the first foray into the Star Wars universe that is outside the typical fantasy/action genre.

A prison ship goes derelict next to a dead star destroyer. Turns out there is some sort of plague, genetically engineered zombie ceator thingy and just about everyone buys the farm. Han Solo and Chewbacca are in the prison ship and they and 2 others escape.

I guess this was supposed to be creepy and scary, but it came across as hack to me. Telling me that a corridor seems to go on forever, instead of making me feel the character’s terror, makes me feel like they are a complete idiot.

Nothing in the story interested me, and having Han and Chewie thrown in for a connection came across as very weak and lame.
