Don't think I've played kotor 2 since it came out. I remember it being pretty spectacularly disappointing. You play the last of the jedi on a mission from a jedi to find four other jedi. Because being the last of something sounds cool, I guess. Also you're some kind of nonsensical echo wound thing or something.
I'll take the first one any day. The story won't win any awards for originality, but it was fun, and there was no point where I wasn't clear on where I was, what I was doing or why I was doing it.
