First things first: I do not own the Trilogy HC sold here and cannot attest to any bonus content, its presentation, etc. I have, however, read the original stories collected here. The title, "Dark Empire Trilogy," is misleading as "Empire's End" was a two-issue coda to "Dark Empire II." Know that going into this, or you'll likely feel cheated when you realize how brief the supposed third act of this really is.
Readers should also place this in its proper historical context. "Dark Empire" was the first "Star Wars" comic published by Dark Horse; Marvel's last issue had been published years earlier. It came on the heels of Timothy Zahn's "Heir to the Empire" and these two projects completely resurrected the entire franchise. I personally liked Tom Veitch's writing on that first mini-series; I felt he did a great job not just capturing the familiar characters as we knew them, but that he also gave a believable idea of what became of them since last we saw them. My chief complaint was that the return of Palpatine and Boba Fett were both unnecessary and contrived. Still, it seemed like someone was going to have to bring back Boba in the Expanded Universe and at least it was out of the way early.
"Dark Empire II" was, for my money, a complete let-down. I'd hoped to see Veitch take the story in a new direction, and instead it felt like much of that second series was either recycled from other "Star Wars" ideas or just wasn't compelling. I can't say I blame Veitch; by this point there was a marked editorial voice ensuring that all "Star Wars" EU stories spoke with the same voice. Dedicated readers may have felt rewarded when one book name-checked a character or situation from another, but I found it completely stifled any meaningful creativity.
