Exclamation Whitehouse.gov petition for KotoR 3

http://wh.gov/l2T2Q



Please sign and share this petition. This is serious business. Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic needs to be completed in a third installation, not a MMO. KOTOR 2 left so many questions unanswered. It would have sold, so it's bullcrap that Lucasarts didn't green light it. It was in freaking pre-production with a storyline and everything. We need to get this petition circulated to all corners of the internet. E-mail it to your friends, post it on Facebook and every social networking/media site you're a member of. We also need to show it to Lucasarts and maybe they'll take a hint. We must defeat the tyranny of Darth Lucasarts. May the force be with us.

Btw, not a spam bot, just a fan of the franchise who googled KotoR forums to get signatures for this.

This is hilarious.

Also, LucasArts doesn't exist anymore.

It won't happen. The Exile is dead, Revan turned evil again, his plans got foiled, and he either died or Force Asspull-Teleported away in defeat. Get over it.

There have been much much stupier request that have gotten boosted by the whitehouse.gov petitions.

2 examples would be:
A. Release of the NASA survival kit, in turn the government gave a grant to NASA to try and make it cheaper so that regular people could obtain one.
B. THE MAKING OF A DEATH STAR. The best part was that Obama agreed that if they could get private investors to fully fund it they would build it.

I'm sure with the Syrian poison attacks, a crappy economy, the approach of the debt limit ceiling, and implementation of Obamacare that the President will take time out of day to address this life-altering petition.

Pretty much no franchise ever does anything like that.

to me, Those 2 flashpoints and the Novel are poorly written. And to me, being poorly written is a negative. A No show on the fates of Jedi Exile and Revan is better than poorly written trash.

And Lucasfilm isn't going to scrap part of a story or declare it non-canon just because people think it's poorly written.

Why? No matter what they did - wrote something good, wrote something bad, wrote nothing at all (as the years between TSL and TOR attest) - the fanbase at large would still moan and moan, disregard whatever was officially decided in their own "headcanons," and write their fanfics that are no better - with their principal motivation being moral outrage over a story rather than a desire to write something good.

Most fanfics are rubbish. As for Entirey of the Star wars EU, there are stories I do consider more poorly written than The Novel and the 2 Flashpoint.

Jesus God, talk about statism! Libertarians like myself get such a kick out of guys like this!

Also, read the novel Star Wars: Revan to find answers to everything you mentioned. Sure, it's not what I would have preferred, but the closure it provides is better than nothing.




[Edit] Also: "Issues: Human Rights, Job Creation, Technology and Telecommunications." Hahahahahahaha!

[Edit 2] And I did post your petition to my Facebook wall, only to poke fun at it. Here I am worrying about trivial things like the imminent collapse of the dollar.

As much as I want to see a KOTOR 3 I don't see any logical reason why the United States government would care. Forms of entertainment such as music, movies, and games are great for society, but they are not at all important to the world as a whole.

So are most fans' opinions on what "should" have happened to the series, whether what did happen was good or not, and why the original two games' stories were good.

It's ironic how those who are complaining about what they did with Revan are probably the ones who kept asking for canonical answers about what happened to him ever since 2004/2005...

As for me, I don't care for canon. To me, Less said about Revan and Jedi Exile the better. Sometimes in Life, Less is more.

I appreciate your love for the kotor series but, I had to get a chuckle out of this,...not because your asking it but in my mind....I'm imagining a Fan-fiction written where this came true by the petition - The president talking to his advisors saying yes this needs to be done..(he is also a big kotor fan) and uses the powers to fight for the ability to do this but EA fights back and tries to help the Bioware team escape before they are detained.

If Obama's daughters liked Star Wars, we could persuade them to make their father do something about it.
SERIOUSLY!
Do you really think Obama has enough time for Star Wars?

Let's say the petition magically received 100,000 signatures. Would the United States government really speak to Luc...Disney about making KOTOR 3? Obviously when someone submits a petition to the whitehouse.gov website it gets looked over by whoever is in charge and is either denied or accepted. This petition was accepted and is legitimate, but I still have doubts that if enough people signed they would look into it. I'd hope they would though because if they didn't it would discredit the whole purpose of offering petitions to the public.

EDIT: Wait a minute...
"Designate the Republican party a terrorist organization for repeatedly threatening the full faith & credit of the U.S.A."
That's a petition from the website that already has 251 signatures...
This pretty much tells me that any petition makes it on the website, unless it has inappropriate language most likely.
If it received 100,000 signatures the US government most certainly wouldn't accept it. I think that once a petition gets the needed amount of signatures it just means the government will actually read it and discuss it, it's not a definite yes.
"Pardon Edward Snowden"
This petition among other ones have received much more than 100,000 signatures yet obviously the government isn't going to listen. Obviously KOTOR 3 would be more realistic, but it's still not an important issue and would most likely be shot down...

2nd EDIT: It appears that it's not all about the number of signatures, but the number of petitions relating to a topic. There are full page replies from president Obama discussing different topics such as one about gun control. There's a list of all of the gun related petitions at the bottom and he is responding to them all as a whole. Some have lots of votes, some only have a few, but there were enough people total that it deserved an answer. So what I'm basically trying to say is that there won't be a KOTOR 3...at least not this way.

Okay, let's pretend this ludicrous thing happens and the U.S. government intervenes. What will this mean for you? It'll mean you'll get the crappiest game ever, that's what! Think about it: Someone holds a proverbial gun to your head and forces you to produce something, not because it's your passion and you want to do it out of your deep love for the franchise, but because there will be dire consequences for you and your family if you don't. As a result, what you produce will have no substance, no heart, because you're only trying to please a tyrannical and ridiculous government who doesn't care about quality, only that it gets done. The fans' approval has nothing to do with it at that point.

Maybe you'd feel more at home in a country living under Sharia Law, where things like entertainment are heavily regulated, their content dictated by the heavy hand of a terrorist government. But we live in the United States of America, where the Constitution is the law of the land and the market is free (relatively, for now).

Although considering the author made only a single post and hasn't returned, I'm guessing all of our comments are useless.

And at that...


This is a Channel 7 news brief because the news is happening now!


Good evening, Mort Pertkins reporting. Our top story tonight, police and investigators are still trying to figure out how and why somebody stole 4 dead bodies from the Wayne County morgue late Monday night.

Police say, the apparent body thief entered through the basement window, but how he eluded the security and alarm system is still a mystery...But what we at Channel 7 are wondering: What kind of SICK F%^@ would steal 4 dead bodies anyway? Details at 11.
