Asked why the boss in dark tower must be ghast, could not you come up with a monster of your past, like a hydra?
Yeah, seriously. I mean, you coded a Naga, you coded a Litch, you coded a Centaur/Mooshroom thing, and you coded a GOD DAMN HYDRA!!!! (excuse my language), but you can't code a unique monster for the Dark Towers? Could you make it such that it's a Shadow Mage or something similar? That would work alongside your lore (The Shadow Mage was once a powerful Twilight Wizard, like the Twilight Litch, but the darkness of the Dark Forest twisted his mind and powers, causing him to become the Shadow Mage). Here are it's abilities:
Unlike the Litch, he's more "Direct", so he'll assault you quickly and freakishly!
1. He Turns invisible by using the Darkness, and fires Orbs of Evil that blind you!
2. When his health is low, he spawns Ghasts that fight alongside him, you need to shoot them down, or you could use their fireballs to your advantage by reflecting them on the Shadow Mage.
3. when he's out of Power, he'll pull the Dark Blade out
and attack you. The Dark Blade should have the ability to either Blind you, or for more variety, give you Wither effect!
When he dies, he will drop either the Evil Staff (fires orbs of evil), the Dark Blade, or the Ghast Sceptre.
What do you think? It sounds like it would fit more into your mod's theme and fits more to the Dark Forest theme rather than a Giant Ghast.
