  1. Morrowind too big? How is that possible?! I want games as big as they can be made!! It significantly enhances the replay value. I think it would be a great idea to make a SW galaxy as wide open as the world of Morrowind. Probably not going to happen anytime soon but it is a great idea. Kilkanon
  2. Niether Obi nor Anakin by themselves was a match for Dooku, granted. Obi-Wan knew this which is why he told Anakin that he needed him for the encounter with Dooku. Anakin was at best an average duelist at the time of this encounter due simply to lack of experience and too much pride. He thought he was much better than he was which ended up making him a bit complacent. However, Obi-Wan and Anakin together might have been able to take him. As for Palps, I don't know if he learned the saber when a child or an adult but as Palps was very strong in the force and the Sith training isn't anything like Jedi training it ends up making little difference. Is he one of the best? I don't think so, but he would have to be at least above average in order to train Maul and Vader and then hold power over them for as long as he did. Sith teachings being what they are. Kilkanon
  3. Dooku had it easy because Anakin was arrogant and stupid. Had Anakin listened to Obi-Wan it would likely have been a very different story. And Dooku was not toying with Yoda. If Dooku had seen a chance to effectively "behead" the Jedi Council he would not have hesitated for a nanosecond. No, they were testing one another and after finding no major weaknesses Dooku decided to make a strategic retreat. After all, his true concern was getting the plans for the Death Star to Sidious. He was apprenticed to a Sith Lord named Darth Pelagius whom he eventually killed as is the way with the Sith. I don't know much other than that.
  4. I liked Bastilla and Carth and they were the two that I kept around when I wasn't doing quests for the others. I really liked Jolee and HK too but I would say that I spent the most time with Bastilla and Carth and sometimes just Bastilla because I wanted her all to myself...
  5. Mahf, I believe you are correct and daresay I couldn't say it better myself. My original post was made in the interests if finding an official answer to this question but as none is available I would say that this fills in many of the blanks. Kilkanon
  6. I believe Lord Helmet said it best... "I was your father's, brother's, uncle's, cousin's former roommate..." "Ok, so what does that make us?" "Absolutely nothing, which is what you are about to become!"
  7. I am not sure if you are just making a joke or if you are saying that Vader didn't really kill many Jedi. Sooo... I will say that it took a while for Sidious and Vader to (almost) completely wipe the Jedi from the galaxy. And as usual Sidious did the bidding and Vader the running. So Vader had hunted and killed many Jedi before he faced Luke. Kilkanon
  8. Someone had posted a link to some pretty funny comic parodies of TSL as well as other SW games including Galaxies but I can't remember what it was. Anyone help me out? Seems the comics revolved around two guys, a semi responsible one and a total underachiever. Thanks Kilkanon

  10. It was really confusing to me as well. Basically you can change your companions' on screen alignment but as far as changing their way of thinking... forget it. It ends up making no sense whatsoever and requires a DS player to keep "true DS" companions with him/her and vice versa. If you try to make decisions contrary to your companions' "true alignment" you will lose influence with them. This game was finished in 13 months. Why? I don't know, seems pretty rediculous to me. They needed to do a lot more scripting and voice acting for the "Influence" system to make any sense at all. Kilkanon
  11. Well, I think we all agree that given Luke's gene pool he was what you might call "a quick study" in the force. Still, I have to disagree that Luke did little that was remarkable in ESB and ROTJ. In ESB Vader has one objective, to capture Luke. You would think capturing a boy with a few weeks of Jedi training would be a as easy as Force Choking a baby for a powerful and experienced Sith Lord such as Vader. Vader had been hunting and killing Jedi for around 20(?) years before he faced Luke. Instead, Luke defies every attempt by Vader to capture him, he even struck Vader a glancing blow on the shoulder while dueling him! Finally, instead of Vader calmly determining the sequence of events, Luke prompts what had to have been a premature, perhaps desperate revelation from Vader and then escapes by falling into a huge shaft and using the force to see him to safety. Then he uses the force to direct Leia straight to him. Pretty amazing if you ask me. In ROTJ... Luke personally and intentionally orchastrated the downfall of both Vader and Palpatine... think about why he threw his lightsaber away. He did not leave himself defenseless because he was suddenly overcome by suicidal tendancies... Luke was paying close attention to his father's feelings, especially after he spared Vader's life just as the Emperor was crowing for Luke to kill Vader and take his place. He knew, he could feel how close his father was and so he made a choice, the most difficult and the best possible choice if you think about it and he triumphed completely over Vader, Palpatine and the dark side. When I ask how Luke got so powerful with so little training that is what I really mean, that was power, the power of the Jedi. Many before Luke, including his own father never mastered that power and fell, but Luke did not. And all with a few weeks of Jedi training... remarkable. Anyway, I think you all have given me the answer I asked for. There really is no official explanation as to why Luke could do so much with so little other than what is implied by his heritage, the fact that he had a stable and loving childhood and two of the finest Masters to teach him what little he did learn by formal methods. Thanks guys. Kilkanon
  12. I was afraid of that answer <_< ... I was hoping that there was some really cool answer that would send me haring off to the bookstore or library in order to sate my keen desire for all things Luke. Ahh well... Kilkanon
  13. I know this has probably been discussed before but I am new to, well pretty much any forums on SW and I don't want to wade through thousands of topics... My question is this: How is it that Luke becomes so powerful in the force with only what seems to me to be a few weeks of training under Obi-Wan and then Yoda? Jedi were traditionally taken for training only while very young. Even then the average apprentice doesn't even make Padawan until he is in his early to mid teens and then has to wait another 7 to 10 years for Knighthood. That is 20 - 25 years of constant training starting from early childhood! Luke, at the age of 17(?) starts training for a few days under Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan dies, Luke finds Yoda three years later, Yoda trains him for a few weeks at most and he is uber?! Proportionately speaking, that's like giving a raw recruit, who hasn't even been through basic training, one day of Navy Seal training and then sending him off on his first mission... and somehow he not only lives but completes the mission... This question has lingered with me since I first watched ESB. Has there ever been any attempt to explain this either in the comics/books or by Lucas himself? Kilkanon
  14. Sure it's all fictional but that hasn't stopped you from posting over 2000 times on this forum alone . That is quite an investment of precious time if you ask me. Must be something here that is important to you.
  15. You know... these threads are so chaotic. In large part because many people are less interested in participating in a discussion and more interested in simply airing their opinions... almost all of which are ill-informed and negative in that the one replying has not given any thought to or even fully read the post to which he/she is replying. It ends up being totally chaotic and non-sensical and almost unswervingly degrades into a parody of itself. Case in point: See above posts... Kilkanon
