    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 :)
