I find most stories written in fantasy worlds by authors often reflect signs of the time during that authors life or reflects other periods of time that include social, political, gender and/or racial situations. These topics naturally stir passion in people, so are often common themes.

Movies can have dumb or unimaginative plots without attaching a political meme to the reasoning behind why we dislike a movie.

I just think people seem to be obsessed with SJW hysteria and far too often use it to explain anything and everything bad about a movie. It's sad that we as people seem to have to compartmentalize everything using a political prism to view life through.

I was trying to think of a way to phrase that, but you hit it.

Couldn't agree more.

The Old Republic's story is still pretty bad. The class stories are awesome, but the overall plot is just terrible. I'd kill to have Chris Avellone's version of the story after the incredible work he did with KOTOR 2.

Such wasted potential.

Agree to disagree, the overall story is pretty damn good.

I still think it's horrid, but it's better than that spit in the face that was The Force Awakens, along with its sequel.

Thanks for making the OT pointless Abrams, you populist scum.

Seems like Disney agrees so the GoT creators are said to be doing Old Republic era movies. Dare we hope for a Revan trilogy?

Personally I don't get the plaudits KOTOR 2 has in some circles... After KOTOR dreamed up an era of unlimited potential... the sequel rebooted the new unvierse into the OT "last of the jedi" rehash. I mean it had quality writing and plot, but if you're talking wasted potential, KOTOR 2 should have its photo next to the dictionary definition. TOR had to jump centuries again to re-established the scenery KOTOR 2 mucked over for no reason other than lack of originality.

One can't deny Obsidian doesn't do quality work but they've seemed badly short of imagination from the get go. Even the latest project is basically just a deja-vu fiesta. It'll be better made than Fallout no doubt but come on... it's another Obsidian re-do of the already seen.

I'd rather they didn't to be honest. I have 0 faith in Disney being able to give it the love it deserves.

Have it set in that time line, with new characters and occasional references to the fan favourites though would be just the thing I think.
