Go read up the Hall Hood [lead writer] interview.

No, the dudes in the SW story weren't lying [at the time], Bioware just retroactively changed the continuity to make it simpler.
I think until we get it cleared up in game itself, it's up in the air. I also think that there are already a number of threads about this very subject.

But even if you don't count the very last part of the character story, there are a lot of failures that the Knight really should realistically catch more flak over than they do.

So I dunno. They're as strong as the other player characters, and whatever the act 3 boss IS for the Knight, they're still hecka strong, but I'm really not sure about ranking the Knight up that high in the list of power and influence.

Instead I'm saying that if you think about it, while the Knight has accomplished a lot, they tend to fail at their assigned missions.

How is the Knight not considered a major screw up in the story? Or is that what's going on, does the Council keep giving the Knight these hard missions hoping that they'll get their act together and redeem all their past failures? And if so, what's going to happen when they find out the Sith Emperor is still out there?

You are looking at it from the wrong perspective.

Ah, then everyone just has REALLY LOW standards for the Knight. Maybe between lightsaber training they were stuck on kitchen staff duty and kept accidentally burning everyone's food. Maybe also that's why the Knight didn't really have a master until one of them kind of stumbled into the role.

Pretty sure heads would roll, starting with yours.

The other stuff is just icing on the fail cake. That debacle BAKED the cake with a giant scary laser over a few hours time.

IMO:

1) Jedi Consular/Sith Inquisitor

Both are members of their respective councils, both have raised armies loyal to them, both have multiple apprentices (remember the Consular picks up a Voss mystic as an apprentice of sorts). Both of those classes knowledge of the force exceeds the other force using classes which focus more on martial skills.

2) Sith Warrior/Jedi Knight

Mostly for physical prowess, neither has much political power. The Wrath of the Emperor is mostly an errand boy for a force ghost and the Knight is just a random Master who leads the Jedi on the field.

3) Smuggler

At the end of the story, the Smuggler is a an honest to goodness crimelord with an organization of lowlifes, hoodlums and rapscallions at his disposal.

4) The rest

The smuggler prefers the term "scruffy pirate" over "crime lord" for legally defensible reasons, and would like to add that they haven't smuggled or pirated and these papers for that cargo are completely legitimate.

1 JK - only person capable of resisting the emperor's mind control. Comes in to a game of catch up when the enemy is about ten years ahead and only loses one planet, this is not a screw up as some have implied nor a well that is the best we can expect result. Face it before any of the others would have even come close Tython and the Jedi would have been toast or if you reverse the plot for the imps Kaas and the council would have been toast. The rest falls under the first part of my opinion he is the only one who could defeat the emperor regardless of body.
2 Consular - Capable of shielding the Jedi against control of others and still being a bad*** in the force. Creates an army that crushes the imps and the children at every turn.
3 Inquisitor - Gains power by binding ghost and becomes a member of the council.
4 SW - Beats a pretender to the throne and becomes the Wrath after the previous one betrays the empire.

Actually Kira resisted too. Which is especially impressive because she'd been conditioned to have reduced resistance for years.

As for only a planet, how about if it was only Los Angeles? Boston? New York? London? Bei Jing? Colossal screw up. Tython doesn't exactly make up for what was lost.

True Kira resist when she is halfway across the galaxy, but I am talking in the emperors presence something the game itself establishes

. As for your second question if any of the came after years of planning by the enemy and you came in to the picture just before any of these attacks were to take place and you had to clear 5 or 6 other attacks, all of which you do stop then no it would not be a colossal screw up as long as you stop it from happening again. All of which you do in the game. If anything were to be a colossal screw up it would be that with all the advantages Angral has he still fails to destroy more than one small planet, More in lines of a test run like Omaha, Denver, Yorkshire, or Shanghai.
