What would the point of a KOTOR 3 be? This game is already at least 8 times the content that could be in a stand alone game. Each class story is equivalent to a stand alone game, and then the real intricacy is playing them all and watching it all fit together. This game gets better the more you focus on the story.

Plus, I don't want one second of development time taken away from this game.

I played KOTOR I and II. They were my first Bioware games. They're one of the reasons I don't play FPS games that much anymore.

No, i haven't played it, but i got both of Steam for a total of 18€ a f couple weeks ago.
Not had much time to play them, with 3 MMO's and several other single player games.
Do hope to get time for them soon tho.

Statement: There are only a select number of meatbags who have attempted to play that game. I believe my master is one of them.

KoTOR was one of those rare gems of a game that comes around once a decade.

So I am a fan but I'm not sure it is necessary from this game's point of view.

In fact, a certain series of flashpoints makes everything you achieve in KoTOR I and II sort of useless.

But from a "certain point of view" everything you achieve in TOR is sort of useless considering we all know how the story eventually ends in a few thousand years aboard the Death Star .

Some of what you said is actually not true.

And as far as what you achieve in TOR being useless because of what happens in the movies, so much more happens all the way up to 1,000 years prior to the movies. So that leaves roughly 2,500 years of war in the Galaxy

I played both KOTOR I and II.

How it went from those two games to this...is beyond me. It was nice some of the things from 1 and 2 were cleared up, like what happened to the underdwellers in I.

But my major problem, is how much this looks like the fight between the rebellion and the empire, even the armors and symbols are the same.

Why didn't the Sith keep more along the lines of KOTOR I and II as far as armor and symbols instead of reaching forwards to Palpatine's empire.

And if this did happen, why the hell is nobody a student of history during the events of 3 and notice "Hey the republic just fought a sith empire, and suddenly we are turning INTO an empire. Isn't this not wrong?"

Just little things like this.

I played both.
I love how the RPG style stayed true.
Alot of people dislike the game because of that,
But I've always valued good RPG over PVP.

KOTOR 1 should be mandatory, KOTOR 2 should be recommended, before you can play SWTOR.

As much as I have enjoyed this MMO, particularly its stories, My experiences in the KOTOR games far exceed what I have experienced in this. Anybody who disagrees let me ask you this. Would you play any of the TOR character class stories more then once, or twice maximum? No. I played through the two KOTOR games probably around 10 times in the past 7,8 years and let me tell you. I NEVER GOT BORED. And once I am done the 8 classes in this game, you can count on me playing through those classic games again.

KOTOR > SWTOR

KOTOR 3 should have been made before this, its crime it was never released. I can only pray someone opts to finish it someday. It deserves a proper ending.
