Had K2 been finished, not contained fatal bugs that were never fixed, not been so full of scripted events that took control away from the player effectively had it been made by Bioware not [expletive deleted] Obsidian... This is all true. But I still voted for 2... I just prefer the darker tones to...

I agree with this - I remember raising the point back when there was discusison about a possible K3. Somebody like an Obiwan or a Kyle Katern is hardly a pushover - you can be LS and authoritative, rather than a "softie".

It's one of those really annoying things in K2, and this isn't even the worst example. The one I really hate is how you cannot enter Mandalorian cache on Dxun unless you get the explosives in a totally unrelated incident from a totally different NPC on another planet. Oh, and you get only one chang...

True! I really should experiment with planet order more though, just to see the different dialogue between characters etc. - I tend to replay K2 more than K1 though.

I don't have a set order but I tend to go to Korriban last. It just kind of makes sense - you wouldn't walk into a sith academy while you were still a novice jedi...

We've talked a lot here about storyline, characters and bugs. So, leaving that to one side for the moment, one thing that often strikes me when I go back to K1 after playing K2 is how much more I prefer the interface of the second game. Am I in a minority here, or do other people find the K2 handlin...

Hmm. The obvious suggestion is try from an earlier savegame, but the whole game saving then loading an older game is new to me.
How much earlier is the old game loading from?

One of the things I like about this game is that each character has a bit of "not quite what they seem" about them - everyone has a bit of Dark Side and Light Side. I saw that first scene you mentioned as a suggestion that T3 was a bit more than just a cute little droid. And an example of everybody ...

I've had difficulties the other way, actually, trying to side with Talia and being stuck with Tobin. (The way I see it, if I was DS, I wouldn't side with somebody who had tried to kill me very recently, and would rather go for the powerful yet manipulable ruler. But still.) As far as I'm aware, your...

I guess the obvious thing is to reload an earlier save, if you have one, and try again. I've never heard of this glitch, I have to say.

My strategy is basically the same as the duelling ring, and most other places on Taris - grenades!
And somebody mentioned T3's flamethrower - I seem to remember T3 beating the governor practically on his own when I messed up with my PC a few times.

Do you get Mira if you're strictly neutral? I have a feeling you do.
It's quite annoying that there's no way around this, as I often want a DS character but with Mira in the team, which means always having to go to Nar Shadaa first and then start piling up the DS points. Ho hum.

As I recall, Bao-Dur doesn't have any Hawk-specific dialogue, so if you take him outside in your party and have a chat with him, you should get all the information and influence you need for a lightsaber etc.

Everything you wrote here revolves around one thing: Kotor 2: TSL. TSL completely f***** up Revan's story. In Kotor 1 he had a motive that was understandable and his goal was good. You can't just ignore the parts of the story that you don't like! I've always seen TSL as suggesting that there are mo...

So, given all of that, Revan is guilty of genocide by modern and historical definition. He went to war for the sake of killing Mandalorians. He killed those who opposed him and raked up a death toll that most armies are hard pressed to match. I think you're on firmer ground arguing that Revan used ...
