Just saying any good Jedi worth his salt has some kind of dramatic experience happen to him or her usually involving the death of a loved one. The aftermath of this death is usually a good point to intruduce the temptation of The Dark Side. Know I like Kira but I think it would make my JK's personal story alot better if she died in some super Dramatic way. What do you guys think?
New Gear is the ONLY type of character progression at endgame. Raiders are not the only ones who want to continue to progress their toons throughout an expansion. Im a bad bad speller.

1) I haven't romanced Kira, since I went full Light Side: my character should be able to resist any temptation of the Dark Side arisen from her loss, standing firm in the Jedi Code.
2) Some Jedi Knights hate Kira and would only say "good riddance" to her death.
3) Chapter 2 ending spoiler:

your hold on the Light is stronger just like any redeemed Jedi.

These facts imply that story-wise, the death of Kira shouldn't necessarily lead to a fall to the Dark Side, rather to many possible and different consequences (from a fall to the Dark Side to nothing at all). Many could be happy/find it interesting but many would also be angry at BioWare.
The fact that many Jedi have seen a loved one's demise doesn't mean most them must.
The way the game is structured today, I don't think it allows for Companions to be lost, "deleted".
Everything is STAR WARS is the best.

This would only work if you allowed this situation for each different class and a single of their companions. A similar situation where you could kill off one of them, however you'd have to have either a different character that would join you in replacement of that character if you kill them, or the replacement character just be a bland regular average joe with no depth, maybe even a droid.

Other than that, it would be awesome for the story to go down a little more of a dynamic route, linearity is this game's biggest hurdle.

I don't use her so I couldn't care less if she's dead.

I don't want her to die, but I would agree that someone needs to die. It makes the story more dramatic, real, and gripping. Writers need to realize this. Also - a death should be unexpected.

So a 'That was for Thane you son of a *****!' moment? cool, I'd be on board for that.

Sorry, but its not going to happen. Pre-launch (I think) SW's had a chance to

and there was a huge uproar over that. They would kill someone relavent to the story off, but not a companion. Especially a companion that some people (me) have romanced.

SGT Rusk is the ONLY one who should die in the JK's crew. He's completely useless as it is.
