My Exile would not be a war leader... End of story, SHE had her fill of leading soldiers into battle at Malachor V. Leading troops into battle would have violated all my motivations for playing her the way I did in TSL. So your problem solve violates everything about my Exile.
I don't see the big deal. I thought TOR did a very good job with the way it handled TOR and TSL. There was enough there to show the connection without beating you over the head with it. I do hate one of the Jedi Knight Companions and I really like the way they handled Revan. They made him what he really was, a flawed Jedi, instead what fans have turned him into the star war jesus. Personally to me the Exile was the better character then and now.
