The Exile *was* a she, I guess.

I apologize I thought you didn't know that and was just trying to be helpful by pointing that out so the Revanites didn't try to rip you a new one.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

I admit I'm being a bit willfully disingenuous. My point is basically that invalidating player choice by making choices about what "canon" gender or personality or appearance or motivations Revan has was a disservice to the fanbase and a betrayal of one of the basic principles of BioWare gaming (well, BioWare gaming prior to circa ME2), and something like "the official meeting between Revan and Satele!" would make it worse, by putting that much more content and "canon" around Revan that has to be ignored by those of us who reject BioWare's screwing with our PC.

To me, if the new lead writer says "no, I'm not going to do more Revan stuff," that would be a good sign; it would mean that he has a respect for the BioWare ideal of "the player decides who the PC will be," and that would mean that when more story content is made that centers on our SWTOR characters, it's more likely we'll have a lot of choice and freedom in defining how they react to the new events they're now a part of.

Big deal? Get over it.

Revan was male. He was human. He turned insane. He became bent on genocide, justifying the slaughter of billions for nothing more than vengeance.

Perhaps if you didn't say such a stupid thing that revan was female no one would haft to correct you.

I agree that it was a complete disservice to make a canon Revan and a canon Exile. LucasArts should have just left that all alone. I am dreading the day that they decide to make canon decisions for our characters in this game (It'll happen over time), in fact wookieepedia already assumes that all Imperial characters are darkside and all Republic characters are lightside. What's done is done though, we might as well try to make the best of it and hope that something else like this doesn't happen in the future.

As for the "body or it didn't happen" crowd...try running False Emperor on normal mode in Rakata Gear.
Happy now? ;D
I was waiting for someone to bring that up lol

I for one hope Malgus comes back.

Spoiler


as for Revan.
Not having him come back would be a massive mistake in regards to story content.

Spoiler


That's my take on it anyway lol
If force choking Jawas is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I just am sad at the fact that if you don't use mods... you can't play the "canon" exile (female exile, with Handmaiden as a party member.

Oh my, there's a couple of real intellectual luminaries in this thread. I'd offer to type slower next time but somehow I don't think that would help.

What's even sadder is that that mod doesn't play nice with the all-important Restoration Project. I ended up just swapping the gender bit in the savegame editor before I left Telos; it's a little less fluid but it's worth it to get Handmaiden instead of Disciple and still have access to the TSLRP stuff.

Read into the lore.. neither Revan nor Malgus are dead.. Revan uses a force ability called "Fold Space" that more or less teleports him in a flash of light.. and Malgus.. well not all of his lore is complete either, but he does survive and goes on to writing teachings which in a few thousand years Darth Sidious gives to Vader to study...but still the point being.. neither are dead.. offiicially
