But yes, I am awfully disappointed in what happened to the poor, poor Exile. So much for being a master-tactician.
I'm playing the game as a single player game (the only time I'm grouping with anyone is when I'm waiting for a quest mob to respawn, and they invite me - I'm not going to be a dick and make them wait for the respawn, and I leave group as soon as the mob dies). So, is it in a Flashpoint that I'll be able to easily solo when I hit L50 and go back to do Flashpoints? If not, could you spoil me as to what is revealed, or at least tell me what Flashpoints are involved so I can go look it up?

Skatehead said it best, I think. After the two KotOR games and putting my heart and soul into Revan and the Exile, they felt like friends to me, or at least people I cared about deeply. Finding out their fate was heartbreaking, even though I knew it had to end badly because the Emperor is obviously still alive, and Revan and the Exile never returned.

Agreed. First thing I thought when I heard Taris was the Promised Land, and then I find the holocrons and I'm like, Dude, what the hell!?

I agree. I haven't felt that sad and "empty", as the OP very accurately put it, after reading a book, well, I don't think ever. That being said, I don't read a ton anymore, but still, after investing most of my young adolescence to KOTOR 1 and KOTOR 2, I was definitely really saddened by the fate of all of my favorite characters. Bastila's fate really saddened me. That final scene with her in KOTOR 1 when you finally convince her to recognize that she loves you was a very touching scene, in my opinion. I'm a dude but I'm kind of a big softie when romances are done well, and I loved the Revan/Bastila romance (I happen to think it is possibly the best romance in any video game I've ever played ever)...so to see it end in that manner was incredibly disappointing. And yeah, the way that the exile got killed from behind...such a crappy way for such an awesome character to go.

I also thought that the book at times felt too rushed, particularly towards the beginning. I mean I just like flew right through the parts where Revan was at home...It would have been nice to see a couple of small scenes of him doing things around home aside from talking with Canderous in shady places and having incredibly short conversations with his wife. I love the social aspect of RPG games and I think the book didn't do that part of rpg games enough justice--I felt like the book just rushed through all of the best social scenes so that it could just get to the combat and dark parts...which I think is cool, but it's a book, not a movie. If it had been a movie, where audiences start to get really antsy after say, 2 or 3 hours, I'd understand the rush. But I think that had the author stretched out the social scenes in the beginning of the book, the middle of the book, and the ending of the book, I think that the action-packed and dramatic scenes would have felt that much more "important" since we would have been more socially invested in Revan and the characters whom he affects.

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.
Would probably be dead*

They both would've gotten a better fate if this mmo wasn't on the drawing board.

Note: I really like this game, but I loved kotor

The Book is borderline. Revan's involvement in ths MMO? is a travesty of era destroying Cluster-F's. unforgivable.

To mirror other posters here, The Characters we loved for so long deserved a far better send off.

Need more inter-faction interaction! Come on, its an MMO!

This book was only made to show why both of the charaters are so imporatnt in TOR so we all didnt go *** why are they all alive god ect ect this way most of the fan base can understand why both of them are still kicking and why it is the jedi knight is the most important class >>
There is no Dark their is no light There is no grey There is only you.the force does not corrupt you, you corrupt yourself
Your actions shape you, the force simply reveals your true nature,One does not die, the force embraces you

And then she went and spoilt it all by saying something stupid like 'i'm mind wiping you'...
