Was anyone else disappointed with the character resolutions in the Revan novel?
Spoiler


I'm 50/50 on that book. What do you think?

If by "see the resolution of the story", you mean Revan's fate after the novel... It's not exclusive to one class in the slightest. He is the focus of two flashpoints, which all classes can attend. (Note; Republic gets the first, and Empire the second. Empire gets the "full" ending.)

But yes, I am awfully disappointed in what happened to the poor, poor Exile. So much for being a master-tactician.

You can't really hate Scourge for making that choice.

He saw a vast array of possible outcomes and chose the best of the bunch. Read those pages again if you still dislike him. If he had gone along with the initial plan, all of them would be dead.

Oh I remember reading that part, sure....

But you're interpreting Scourge's visions just like he was.... that they were absolutely certain. Revan told him, just like Yoda to Luke "Always in motion, the future is."

There was no absolute way of knowing if Scourge was seeing the absolute future. He felt that he knew all possible outcomes, I don't think that a dark sider would be THAT attuned to the force. Even Scourge commented (on some page in the book I don't remember) that there was no use for dark side prophets, because most dark siders were consumed by their anger, hatred, etc.

I just think Scourge was having a brush with BOTH sides of the force, saw the potential for its use, and then like all true dark siders, felt.... "hey, I instantly got this future vision thing down!"
On it... done!

I was feeling extremely empty after reading about how it ends for Revan and Meetra. It feels like I had been hoping a long time for some story book happy ending, but the one we got just... leaves a void. It's like you've lost a friend somehow, because I really did love both KotOR games. Probably getting a bit nerdy at this point, but keeping it at such an abrupt end just doesn't seem just.

For me, I liked it. The whole Ordo section gave me a nice little insight into that clan.

The overall ending? Well, it could have been handled better mayhaps, but I am happy with it anyway.

My Revan was the female *me* Revan, so this male/canonical can get what comes to him :P
