  1. Hehe, from reading the Female Romance thread, I got to thinking about the progression of Carth's dialogue from kotor1 through 2, and I made a little sort of tribute audio piece for anyone interested in him.  :devil:

    My server's still down, so I uploaded it to YouSendIt:



    I obviously wasn't able to stick in ALL the good quotes (the file's long enough as it is), but I tried to include enough so the listener could kinda get how his feelings grew from the beginning.

    The music used is the love theme from Episode II, which I actually think is the most ideal theme for Carth.  It's very beautiful, emotional and bittersweet, just like him.  :">


    I think it proves that Carth's way more the loverboy than Atton, at least in terms of being up front with his feelings....  I still love Atton too, though.  :)


    My god.. this is great.


    Where di you get the background music, anyway?


    And how did you mix it together?


    Ever thought about making a Bastila or Atton one?

  2. Now without a doubt, the current ending for KOTOR 2 is just plain old bad right now.  But I would of hated it if Kreia ended up killing all my companions in the end.  What kind of an ending is that?  So you mean to tell me i worked super hard to keep my team together only to have them all killed in the end?  To me, killing off main characters in the end is just a cheap way to try to get more of a dramatic event. 


    Kinda happy Obsidian didn't go this route because now I can hope to see Disciple, Atton, and all the chars I fell in love with in KOTOR 2 and hopefully see them in KOTOR 3 along with the great characters in KOTOR 1.


    Well, I rather have a complete ending than an incomplete one.

  3. I forget.


    But I do know that she and NS are more sympathetic to you.


    I know for a fact that, Kavar completely follows and believes in the Jedi Code, and actually isn't arorgant like Atris and Vrook are; it seems he's actually being self-vigilant.


    However, his beliefe in the Jedi code makes him unable to accept you, even if you are on the path of the light. I think he has nothing against the Exile personally, but the has to follow the code.

  4. It seems to me, of all the Jedi Masters, Lonna Vash and Nar Shadaa's Jedi Master (can't remember name) are more sympathetic to you, Vrook and Atris are against, and Kavar is right in the middle.


    NS Jedi Master is obviously sympathetic to you, considering the fact he thought what the Council did was wrong; and the fact he understand you had to do what you did.


    Lonna Vash, (if you read the hidden files in dialog.tlk, and take a look at unused sound files( is also very sympathetic to you, and she feels that you had at lteast the right the right to know the truth.


    Vrook obviously hates you. Even when you are in the path of the light, ihe only stubbornly admits that you are on his side. Even then, he is condescending, arrogant, and obvously contemptous. He considers you unworthy of being a Jedi,.


    Atris, also shows the same feelsing, but as we might see later on, it regret/jealousy of not going to worry with you.


    None iof these really follow the Jedi code completely. They also show some semblance of emotion, whenever it was regret, contempt , passion, empathy, sympathy, hatred.


    This leads me to Kavar. The only true Jedi Master. He follows the code loyally, and beleives in it, but has made sure he didn't stray from it. For the jedi code is hard to follow, because you must remove evertyhing you have to be that made you human.


    Now, the argument is, should you "fall" to the light side, or shall you rather stay human, like Jolee did? I feel the bigger issue is, is there a midpoint in being Jedi and follow your following your feelings?


    Well, enough typing for me.



  5. The funny thing is, KOTOR actually LOADS and RUNS faster on my computer than KOTOR does. And KOTOR crashes WAY more often.


    And whne you say OE did bad planning and wanting too much, well, I'm not going to argue there; regardless, it was obvious to me, now, theat they deserves more time, bad planning or otherwise; they did a very good job of this game, considering the fact that LA cut their time short, from feb to dec.

  6. The current ending is neither postivie nor negative. It's just incomplete. It doesn't really show what happens to do your companions, it doesn't really give you a chance to have one last convo's with them, and it certainly feels that you just run off after Revean, regardless if you companions are dead or alive.


    If LUCASARTS had intended and wanted a postivie ending without a doubt, and would not have it any other way, couldn't they instead of the nixed ending, where Bao-Dur is either dead or trapped, Atton turns on you, or dies, and the Handmaiden betrays you, couldn't they have had all your companions (ones that are available anyway) find some way to stand united, behind you and for you? And couldn't they have a celebration ceremony somewhere, just like KOTOR1? This still works with the Exile leaving hiis/her companions behind, if they didn't find out.


    Now THAT's a postive ending. Not that the ending I want, but a complete, and positive ending. I would have been satisfiied.


    This either means LA was pressuiring OE to rush, or OE ran out of time. You can't really say OE didn't use their time well; this was one of the best RPG's I have played. That said, either way, LA didn't give them enough time to finish the game, and the only explanation for the incomplete ending was because LA did not allow enough time for OE to make an ending, positive or negative, and if they since endings are important,, I doubt it would have slipped under LA's radar that OE was planning a dark eniding in the first place. So, if they nixed the dark ending, I doubt it was because LA didn't approve it; now I believe LA simply did not wisht to give OE the time to completel it. IF LA had wanted a postive endiing without a doubt,, they would have probably said something during early development.

  7. Screw Lucasarts. I know their "wishes" were to make it more open endied and mysterious, but with THAT kind of kind of ending, like Atton said (paraphrasing), "You know, that wholel cryptic routine? It's not really cryptic at all, it's just irritating".


    And when does Lucassarts wishes override FAN wishes? Sure, you can argue they make the game, but it is WE who buy it.


    And you know what? If they had actually intended for a light hearted ending, why didn't they allow Obsidian Entertainment to make one? That's weird, because by no means as the current ending of KOTOR light hearted at all. If Lucasarts HAD intended, and wanted OE to have light haatted ending, the ending wouldn't be at a dark setting (Malachor V). It's obvious to me that OE ran out of time, or Lucasarts pressured them. Either way, the result is obvious; because OE didn't have enoguh time, their ending wasn't complete.




    I've already personally decided not to buy any Lucasarts games for one whole year. I might even extend to two whole years, if they keep this up.
