The editors at GameRanx have put together a top five of unlikely sequels to role-playing games that they'd nonetheless like to see. Unsurprisingly, many of the titles listed would probably pique the interest of our readers, like a single player sequel to the Knights of the Old Republic saga.
#4 Knights of the Old Republic 3
Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel, released in 2003 and 2005 respectively, are thought of by many as the best games and stories within the Star Wars universe. The original won countless game of the year awards, and was repeatedly placed on IGN's best games of all time lists. After all, who could forget HK-47 or its famous plot twist which left your jaw unhinged? Knights of the Old Republic 2, while developed by a different company and certainly flawed, was a worthy sequel that left us craving more. Both games featured well-written, rich storylines and characters that had us learn the ways of the Jedi, explore the galaxy, and fight (or become) the evil in its shadows.
At the conclusion of Knights of the Old Republic 2, we were left with clues about the protagonist from the first game, and given hints that the protagonist and his or her prior companions might reunite for a storyline that would take players beyond the known space of the Republic. In fact, the story, quests, environments, characters and items were all written for the third game, but when Lucasarts faced financial difficulty, the project was canceled. Because BioWare's MMO, The Old Republic takes place 300 years after the original games, we may never have another adventure with Revan, Bastila, Carth or the others.
What I'd like to see in a sequel: A conclusion to the story outside of a brief mention or log entry in BioWare's Star Wars MMO. I want to see estranged lovers reunited and hidden foes confronted. Faster, more fluid combat would be welcome, too. I wouldn't be disappointed if a sequel implemented the lightsaber combat from Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy.
