I also wish the fat guy wasn't always the bad guy or the comic relief but that's another discussion.
One dimensional villain , not too deep? U are either trolling or havent played Sith Warrior's story past lvl 10...


Darth Baras is prob one of the best characters on Empire side in SWTOR

He managed to trap the Emperor, plant spies in both Empire and Republic that worked for him for decades , plant double agents , trap Emperor's lover and managed to steal visions from her to work his goal , ruin and kill his master aka the feared Minister of War who opposed almost everyone when Treaty of Coruscant was signed(testament of his power) , elevate himself to become Voice of Emperor while blackmailing/influencing other members of Dark Council to support him + his sister was the best assassin Empire ever had

And lets add that BioWare implanted a tribute to Darth Vader in him which u can encounter during Hoth class mission where he says something along these lines "U failed me for the last time" proceeds to choke Imperial officer over holo and hands command to next one in line (sounds familiar?)

Only reason why Baras didnt succeed in his plans was because BioWare wrote the story of us players taking him down and thats prob the only flaw in that story.

I like him and Lord Zash a lot. Awesome characters, awesome backstory, awesome storyline, awesome voice acting.

I liked the voice acting. I'm a little confused at the fat arguments, because, like I mentioned in another topic, the fat build that SWTOR has is a powerfully built fat dude. I mean, he's clearly got some decent musculature to go with all that fat. Imagine that weight pressing down on you with dramatically crossed lightsabers...

I heard about this yet my Inquisitor would still bed her given the chance just as long as she doesn't reveal her true self while my sith is in her.

If I had to pick a favored Darth on looks alone. It be Darth Malgus. He's just sexy.

Read the Threat of Peace webcomic under the Media section. He is basicly the main Sith character in the story, although it doesn't explain how he put on about twenty stone in the time between the comic and game.

Same way Darth Thanaton changed from the powerful young sith in his webcomic to a miserly old man
