Question Star Wars RPG

Why not make this Game like Oblivion instead of Online, that would be cool.

You've just asked the world's mst elusive question. Congratulations.
.
LucasArts seems to think that cries for a KotOR III equals an MMO. Either way, there will be no KotOR III, since BioWare is trying to make TOR into KotOR III, IV, V, VI, VII, MCXVIII.

Plus, if Bethesda made a KotOR like Oblivion, I'd have to assassinate them.

Probably because LA and Bioware looked at the success of WoW, LotRO, DDO, and Guild Wars (among others) and thought they could make a lot more money doing an MMO than a SP RPG.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

If bioware could make a kotor 3 better or at least as good as mass effect it would be the greatest game ever, but no they made an mmo... i thought kotor would at least be a trilogy..

Because EA needs a constant source of money for the rescission, and while looking at the success of Guild Wars and WoW, decided that this would be the best way to make some.

That being said, I don't think a open-world, FPS/RPG would work in the Star Wars universe.


Don't let people make you feel stupid for being yourself; do what you love to do and what you think is cool.

KOTOR and TSL both WERE RPG games.

No they were true RPG's Oblivion is a shadowy failure when comparing to RPG's such as NWN and Kotor. Plot development and character development are how you know that Bioware will always far exceed Bethesda and there porr attempts at the RPG market. I need only look at there latest RPG failure Fallout 3 which does not hold a candle to the quality of RPG and story depth found in Fallout 1 & 2 published by Black Isle which was the Predecessor to Bioware. Also look to cames like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale from Black Isle/Bioware and know that those are what true RPG's markers for the PC. Ironically Bethesda had a good thing with Oblivions predecessor Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind when it came to an RPG gaming experience it would have been good to see them improve upon not downgrade the role-playing experience. Rather Bethesda has and still does focus more on combat mechanics and less on story.

These words are not my humble opinion but the reality of one who has been playing pc rpg's since the 80's and 90's. Also I have been a diehard PNP RPG'er and I can count on one hand the number of great combat games I ever played with PNP as compared to the innumerable gaming sessions where the stories are still rich in my head.

Oh and for reference RPG stands for Role-Playing game. To further define this in a RPG your goal in the game is not to win but to play a "Role" Within a story. This role defines you as your character his/her background, his/her motivations, & his/her goals. In traditional PNP RPG's you have Gm's or Storytellers there job is to create the outline of there story and where they want there story to go. Your job as the player is either to achieve this goal that has been set before you or in a good campaign be able to do exactley the opposite of what the storyteller had in mind without unravelling there world.


Working so, we will learn history as a tree knows it; we will climb into shapes printed in the seed; we will become time made visible, years made fragrant; we will make of concentric memory a stem of praise; we will inhabit daylight at a trees own speed; we will be travelers who remain, patriots to this ground.
