20 hours in and this game has been nothing but generic f2p mmorpg style trash with juvenile writing, plus it's nearly unplayable due to the amount of times it corrupts your saves.
Is the second worth playing at all? I noticed it's done by Obsidian, and it's actually been updated to work on modern systems.
I've beat this game 20 times and I've never had a problem with corrupt saves. Maybe you should try getting good?
Writing isn't that great yeah but it's still better than any of the movies.
I agree OP, I played KOTOR on release and thought it was really unnecessary. Star Wars has always been a swash buckling adventure epic, and a slow-paced RPG isn't the right genre or system for Star Wars at all. The lore isn't interesting because it isn't developed in a way that actually means anything, it just exists either to further the adventuring plot of the films, or to sell merchandise. And it all feels so childish anyways. The action games are good because they let you live out that childish fantasy of being a Jedi in action. But KOTOR isn't that, it's just a mediocre RPG that shouldn't really exist.
Yes I'm sure they and their billions of masterfully crafted wookiepedia articles will blow away my opinion into dust and let me see the error of my judgement, seeing the true beauty in the meticulous and thoughtfully rendered universe, envisioned by Lucas.
