Somewhat of a rant, people always cite dumbing down and adding features like omg hyper run speed at lvl 1 because running is too tedious, like the should be added because "I play games to have fun." Ya, well - games also have rules to be fun.

I think the three-point line in basketball should only be 3 feet from the basket and the baskets themselves should only be 10 feet apart because it's too tedious to run back and forth on the court. And 10-foot high baskets are biased against short people, lower them to 2 feet please. Just say no to making everything stupid simple!
seriously, what would you do if you, by a big unlucky momment, killed your companion and then had to restart all the char just to have him back ?

the main problem is: ppl going dark side tries to get dark side points at each dialogue, if it says "kill him" and the other 2 options give light side points... we feel bad about not chosing to kill him...

I thought that they had that system where you could kill your companion but then replace them with a droid.

Right. Because in the movies R2-D2 never had any quests for Luke!

It may not have been solely cause of people regretting it either. Since companions can be a very integral part to one's story, it may have actually caused issues with the game too.

Personally, I could care less if the option was in or not, but always wondered why someone would purposly gimp themselves.

Sith Lord "Wookie steak"
Sith Apprentice "Is it any good?"
Sith Master "It's a little chewy" .
