Yessss, to all those. And another: I got really into the Halo universe backstory, based on the video games, in middle school. There were a few books and collections of stories, some of which became plot lines for future games in the series.

A massive part of most of those books were -- wait for it -- the Spartan school. Where Master Chief and the other Spartan super soldiers were trained. It's totally a cribbing of Ender's Game, but I couldn't get enough of it.
