The way I look at it you are playing an evil side character so you should have some twisted options, especially if you are Sith. Murder, deception, etc. are all part of your job description. If a Repulic Trooper can threaten to kill children to get some mission objectives done than a Sith or Imp character should be able to be as evil as you want them to be. Honestly I wish you had more "kill" options on both sides for some NPCs. I didn't really get why I was able to gun down a couple of Imp officers and then when I get to Nar Shadda I couldn't kill the guy playing "faceoff" with the Republic soldiers.

Personally, I think you should be able to kill any or all of your companions. Of course, you'd never be able to use them for anything again. They'd be dead. The whole consequences thing. Kill enough, and you're one man against the galaxy with nobody to guard your back.

And kill enough, and what's left of your crew will probably desert...

Just a rumor, a twisted rumor. =/
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Well I guess that makes sense. Killing Quinn is enough.

I know the JK could kill Scourge, but who were the options for each Class?
Typhojem Legacy, Jung Ma server
VICIOUS
Lord of Corruption

Isn't that why they removed the ability to kill off/abandon companions in the first place? Because people would do it then turn around and go, "Oh my God! I have no companions! Bioware, how could you let me do this! Give them back!" .

Actually, I believe in an interview with a Bioware employee, they said exactly that.

They found the playtesters, when given the opportunity to kill their companions, would take them, if just to see what happened. And then suddenly they had, and now they had no healer.

That's fine in an offline game like KOTOR, where you can just reload the last save if you gakk up too severely, but in an MMO? It basically meant that, via dialogue choices, you could permanently and significantly cripple your character's ability to progress, and diminish your gameplay experience. Nothing else in the game has that permanence. Don't like you alignment? Grind diplomacy. Specced wrong? Respec. Dump Quin out an airlock?... well, have fun with that...

The only way to make that work would be to allow you to 'draw and discard' companions, so you could replace ones you lost from an available pool. But that would hugely complicate the system, and make it tough to balance, and doesn't address the issue of lost forever companion questlines, as well as require a huge amount of recorded lines.

So, it was easier to just avoid the issue, and not indulge our jerkass impulses to this degree.

Kaliyo needs to die... Like right now...
Skadge is a very annoying thug with almost no brainpower whatsoever...
Spoiler

Qyzen is annoying as hell for me to max out, has almost no Gift affection, and is almost useless except he's your only tank option until Iresso if Soloing.
Ashara is a whiny B**** and I would sooner be rolling around with Nadia on my Inquisitor than I would honestly considering spending much more time with her...
Everyone else is all right, even Quinn for betraying me, I understand at least partly why he did it.

Also, this is now a HATE ON ME thread, because Vette was actually my second favorite romance out of every class, she was assertive when she wanted something, but not ridiculously controlling about it.
The Estimare Legacy
Silence to Evil is Compliance, Arguing and Fighting is Defiance, and I am as baneful an opponent as I am loyal a companion.
We, the roleplayers, need this.

Yeah. So? It's their own fault, and if they don't like it, they need to either re-roll and not do it again, or learn to use a new companion. You know what? Actions have consequences.

Except in TOR.

I just could not see my SW going after Vette romantically, honestly if I could have gotten more conversation options out of her I would have left the shock collar on...so much more fun turning Jaessa to the dark side and pissing off the Jedi Council by marrying her.

unlike you I like her, she seems to be the only female love interest with intact flower, shes innocent with a certain moral blockades - funny to watch her forming bad opinions about my artistic lightsaber voyages.
Seriously, go seek help.

And the fact that the one of the only things you like about her is the fact she's a virgin, and you find her morals funny, makes that whole thing much worse.
