You should start with the Thrawn Trilogy.

Thrawn Trilogy is phenomenal. Having read both the novels and the comics, I actually preferred the comics. Other classics:
Dark Empire
Crimson Empire
Shadows of the Empire
Star Wars: Legacy (takes place after all of the legends, pretty much.)

And let's not forget about the saga of Kyle Katarn, the Jedi Knight Games.

Already Read Thawn. :P Although I was about 12, so Might give the comics a go, what about all this, Leia and Han's Kids stuff?

I get very lost in the legacy era, I love the Fel empire, but I gt utterly confused with what the time-lines are.

Leia and Han have 3 kids: Jaina, Jacen, and Anakin. You'll want to look at stuff around the New Republic Era, centering around the Yuuzhan Vong war and those events.

This has all novels/comics/other in chronological order. The majority of the New Republic focuses on Luke, Leia, Han, and the original crew, whereas the New Jedi Order begins the next generation.
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Legacy_era
The Legacy Era starts with major events surrounding Jacen Solo, then, after a large time gap, the Star Wars: Legacy comics begin.

You mean
Hidden/Spoiler:
When he turns to the darkside? TBH I always thought that would be Anakin from the little I read.
That's awesome. Thank you. ^.^

I would highly advice you read the graphic novel for the Thrawn Trilogy. It really defined the Star Wars EU, and with the excellent visuals it's even more spectacular.
