As much as there is to enjoy in the game there's one thing with the story that keeps bugging me: How often my actions have galactic level consequences. I'm not just talking about the main story.

Seems like every time I turn in a mission I'm told that my actions have saved countless lives. I've stopped lord knows how many Armageddons.

Being told how great I am time after time really dilutes the whole idea of the compliment. I get that the dialogue is supposed to come off as rewarding. But I don't need to hear of my awesomness again and again. Trust me... I know

By making this post you have saved thousands of people from a life of slavery under the Empire.

Agree 100%. It's a little less annoying on the Empire side, but then you get the same level of credit for advancing the Empire's objectives.

Maybe you need to choose dark side options more?

My quest turn in's tend to go like this:

Questgiver: "Well done. You are incredible."

Me: "I know."

Questgiver: "Don't be an ahole."

Heh you're probably right. Then it'll just be the extreme on the other side. Sometimes a simple thanks is all thats needed. And some credits... And commendations...

As a Sith Inquisitor, I assume they're all kissing my rear for fear I'll put a bolt where the sun don't shine.

In addition to the fact that your character seems to be the best of the best of the best in everything. He is no more than 25 and has already done things no one else (besides 700k other players) could accomplish. It's especially accented in Sith/Jedi storylines.

The life of a legendary hero is never easy.
I'm a Sith Enchantress, I do evil Sith dances! And when you look into my eyes, I'll put you in trances! And you know what I'll do? I will make a Sith brew! And finish you off with force lighting too! Soooooooooooo, watch out!

This is why I don't really enjoy playing on Republic. Too much of too many annoying little things.

On Empire side, the NPCs just worship my warrior, he does his job and causes chaos whenever possible and all in the name of the Emperor. If there's some officer who disapproves, he/she usually dies by very Darth Vaderish force choke and then gets instantly replaced by more approving person.

yes. that trend of pumping up the main character/player in games is irritating me to no end. its way out of bounds.

this has become a trend especially in rpgs. and bioware is taking it up way too much with its recent titles.

there is a point where pumping up crosses the ridiculous line, and it has been passed long ago.

you know what is much more believable and realistic ? being a participant in a grand story - just like how star wars is. all characters in star wars saga were just participants in a grand scheme of things - even luke was just another figure, like anakin, like yoda, they just played their part in how things have unfolded. none of them single handedly saved the galaxy.
