Also when you "finish" Revan he says "And now I know how you felt in the end, old friend" in which he is referring [I think] to Malek when he died on the Star Forge. Then Revan vanishes in a flash of light much like the Emperor in TOR and ROTJ. So in the end had Revan fallen back to the Dark Side? And a 2nd question. Do you think Revan is dead, or did he simply use the force to vanish.
what? i never tracked down revan and attacked him...my story ended with malgus creating his own mini empire....

No no no. actually he is talking to the dead Darth Malak, whose last words were "As the darkness takes me, I am nothing." and Revan says "As the darkness takes me, I am nothing. Now I know how you felt, old friend." an obvious reference to Malak since they were good longtime friends. This dialogue directly referenced Malak's prior death and thus Revan's death in Beta, since he would literally fall dead and you could loot/dance on his corpse.

Anyway my guess is, since his fate is uncertain and he has literally no friends or allies. [Even Republic thinks he's dead] he will be used as the Emperor's final vessel in some much later expansion flash point, operation, or [far more likely] planet storyline, since it's confirmed in Makeb that the Emperor is basically a bodiless force ghost for the time being, and a final sacrifice to destroy the Emperor [with the help of the protagonist] would appease most Revan fans and allow the character some closure.

No, there is also line "Thank you, old friend. I will finish what we started". It happens after Mitra disappears.

You're talking about two different flashpoints. He talks to Meetra when the Republic saves him. Says the other quote before he disappears on the Empire flashpoint.

And, by the way, I don't understand how the Republic, and the Jedi council, could condone Revan's extermination plan... I think they are aware of his plans, aren't they?

Var Suthra's crazy weapons, Godera's research, Barrager on Balmorra, experiments on Belsavis.... Revan extermination plan matches the other deeds of "good Republic".

i mean at this point whether Revan fell or not doesnt really matter. he's been in touch with both sides for so long i feel as if its more like how he feels in the morning...do i feel like a jedi today? nah im feeling sithy. he can obviously draw on either side whenever he wants. and i guess its more important wat he does in the future of the game. and no he's not dead.... its been confirmed they chose not to kill him in an interview so to decide how they will use such a key icon in the future. (idk why ppl still ask if he's dead...) fact is. they wont kill him till he meets his descendant. i call it.

Shades of grey, the Republic are by no means saints.

Actually the implication of Revan surviving his flash of light disappearance would be interesting as later on in the canon Shaak ti disappeared in an almost identical fashion during her 'death'.

Pretty sure he already did, since by the end of the Maelstrom Prison flashpoint, he's on his way to Tython to share all he knows with the Jedi Council. I believe it's safe to assume that Satele was there.
