I think Revan, just like Luke, needs to die canonically so that there can be someone that takes their place...

So my idea would to bring him back in a new flashpoint or Op. With the story being that at the end of the foundry when he disappears in the flash of light, he actually uses fold space to escape death. Then while being thought dead, He was slowly collecting his strength back to peak form while delving further into the darkside due to the taint from being imprisoned and mindphucked by Vitiate. So playing on how Revan was seen at the end of the foundry (Crazy+Dark) he aims to continue on with his plans of destroying the emperor and eradicating the sith.

So Revan gathers a huge army of followers using his famed charisma/leadership and gains allies of rebellious sith (humans,aliens-none with traces of Sith DNA) Revanites, and even Recruits Mandalore and the mandalorians (who don't trust the emperor anyways and want to break away from the sith and respect Revan enough to do it.)

All the meanwhile the emperor is still recovering his energy from the battle with the jedi champion so is in no position to oppose any of this atm so uses his Wrath and Dark council members to deal with Revan. Revan then wages total war on dromund kaas with Mandolorian Basilisk flying over head. Large lightsaber battles between loyal emperors sith and Revans followers. Which ends with Revan taking over Kaas City and the emperors throne room in which he holds and waits for a response from the emperor.

Thus Brings a Tier 2 HM/ or preferably OPS that has the emperor send his Wrath,council member NOX, cipher 9, and the Great hunt champion ect. to destroy him once and for all.

Which would have you fight bosses leading up to Revan such as (mandalore the Vindicated, Maybe a traitor Dark council member-Decimus/Ravage? , And maybe 1 other boss I can't think of.

Then you would arrive to Revan (in his darth outfit+mask) get a cool lil cutscene before you fight. Then while fighting the game should have Revan show his full array of attacks such as (keeping large OPS in mind) Massive force storms,Whirlwinds,force choke group ccs similar to malgus, Telekenisis Boulder throws, force heal himself, to name a few.

And when he enrages maybe he can pull out a second saber and go into Jar'Kai style with his Purple/Red Saber?

All this just came together as i was typing so of course bioware can clean it up a bit and make it fit with the story/canon but i think this would be a fitting death for the most iconic character in my opinion from the old republic era.

what do you guys think?

EDIT: Couldn't really think of a way to fit in the pub version of this FP/OP so maybe you guys could (not that i would care if they got one or not) lol IMPS UP!
You want Revan to survive the Foundry to... kill him again?

Isn't enough that they butchered his character once. Now you want to bring him back so they can do it again.

Side note: I feel that, after the Bane trilogy, DK's work has gone down hill.

I take it you didnt reach ilum yet? Malgus has an intersting story arch, also i bet they are keeping things in reserve about the emperor for the future of the game.
But i get what you saying.

About Revan as much i like him, bringing him back, or making canon facts of of this nature either of the exile as well was a big mistake.
Bringing him back one more time... is bucthering his legacy one more time imo.

The last we need in this game is more Revan. As Rayla pointed out, Drew screwed up Revan and Meetra. Bioware made it worse. If they do anything with Revan it should be in a side quest where you discover that he died at the Foundry and leave it there. Revan needs to be laid to rest for good. No need to ruin him even more.

I say bring him back, give it another shot. Ya'll need to get over what happened with the book and at the foundry.
"Darkness is a friend, an ally. Darkness allows us to understand others, to see what they value when they believe no one else is looking. It allows us to be honest with ourselves, to express those values that we would disavow in the light. The light blinds us. It is only in the dark that we see clearly."

I thought these were all dead , like him in the Foundry. Let me explain something

1 Revan Died Epicly , he died to 4 powerful in their own Right Characters at the Foundry , hes not a "GOD"
2 I am sick of people thinking every Character death has to meet what they feel is "EPIC" and "Justicfied" . Its sad Fanboism on behalf of every RAGGGGGGER over "My CHaracter died and it was not how Canonically they should have" or " They ignored Canon when they killed my Character " . It happened get over it !
3 Revan hopefully died , hes served his purpose . I love Foundry , I do not get why Revan Fans get their panties in a twist when they talk about it ?!

We most likely do need a new Villian , but Revan won't be that person . He finally found himself in Death . He went out all Obi-Wan and Sidious like . When powerful Forceusers die they usually die in some fantastic way , like Sidious when Vader tossed him down they Giant Pipe Gutter like a Doll.

You might not like the way your Characters are killed , but thats life and no one ever likes how their favorite characters die .
Canonly it happens , in order to kill a Character it has to be agreed upon through the chains Period.

EDIT: The only thing I am upset about with Meetra and TOR is they could not atleast give her , her own look like everyone else thats important . Well and the Emperor , his character model is not special either.
Someone said Meetra Surik name is not cool , I think it fricken Rocks !
The Revan Novel is canon , like it or not , you cannot change that . It was made Canon by those you claim to respect for everything you like . So there for it did not ignore Canon if it is Canon , because now whatever Happen in it is Canon .

You're an idiot. It's not PC, but it's my opinion... *shrugs*

I don't suppose you read any of George Lucas's books? The star wars moveis were made off a series of nine books written by the old man himself. When Sideous got tossed down into the power core he, Like the current Sith emperor, did not die. His body was destroyed, sure, but the little **** simply went force ghost, retreated to his fortress of doom and used an already prepared clone body of himself to come back. The next three books, which are soon to be movies by the way, are about how he's rapeing the new galactic republic from the shadows and trying to steal Anakin Solo's body.

NOT ONLY THAT! but our current emperor is still arround! he's hiding out on dromud kaas and using operatives to harvest tech from Darth Sidious's war to try and resurect the empire that Bane tore down. Yeah, the old fart is still tiredly trying to consume the galaxy after 10 THOUSAND years.

They cant save the other 3 because they KILLED them off, there's nothing that can be done. I understand what your saying about leaving characters in the past but Bioware DIDNT leave them in the past they brought them back.
Droids are easy to save. T3 copied his memories into a T7 model as backup. HK would be more likely to backup than T3

As for Jedi/Sith they never die, They come back as force spirits and screw with the universe for years
