I find most stories written in fantasy worlds by authors often reflect signs of the time during that authors life or reflects other periods of time that include social, political, gender and/or racial situations. These topics naturally stir passion in people, so are often common themes.

Movies can have dumb or unimaginative plots without attaching a political meme to the reasoning behind why we dislike a movie.

I just think people seem to be obsessed with SJW hysteria and far too often use it to explain anything and everything bad about a movie. It's sad that we as people seem to have to compartmentalize everything using a political prism to view life through.

I was trying to think of a way to phrase that, but you hit it.

Couldn't agree more.

The Old Republic's story is still pretty bad. The class stories are awesome, but the overall plot is just terrible. I'd kill to have Chris Avellone's version of the story after the incredible work he did with KOTOR 2.

Such wasted potential.

Agree to disagree, the overall story is pretty damn good.
