Since Revenge of the Sith hit theaters Star Wars ans have wondered how much of Palpatine's tale of his former master was true. Could Plagueis stop people from dying? Did he pass on the knowledge to Palpatine? And, most importantly, did Plagueis cause the creation of Anakin Skywalker? But after appearing on Del Rey's Star Wars book list for release in 2008 the book was pulled by Lucasfilm.
