Yeah, i know the new republic era is getting kinda burned ou a little bit. But remember, it's the GA now, under Daala's helm, and were seeing the return of true Sith, like in the games, and the Old Republic time, and i mean OLD old republic, like the Mandalorian wars era old. Which would be a prefect tie in to anything added to that era, which Drew and them are slowly fleshing out.
But on a personal level, i think it's great that Drew is getting to a character and story that really put him on the map.
What i do hate about the whole latest two series of books, is the Mara was killed, not only killed, but by Karen Travis, and NOT her creator, Timothy Zhan, whom IS the benchmark for Star Wars books.

And if you make the Mandalorians not war, glory, or honor obsessed, then you take away whatever it was that was supposed to give them an advantage over Jedi.

Eh, I don't know Traviss well enough to hate her. I don't mean to come on strong, I'm just saying what I've heard speculated, that there was some author tension.
The problem with Mandalorians is their depiction is all over the place. In the Mandalorian wars that the KOTOR games skirt around, the Mandalorians are these badass mofos who live for battle and finding worthy opponents. This is the one I'm most familiar with, and I thought it came from Jango Fett and his clones in the movie. But now I hear in the Clone War cartoons that the Mandalorians have become pacifists (what?), and want to join the Republic (what?) and that it's really only a fraction of them that wants to return to the old military glory, which presumably Jango is part of. The EU needs to make up it's mind.
I'd like to see a fourth faction, of also not entirely evil people, but who also have different ways that can counter the Jedi. Something an average person could become part of if they wanted. Maybe through technology that's been kept hidden or secret in case it needed to be used to dampen Force abilities and temporarily bring Force-Users down to normal.
I recall hearing that some Sith appear to attack the Galactic Empire 100 years later, it'd be interesting if they were a non-evil take on the philosophy. Then you could have Jedi versus Sith vs Mandalorians vs Empire.

KOTOR did it a little, which is why it was so damn interesting (Jolee Bindo, the trope codifier mentioned in the Grey Jedi article was from KOTOR). It's one of the main reasons I find that era a lot more fun than the sequel trilogy interim and the post movie time.
The only downside is the games didn't really have many character options between "hug the puppy!" or "kick the puppy!" But I enjoyed some of the moral dilemmas presented anyway. I learned a lot about myself from playing.
