(1) It's also worth noting that Influence doesn't directly boost your companions. Instead, it boosts your character's Presence score when adventuring with that companion.
Oh thanks, I didn't know this. I've been away from the game for about 4 years and wanted to start a character from scratch, relearn the game but also just do the planetary and class quests and not all the side quests so I did the level 70 boost. I'm not a hardcore player, don't really care about fights, I'm just a Star Wars fan and want more of an interactive story.

Last night I finished KotET and it was pretty epic. I had to hit escape several times just to replay that last scene. Wow. Just wow.

BTW, the Gemini fight is the only one that's ever given me trouble. I had no issue with the Valynn fight (leading her into the green circles) or really any other fight after that.

Be as nearby as possible. Worked for me even tho I played as IA. Also having a deprogrammed skytrooper with you helps a lot.

I finally said **** it and used a healing comp, and beat it with no problem.
even with a gosh darn healing companion it's impossible 'cause senja is *********** useless

DId you rank up her Influence? Have you accounted for the currently-bugged companion behaviour?(1)

(1) It affects ranged companions more than melee companions, but there are secondary effects on them as well.

Which difficulty are you playing on? Which class and spec do you play?

Been a while, but if I recall correctly you need to get the hell out of her cleave asap and there was some cast you could interrupt.

this is the worst boss battle ive ever seen in a video game. nothing i do works and i have no idea what to do expect to just leave and go back to the base game story missions because the devs seem to have designed this boss battle to just piss people off

i reprogrammed a sky trooper before the boss battle, once i got into the fight, the game decided that was unfair and got rid of the sky trooper. he just disappeared completely and the emp grenades are worthless as a twig. this seems to be one rigged boss battle, as i have found no environmental factors to attack to make the boss spaz out like in some other boss battles

Carefully check to make sure you aren't playing the chapter on Veteran or Master mode at that point. The fight is far far far from rigged, but on Veteran or, worse, Master, it's way harder, like all fights in KotFE and KotET, than it is on Story.

Check your gear. Look top-left in the Character panel ("C") to see what your Item Rating is. (This is the equivalent of "gear score" that some other MMORPGs have. Try to have it significantly above 200, and for preference at 230 or more.) Make sure all your gear is correctly matched to your selected Discipline. Do not use equipment that has the stats "Defense", "Absorb" or "Shield" unless you are in a tank Discipline. Use your character's abilities correctly. Go into the Disciplines panel ("K") and make sure you've selected suitable "utilities". Er. Read the tooltops that explain what they do. Um. Make sure you've actually selected a Discipline.

For the fight itself, well, she'll bat you around from time to time, but don't let that worry you. If she splits into four(1), hit them in sequence. Three are decoys and will disappear individually when hit, and the fourth is the real one, and will make *all* the decoys disappear.

Other than that, just hit her until she falls over.

Apart from that, I can't really help you because you haven't explained what's actually happening, and I've never, ever had this kind of difficulty, although I've never tried this in Veteran or Master.

(1) "If" rather than "when" because although she's *supposed* to split like that, in poorly-defined circumstances it won't happen.
