I found TSL to have the more intriguing story though, I played KotOR I after I played TSL, in fact TSL was the reason why I got KotOR I.

The charecters of TSL seemed for the most part to be more dynamic and interesting, Atton Rand was way better than Carth Onasi for instance. T3-M4 actually had a personality, HK-47's commentary on the party members from KotOR I was a riot.

You could tell there was a lot of stuff missing though, unlike KotOR I where it seemed a bit cliche at times but you couldn't tell anything was missing. In TSL you could see the signs that the game had been wounded badly, but it still having had not played KotOR I until afterward, I actually liked TSL better than KotOR I.

Current Game: The Witcher
You present some good points. Obsidian gets credit for trying to inject fresh ideas; nevertheless, were people ready for a major change in storytelling? Star Wars movies have a focal tone to them; thus, the first Knights game was successful in emulating Lucas's style. Gamers saw Star Wars in the first game. Obsidian tried to emulate Empire Strikes Back; however, the current version of The Sith Lords fell short. How can anyone give the game a proper review while it being damaged? How did a game become Game of the Year when it was incomplete? My brain hurts.

I actually Played TSL before I played K1 don't remember how or why but I actually liked them both equally.They could have ended the whole thing with K1 and been done with it! Revan was a hero and sailed off into the sunset, The End, story over.
But then everyone wanted to know, What happened to Revan? Where did he go? Does Bastilla Shan follow him or not, and if not, Why? Is it because she was pregnant with his baby? etc,etc,etc...

So LA decided to make a second installment, with an exile that for some reason did not know who, what, when, where, why or how he/she was. Then this exile finds out he/she is a hole or a tear in the fabric that is the force but since "The Force makes up all things great and small and binds the galaxy together" (I guess this part of the story is not possible) etc,etc,etc... I personally feel that even though there was a lot of missing content they did a Damn good job of telling the Story, and before everyone that did not think so, starts Screaming that I am an idiot, or have no clue
Answer this question first;
When you were done Playing TSL, Did you or did you not want to see when they were going to come out with KOTOR3?

Well since everyone on this site wants to see KOTOR3 in some form or another that completes the trilogy, Not the MMO version, IMO. I guess the story did what is was supposed to do, leave you on the edge or your seat wanting more, to see what finally happens to Revan and/or the Exile. They did so much building of the legend of Revan in the second game they left you craving more, hence the term "Revan Fan-boys" (which I am not one of, btw). I am not going to argue about how they told the story or what game it looked like, the bottom line is they told the story that left you wanting more which is what is was supposed to do, it was never meant to be the end of the Revan Story. I won't even mention the facts that the game from soups to nuts had to be approved by LA so if you don't like the story or how it was told then the issue lies with LA not the 3rd party developer that did what LA told them to do!

Oh and SilentScope001 there is no need for you to apologize for anything, your prediction, this thread or any other Post you have made. To all the people that are giving you a hard time they should just step back and take a moment to realize this is a forum about a Video Game! A video game based on a story created by a crazy idea of some 1970's college student! So relax Star Wars and everything in its universe is make believe! and BTW your prediction was not wrong We all know the "True Sith" get defeated in the end and Anakin Skywalker restores balance to the force by chucking Poppa Palpatine into the reactor core.

I remember being bored for a majority of the game, wondering where this out of place convoluted story was going... then realized I was watching the credit's, the last thing on my mind was KotOR 3, because i was opening the box to KotOR 1 again while simultaneously throwing the disk to TSL over my shoulder.

God no, I thought exactly the contrary. I call putting all the "blame" on the Force for pretty much everything left out of explanation on K2, bad storytelling.

Similar to the first part of Adamqd sentence. But, yeah, it left me wondering when - not if - K3 was coming out. After all, with that ending, it tricked us all, even SS (don't get cocky ).

You shouldn't have to feel obligated to apologize for making a prediction that yourself or others may view as inaccurate or "stupid". Unless you offended certain people during your thesis/prediction, then I don't see any need to apologize since speculation and predicting the outcomes of things are all apart of forums everwhere be it for Star Wars or Anime. Besides, since EA assimilated Bioware and has essentially warped KOTOR into this amalgamation of a continuity, it's difficult to tell what they really have in mind with the "Sith (belief)/True Sith (species, etc.)" anyway. For all we know, they could make a pre-death star and LF would retcon it as the proto-prototype or whatever.

As far as the Hole in the force part of the story and the way they used Kreia yes that was convoluted, I could have done with out the story going in that direction, but the rest was about a the exile looking for Revan.
How they would incorporate the exile getting new force powers, and the regaining his use of the force I don't know. But they used what was given to them and did what they could.

As I said previously in this post I agree, but the consept of the game and the was thought up by LA. The finished product went thru LA, if they approved it then the Blame is on them, it is not entirely the developers fault. If LA didn't like the idea I am sure they could have change it sometime during the devlopment of the game.

I wasn't being cocky, not in the least. I was just stating how I feel on the subject.
