Star Wars: Tarkin - James Luceno

In general, I have great respect for James Luceno as a writer. But then he pops out a phrase like this:

Teller made his eyes bright with mystification.

I mean, I get why some writers avoid the whole "wandering body parts" thing like the plague, but now I'm picturing this guy physically straining to make his eyes shine to convey his mystification.

 

 

Oooh, look! Twilight is super mystified! :o
