Not the most difficult thing in the world to have implement IMO and quite frankly having to artificially be a jerk or a goodie two shoes just for "points" so I can get X gear is a major turnoff.

Really very little excuse for a KotOR game not to have this incorporated at launch and the irritating thing is that this was a conscious design decision. Not particularly time intensive.

Umm....huh?

First of all, there are items already with DS/LS requirements throughout the leveling process, unless you are trying to say something totally different than what I read into this.

Secondly, absolutely none of those items are game influencing in any way, shape or form. There is ZERO need to make any DS/LS choices in game other than what you wish your character to do, at least as far as capability goes. There's a couple of fluff items once you geet to certain levels on each side but, if you are worried about the 'need' to make choices against your 'character' because you want to buy a mini-pet, then clearly character isn't really that important after all.

In my opinion, morality should never have a point system and always be full of gray areas. And Force shades should never be directly tied to morality.

I feel that deeper, darker emotions are necessary for somebody to truly understand empathy and compassion. If a Jedi never feels the pain of loss and despair, and all the emotions that come with it, they lose sight of what they're fighting for.

Any plans to bring this into the game?

Just something to read if your interested and would like to know more.

All the relics / weapons that are tied to alignment are worthless, you can craft better stuff..... not to mention the stuff that drops in HM Flashpoints / Operations are superior also.... So yes you can play as a grey Jedi.... Even the Bike you buy at the alignment vendor can be had on Voss with no alignment requirements... Given it's not white or black like the alignment speeders are but it's the same model just brownish...

Pretty old swtor question. You wouldve missed it if you werent on forums back in Dec of last yr but yeah people asked and asked back then. Folks were disappointed that if you dont go mostly one way or the other you miss out on items. As you can see nothings changed since then. Cant say it wont but if 11 or so months isnt enough time then. Well i dunno.

Even though i just got back after quitting in jan, its interesting to see the same questions and concerns that were brought up a little after launch back again. Its just that now the discussions are a whole lot lighter because of the lack of subscribers.

No, it's a dead horse that some people are still beating because they haven't joined the rest of us who got to 50 and realized it's a non-issue.
...they'd never come to see me in this dive, where bikers stare at cowboys, who are laughing at the hippies, who are praying they'll get out of here alive...

The items that have a light/dark restriction are never that good, so it's not really a punishment to anyone (except people who refuse to rip out mods).
