Hi fellow Obsidian and Kotor fans
you clearly know about SWTOR treatment of Revan and KOTOR,already insulting,but i wanted to talk about Shadow of Revan,the latest expansion of SWTOR that it was clearly the end of Revan
for those who like SWTOR or simply don't like harsh but constructive criticism,please don't read
what i think that they have done a very poor job
they have ruined Revan for the last time making him a one dimensional villian.
basically what the TOR "Writers" had done is to turn Revan evil once again.making his redemption in KOTOR 1 pointless
the poor sod is just being constantly torn apart and made him turn back and forth on light and dark side for expansions and more money
even when it was previously stated that he didn't die and that was alive,but that he used the "Fold Space" ability to get out of,it was retconned that Revan pyshically died after the foundry,but when he went to join the force the dark side part of him didn't want to and used his dead body as vessel,kicking out the "lightside" part as ghost and splitting in two
apparently,after all his struggle with the emperor,his redemption solved nothing and meant nothing,
the novel made his fight with the emperor a personal matter and the goal of his life,but since he was just letting himself die for no reason just because "hey i was defeated,i'll just myself die in a minor appearance after 300 years of struggle that i resisted and give up on my main objective that i spent half of my life to fight "
with that logic,he could have just stood in the known space without going to Dromund Kaas because he would have died anyway
Revan's goal was to defeat the old sith empire,it was his destiny to do it
now we will have the next ****ty expansion with the JK and Republic players gang up against the emperor with a shoehorned Revan ghost that will say "hey good luck with that"
Since he was freed from the foundry he has been constantly being harassed,underplayed and written to be a kid's show villian
the Ofiicial wikia information
"You hid behind Jedi platitudes! You weren't strong enough to survive the torture, or the battle in the Foundry. I faced them! I survived them!"
"You carried on, dragging the remains of a body that should have long since faded to dust." ―The two halves of Revan
However, his long imprisonment had an adverse effect on Revan. Because of his link to the Emperor's mind, he was able to temper the Sith ruler's hatred and desire for war, but Revan was influenced in turn, and he underwent centuries of torture at the hands of the Emperor and the Dread Masters. The Sith sought to twist Revan to the dark side once more, and though he was able to resist their efforts, he was forced to separate himself from the pain and focus solely on the Force. This had the effect of splintering Revan's mind between its light and dark halves, though the effect was not evident at first. By the time he was released, he had come to view the Empire and the Emperor as a scourge on the galaxy that he would sacrifice his moral principles to destroy. Using the Foundry, Revan intended to unleash an army of extermination droids upon the people of the Empire, and he was once again willing to sacrifice innocents in order to advance his cause
When Revan was defeated in the Foundry, he died and attempted to became one with the Force. However, his darker half—the part driven by hatred and anger—resisted and retained control over Revan's body, while the rest merged with the Force and became a spirit. The new "dark" Revan became obsessed with destroying the Emperor permanently, and he readily accepted leadership of the fanatical Order of Revan. He viewed both the Empire and the Republic as obstacles to his plans and so sought to remove them, and believed that he was strong enough to defeat the Emperor despite having failed before. While the light Revan possessed the original's wisdom and compassion, the dark half possessed the Revan's strength and focus but clouded by hatred. It was not until the dark Revan's defeat on Yavin that the two halves joined together once again, and the newly whole Revan was able to fade away and become one with the Force. After being freed from the Maelstrom Prison, Revan's face was permanently scarred with circular marks and lines and his death in the Foundry left his face even more scarred.
Thoughts? lame ending for such a good character thrown away for money
i'm not good at explaining,but i know for sure that this is not the ending that Revan should had,make him turn on the republic and empire again it's a lame cliche'
