Finished Crimson Empire today. In a kinda twisted way, he's a really tragic character.

To a degree, though he is also a sociopath and without any empathy or concern for those who serve him whatsoever.

After read about Jax i think he shouldn't had let Byss get destroyed.

He didn't plan on that part, I don't think anyone could have foreseen that sequence of events happening like it did...and also giving R2D2 technically the highest kill count of the heroes.
Jax just planned the Emperor dying while the power structure remained intact with him and the council in control.

Wasn't that how Zahn tried to portray Era 5 Empire, with planets considering re-joining for the centralization and protection?

Yes since for about five years the NR tended to let member worlds handle their own issues without interference. This made the central government look weak and promoted lots of brushfire conflicts. Plus after the Imperial Mutiny and devastation of Shadow Hand much of the galaxy stayed neutral and just longed for a return to stability.

I wish the Empire was more like the Space Marines in 40k where they are Nazis, but are a required evil in a world like the 40k world.

Do you think that's one of the scenarios you'll explore in the submod you're working on?
It could be, only thing is it would have to be different from Shadow Hand in that the Warlords go rogue but Jax has the resources of Byss.

Well the other thing is Thrawn's clone, the vong, or just some random Imperial commanders would take him out.

True, but with Thrawn's clone not due for another 6 years, the Vong not due for another almost 10 that pretty much leaves Black Sun's remnants, the back biting of the Imperial Ruling Council and Nom Anor's manipulations of the Council. I'm not saying he would be utterly triumphant or would have lasted, but he had a shot if they had still kept Byss and it's resources.

Well it's likely though at this point every Dark Jedi of any power or prestige was either supporting Jax, in hiding with no power base or dead.
By this time Jerec had been dead for five years, Sedriss and all the Dark Side Elite were dead save one(that the NR captured) so Dark Side wise that really just leaves Lumiya without her power base..

I think Jax would honestly be assassinated later by someone like Jerec, some random dark jedi, or a group of cunning imperials.

The thing is, if R2D2 and Lando hadn't of hacked the Eclipse II's overly automated navigation systems-sending it on it's fateful collision course with the Galaxy gun destroying both and Byss in the process, it would have probably orbitally bombarded Onderon after the Emperor's final death-likely killing Luke, Han, Leia and the few Jedi in the galaxy as well as the Physician and Royal Guard there.
This would have left Byss, the Eclipse II, the Shadow Hand Fleet and the Galaxy Gun all in the Imperial Ruling Council's hands by default-I.E. Jax's hands. With the power to back up his claim to the Throne the Warlords likely remain at least nominally loyal, the New Republic at this point is on the verge of collapse having lost nearly all it's territory and most of it's military to Thrawn and then palpatine's offensives. In this scenario there is no witness to jax's treachery, so Kanos and the remaining Royal Guard have no reason to declare vendettas against Jax, some might even have SERVED him and with access to Palpatine's Dark Side Compendium Jax could well have become a mini Vader(since he died fairly early in his Force training and Lumiya was not fully trained herself we'll never know just how strong he could have become in the Force.)
In this scenario the Galaxy likely does go back to Imperial Rule under Jax.

The Carnor Jax era was always one that will be known but still the collapse was inevitable.

Also alot of wired choices in the new canon. Like how Star Wars, Star Trek, Lost, Cloverfield, Frigit, and Super 8 are all in the same muilverse reality shit.
