I would prefer them not to do this. I think when you make a choice you should accept it. I am not a fan oh let me change my decision, I didn't think it through.

But if they change it oh well they do but they can never say choices matter because they won't.

That/'s like saying, "Choices matter until they don't." Being able to up and undo any previously made choice whenever you want because you regret them or because X npc is being a jerk now so you're going to go back and kill them or because you chipped a nail or because <insert whatever reason> really means they don't matter at all. They only matter when you have to deal with the consequences of said choices which you don't have to do if you can just go back and change them whenever.

There are already precious few choices that actually have an impact on the story. I'd rather not see them remove that entirely. I'd also rather not see them create a way for the story flags to be possibly messed up. It's bad enough when bugs happen as it is.

Oh right. () When you make a choice it should stay that choice for it to matter. To change it because oh whoops I didn't know that would happen is not a choice. It is like I want to make a choice but if I don't like it I want to change it because of a (insert reason of choice). It is one thing if it a bug, that should be fixed but just because I didn't like the outcome is not a reason to change it and if they do that then choices do not matter.

fine, then the ability to do so after we beat the story. honestly, i feel like a few of you are making this into a bigger issue then it needs to be. this is a game-one that is meant to be played your individual way-if you make an error-you sould be able to redo it. i also don't see how someone else doing so affects anyone else-YOU don't have to use that option. arguing about this is just plain silly. aside from reduing choices and poor performances-it could help when players restart and abandon bonus quests......................you do that and you're screwed. if you don't want to redo your story, fine- please don't get in the way of those who do. i make a habit to be rude to those i don't know me-but how someone chooses to play their game is really none of your business. i'm not trying to be mean here-but this shouldn't really be an issue.

I am going to suggest that you didn't want to go there. I don't think you wanted to come across telling me what posts I can post on and disagree with on the forums.

If you're in the middle of a cut scene you can always ESC out and change a choice that way, before the cut scene concludes. You can also reset some class story missions if they're not quite finished.

Other than that, though, what's done is done. The nice thing about SWTOR is that you can always make another character identical to the one with unwanted choices and play through again as you wish. A lot of items of value can be unlocked in collections so your new characters have them, too. So if you need a 'redo' you can go for it that way.

I'll admit I don't have a lot of sympathy for missing out on SoR because at the beginning of KOTFE, when you pick up that mission, there are I think three different popups asking if you are really, really sure you want to start it. You're warned it will affect story and companions.

There are a few lines referencing SoR and Ziost events here and there (if you romanced Lana in SoR there's one [flirt] exchange on the Gravestone that is different. I'm guessing it might be the same for Theron in his romance dialogue; and there are at least three references to Ziost I can think of), but overall it doesn't really mean much for your KOTFE runthrough. The story unfolds the same regardless.

Romancing Lana or Theron in SoR does have a minor effect on their romance dialogue in Kotfe, yes.

Sometimes it's possible to undo a decision or dialogue choice after a conversation has ended if you are able to reset the mission. But if the conversation was the last part of the mission and it automatically ends afterward, you can't.

Well to the Op. H_Y_D_R_A
We all go on with our stories in SWTOR, good choices, bad choices and lucky choices all, its what makes our characters who they are. SWTOR stories *Typically do have an impact adding a bit of Depth and at times requiring a moment (or two) of thought, this is what makes these stories worlds above other games flimsy, so what, does nothing, go back and redo that later if I don't like it games. Some choices Are critical (Torian/ Vette) some not (Take Koth or Senya) and some have no good answer (Kneel or Not, *This I believe if Zakuul played out 100% would've had a great impact). We have our lives and our choices do define who we become.

I've also made some bad ones and one in particular recently with my S.I. I still cringe at now that I'm not "In the heat of the moment". That character will just have to move on and try to put that behind them. That is a spot that character will never live down or get past; redemption for that S.I. is most likely out of the question now.
(Valkorian's "Sacrifices")

If the character(s) your referring to is/ are Sith think of it this way; Darth Vader will Never forget Padme and Vader's castle on Mustafar is built overlooking the exact spot he jumped attacking Obi-wan and Obi-wan cut off his arm and legs then left him for dead after his *Choices. His tank for when he's out of the life support suit supposedly gives a great view of the exact spot where his last choice ended. In this way now you can go on feeling a bit of what Vader lived with for 25 years

I'm not trying to be a bad guy here, just saying these choices make our characters who they are otherwise the stories would be unimportant.
