If anything, I thought that there is no more stupid thing in SWTOR than default "light side" story of Eternal Empire - after the very first completion by my Warrior. But now I've just completed it on a full dark side route by my Sorcerer and...

My reaction to the final cutscene on Odessen

Ffffff u c***kk this mother****ing THRONE on the base of some hobos with guns in the wilds - I don't need to be graduated to see how pathetic losers who developed it, tried their best to pull this bulls**t off, because they obviously didn't have any resources to make a command center on TWO planets, and so even THE F**KING EMPEROR must sit on a godforsaken Odessen.

But I'll try to play mental gymnastics and suppose for a second that all of this make sense. So how do we explain The Chair? There are only two options.

1. The rebels just literally sawed off the Throne of the Spire with chainsaws and TRANSPORTED it to ODESSEN with all attached communications so this s hit could be implemented at all. I can imagine the cost of all those operations.
2. They RECREATED the Throne, made a cheap chinese copy of it specially for A BASE OF HOBOS ON ODESSEN, because they all have a zero taste of a dirty peasant and don't know how aesthetics and symbols work, what a harmony is.

I don't know which of those two is more stupid and senseless.
I mean, this kinda fits my Sorcerer, who was a slave scum, so he is by default not the brightest star on the sky and tasteless like a stereotypical gipsy baron, so this glorious first "reform" of his is sorta expected. But we have other 8 classes, so I throw away the idea for a possible subtle comedy gold of devs. No, it's just a godawful design. It's stupid, it's moronic, it makes zero *********** sense.

Also I can't stop thinking about the title of our protagonist.
He is still "the Commander" - a paramilitary hobo chimp in the wilds and treated like this by all others. Yet he also from now on is the Emperor by all means...
So his full title is now what? The Emperor Commander?.. The Commander Emperor?... The Immortal Commander?.. The Eternal Commander?

ehhhehehahahaahhaha

Fffffff***ck this is THE IMPERIAL EMPEROR OF THE EMPIRE LORMAN level of stupid dumbf**k bulls**t but it's like absolutely serious now.

The writing from 3.0 and onwards reminds me of Mass Effect 3 with its brilliant endings like "shoot the pipe, hug the pipe, f**k the pipe gimme a lazor beam". You just can't start believe this all is real even if you see it with your own eyes.

All of this, because you also have a throne on Odessen? Honestly get over it. We got it, you hate the Zakuul storyline. But about now people are over that and focusing on the next storyline. Making a wall of text because the throne was on Odessen just seems ridiculous, honestly.

You're missing the point: it's not about The "Throne" itself, but about what it represents - the pinnacle of developers impotency. They couldn't make two bases of operations - they couldn't make a one single room on Zakuul with duplicates of all protagonist's crew, so any player who chose to be The Emperor wouldn't feel his choices nullified - at least right after completion of addons. This is the ultimate "f**k u", the biggest spit on the face of players: your whole goal to complete the story of two addons was narrated by Valkorion himself many times - to take The Eternal Throne, to become The Dragon of glass and shiny Zakuul, The Jewel of the Galaxy, not Odessen. Aaaaaaand... AND F**K U BIG, PLAYER, HERE YOUR *********** PLASTIC THRONE - SPECIALLY DELIEVERED SO YOU CAN RULE FROM YOUR STUPID REBEL BASE ON ODESSEN, KEWL, HA? and by the way you are still Commander, sorry (no) about that

Wow, my choices are truly matter, don't you agree, Twi'lek? I'm astonished by this marvelous plot which ****s up by itself the whole its suspense and meaning. I thought back then that this game can't surprise me more, but o boi, how wrong I was.

**** THAT
I was not asking about real ruling, I was not demanding any real Emperor's power - that would be too difficult for devs with their resources and skills to pull off.
BUT ONE SINGLE ROOM WITH A SHORT CUTSCENE, A DECORATIVE ELEMENT WITHOUT GAMEPLAY
So I could just walk in it and see the results of all my work
Was it really that hard, can you, at least, say to me, huh?!
Why devs had resources to make a stupid cutscene with a pirate comp Adronikos, but hadn't for THE CULMINATION of your KOTFEET playthrough, huh?

The biggest choice and the finale of two biggest addons has ultimately ZERO consequences.

Yep, looking at the OP's comments and half of it is unintelligable, but the half i can make out is like "huh?". You got a throne to sit on and command from, what more do you want? (rhetorical question)
