There is lore out there but it exists in things like games. I did play Star Wars The Old Republic and that happens 3600 years before the events in the movies.
It's much the same as what's been before and Satele Shan is main player in that period so they could pursue another major female roll. I have to say as a Sith in this game, I was a complete fucking arsehole as Darth Faark. Force lighning is an awesome tool to get what you want
