RPG Roundtable #2, Part Two

RPGVault has posted the second installment of their second RPG Roundtable feature, in which they talk to another handful of developers about character development. Here's a snippet from Mike Gallo, producer on LucasArts and BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic:
As part of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic team, I think that one of the things that the writers from BioWare were able to do was to really make some interesting supporting characters to flesh out the worlds. I really felt like it was these other characters being so strong, and having a personality that drew people further into the story. Finally, a huge part of that was the decision early on to have every character that you talk to have a full voice set. This is a huge advantage to telling a story like this, and again, draws you into the story a little more.
