Alderaan Had It Coming

You know, in the original Star Wars movies, even though I was a fan of the Empire, I kind of felt bad for Alderaan. They kind of got blown up because of a really poor choice in judgement from Princess Leia and a moff that got up on the wrong side of the bed.

At least that's what I thought until I went to Alderaan in the game.

Frankly, I've never been to a planet that had more insufferable pipsqeak nobleman in all my life. Everyone is a whiny nincompoop that runs around polishing their ill gotten titles and complaining about the rope they are hung on.

Seriously, is this an inside joke by the developers?

After a brief stint on the planet you'll know what I mean. Vader and Tarkin did the universe a small favor by blowing that place to kingdom come.

i totally understand what you mean. my time on alderaan was incredibly painful and annoying. there's no word to describe how ***** i was at those pipsqueak
intelligence is knowing the words to share one's thought.

I might be running a lightside knight, but I was upset that *slap the diplomat* was never a choice. I'd take a few dark side points for that.

just seemed like political squabbling, as there always is everywhere.

I thought the planet looked awesome.. the quests were decent too.

(Republic) Taris on the other hand.. holy crap, Malak should've bombarded it more.

I dunno, he did a pretty thorough job. I mean, it was almost WORSE before he blew it up.

That thought alone keeps me up at night.

As for Alderaan... gotta admit, this thread made me chuckle. ;D Something to look forward to now, I suppose.
