He looked cool and originally didn't talk, so you're all like, whats this guy all about? Then he fell into a giant lady part with teeth and died. What more could you want from a character?

I believe this to be the norm for most people on the planet.

So when it comes time to roll pay, guess what kind of person I'm not going to role play.

When I'm role playing, I'm gonna be that ******e who doesn't give a **** about the little guy, and will only help you if I am some how getting myself a leg up.

Role playing this is fun.
I've tried that... and I've felt so guilty for my actions in Role play that I just don't do evil actions anymore. It's not for everyone. I just can't do evil without feeling bad. Even in video games. I just can't split the pretend me from the real me's morality I guess.

But more power to those that can, I'm glad you guys are having fun!
My trooper goes... Commando!

Hochachacha!!!

With how suave and strong silent type-ish he was, that was probably not the first giant lady part with teeth he fell in to.

Anyhow, in any game where alignment comes into play, I'm the sort of person that can drift back to chaotic good from evil without even thinking about it. I'm just a sucker I suppose, even when I make a decided effort to TRY to be evil. Even the Bounty Hunter I made to try out a "pay up or shut up" angle has ended up stubbornly neutral.

As for why I went Empire in the first place... I wanted a sniper. Somehow I managed to get her to Dark level 2 by level 30. I found a way to be an evil little Chiss Chica, yessir I did. Of course then I went and figured out smugglers are the IA mirror. Now I have a baby smuggler (who is being horribly neglected due to a persistent and severe case of alt-itis) that I also enjoy. I'd like to muzzle her first companion, but that's another story.

But then George had to go all backstory on him. To this day, I wish that when he picked up his father's helmet a head hell out.

Those who seek attention and post they are unsubbing are much like wailing babies wanting attention.

Lanniter Droge on Droman Kaas (quest is Black Science). When his holo started talking all I could think was "Scots in Space!" Then I got all annoyed because I couldn't find out who his voice actor is.

And for anyone who wants to hear why a Scottish accent is oh so loverly.. check this short video of my favorite Scottish voice in action.

Tell me he's voicing Republic characters and I'll go Republic before you can say lightsaber.

I knew I wasn't the only one that wished for that every time I see that scene...

Fett is popular though, but if you asked a non-star wars fan who he is they may have heard of him if they haven't forgotten.
