Who was the fool that threw the basket in the pool?
The first game was amongst my first introductions to RPG titles and a nostalgic favorite that I've beat several times. The second game is ranking amongst my all-time favorite video games, as a restored version of II has some of the most satisfyingly well-written and atmospheric sequences, stories, and characters in any video game I've played. These games are why I have lengthily opinions on morality in Star Wars (help).

Have any of you felt the power of third person turn-based combat?

I love you, son.
They're some of my favourite games of all time, particularly KOTOR2.

Although I really fucking hate the centrist idea a lot of Star Wars content has that "Balance = Light AND Dark", at least in KOTOR you can kinda reject that.

There is a lot of people loving KOTOR here, myself included.

I would argue that Star Wars actually propagates against the idea of attaining the balance between light and dark and is about actually picking a side, because as far as I remember everyone in Star Wars that tries to keep balance either fall for the dark side or stay away and have no impact and get forgotten. It gets most apparent in this moment

You have a good point, but a lot of Star Wars media misunderstands this and thinks that balance seems to mean an equal amount of light and dark. I don't think this is what KOTOR 2 is doing, but a lot of people have interpreted Kreia's viewpoint as being the absolute truth rather than simply her own twisted idea.

Yeah, that's true.

They never put it on PlayStation, which was my console of choice around the height of this game's popularity.

Today, I don't have a machine that could run it (story of my life).

You can get the first one on mobile now, if that helps any. I haven’t played it but one of my friends says it wasn’t half bad.
