Please gentledevs, stop making this look like 60's avant-garde fashion on steroids

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AA4qGc2z-rs

Or some late 60's B Sci-Fi B film

Please, can't we look a bit like this?

While the Jedi stand better on this than the Sith, there are no robes as fantastic as the most iconic robes from the most iconic Jedi, Sir Alec Guinness Kenobi.


Also, all those oh-so-seventies looks from the original trilogy, specially the first film. More inspiration from them, svp!

Um, for the record, I support the inclusion of ...whatever the thing at 1.08mins is supposed to be for my female toons.

To clear up, he probably meant 1:08 of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ojaofcXmS8

I was watching this wonderful Peggy Moffitt video (ehrm, for fashion research purposes, of course) and mislinked. When he quoted I had already fixed the link.

Now I don't find all the sets terrible, in fact most of the armor sets I think are great , but there is something missing yes. For those wanting simple robes for example there is very little if anything to choose from, and I feel there's a certain lack in something iconic, something that is worth to remember.

I also don't find it particularly wholesome where we're headed, say hello to Sith inquisitor peacocks

There are some options out there that look like the classic characters. Supreme Inquisitor's Robe, for example. Plenty of plain brown looking robes for Sages.

Honestly, I think they have done a much better job designing armor looks of late. A lot of the cartel gear looks really good. You have so many options now. I've played since pre-launch, and the options at end game before you could switch mods out were just awful. The tiered gear on most classes looks terrible. But now that you can move mods into whatever look you like, and there are so many options available both in class-specific gear and adaptive gear, I don't think these complaints are valid anymore.

Well, Supreme Inquisitor is the closest Inquisitor to the 'iconic Star Wars look'. But still a bit far, that belted up suit, with short sleeves, some weird prints and the leathery feel is not really anything like, say, Sidious' looks in RoTJ.

Sages are quite fine indeed, just need some long-sleeved options

and also, I agree, it's time simpler robes were introduced. However, having seen the new armor that's supposed to be part of RotHC, I'm not going to hold my breath. Bioware seems to think that the more we look like we just walked out of the swamp or just starred in a 60s B-movie the better. Artists and their weirdness

Awh! But we took our inspirations from the movies! Look: http://images.mmorpg.com/images/gall...6eb6e76c91.jpg It looks even better because we added so much from ourselves!
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

I support this plea. No more funky outfits.
