Tyrell Posted May 7, 2004 Share Posted May 7, 2004 In Knights of the Old Republic you were given the opportunity to play out the story as a servant of the Lightside or servant of the Darkside. Depending on what side you chose through the game determined how the ending was. Well that wasn't quite true. In KOTOR the ending didn't come down to what side you were on during the game, it just came down to one decision....and that decision came on top of the Temple roof on the Rakata planet. I could have went the WHOLE game as an Uber Lightside Jedi will with my lightside meter all the way to the top. But that really didn't mean anything, I could have been that Uber Lightside Jedi but at the Temple, side with Bastila and determined how the game would go from there. Same way vice-versa. I could have been Uber Darkside throughout the whole game but at the Temple, if I didn't side with Bastila it would have went on from there with the LS route. So in other words, ALL of the choices you made during the game to be on LS/DS didn't matter. What really mattered was what your decision was on the top of that Temple. I knew something like that was going to happen cause like 1-2 months before the game came out it was confirmed by the developers that you can flirt with the LS or DS through the whole game but 3/4 through the game you'll have to make a final choice. So with KOTOR II I hope it isn't like that. There should be no single moment in the game that determines how the rest of the game should play out. What determines how the rest of the game plays out should be how you went through the whole game, whether it be Darkside or Lightside. On that Temple roof when you meet Bastila, this is how it should have been: If you were on the Lightside part of the meter, then when you confronted Bastila, all of your dialog options should have been to trying to bring her back to the LS. If you were on the Darkside part of the meter, then when you confronted Bastila, all of your dialog options should have been to trying to convince her to become your new apprentice and help kill off Malak. If you were neutral (In the middle part of the meter, not quite LS or DS, just normal). THEN you should have had the option to either chose....side with Bastila and become Darth Revan once again, or try to bring her back to the LS. It should have played out that way. I hope KOTOR II plays out like that and doesn't go the same route as the first KOTOR where the choices you made eariler in the game literally meant nothing as the fate of the galaxy came down to one conversation rather then the choices you made eariler in the game.
