I'm not saying the should or shouldn't. Just that, of all the classes, the Consular did get that whole healing rep

I'd give up all those non class non story related companions, to have just the story and the more important class companions back.

I know there are some Yuun fans out there, but he'd be one of those non important class companions
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

If there's one thing that always confused me, it was the decision for Yunn to be the gateway companion for the whole alliance alert system. I mean, you had much more popular non-basic speaking companions on hand. Yunn isn't heavily dis-liked or liked, he's just noted as existing.
It's not that you disagree, it's how you disagree
You're a white knight if you like Bioware, you're a whiner if you hate them, you're a scummy fence sitter if you're in the middle.

Arcann sort of got off easy, Valk just manipulated into a rage filled kid with daddy issues, but he flat out broke Vaylin. I do hope they expand on her lingering spirit and I hope we give her closure.

But in all likelihood we'll probably just switch gears towards Malgus.
Props to Vaylin's voice actress there. You could hear the painful horror in her voice when she thought she was going to die there. Between that and her facial expressions I, for the first time since we were introduced to her, actually felt sympathy for her.

Valkorion consumed her spirit, so when he died, she rested, too. I find it strange when ppl feel zero sympathy for these abused children. Arcann's mind could be healed. While Vaylin is different, she could have been healed, too. It's just bad writing we never even get the chance to try.
Why did the SW start with Episode IV?
Because the director Yoda was

She's probably moved on the be one with the force now that her (entirely justified) daddy issues are dealt with.
That being said, damm was it satisfiying to see Valkorion being finally brought low with the help of at least some of the people whose life he ruined.

I don't think there is anything the writers could do to justify her becoming an ally, unless she had been written differently much earlier. (as in not batsh-t crazy)

Vaylin refusing to surrender and embrace the light side like Arcann, also felt completely in-character. Some characters should be irredeemable.
She was dragging around a droid torso/head for part of it. OMG I laughed so hard every time I saw her dragging that droid body.

The fact that he is neither liked or disliked by a majority of players is probably exactly why they choose him. Since all the popular companions usually also have a huge "Why can't I kill that annoying b*tch/a*s already" crowd who might just decide to not recruit said popular companion and therefore miss out on all the alerts out of spite (or recruit her/him and then whine about having to recruit her/him in order to do alerts endlessly).
With Yuun everyone was basically all like: "Who? Oh that one weird Trooper follower. I don't care about that one at all but maybe I'll get an alert for [insert favorite companion here] later if I recruit him. Fair enough."

Yeah. I enjoyed the story but this is one thing I hated. Vaylin suffered far worse abuse than Arcann but she's too 'broken' and undeserving of any redemption attempts. Now, Arcann (who killed more people than Vaylin did...how many planets did he destroy? Seems like he did a lot of damage in five years) , yeah he gets a full redemption path since mommy sacrifices herself for him.

Even when Vaylin dies, she's not even free of Valkorian's control. I thought the scene where her ghost tried to break his control but he forced her to fight you was sickening...at least we could free her ghost and kill Valk but eh...
