Death of the author and all but I often wonder exactly how full of poo poo Kreia was intended to be

yeah. thats my thought too, like the game goes out of its way to make her look like the smartest person in the room and she is basically space libertarians nihilist. like she is right that both idiologies are broken as gently caress but her liberterian thing of "well helping people only hurts them and all strength must be from youself alone" rubbed me the wrong way.

KOTOR 2 is one of the best Star Wars stories ever written but I can never forgive it for spawning a generation of idiots who thought its message was "You should just pick the best stuff from Light and Dark and follow your own beliefs instead of do8ng Jedi OR Sith, bing bong so simple setting forever solved by Grey Jedi," because they weren't smart enough to understand it

yeah. like the dark side is kinda of one way street even if your just dabbling and both games kinda show that pretty well. you either end up using it as a hosed up crutch and become an addict or you end getting trapped in the dark side game of thrones.

i was always annoyed how TOR ruined revan by making him get brainwashed by emperor snoke or viete or whatever his name was so he would be a vanguard. i always liked revan as some who believed way to hard in the ends justify the means type and he sees the jedi as a bunch of moral cowards and letter sticklers so he goes and does all the hosed up hard poo poo and through war and atrocities both witnessed and committed he slowly turns away from the light. then he becomes obssed with finding future threats and than finds the grand daddy of them, that should push him to the fall fully and he basicaly takes up the sith mantle to build a greater force against the threat. instead of "he went and the sith man brainwashed him"

Nihlus gets done the dirtiest of the villains by the obvious deadline and budget issues. Fetch quests are over, His ship just shows up, time for a bunch of disconnected fight scenes on taris or whatever, oh now you kill him on his ship and somehow canderous gets more lines of dialogue than anyone else in that whole sequence. Even the early plot points with Visas feel pretty disjointed and weird. Everything about nihlus needed a little more time in the oven I think.

Meanwhile, Sion is almost totally irrelevant to the bigger plot and to Kreia's force wound plan but we know all about his mommy issues and why he had to be a sith lord because kreia didn't hug him enough, and he is constantly showing up like the Exile's nemesis.


i weirdly like sion. dudes sad gently caress who keeps himself alive on hate and desperation for validation from mentor who views him a force welfare leech so he basicaly


also isnt nihlus just a force vampire/blackhole? like he just drains everything around him slowly.
