Read the book awhile back. It was readable. Knew Revan wasn't going to live forever, Exile either, but they did kind of go out lamely. Doesn't affect how I feel about the game/s, though. Don't worry about venting, bitching or whinging.....a lot of that goes on here regularly.

We basically control that character for a set period. What its creators do after that is out of our hands.
