We’re talking about a game that set out to make the Jedi look bad, your mentor being a Sith who lost her connection to the Force, a main character who is so edgy that she killed an entire planet and was cut off from the Force because of it, and that thinks killing the Force is the best outcome for the Star Wars universe. If I’m told I’m “subverting expectations” because I want characters to be more than their specie’s stereotypes, than I can’t imagine those people seeing a game like KOTOR2 as anything less than an abomination in the franchise.
I started playing it with the restoration mod a few months back, and I found it dull and annoying.
So like most common people in a society. The common folk tend to not care too often about what happens outside their lives or the details that don’t matter overall. And you forget “The Force itself is evil because it causes these wars and we are the Anti-Force because we were cut-off from it until now.”
I wish the could have played around more with Dooku maybe actually being a good guy.
Separatist Movement actually wants instead just shown that they’re just a tool for Palpatine to create a war he controls both sides of.
There’s that brief moment that plays with the idea when he tells Obi-Wan that the Senate is now under Sidious’s control which we the audience know is true so it make it seems like the Separatists are founded to fight the Sith Lord.
