  1. Short answer: you can't please everyone, all of the time. Longer answer: "IF" a K3 were ever to be made I wouldn't want to see Revan or Exile physically appear in it, this is kind of the same beef I have with them being in TOR and given 1 official canonical face; it kind of whitewashes the original playthroughs I had with Revan (at least for me anway) because it's like "who's this guy? That's not what (my) Revan looked like!".

     

    That is why i dont like Revan in TOR.

  2. That is completely true. By saying that the governemt is corrupt, I don't mean the PM, but his cabinet. The PM is there to keep the policy he's instructed to keep, and the cabinet is by his side to reach into the federal money for their needs. Two months ago, just as we entered 2011, Dora Bakoyianni, a Greek politician "smuggled", like a modern Han Solo, 1.000.000 Euro, which belonged to the state, to an account she has in Switzerland, so they wouldn't be found. She was unlucky and this became known, but she wasn't prosecuted, and no charges were pressed against her. She continues to go to the Parliament every day. :carms:

     

    Thats why i love our politicians! :D

  3. OT better than the PT.

     

    Reasons:

     

    1) Except episode 3, that i think that it is the 3 best star wars film after ANH and ESB, the acting in episode 1 and 2 was just horrible.

     

    2) The story is just.... idiotic. I mean the people elect a queen. ( Queen and democracy at the same time? If it was a constitutional monarchy, then okay, but this is unrealistic.).

     

    3) I hated Anakin in episode 1. He should have been older. Also i hated the space battle.

     

    4) In episode 2 there is no friendship between obi-wan and Anakin. I see more fighting between them, than friendship.

     

    5) In all 3 movies the romance dialogues were horrible.

     

    6) GL instead of having a good story, creates a movie based on special effects.

     

    Overall i prefer the OT, although i have to say that RoTS is better than RoTJ. And Qui-Gon is the only good character in the PT.

  4. I found this videos on youtube and i was amazed. Does anyone know about this project, or what this is? Is this some kind of fan made KOTOR 3? If yes then it is realy good.

  7. You're wrong. You clearly haven't played K1 and 2 and/or actually read Tales of the Jedi, or you just like to complain. Characters, organizations, planets, and so on from TOTJ do show up in KOTOR, and both BioWare and Obsidian loved to delve in the background of the era. In fact, one of the first things Obsidian did on the job was to read the Tales of the Jedi comics.

     

    A lot of what you're describing had even been changed long before BioWare came along. Things like the term Sith, red lightsabers, and the history of the Jedi had not been set in stone in the 90s, and this led to continuity errors caused by various authors contradicting each other without even knowing it. When Lucas finally sat down and defined a clearer history, Tales of the Jedi and others like it became out of date.

     

    Most of the changes the two developers made were stylistic ones. Technology that's falling apart and armored guys riding on the backs of flying robots were hard to portray at the time in a video game, and still are today. And in a lot of cases, they just thought it looked silly. These kinds of changes are common when adapting something from one media to anther. Stylistic elements of a comic don't always work in another format.

     

    Furthermore, when designing K1, BioWare initially planned to have the game more connected to the Tales of the Jedi series. It was to take place sooner after the Sith War, and Bastila Shan was actually Vima Sunrider, a character from TOTJ. When they were not allowed to do this for legal reasons regarding the name Sunrider, they decided to stay away from the comics more than they planned, setting the game a full 40 years after the Sith War and 30 years after the last TOTJ comic; characters who might have made an appearance in the game were now just names from history, while others had their backgrounds rewritten to fit the new timeline.

     

    You're also conveniently ignoring one important plot point: both the Jedi and the Sith freakin died after the Sith War. This is not something new. This was shown in Tales of the Jedi.

     

    The Jedi Order, with many of the oldest masters dead, was rebuilt from the ground up by younger Jedi like Nomi Sunrider. There were no masters left to teach the next generation, and many of the great teachings were lost. Even the damn Jedi library at Ossus was destroyed, and this is mentioned in K2. In fact, Atris' motivation throughout the game is to prevent this from happening again.

     

    The Sith, on the other hand, were completely dead. In fact, they had been completely dead in Tales of the Jedi too. Then they came back, caused a lot of trouble, and were then completely dead again! The Sith of KOTOR were different from the Sith of TOTJ; they were not trained by Sith, as Exar Kun, Ulic Qel-Droma, and the Krath had been. These were fallen Jedi, more like the original Dark Jedi that were cast out and later became Sith - no doubt why the conflict is later called the Jedi Civil War. They did scavenge the tombs of Korriban and other worlds, seeking out the knowledge of the past Sith Lords, but as clearly shown in K1, this wasn't something easy; the Sith had left traps behind, so their enemies couldn't steal their treasures, and only the most worthy Sith could survive and claim their secrets. K2 explains even further that many of these artifacts had been destroyed by eager Sith who didn't handle with care. And the Knights of the Old Republic comics even portray a shadow organization of Jedi tasked with hunting down and destroying Sith artifacts from the war. Again, this is not something new. The Jedi from TOTJ hid all knowledge of the Sith from their students as well. Others had made their way into the hands of those who couldn't grasp what they had - into museums and such. By KOTOR, the Sith were thoroughly dead twice over. And what secrets Revan did learn from the ruins of the Sith Empire, he kept hidden even from Malak.

     

    The rest of your complaints are simply laughable. Even when the games are actually stylistically faithful to Tales of the Jedi, you find something to complain about. A padawan with an unusual apt for Battle Meditation, a skill that normally takes years to develop - yeah, Nomi Sunrider was supposed to be Bastila's mother. A walking corpse and a Force vampire would also fit right in with ghosts and a zombie in a tin can. Tales of the Jedi is known for its more supernatural take on the Force, by far more so than anything else in the Expanded Universe, and some of these elements show up in the games, more so in K2.

     

    If you have seen anything of Star Wars beyond the films, by now you should know that other writers have other perspectives, that they disagree a lot, and you should be used to it. Hell, even TOTJ contradicts itself all the time, because there were two writers on board - Anderson and Vetich - who each had their own agenda. Star Wars is full of continuity errors and inconsistencies. If you have a problem with that, fine, but you can't blame it on one work that happens to not "fit in" with another from 15 years ago - especially when Lucas himself had already retconned the hell out of it, and when BioWare and Obsidian actually did try their best to keep the spirit of Tales of the Jedi intact. If you were like any normal fan - and by normal, I mean overly obsessed - you would have decided on your own little history that sorted out all the errors, instead of just complaining about it to people who don't care.

  8. Kotor is not a copy of PT,darth primus, the attack on Dantooine you say is a copy of ep 3 attack on coruscant,because episode 3 was realeased at 2005 while kotor 1 at 2003. maybe ep 3 copy kotor. and the purge of jedi on kotor 2 is an OT copy not a PT because if it cannot be a copy of ep 3 purge because kotor 2 was realeased at 2004.

     

    You may think Kotor 2 is not star wars. thats untrue. first of all you criticize kotor 2 of overpowerd sith lords but one of the creators of TOTJ said that after sith war 3, the sith wars became a circus. kotor 2 is beter than TOTJ because its not the usual fight of the bad and the good guy. its more philosofical. in Nar Shaddaa for ,examble, kreia says ,after you gave a poor man money, that what you did for good became bad. and after saws a video of an other poor man killing the poor man ,that you gave the money, for his money. you really think of what will happen if you use light or dark side of the force. and many star wars fans say that kotor 2 is more starwarshy than TOTJ.

  9. darth primus, whats the name of your book? it took me 30 minutes to read it. are you going to post and another part of this book?

     

    i found something at wookiepedia:

     

    Set shortly after the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi comic books from Dark Horse, the game bears little resemblance in appearance and aesthetics to the classic Star Wars games of the Clone Wars or Galactic Civil War eras. However, while the Tales of the Jedi series shows the galactic civilization to have an archaic retro-like aesthetic and technology (semi-organic skeletal ships with wings and membranes, stone buildings, etc.) the Knights of the Old Republic is more space-like and futuristic, yet the interval between them is only a few decades. One example of these changes was the use of navcomps and blasters in place of the hyperspace beacons and pulse-wave blasters of the Tales of the Jedi setting. The redundancy of the hyperspace beacons in particular would have dramatically reshaped the astrographic and strategic realities for space travel in the galaxy.

     

    Additionally, the game provided a full history of Tatooine and also explained the origins of Kashyyyk's ecosystem. It also offers up an alternate theory as to the original home planet of Humans by having a Sand People historian remark on the player's similarity to the ancients of their people, kidnapped by the Rakata many years before, implying that Tatooine is in fact the planet on which Humans originated. In order to emphasize its place in continuity, there are references and future events (like a possible first contact with the Yuuzhan Vong).

     

    As the game is set during a period long before the familiar films, the creators modeled their 'universe' on many characters and details from the movies, as well as including mentions of conceptual ancestors (for example, the Sith fighter is considered to be an ancestor of the later Sith Infiltrator) but not always (while Sith troopers seem to be based on the movie-era stormtroopers, it doesn't mean the clone troopers were historically based on them). Other examples of this include the modeling of characters, such as Darth Malak, a towering Dark Lord of the Sith who speaks through a vocabulator due to an old injury, very similar to Darth Vader, and the inclusion of Wookiee and droid companions as part of the player's party. Additionally, many scenes have direct analogues in the films, such as the capture of the main character's freighter smuggling vessel, the Ebon Hawk, by tractor beam, just as the Millennium Falcon was captured by the Death Star, followed by a prison break and loss of a character on board a vessel, which is very similar to the Death Star scene in the original film.

     

    There are also errors in regard to previous events such as the formation of the Republic. Several characters refer to it as having been established 15,000 years prior, [18] as opposed to the canonical 21,000[7] (although facts in the load file does state the Republic as being more than 20,000 years old).

  10. i didnt say that i didnt like the prequel trilogy or kotor, i say that if it was a bad copy of the PT then why the fans still love it.

     

    its an question for darth primus who says that kotor is a bad copy of the PT.

     

    ofcours everyone has its own opinion. i just asked something.

  11. if kotor is a crap then why every review says that is a very good game and the fans still love it after so many years?

     

    in all of your posts the only thing you tell is tha the game sucks because of its tecnology and of its seting.

     

    you say nothing about the storyline expect dart nihilous, darth sion and how malak betray revan. where is all the other storyline?

  12. first of all THERE WAS A JEDI COUNCIL AT THE TIME OF EXAR KUN look at the youtube in TOR timeline 10 yhe exar kun war.

     

    Second malak was revans best friend. thats why he didnt sence his betrayal.

     

    Revan was at the heart of the force kreia said in kotor 2. thats something special.

     

    And about the storyline ? you cant say the game is crap only because of his tecnology. if it was 500 years after TOTJ would you like the main storyline and the dialog system and freedom of kotor?
