  1. Korriban and Kashyyyk are my favorites.
  2. Yeah, I think that's why in Mass Effect, they ditched the different languages for the non-human species, because it was annoying... and of course everyone complained that the aliens spoke english. Devs can't win it seems.
  3. I loved Juhani in the first game for the simple reason that her problems weren't solvable by Revan in 8 easy steps, (unlike all the other party members), because her worst enemy is herself. And that's not going to just go away with some female bonding and a latte (or the SW equivalent of a latte).
  4. I, and Kreia, beg to differ: "You have gathered Sith holocrons, Sith teachings from across the galaxy. It is why you have chosen servants who cannot feel the Force. And most importantly, they cannot feel what you have become."
  5. Hmm, I found Bao-Dur's voice to be very indicative of a man who seems calm on the surface, but in reality who's anger is barely held in check. Funny how different people see things, isn't it?
  6. I think Malak had tons of potential and BioWare dropped the ball by making him into a horribly cliche villian.
  7. Aww, so much Bao hate makes Melly sad.
  8. Yeah, me! And several other ladies on other boards. Seriously, Bao-Dur is my favorite character and I would be completely hacked and loathe this game that I love now, if it turned out he died.
  9. Nope, someone just wants indisputable proof.
  10. If memory serves, and it might not, the LS ending to the game was made canon long before TSL was even created. It's also an homage (or a rip off depending on your point of view) to the ending of A New Hope. And honestly I don't see how the LS ending would make any less sense in the context of TSL than the DS ending would. In fact the DS ending makes less. I mean Revan has an unlimited army at his/her beck and call, an apprentice that can perform Battle Meditation, and s/he abandons it all to go fight this threat to his/her power by him/herself? That makes no sense to me.
  11. I refuse to believe my Bao is dead. Until I see indisputable proof in game, or actually hear it, in person, from Chris Avellone's mouth I refuse to believe it.
  12. *sigh* They couldn't of thought up something more original than that? I mean "Revan did it" seems so predictable.
  13. So true, but having the whole revalation scene with Jolee in his sock suspenders is just too much for me. I mean that scene's supposed to be all serious and here I am cracking up over Jolee's undies.
  14. I prefer the Exile. I just like her story better because it's more personal. She's searching for the truth about herself, and putting the past to rest.
  15. I always use Juhani, mainly for story purposes, because she's the only one that doesn't have to break her way out of prison to break everyone else out of prison.
  16. Not really. His affinity for machines and fixing things, that he's so damn good at it, is a sign of Force sensitivity. As for the rest let's just agree to disagree, otherwise this will just go round and round until I go crazy.
  17. Well, that's just what I've heard on the forums over the years, that she was cut, and then put back in the game in a slap dash way at the last minute. *shrug* Next time you play, really watch her in the scene in the grove after you beat her down. She's defeated in more than just battle, and trying to convince herself she was evil. She never was really. You may never have heard this, because it's a little difficult to trigger, but she says later: "That I could convince myself that by injuring my master I became a great force of evil in the galaxy. For my pride, my hubris." I think if one of the masters had actually gone out there and talked to her after the incident with the Quatra she would have come back with one of them (as long as it wasn't Vrook ), not just because the PC chatted her up. Oh, neither do I. I think this is the appeal of the character Valen in HotU to me, in that while he's the romance option in that game, it was the Seer that started him on his path to redemption, not the PC. And the Seer didn't even say anything to him! Juhani IMO is a lot like Bao- a woman of action not words. She even tells you that she had trouble making friends and finds the ease in which you accept her (if you do so) to be different than what she's used to. I get the feeling the PC was the only one she ever really talked to on the ship, because of that. Did she? The only way she would is if you actually took her with you. I think it was. Bao always struck me as a man of action not words, is the 'strong silent type'. He fit well with my Exile, cause she's kinda the same way. Why didn't you think his Jedi training made any sense? And it was originally planned for a training sequence in which you taught him lightsaber forms, deflect blaster bolts from Remote, etc, but it was cut probably due to time. *shakes fist at LucasArts** Anyway, it's late so I hope that made at least some measure sense.
  18. Well, I did have a nice post all typed up but the forums ate it, must be the Darth Nihilus of forums. That's because at one time, she was cut entirely from the game, (or so I've heard) under the pretense that she was "too much content for female character vs. male characters" they can't fool me it was because she's a lesbian. But cutting her out left problems in the plot so she was put back in the half-arsed way we see now, with her romance gutted and difficult to trigger (what is there can be triggered though, with some effort and careful timing). I will say that I used to hate Juhani, until I actually listened to what she had to say. Then my hate turned to empathy. I would have to say that she was easy to redeem in the first place because she wanted to be, but was afraid to go back for fear of being punished. Anyway, what I loved about her, and Yuthura if you talk to her on Dantooine, is that they show that coming back to the light and staying there isn't easy. That's one of the things that's always annoyed me about Bastila's storyline is that you never got to talk to her post redemption. Actually, you did ask for her life story. They're right, you really are Darth Carterious aren't you? Gurges-Ahter, I'm a raving Bao fangirl, we're a crazy lot and you can't talk sense into us. I guess I just see more than most in Bao, maybe because I drag him everywhere with me. Besides he has the best line in the entire game IMHO, the one in my sig.
  19. You think she's underdeveloped? Why? I thought she was one of the best developed characters in the game. Not to mention she has the most to say about each planet you visit, even though they were cut. Did you ever talk to Yuthura on Dantooine after convincing her to leave the Sith and give the Jedi another chance? No.
  20. Do we get to know why? Or do we have to guess? And of course Mission's bratty, she's a teenager.
  21. Not to mention that in game my PC went looking for that missing patrol that the Sith patrol you encounter tells you about, in the hopes of finding rakghoul serum.
  22. And what would be the point of telling him he was Force sensitive if he wasn't strong enough in it to be trained as a Jedi?
  23. There's three possibilities there: He dislikes Jedi, or at least doesn't fully trust them, so he probably wouldn't want to turn his life over into their hands. He doesn't know. Or he's not Force sensitive enough to be trained as a Jedi, but has enough sensitivity to have a higher perception and intuition than your average Joe.
  24. That is the lamest thing I have ever heard, I can't remember who said it but I'll quote them, "Who writes the EU now, monkeys?" Since in game it's said repeatedly that anyone infected with the disease gets mutated.
  25. Yeah, pretty sure it means what I said. He's saying that there are worse things to lose than those you love.
