Release my children! My hat is truly great and mighty.

Personally I've always seen Kreia's goal as a metacommentary mostly analogous to G0-T0 criticizing you for thinking that because you killed Darth Malak, everything would magically fix itself. KotOR2 came out in 2004, between Episodes 2 and 3. There's definitely something pointed to making a story about how relying on the force makes you weaker as a person at the same time George Lucas is giving Palpatine the power to make our heroes dumber. Like she's saying "dude if you just magic your way out of every writing problem, you become a bad writer."
I feel that's a little undercut by the game co-starring, in no particular order, a Force Vampire, a Force Zombie, and a Force Black Hole, each being ridiculously powerful in their own way. I've always found that far too Kevin J. Anderson-esque for my liking.

Anyway, as far as Kreia is concerned, she's just a way for Avellone to gripe about Christian theology and Calvinism in particular.
