You mean that outfit?
In that case, i want a stormtrooper outfit. http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...by_obihahn.jpg
and for my bounty hunter i would like to have a mandalorian shock trooper armour in the style of boba fetts armour. http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/manua...armor-1000.jpg

but thats not how the game is designed. It doesnt take place around the time of the "iconic" movies. No outfits are exact copies of the movie outfits.

Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

Really? Show me where they use stormtrooper armour and mandalorian armour in the style of boba fett in KotOR and KotOR2...

Or did you mean that they wore outfits like these: http://www.freewebs.com/darthmoeller/tsljedirobes1.jpg
Because you CAN wear an outfit like that... you will just have to settle for wearing LIGHT armour instead of HEAVY.
since, you know, they are made out of cloth.

To all the contrarian posters is this thread, why does it possibly matter to you? There is a sizable population of players that want these types of iconic armor sets.

What is it in your deluded little, self-important world that would make you oppose a reasonable request that would help thousands of fellow player enjoys the game more and thus make the game more successful??????????????????????????

Because its kinda silly to request looks from the movies that take place thousands of years later and are only iconic because of that?
Because its already possible to have these outfits in the game but you have to sacrifice your heavy armor (wich makes sense since plain cloth isnt really "heavy armour")?
Because your "sizable" portion is simply anecdotal and not based on anything but a few people whining about it here over and over?
Because the OP said "actually want to look like they do in the real star wars universe" as if this isnt part of the "real" star wars?
Because this is a completely different era where jedi are soldiers, not peacekeeping diplomats and thus wear armour (you know, kinda like they do in the clone wars? But im guessing thats not "iconic")?
Because its already possible to do this in-game? Oh wait, i said that already didnt i?

In the "actual" canon universe?

soooo... that would be the movies only then... and nothing but the movies?

The clone wars series obviously doesnt count since they do have armor there.

Admit it, you simply want a robe so you can look like obi-wan kenobi but without losing your precious heavy armor bonus.


Well, since you can now prance around in a bikini and still get heavy armor i say why not. Im mostly ticked off at the general attitude in this thread that you somehow know more about what is "correct" star wars than me or anyone else.

Silly to request looks from 3000 years later - what? Hey, read through the journal of Master Gnost-Dural from 0 years later, I beg you!

Wait, don't bother. I found them for you! Images of characters/events taking place approximately at the time of the Sith invasion before the Treaty and a bit after.

Don't really see him wearing armor when fighting the Sith. This is a traditional Jedi outfitting and we just want to look like generic Jedi.

I must ask the question of why wearing brown robes will somehow make the game more enjoyable? I mean, if you're already enjoying the game, why does it matter what clothes you're wearing?

What does it matter if you're wearing brown robes with no armor or brown robes with armor? It doesn't give you a higher chance at loot. It doesn't make your social points get a 10% increase. No XP bonus, no chance of group priority in the queues, no guarantee of a WZ win.

So what would robes do that the current sets we already have cannot?
