I thought the ending fit the story perfectly. The warrior ends up above the Dark Council, second only to the Emperor. I don't see how "going and fighting the Republic" would improve on that. And if you bother to go to Ilum and do the quest line there, you will get the chance to threaten and even Force choke (with no Dark side points) a Moff in true Vader fashion.

As far as what the Jedi killed, way to not use the spoiler tag, but we don't really know if The Hand was telling the truth or not. Just because Baras said something doesn't mean that it's automatically a lie.
CE VIP Remember when this was a big deal?

As far as Kotor goes apprentices were sent into the tombs as a form of their final trial. There they would find the lightsaber that would be theirs if they could have it. A sith apprentices lightsaber represents the fact that he had the power and cunning to overcome dangers of the tombs to retrieve their lightsaber.

As for the inquisitor, you could argue that Zash felt the inquisitor met all those things and thus deserved his lightsaber

Warrior does not end up above Dark Council.

I think that's probably the best synopsis of the story. it doesn't have the amazing twists and turns of some of the others (though i was sort of shocked by the turn of events with bara in ch.2, for some reason I didn't see it coming).

I think the big part of what people like is the character interaction between baras and the hero, as well as the hero and the companions. My juggernaut has some of the most memorable companion development IMO in the whole game (though I'm really enjoying my smugglers crew so far). it's that, and the baras conflict, and the smooth storyline.

with the exception of end of book 1, it felt very "rushed" to me. I would have enjoyed more direct interaction with jaesa so I could see the effects of the doubt on her, and see how it was slowly pulling her away from her old master. It would have felt much more like the conflict between luke and vader. instead we get a much of "just missed her"! then at the very end she just seems to tumble down with in a few minutes. but thats my only gripe, love the rest.

Sith Warrior story was great right up until the end; and then it completely sucks. I don't know of anyone that didn't feel slightly confused and wondering 'wait, that was it?'
I had a signature. It was right - but now it's just a kick in the booty, so there's no need.

But the Warrior's not one of the Emperor's Hand.
Ultimately, the Warrior is not underneath the Dark Council, but he's not really above them, either. The Council can't control him, but at the same time, they have the authority, and he doesn't.
