Anyone have this reference book? If so what did you think. I received it for Xmas
I read through a pre-release copy months ago (I'm still waiting for my own copy - which better have been ordered this week otherwise :toed:!).
It is a pretty good book with some nice information and pictures, although light on any detail - like all Dorling Kindersley's Ultimate range of books it isn't really the "ultimate" anything. It's really aimed at kids or as a quick overview and can't possibly cover everything in just that amount of pages.
I've got the complete set of Star Wars Fact Files which has a lot more information in it (excluding Episode III and newer information), but then it is seven ring-binders full.
I'm glad some of the EU was covered and I to also have the Star Wars Fact Files, now that's a reference piece to Star Wars if I ever saw it *lol*.
Unfortunately they ended the Fact Files before Episode III and none of the newer EU stuff will be covered. They should have kept them going past Episode III and then continued to make annual issues to cover new books / comics / games / etc.
Yeah, I don't know why they stopped when they knew Episode 3 was coming up and fans would obviously by the issues. That annual issue idea sounds very good
