The original KOTOR is (much like the original Baldur's Gate and the first Mass Effect) one of the reasons I'm lamenting the "death" of BioWare at the hands of EA's shareholder interest.
Don't count them out just yet. Call me naive, but I have high hopes for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Well, more like "cautiously optimistic", but you catch my drift.

^ Oh, I feel similarly optimistic about Inquisition, especially since the last couple of years have softened me on Dragon Age 2

Re: Kotor 1 vs 2

Considering the single year time-frame Bioware had to develop DA2, I tend to think of it as nothing short of miraculous, warts and all.

Re: Kotor 1 vs 2

My vote goes to the first game. Perhaps KotOR 2 has the "better" story, but IMO it lacks KotOR 1's sense of fun and adventure. KotOR 1 did a better job of capturing the tone of Star Wars and actually made me feel like a hero (or a villain, depending on the playthrough). KotOR 2's moral ambiguity doesn't really mesh well with Star Wars' black-and-white, good vs. evil themes. I also thought Revan's companions were, overall, much better than the Exile's.

OT: Herkimer Jitty, I love that avatar! So bummed that WH13 is ending soon (and only getting six more episodes).

Hyeah, pretty much. I don't think any of the KOTOR II companions come close to Jolee or Canderous. They're just... the best. Jolee might just be my favorite Jedi in the entire franchise.

Thanks

It's a bummer, but it fits: it seems like like 4-5 seasons is as far as SyFy's willing to take a show.

I think the biggest problem with Dragon Age II was the number. Had they kept the Dragon Age: Subtitle pattern, expectations that it'd be related to the first game more than tangentially would have been lowered.

Ummm, Canderous is a companion in KOTOR II. He's the Mandalorian leader that joins you on Dxun.

When I played KOTOR for the second time, I decided to give Jolee Bindo some focus. Holy god, is this guy for real? For 15 minutes, he shows more wisdom and understanding about what it means to be a good Jedi than anything Yoda has ever said in any of his movies. I honestly hate Yoda after knowing Jolee's whole back story and what he does to set things right. It's so unfortunate that everything else in Star Wars glorifies Yoda's vague, "everything is a path to the dark side" approach.

Well, all that cautious "path to the dark side" business ended up biting the Jedi in the collective butts, so good riddance! Hmmph!

*any of the newly introduced KOTOR II companions

Happy now? Or do we need to do more proofreading, professor?

Regardless, I thought he vastly less interesting or entertaining than he was in KotOR 1.

Re: Kotor 1 vs 2

Yeah, agreed. He seemed far less developed this time around. Too bad, as he was such an interesting character the first time around and I was looking forward to learning more about him.

And yeah, out of the first one, Jolee Bindo was my favourite companion. He oozed class.
