I like how "I, Jedi" basicly has an entire chapter where you can basicly hear Mike Stackpole "WTFing" the entire Jedi Academy trilogy
SWTOR is not SWG. it was never intended to be at all like SWG. and having a completly differnt design philophesy then SWG will never be like SWG

the development team could also just of been given a break for the holidays. Game developers work a ridiculous amount of hours. They do get breaks from time to time.
I'm a cool dude

I predict a large swell of new players to this game once the movie comes out because of the connections that we will see.

This. My friends and I have been talking about this. When Disney takes an interest in something it means something big is about to happen. Our guess is that SWTOR (or at least parts of it) are going to be part of the new canon.
- Adevari Legacy - Ebon Hawk -
Mael'rii : Marauder [55] || Rai'kedo : Sorcerer [30]
Serru'mauw'kigu : Operative [16] || Usajo : Mercenary [28]
Omnidia : Guardian [24]

Tarkin novel mentions "A Dark Ages" of which the Republic is sprung . . . just saying

Well since Disney owns both properties, and both have the same consumer base. It seems like cross-promotion would be very likely. Easter Eggs in the movie could generate subs which makes their IP go up in value.

And yes, cascading cannon is a slippery slope and completely ridiculous. I assure you I can take everything that happens in SWTOR and link it (with your tenuous logic) to almost the entire Legends continuity at some point.

So if Kotor is cannon, then the Mandalorian wars are cannon, then the KOTOR Comics are cannon, so then Celeste Morne is Cannon, so then the Legacy Comics are cannon, so then the Fel Empire and Galactic Alliance are cannon, so the Legacy and FotJ novels are all cannon, so then the NJO and Vong are cannon, etc...

Yeah it doesn't work like that.

um.... never mind all the rest. you got a crucial detail mixed up. revan came first. bane learns the thought bomb and and force drain and many other force abilities from REVAN. specifically his holocron. bane reshaped the sith order and instituted the rule of two after learning from REVAN. ergo, you cant have bane, at least they way we know him, without REVAN.

and to make bane canon (not cannon lolz) with the history we know of intact, the thought bomb, the rule of two, all that.... to do that means revan has to be made canon. which means, yes KOTOR has to be made canon. In regards to revan, which means a lot of KOTOR becomes canon because revan is a critical part of KOTOR.

The Movies are what made star wars. Not some ******head try to make a fast buck with a typewriter. In all arguements folks go to the books. They have no basis as far as im concerned . All the other stuff is just nonsense. Either your dark or not. Put game back to what is was.. not what some abused fat kid in his moms basement wants it to be.
