I'd kill the Droid right away for being a useless **** that just keeps saying he wants to please me over and over. If I send them on a mission I want to kill them and get a replacement for failing me. How many times have I wasted like 20K cause they failed, like I don't even seem to be able to control it.

In the intro movie you see the sith killing his master for failing, should at least be able to do it ourselves.

If you kill your ship droid, there will be nobody to preform the hourly seat cushion change. Think, man. Think!

My bounty hunter is always high on fumes from ever fresher coats of paint and just keeps forgetting to deactivate 2V-R8's stupid ***.

The option to kill companions was once in the game, but it was removed based on player feedback during beta testing.

So it was removed because people are too stupid to realize that [Kill x] is a permanent choice? If I pick that option in a class quest or something, I know it's not changeable. Therefore, I also know it's not changeable if I do it to a companion. To have an interesting potentially story-changing feature removed because of a PEBKAC problem makes me sad. The article mentioned maybe carbonizing or imprisoning as options, and I'm disappointed that we didn't get those kind of options. (At least not in the situation I know about.)
