The mods may close this, as there's a Star Wars thread already. But if it's something different it may stay open.
You need to be a little bit more informative on that question, anyway. Anakin didn't look anything like Darth Vader in Episode II, not having the helmet or armour or anything. Do you mean how he acted?

I have a better question. What is Boba Fett's real name?

Boba Fett called himself Jaster Mereel for a period of time when he was a Journeyman Protector, if that's what you mean. But Episode II cancelled this out, and Jaster Mereel is now just an alias he used.

Boba Fett's real is, funnily enough, Boba Fett. Though, as M0le said, it used to be Jaster Mereel before Lucas messed around with his history.

And the answer to the first quesion is: Q) Zero.

Pff, I don't even have one Star Wars book. Luckily, though, I just read borrowed 'Tales of the Bounty Hunters' about two months ago from the library after a year of searching.
Well, in this case, how about a tricky one:
What do Crix Madine, Admiral Ackbar, Mon Mothma, and Chewbacca have in common? Aside from the obvious connection.

Crix Madine was a Slave? I thought he was an  Colonel who defected. And took his hairpiece with him.

Anywho, they were all involved with the Empire.

Mon Mothma was part of the Imperial Senate.
Chewbacca had a short career as an Imperial Slave, freed by our favourite Corellian.
Admiral Ackbar was Grand Moff's Servant, who was sprung free in one of the first sucessful Rebel Battles.

evan's the closest. I was going to say that they were all high-profile Rebels from the original trilogy who got killed off in the books. Step up evan!

How did Ackbar die? I know Crix got a blaster bolt through the heart, Chewie was crushed by a Moon along with billions of others and Mothma was splashed by some sort aging poison by that dick head Bothan Senitor. But how did our favourite Mon Calamari kick it?

Ackbar died of old age in the New Jedi Order series, and Mon Mothma also died naturally, I believe, but due in part to the poison. I don't think it was Borsk Fey'la who splashed her, wasn't it Ambassador Furgan from Carida?

Yep. Nurdy has his wires crossed.

Mon Mothma didn't die in any particular story, she just kicked the bucket naturally in between the Hand  of Thrawn duology and the start of the New Jedi Order.

Endor is a gas Giant, like Yavin. People seem to think there solid planets.

What planet was Endor in orbit of then?

That one always puzzled me.

Endor is the name of the Gas Giant, it has 18 moons orbiting I think. One of the moons is the Forrest Moon, where ROTJ took place.

As Nurdy pointed out, the Forest Moon of Endor orbited the gas giant planet called Endor. Endor itself had 9 moons, and the Forest Moon was the second.

There were four IG-88s, designated A, B, C and D.
IG-88A - Mind was destroyed along with the second Death Star, having uploaded himself into the Death Star's main computer. His body was left blank and it's unknown what happened to it.
IG-88B - Stunned by Boba Fett on Bespin using ion cannons, then blown up with his own concussion grenades.
IG-88C - Attempted to attack and kill Boba Fett on Tatooine in his ship, was beaten in flying skills and destroyed.
IG-88D - Seconds after IG-88C was destroyed, IG-88D attempted to catch Fett by surprise and attack him. Boba Fett wasn't surprised, and destroyed him again.
There was also IG-72, who wasn't destroyed.
EDIT: Funnily enough, Speli interrogated me with this same question in #fc yesterday.  :p

I'm pretty sure one of the IG's were taken out on Ord Mantel by Dash Rendar. But you got the question right. Incidently, if you haven't notice you can see B's wreckage in Cloud City just before Chewie snatches Threepeo's parts up.

Really? I've never noticed it. Once I tried looking for any remainder of him, but I couldn't see anything. Oddly enough, IG-88's head had a cameo in ANH as a drinks dispenser-looking thing in the cantina.
Okey Dokey, my question:
Name the four Star Destroyers Admiral Daala had under her command at the Maw Installation and what happened to each of them.

Okay...

There was the Hydra, which was destroyed when Han Solo flew the Sun Crusher through it's bridge, causeing it to go ballistic, straight into the Maw Cluster of black holes.

The Manticore was destroyed when Admiral Daala attackeed Mon Calimari. She used her other two Star Destroyers to attack the cities, drawing the Rebel fighters away from the shipyards, so that the Manticore, could come out from behind the moon and destroy the shipyards unexpected and unopposed. Unfortunately, Ackbar, who had been a slave under Daala's mentor Tarkin, was wise to the tactic, and sent a half completed Star Cruiser to where he knew the Destroyer would be, ramming it. Ka-blam.

The Basilisk was destoyed when Kyp Durron used the Sun Crusher to destroy the sun of the system it was in. Poor ship couldn't outrun a supernova.

Daala's flagship, the Gorgon limped back to the Imperial-held core systems after a sound beating from the Republic forces, whereupon it was taken away from Daala and scrapped.

It must suck being an Imperial after The Thrawn series.

M0le: Watch that scene in the ESB very carefully, look to the right of the Incinerator.

I forget the name of the guy, but in one of the Young Jedi Knight books it was revealed that the new head of the droid-making planet found the blank IG-88 body and reprogrammed it to be a bodyguard. (Sorry on the lack of specifics, but I haven't read that series in years) I think those books are canon, as several of the characters created in them have been referenced in the adult books.
