Er dude I played the SI story 4 times from 1-50 both light and dark and inbetween pretty much from chapter 1-3 its the npcs giving the SI all the plans and the SI just acts upon it never coming up with anything them self heck for chapter 2-3 it was zash detailing the plans and the crew giving additional information.

Look at nar shaada the cultists where the ones giving the plans and the ideas to the SI and when it came to the super weapon guess what? It was the moff that approached the SI and gave the plan to the SI again....

I have played all the imperial story classes and guess what? Even the BH can manipulate people better than the SI and the IA? The IA puts the SI to shame when it comes to planning, manipulation, sith politics and empire politics.

The only part of the SI story I somewhat enjoyed was act 1 and then from there it just went down hill fast.

If the SI story was soo good and the SI was such a mastermind why do we have a 14 page topic talking about how bad it is? Heck I was in beta and guess what people were saying? Keep act 1 scrap the rest and do it over. Heck when it comes to the SI story I have not seen 1 topic dedicated to how good it is while all the other classes had these forms of topics.

I agree. working as a double agent rocked! Trooper Act 2 was actually kinda fun gathering up the rest of Havoc was actually fun. Act 3 of the trooper was kinda meh though. Act 1 is all buildup for act 2 and act 2 is build up for act 3.

I really enjoyed act 2 of the inquisitor. More than act 3, really, although I enjoyed the whole thing. *shrugs* Guess we don't all like the same things, huh?

Because:
a) Many gamers LOVE their player ego to be stroked by epic power and epiccccc importance and epiccccccccccccc events
b) Many players are stuck on how Bioware advertised the Inquisitor instead on the actual storyline. Again, movie trailer analogy. The trailer doesn't matter in the end, the actual movie story does.

99% posts in this thread focus on these 2 aspects. And neither is really about the actual story

Er no

Well after reading 14 whole pages this is not the case. Plus the IA story has the player character being abused far more than the SI and run down by everybody and no one talks about how leet you are yet I consider this story to be far better than the SI. Since the IA story was actually well written heck even bioware said that the IA is their favorite.

Heck almost everyone on the forum says the IA is the best and that story is not about you "being" epic or you being amazingly important. The reason why people love it since the IA(won't go into story spoilers for those who have not played it yet) story is well crafted and written well while the SI was not.

So you say it's not the case and then proceed to quote posts that talk exactly about that lol? You quote Ben and Jen who go on and on how Inquisitor is not Palapatine/Sidious. Yes, there's also the aspect of Thanaton's unconvincing motivations. But guess what, even with IA story the villain in Act 3 is not exaclty praised and many people think Act 3 and the whole conspiracy weren't really developed enough.

Then why they complain about that in SI story huh? Obviously because to many people the Sith fantasy is taking over the galaxy rather than more small, personal stories. Exaggerating of course but you get the point.

I always had the impression that Thanaton feared the player character so much, a recent slave apprentice having killed two Lords, that he merely used the notion of "tradition" as a convenient pretense for his actions. The man was a slave himself, at one point. I think we're supposed to come off with the impression that he's a gutless hypocrite.
