The KotOR fans most likely translate into fans of the story when playing this game, the story in this game is so spread apart by filler questlines that it becomes hard to enjoy the momentum of the story, at least I find it this way.
"Quick you must stop the evil bad guy from destroying the planet! But first could you go pick up my dry cleaning and get some beers from the store?" Yeah, the side quests really do kill the story flow.
Personally, if someone does make another SW RPG, I hope it is set way in the future. Set it a couple hundred years past the Legacy comics or something.
