This is star wars no one is truly dead if they don't leave a corpse behind and even then it's a 50/50 chance it seems. Since you never really see him die just purple lightning release and his body disappear while he is still standing and holding his side, he may have the power narrative on his side. No power of the force compares to the power of being important for the story as a whole to move forward.

Just like the boss at the end of FE I am betting we see Revan again alive and well in future content

It's a segment of a story I'm writing, yes.

Unfortunately, there's only a small segment that pertains to Revan thus far (The overall story is...more than a little incomplete.)

Well once you finalize it, send me a link to it. I'm hoping to read it

....Ok...I'm starting to get tired of hearing ppl say "leave him in his own time"....are you people so blind as to see....this....is...still...his...time....Revan is the Heart of the Force, the best darn Tactician in all of Star Wars and the only Jedi for a very long time to be able to use both Light and Dark side powers without falling. I ultimatly feel, if anyone can become immortal, and I don't mean one with the force nor wired on pain like the emporer to stay juiced up.

As for Revan's final fate, you never actually see him die. He just sort of disappears, so we left the door open just a little bit in case we want to ever bring him back.
Thanks for that.

Fans would nor have will never, never, ever, ever, be happy with his 'final fate'. It could end with him grabbing the Emperor and pulling him into a volcano to finally end the war and people would still be unsatisfied that he is dead. At the same time if he was left alive they would be complaining he doesn't do ENOUGH if he was still alive and kicking.

BioWare shouldn't have included him - personally - at all in my opinion. The odd quests here and there like the Revanite chain would have been good and left an air of mystery surrounding him. It felt like they just threw him out there as fanwank and killed him off just to say "There, you got your Revan and now he's dead. You can shut up about it".

I almost cried when i heard what Revan said. the mirror of what Darth Malak said, it gives me chills to this day.

and there is no way he is dead, and if he is, i would be genuinely mad, i mean he has to die eventually, and im ok with killing him, but NOT in a MID LEVEL FLASHPOINT. when we were fighting him i noticed two things; he disappeared before we dropped his health to 0, and there was no corpse.

he is alive, he's alive.

I am just saying but evey great character has an end. Revan is just the same as everyone else except for the fact that he is extremly strong in the Force making him speical. That being said I do not douht that Revan is not alive in fact I think that he may have used a technique that transported him somewhere or another who knows.

But, every great character has an ending evwn though that ending may not be the best.

Cool story by the way. I have my own story that I may or may not work on depending on time.

Some people are playing this game BECAUSE of Revan - they just want to find out want happened to hero they played in previous games. Not including him would be a big mistake that would be met with disappointment from many KotOR fans and BioWare knew/knows this. :P

Still, I agree that not fully explaining character's final fate is good ending - it leavs fans to wonder what happened to him and they can imagine it themselves. Imo they should create awesome quality story in TOR related to Revan and than somehow leave his fate unexplained once again when the game is closing in to it's end. Killing him, as you said will still be met with some people's frustration.

Yeah, they changed the Foundry's ending for a reason though I was still not certain that Revan would reappear later on in the game. The moment Drew said that they left the window open for Revan's return I was 100% sure that he will come back.
