Knaak is one of many writers that suffer from what I like to call Advent Children Syndrome. They write their stories and work their plots assuming the reader already knows a vast amount about the setting and backstory. This effectively limits your fiction works solely to fan boys who would already like it no matter what it is (see: Final Fantasy Advent Children) and leads to choppy reading with huge plot holes that confuse the rest of the normal people that try to read it.I'm saying this as a very avid gamer. All you fan boys out there know I'm write when I say this too: even those of us that do know about the setting still recognize the lack of effort that goes into these stunted stories. It does make a difference.
