy or girl of our dreams.
The four couples we are going to look at are as followed: Han and Leah, Luke and Mara Jade, Corran and Mirax, and Jagged Fel and Jaina. Han and Leah have been successfully married for decades, and their marriage has weathered and been strengthened through storms that I cannot fathom going through from carbonite freezing to the death of children. Luke and Mara Jade do not even have to talk to each other to share their feelings or love. They have a deep connection that most couples dream about. Who enjoys each other company more than Corran and Mirax? From the first time they shared a ryshcate together, you saw magic spark because they truly love each others’ company, and with Jagged Fel and Jaina, we see teenage puppy love mature into a deep commitment for one another than easily spans the vast gulf between the Imperial Remnant and the Galactic Alliance. We are going to examine these loves to help us all out in our own quest for true love.
