I think you're right. God dang, Chris was way better than Drew wasn't he?

I dunno. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer keeping his backstory a mystery. Once an ordinary man, turned into literally an embodiment of the dark side.
In the Imperial Army, it takes more courage to retreat than to advance.

I like Drew and his stories but they all seemed to have the same theme, Chris always changed his themes around.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

Nihilus arguably served as a dark reflection of the Exile more than anything else.

Both survived Malachor V, both cut themselves off from the Force in reaction to the pain of that world's destruction, and both effectively became a walking wound in the Force as a result. Had things gone differently for the Exile, had she made different choices or walked different paths, it could have been her behind the mask.

This is probably why his fight occurs after the Big Scene With Darth Traya (if you've played KOTOR 2 you know the one). The Jedi Council (if it survived) has already seen the Force through the eyes of the Exile, but in Nihilus you see the Exile through the eyes of the Jedi Council.

Exactly. Which is why I love the Nihilus Character, its the Dark Side of the Exile. The Dark Side of the main character is the main Villain.

Everything done with the villains of KotOR II was already done many times over in the EU beforehand, so I don't know where you got that from.

I personally would love if Bioware did something surrounding Nihilus , be it a flashpoint or maybe a comeback ?!
I wouldn't mind Scion but I was not a fan of him .

I think it is generally possible to bring back Nihilus , him and Scion were kinda made to be beyond belief Sithlords .

my dislike is not story of kotor 2 but how it portyated the sith i like the exile but not the sith she fights.


in fact i don't feel that i am fighting are sith more like fighting sauron orc army like failed attmpet to bring lotr into star wars.

the voice sith makes after you kill them + the zombie sith + the ghostly sith etc you get the ideal.

the games turns the sith into morder army.

in kotor bioware kept sith true to star wars malak is power hungry sith lord who wants to conquer the galaxy for his empire.
Sith assassin Forever!
