Joren DarkStar Posted April 26, 2004 Share Posted April 26, 2004 Just something I thought of. How many times has this pissed you off in a movie or game? You watch a movie, or play a game, and get attached to a character, and everything is great. Then, you move on to the sequel game or movie, with all new characters, and your favorite character makes a cameo, only to DIE. It Bites! Essentially, the whole previous movie/game is pointless, because the charater that drove it is dead! Its as if you found out you lost the game after thinking you won it! I seriously hope that with the details that you can "set up" the story by describing what happened in the previous game, that say, if you go on to say that it ended in the lightside romance with Bastilla and Revan, that you found out that they ran off together to the unknown regions, and stay together throughout the course of the game, with neither dying. Or, if you took the evil path with female Revan and Carth still alive, that when you bump into them again, that Revan is still evil, and Carth still lives, as a subject to Revan and still loving her, yet "trying to save her" this whole time (you find out Revan keeps Carth around because she is amused by her). See, its touches like that which will make the new game better. If it seeks to reaffirm the players choices rather than invalidate them through killing Revan or a main potential love interest, then it only adds something to this story. I only fear because it sounds from the article that some people die, and they had to choose which. I guess my breakdown would be this: Revan Lightside KOTOR 1 Automatically Lives - HK 47 - We know that he lives, so I am adding him here. T- Droid (forgot designation) - Same as HK Zallzabar - Lives, but He would be a better potential candidate for a "noble sacrifice" from a KOTOR 1 character Bastilla - If Revan's love interest, then she goes with Revan, if not, she is a survivor of the Jedi Civil War Automatically Dead - Juhani - Jedi Civil War, remember? Jolee - Same as above On the Hot Seat - Mission - Killing the kid would be a great way to show the casualties of war, but keeping her alive means she is now 19, and a little older, thus a more mature mission could be a neat cameo. I say kill her because you don't get to play as her. Carth - Carth dying would make another impact, but not one the devs might want. I didn't mind him, but I know a lot of people would cheer. I think it would be better if he was off screen, but reunited with his son, unless you choose the romance path with carth, in which case, Carth and Revan took off for the unknown regions. Canderous - Awesome, but getting up there in age. Also reflectant at the end of the game. I would either have him die a warrior's death, and be the other potential candidate for a "noble sacrifice" if the devs are looking for one from a KOTOR 1 character, or let him live out the rest of his life in peace. Now for the easy part: Revan Darkside in Kotor 1 There are only 4 ways this can go - 1) Everybody dies. Remember, You killed everyone. 2) Everybody but Carth Dies - For the romance dark side plot. 3) Everybody but bastilla dies - you take her on as your apprentice. 4) 2 + 3 - Carth and bastilla live for the above reasons. At least in the above ways, the devs can afford to kill some characters (which based on the article, they are going to do), without ruining the story of KOTOR 1. I just especially want to avoid the damn cliche'd "Oh, I loved him/her, and now they are dead." Or "Oh, I loved him/her, and they turned bad and I had to kill them." Or "Yes, we loved each other, but it didn't work out for BLAH BLAH YAK BLAH CRAP." That plotline has gotten really stale in RPG's - let us feel good about someone being happy for once...
