It was rushed and half baked again just my experience with the game. Though the battle mechanics were much improved so at least i was able to breeze through the 3 or 4 times i played it to see where the heck i missed everything was (awnser was it wasnt put in the game so i couldnt find it) which of course was frustrating as hell for me.
I can't pretend I cared much for the Exile, however only because I imprinted my own personality on him/her - what's great about KOTOR II is the characters around you, and how you interact with them. Who the Exile is is whoever you want him/her to be. You did not get so much freedom with Revan who was either a redeemed Jedi hero or a Sith Lord reclaiming his destiny. But in the end its all a matter of opinion.

Nope, Surik went one way, Revan went his way(Kavar left him half-way through) and Alek/Karath went their way.

They pooled their forces at Malachor V, Surik arrived first after taking Dxun, then the other two arrived.

The KotOR CG has little snippets here and there of the more significant events through the war, even the Mandalorian campaign gets some exposition.

But if the Exile was aware that Revan and Malak had fallen to the dark side, why would she aid then at the Battle of Malachor?

And since when did Kavar fight in the Mandalorian Wars? Wouldn't that completely invalidate his position when judging the Exile with the rest of the Jedi Council?

Well they didn't have much choice, if the Mandalorians were going to get beaten it would take all of them, plus they weren't totally gone she could just sense their fall.

He was already a part of the war before the Revanchists joined the war effort, Kavar fought in many of the skirmishes, when the Jedi Order officially declared it's neutrality he still remained by Revan's side hoping to keep him on the Jedi path but half way through he left, he knew Revan was getting colder and that the war had gone far beyond the hope of diplomacy so he went back.

Well, maybe Kavar should have kept his trap shut during the Exile's trial. More Jedi hypocrisy...

Next time Kavar destroys a planet and Sacrafices thousands of Republic forces and Jedi... Let me know.

I like the Exile btw, she's one of my favourite Characters... Something about her Tragic story, and the way she Inspired her companions.... I love her character
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.

Regardless of what he did, he still disobeyed the orders of the very Council he sits on. And they didn't persecute him? What kind of Order is this? Well at least they got what was coming to them... just like the PT Order.

Well IIRC, they forgave his disobedience and understood the logic behind it, imagine if Kavar had managed to keep Revan on the path of the Light, how different could things have been perhaps..

As far as what kind of order goes, the Jedi Order had some seriously grave injuries dealt to it by the Great Sith War, then the Sunriders died out(though that is a big matter for debate) just before the onset of the Mandalorian Wars, basically the Jedi Order after the Great Sith War paled in comparison to the one beforehand.

I find your lack of understanding disturbing.

1)Jedi or Sith?
Jedi, though if I lived during one of the Order's highly centralized periods I would likely chafe under its strict rules and supervision. I imagine I would end up leaving the Order, at least for a time, to interact with other Force-based sects - such as the Aing-Tii, the Jensaarai, and the Zeison Sha.

2) Favorite Worlds?
In-universe: Mon Calamari; Corellia; Onderon.
In-game: Balmorra; Tython.

3) Type of lightsaber, Lightsaber color and fighting style?
Form V seems like the most sensible to me, particularly if I could become adept in both variants. Shien would be useful when facing blaster-armed opponents, and I could switch to Djem So for lightsaber-wielding foes. I would use a single-bladed, dual-phaser lightsaber with a white color crystal.

4)Favorite Species?
Wookiees; Mon Calamari; Chiss.

5)Favorite vehicle?
If we're including starships, I'd say the Ebon Hawk, the Outrider, or an X-Wing starfighter. If we're only including planet-based vehicles, then either the Snowspeeder or the Basilisk war droid.

6)If you were a Jedi which master would you want?
There are numerous possibilities that come to mind here: Nomi Sunrider; Arren "Kreia" Kae; Meetra Surik; Orgus Din; Satele Shan; K'Kruhk; Qui-Gon Jinn; Corran Horn; Kyle Katarn; Mara Jade Skywalker.

7)If you were a Sith which master would you want?
Kel'eth Ur; Revan; Darth Gravid; Darth Vectivus.

8)If you were a Sith, then what would your "Darth" Name Be?
Darth Letum.

9)Favorite Film?
Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

10)Least favorite film?
This alternates between Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

11)If you could write your own Star Wars novel, what would it be about?
There are two thoughts that come to mind.
1) A novel focused on the life and times of Meetra Surik, ending with her return from exile at the beginning of K2: The Sith Lords.
2) A novel depicting the inner workings of either the prequel-era Old Republic; the pre-NJO New Republic; or the post-NJO Galactic Alliance. Naturally, this would be a politically-focused story.

12)Which film has your favorite soundtrack?
This is a toss-up between Episode II: Attack of the Clones for "Duel of the Fates," and Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back for "Imperial March."

13)Do you collect figures?
No.

14)In your opinion, what is the best thing about the EU?
Matthew Stover; Timothy Zahn; Michael Stackpole; Aaron Allston. The freedom to explore and expand on ideas, concepts, characters, and events that were only referenced in the movies because they peripheral to the stories in those movies. The ability to expand the universe beyond the movies.

15)In your opinion, what are the worst things about the EU?
Troy Denning post-NJO; Christie Golden. The tendency to make Luke's New Jedi Order function and think more and more like the Old Order. The decision to retcon Vergere into a Sith, and the accompanying decision to have Jacen Solo fall to the Dark Side. Nearly everything post-NJO, really (excepting Paul Kemp's Jaden Korr duology and Millennium Falcon, at any rate).

16)What Does Star Wars mean to you?
Adventure; hope; joy.
