        So welcome to another guide (or FAQ or anything you would like to call it)
    of the best series of Star Wars. Here goes my second FAQ. A little experience
    from the last time help me out at least a little today.
        Revan Guide? Does the name confuse you? Yes, I'm sure it does. I guess the
    question in the your mind is: "What the heck is this guide all about?" Yes a
    question that is must and should be answer. Here goes: read the content above,
    it says: "Anything about Dark Lord Revan". That's exactly what this guide is.
    This is neither a gameplay guide nor walkthrough. Not really a plot guide but
    some sort of that. This guide will cover every information about Revan the Dark
    Lord that is mentioned throughout the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
    series. Including various things range from how high he is to what his eyes'
    colour is. Yeah, I don't mean I can find everything in great detail such as how
    many teeth he has or what's his favourite music band, but I'll try the best I
    can, to find everything at least in this game.
        If you can't answer who Revan is then I guess you shouldn't read this guide.
    Revan is a fallen Jedi in the Old Republic era and played a large role in the
    fate of the galaxy at that time. This guy has an ambiguous identity. New
    information is revealed in small corners of everything, bringing his identity
    closer to the light. Well, just because this guy is really a mysterious one with
    information about him shattered in every place, this guide is here for you.
        So finally, you've got it. The first completed version of this guide.
    Finished it eventually.
        Due the nature of a plot guide, this file contain serious major spoilers.
    So at least for now, finish the first game and read at your own risk. Enjoy.
        English is not my native language. Grammatical corrections are welcomed here
    and I'm very grateful to whoever help me improving my English. I'm waiting for
        If you're reading this file online, I recommend downloading it now. You'll
    need a lot of time to read a FAQ, especially this one.
        3956 BBY means three thousands and nine hundreds and fifty-six years before
    the battle of Yavin (Episode IV). It's a mark of the Star Wars timeline.
        There you go, if you want to say anything, feel free to do it. Especially
    information in other expanded universe franchise, I don't have chance to be
    with them.
     <|       02. Appearance Profile [apf]      |>
        This section concerns general information and figures about Revan.
     <|             02a. Name [nme]             |>
        Revan the Dark Lord. He used another in his crew file of Endar Spire,
    which is chosen by the player. Anything else? Has he got a family name? At
    least remain unknown in the first game.
        Conclusion: Revan and nothing more.
     <|            02b. Gender [gdr]            |>
        Nothing can tell you about that. However, he *does* has some problems with
    his gender. Though you choose to be FEMALE, Master Dorak of Dantooine Jedi
    Academy still refers to Reven as MALE (his, he). I just don't understand what
    the heck BioWare thought. They seemed to be sleeping, but *I* will refer to
    him as male: he and his, though I prefer a female one. And yeah, HE WAS
        At Sean's request: Revan's gender can be defined in KotOR2 by the player
    character in a conversation with Atton Rand, a NPC party member.
        DarthMuffin: Canonical Revan's gender is male. Referred in "The New
    Essential Chronology".
        James Cooper: LucasArts has come right out and said Revan is male.
        My own comments: I don't like that *canonical gender* at all. Don't like
    the way he is a male one, don't like the way much of his identity is revealed
    like that.
        Conclusion: Unidentified, but canonically male (I don't like that).
        Every contribution with this topic breaks my effort to deny that ugly
    confirmation from Lucas Arts.
     <|            02c. Species [spc]           |>
        There's nothing I need to say.
        Conclusion: Human.
     <|              02d. Age [agx]             |>
        I don't remember if Calo Nord or anyone else ever mentioned Revan as a
    *young* one. The masters of Dantooine Jedi Academy said that he was an adult
    when he came there under the identity of a Republic recuit, so I guess he's
    not a teen. Being taken as an infant, reaching the title of Jedi Knight,
    earning reputation among the Order, leading a war for years. I guess it takes
    more than twenty years.
        Another note for this section: his age in 3956 BBY (KotOR1).
        Message from dreadrock909:
    | Revans Age - If you remember, there was books, and an added text that       |
    | Master Vrook or Vandar said that wasnt in the game, said he was 20 years    |
    | too old to train to be a Jedi, which is 3, SO he is most likely 23.         |
        Sounds quite reasonable, but in fact, he think he must be a little older
    than that, as my speculation above.
        Conslusion: Presumably about 25 - 35 (in 3956 BBY).
     <|            02e. Height [hgh]            |>
        First, see this picture. Not sure whether it's still available.
        I'm really neither the author nor someone know what that picture is about,
    but I've got a purpose here. Do you realize that Revan's height is only about
    Malak's shoulder? Malak is two meter tall so I guess it's quite enough for a
    conclusion with this funny picture. :)
        From Matthew Lord_Of_carnage: Hey dude I'de simply like to point out that in
    the picture with Reven and Malik (the hight thing) Its not really a fair example
    because in the game Malik towers above *all* the characters, hes like 8 foot
    tall, so I'de just like to say Reven is probably 6 - 6'5ish,
        Sorry but you made quite many mistakes out there. I didn't think it was
    English at the first time I saw your e-mail. Also I have no idea how many meters
    are equivalent to one foot either, my country just doesn't use that. Still,
    thanks a lot for this contribution.
        It's your own judge about this. Not much I can do beside putting your
    opinions here if you have some. :D
        Message from Jens Ostendorf:
    | 1 foot (ft) = 30.48 cm; 1 inch (in) = 2.54 cm.                           |
    |                                                                          |
    | So if someone is 6 feet tall, his height is approximately 1.83 m.        |
    | (1.8288, to be more precise)                                             |
    |                                                                          |
    | Therefore Matthew Lord_Of_carnage was not quite in sync with you,        |
    | since you thought Revan to be about 1.80 m tall, or 5 ft 11 in in        |
    | imperial measurement. He said Revan to be somewhat between 6 ft and 6    |
    | ft 5 in, which, in metric measurement, is between 1.83 and 1.96 m.       |
    | Considerably taller than you think Revan to be. And wrong, in my         |
    | opinion. I think 1.80 m is quite correct.                                |
    |                                                                          |
    | Hey, Matthew Lord_Of_Carnage, just how tall do you think the people in   |
    | the Star Wars universe are? How tall, for example, are Zaalbar and       |
    | Chewbacca? When Zaalbar is as tall as Chewbacca, Darth Revan cannot be   |
    | taller than 5 ft 11 in, considering how much taller Zaalbar is. No way!  |
        A very nice one. Special thanks for this contribution.
        Conclusion: About 180cm.
     <|            02f. Weight [wgh]            |>
        Nothing can say. Do you care about that?
        Conclusion: Unknown (Presumably about 80kg, matching his height).
     <|         02g. Birth Place [brp]          |>
        Another mystery about this. We really know nothing. I've never heard of
    anything or anyone ever tell about that, except for a response in a dialogue
    with Bastila Shan mentioning a remote system called "Deralia".
        Dodgelova sent me a message
    |Well, early before the game, and the movies even, there were comics and   |
    |books from Star Wars, |dating from the Beginning of the Exar Kun Wars to  |
    |Darth Vaders Secret Apprentice, and there acually |was a story called     |
    |Knights of the Old Republic, which stated Darth Revens Birth Place. His   |
    |alter-ego was convinced he was born on a different planet, im sure, but he|
    |was acually born on Utapau.                                               |
    |                                                                          |
    |So the sorce would be - Knights of the Old Republic Storyline (1990-1995  |
    |Dating)                                                                   |
    |                                                                          |
    |1995 was when the KotOR Storyline was acually made global, before the     |
    |trilogy in 1997.                                                          |
        I've heard of something about a series of comics called Knights of the
    Old Republic, but I've never heard anyone or anything mentioned this. Really
    not sure. Just drop me an e-mail if you feel inappropriate.
        Another message from dreadrock909 about this, mentioning the fact that
    Utapau was his birth place and KotOR story was a book, not comic. Seems a
    lot of people have confirmed this source. Okay, so here you go: Utapau.
        Conclusion: Utapau (Deralia in new record).
     <|          02h. Eye Colour [eyc]          |>
        Remember the Revan's Mask removing scene occured when Malak reveal Revan's
    identity on Leviathan? That's *true Revan*. Look at his/her eyes. Clear but...
        Comment from Mark van Ginkel: You state Revan's eyecolor as yellow, judging
    it from the scene where Revan is revealed his past on the Levithian. There's
    only problem there, at that point in time, Revan is the Dark Lord of the Sith
    and corrupted by the dark side. You can't judge his original eye color from that
    scene because the yellow eyes are a side effect of dark side corruption.
        Well, I didn't guarantee his eyes' colour. But that's right, the conclusion
    shouldn't be like that.
        Conclusion: Unknown (Yellow while on Dark Side).
     <|            02k. Costume [cst]           |>
        Go to Google, change to search image tab and type in Revan. That's the
    shortest way. It is great if you can tell me something more about this.
        Conclusion: Distinct costume includes: Mandalorian mask, black robe, hooded
    cloak, metal armour.
        So yeah, very special thanks to Tom Davies, let's make it "hooded black
    robe" though "black hooded robe" isn't incorrect at all.
     <|       03. Occupation Profile [opf]      |>
        This profile includes infos about Revan's works and his activities, which
    can't be told with his appearance.
     <|             03a. Ranks [rnk]            |>
        This requires the plot's understanding and the experiences of the game. In
    another way, you need to play and then later ask yourself: "What happened?".I'll
    also cover some figures here which I found on the Internet and weren't mentioned
    in the game.
        Conclusion: Jedi Knight of the Jedi Order; Supreme General of Mandalorian
    Wars; Dark Lord of the Sith; Taris Swoop Champion.
     <|             03b. Alignment [rnk]        |>
        No the heck anyone can tell us about that. It depends on nothing but the one
    who plays the game. But one thing here. Even if you play as a light Jedi, the
    truth is that Revan has *EVER* tasted the Dark Side before, which makes him
    *darker* than you think. For any who doesn't understand what I'm about to give
    you, I can explain at least a little for you. Count Dooku, Jolee Bindo, Kyle
    Katarn and possibly Jaden Korr. You got it? The ones who possess both the Dark
    and the Light Side of the Force.
        This doesn't mean a neutral alignment, remember it. Here's a nice link.
        Comment from Mark van Ginkel: You state in the end that Revan is a gray
    jedi, but this isn't true. He was at one point Darth Revan who was undoubtfully
    evil and dark sided. After getting his mind erased and recieving false memories
    from the Jedi council, it is up to the player to decide Revan's alignment.
    Canon states that Revan reformed and used this new chance to stay on the light
    side, but he isn't exactly a gray jedi because of this.
        Hmm ... make some senses. It's quite silly calling him a Gray Jedi anyway.
        Comment from dreadrock909: Last, but not least, his alignment. He was on
    the Light side during his life before Mandilorian Wars and AFTER he was
    captured, and only was corupted for like 2 years, so he was pretty much light.
        Okay, I'll leave it a bit more specified.
        Conclusion: Light Side until the joining Mandalorian Wars, Dark Side until
    captured. Later up for the player to decide.
     <|           03c. Biography [bgy]          |>
        First of all, he started like the others. Revan's homeworld remains unknown
    for now, where he was taken when he was young from his family. He was trained
    by several masters, including Zshar Lestin, Vrook Lamarr and Kreia.
        Learning at the Coruscant Academy, Revan was really somewhat *special*. He
    was the one who was strong in the Force, showing much potential to his Masters.
    Charismatic, headstrong and proud, Revan earned much admiration among the Order.
    With his close friend Malak, the pair often came for Master Jedi Zhar Lestin for
    additional training. Their lust of knowledge wasn't ignored by the Masters, but
    was seen as eagerness and exuberance of the youth. As Master Zhar stated :
    "someday would be the champion of the Order".
        In 3976 BBY, the Mandalorian Wars began. Carefully prepared for the main
    objective, defeating the Republic, with conquered planets which didn't provoke
    retaliation, they launched a massive assault in 3,963 BBY. The Jedi Order was
    asked for assistance, but denied due to the caution for another conflict. This
    was the time Revan, who has rallied many Padawans, Knights and even Masters to
    his noble goal of defeating the invaders. His closest friend, Malak was the
    first to join him. Gaining the entire command of the Republic fleet, Revan with
    his clever tactics brought the ultimate victory for the whole galaxy. However,
    instead of returning to the Order, Revan, Malak and their brethrens disappeared.
        For a year, Revan and Malak found the Star Forge, a space station built by
    the Infinite Empire of Rakata with the power of the Dark Side with the hidden
    Star Maps over the galaxy. The Dark power of the Star Forge corrupted them. But
    Revan was the more clever one, who wasn't possessed by the Dark Side as much as
    his companion Malak.
        Returning to the Republic, Revan claimed the title of the Dark Lord of the
    Sith with Malak as the apprentice. For two years, they were invincible,
    conquering the galaxy. A slim hope shone for the Jedi and the Republic, Bastila
    Shan, a young Jedi who has mastered the rare art of Battle Mediation, which can
    turn the tides of the whole of a battle.
        In 3957 BBY, Revan and Malak were lured into a battle by a Jedi fleet, in
    which Bastila was. Bastila used Battle Meditation to board Revan's flagship.
    It is Bastila who led the Jedi strike team to confront Revan face to face. In
    his master's jeopardy, Malak instead of trying to save his Revan, ordered his
    ship to fire on flagship on where both Bastila and Revan were. Revan was knocked
    unconscious. Instead of leaving Revan on the flaming ship, Bastila carried him,
    escaping from death just on time. Without the knowledge of his master's
    survival, Malak seized the throne, claiming the title of the Dark Lord.
        Revan then was brought to the Jedi Council. His mind was badly damaged, thus
    taking away his memories. With the power of the Force, the Jedi Masters
    reprogrammed Revan's mind with a new identity. A raw Republic recruit, a loyal
    one to the Republic with a completely new name, directly called to serve on the
    Endar Spire, whose officer in charge was Bastila Shan herself. From here,
    Revan's life had changed.
        <</// Here's where the first game started \\\>>
        Fearing for Bastila's Battle Meditation, which could give Malak an ending
    like Revan's as he had seen, he tirelessly hunted down the young Jedi. In an
    ambush, a squad of Sith Fighter attacked Endar Spire. Awakened by the
    explosions, reformed Revan met Trask Ulgo, a crew member of the Endar Spire.
    When searching for Bastila, they were noticed by Carth Onasi, the ship's pilot,
    and were told to get to the escape pod as soon as possible. On the way, Trask
    Ulgo was slain by Darth Bandon, Malak's apprentice, making the Carth and
    reformed Revan were the only crew member left on the ship. The two got away in
    escape pod to the planet of Taris, leaving the burning ship behind.
        Awakened on Taris, Revan had a vision of a Bastila Shan fighting with Revan
    himself/herself. The two entered Lower City with a stolen Sith uniform and made
    a deal to won the Tarisian Season Opener swoop race that was believed to be the
    only way to free Bastila. However, in order to win, the Prototype accelerator,
    which was stolen by the Black Vulkars, needed to be recovered. In the Taris
    Undercity, Revan met Mission Vao, a teenage scoundrel, helped her to find her
    Wookie friend Zaalbar, who gave Revan a life debt for the rescue, and entered
    the Black Vulkars' base. Encountered by Kandon, Brejik's right-hand man, Revan
    was offered to represent Black Vulkars in the race at the cost of treachery.
        1A. Revan declined Kandon's offer, killing him and recovered the stolen
    engine. Revan won the race in the name of the Hidden Beks but Brejik showed his
    treachery, accused the Hidden Beks of cheating with the prototype accelerator
    and withdrew the prize, Bastila.
        1B. Revan accepted Kandon's offer with extra 500 credits. Returning to
    Hidden Beks' hideout, Revan assassinated Gadon then later won the race under the
    Black Vulkars' banner. However, Brejik showed his treachery, revealed Bastila's
    Jedi identity and withdrew his prize.
        Bastila used the Force to break her cage and freed herself. Suprised and
    angered, Brejik ordered his gangsmen to kill everyone. Revan killed Brejik with
    the help of Bastila and then explained to her why he was there. They then
    returned to the apartment in where their hideout was.
        Revan once more had the vision in which he had been fighting with Bastila.
    This time, it is revealed that he was knocked out by an explosion.
        Attracted by Revan's victory in the swoop race, Canderous Ordo, a
    Mandalorian mercenary of Davik Kang, made a deal with him to escape the planet.
    Revan purchased T3-M4 Utility Droid and stole the Launch Code in the Sith base
    for Canderous, then they both approach the Ebon Hawk, Davik's vessel, with Revan
    as an applicant. They encountered Davik and another mercenary of his, Calo Nord,
    a bounty hunter. Meanwhile, in the space, Malak ordered his bombing fleet to
    open fire on Taris. Defeating Davik and Calo under the Sith's fire, Revan and
    Canderous stole the Ebon Hawk and escaped the collapsing planet in time. They
    then decided to stay refuge on Dantooine, on where a Jedi Academy was.
        There Revan was trained to be a Jedi once more as a *special case* without
    an option left. Under the guidance of Vrook Lamar, Vandar Torake, Zhar Lestin
    and the Chronicler Dorak, he finished his initial training quickly. Vrook Lamar
    somewhat showed disagreement. Revan's final test to end his apprenticeship was
    to clear the taint of the sacred groove, which was Juhani, a fallen Padawan of
    the Academy. Revan later found Juhani at the groove and was attacked by her. No
    matched for Revan's power, Juhani was defeated.
        2A. Revan convinced Juhani to return to the Academy as the path of the light
    still opened for her. Then she was forgiven by the Council, once more walked in
    the light, ending Revan's test.
        2B. Revan decided to kill Juhani, ending his trial in violence and blood.
        A vision that Revan and Bastila both shared led them to a ruin in Dantooine,
    in where Revan and Malak had been once. Here they found a Star Map and the
    existence the Star Forge. They pair were ordered to find the missing Star Maps
    and the Star Forge using the Force connection they shared for an ultimate goal:
    stop Malak.
        The Star Map they found revealed the other Star Maps' locations: Tatooine,
    Kashyyyk, Manaan, Korriban. Revan visited each of them, collecting the missing
    maps one by one.
        On Kashyyyk, Revan met an old Jedi named Jolee Bindo, who had been there
    for over twenty years to help the Wookiees. The planet, also was the Zaalbar's
    homeworld, had been living in slavery with hidden contracts with Czerka
    Cooperation which were made by Chuundar, Zaalbar's brother.
        On Tatooine, Revan hunted a Krayt Dragon and found Star Map in its lair.
    Also on this planet, Revan might have reunited with his assassin droid HK-47.
    However, the droid didn't recognize him and called him specially "master",
    not like he called other humans as "meatbag".
        On Manaan, Revan faced a giant shark in the deep ocean and got involved
    into several cases which made his place "the accused" in the Manaan court.
        On Korriban, Revan disguised as an exiled Jedi and learned as an apprentice
    in a Sith Academy. He found the Star Map in the tomb of Naga Sadow, a powerful
    Sith Lord, in his final trial to become a "true Sith".
        Calo Nord, the one who escaped the Taris bombardment and also seemingly
    informed Malak about Revan's existence, was hired to assassinate Revan but fail
    and killed. Darth Bandon, Malak's apprentice and the murderer of Trask Ulgo in
    the Endar Spire attack, was the second one to assassinate Revan but got the same
        3A. During the search, Revan and Bastila found Helena, Bastila's mother and
    learnt about the death of Bastila's father. Revan helped the grievous daughter
    to settle down with her mother. Leaving Bastila's mother, they fell in love.
    Bastila tried to deny their feelings, eventually ended their arguements with a
        3B. During the search, Carth confided to Revan about his life as a Republic
    pilot. He was betrayed by his mentor, Saul Karath under command of the old Dark
    Lord - Revan, and lost his family in the same hand. Revan found his son, Dustil
    Onasi in the Sith Academy on Korriban, reuniting the long lost family. Revan
    and Carth later fell in love. Carth started to forget his wife and promised to
    protect the woman he loved - Revan.
        <</// I repeat: Revan's gender is completely unidentified \\\>>
        Leaving the world on where Revan found the fourth Star Map, the Ebon Hawk
    was caught by the tractor beam of Leviathan, Malak's flagship. Carth, Revan and
    Bastila were captured, painfully interrogated and revealed about the destruction
    of Dantooine by Saul Karath. After Saul Karath left the hall, a crew member of
    the Ebon Hawk, who was hiding when Malak's troop searched the vessel, rescue the
    captive three. They headed to the ship's bridge to hunt down Saul while the rest
    of the party returned to the Ebon Hawk.
        Encountering Saul on the bridge, the trio defeated him with many other
    guards. They then faced Malak the Dark Lord himself. Malak revealed Revan's true
    identity while Bastila tried to clear the reason of her action.
        4A. Revan forgave Bastila, understanding that she had no choice and faced
    Malak in battle.
        4B. Angered, Revan accused Bastila and the Jedi of using him, claiming that
    they were no better than the Sith.
        With Bastila and Carth stunned, Malak and faced Revan in a solo duel. Malak
    lost his ground and had to use the Force to constrain Revan. Bastila, awakened,
    jumped into the battle and prevented Malak from hurting Revan. The door closed
    with Malak and Bastila behind. Revan and the rest of the party escaped with
    the Ebon Hawk as well as his true identity is revealed to everyone. However,
    Revan didn't lose the faith of his companions.
        With the final Star Map found, Revan's party headed to the revealed location
    of the Star Forge. While aproaching the station, the Ebon Hawk was hit by a
    strange energy and crashed on an unknown world, which was actually Rakata Prime,
    the homeland of the Infinite Empire of Rakata. Revan there was gotten into the
    war of the Rakatan tribes. Eventually made his way to the temple with his Force
    gifted companions, Juhani and Jolee, Revan found Bastila turned to the dark
    side, waiting for him on the roof of the temple. Bastila persuaded Revan to
    claim his rightful place from Malak, the throne of the Dark Lord, with her help.
    Revan here made a choice that change the fate of the galaxy.
        5A. Rejecting Bastila's temptation, Revan remained on the path of the light.
    Bastila left the world with her G-Wing in angered. Revan disable the energy
    source and call for the Republic for a massive assault on the Star Forge.
        5B. Tempted by the future of power and domination, Revan slew Jolee and
    Juhani in cold blood. Returning the Ebon Hawk, the party was shocked by the
    Revan's turning to the Dark Side. Carth ran away, saying Revan wasn't the one he
    loved. Mission Vao and Zaalbar were slain mercilessly. The rest of the party
    headed to the Star Forge and for the Republic for a massive assault, which would
    weaken Malak's defense.
        Boarding the Star Forge, Revan faced the Malak's droid army, heavy troops
    and many Dark Jedi. With three-quarter of them slain, Revan stepped to the Star
    Forge's Command Center.
        5AA. There Revan faced Bastila, using her Battle Meditation to maintain the
    Star Forge defense. Too far from reaching Revan's mastery, Bastila was defeated
    effortlessly. Flabbergasted by Revan's power from the Light, she begged him to
    strike her down. Revan, with the love and the bond they both shared, returned
    Bastila to the light and faced Malak in final duel.
        5AB. Revan, with overpowered mastery, defeated Bastila effortlessly. Casting
    off the love and the bond they shared, Revan ended Bastila's life with a single
        5B. Revan and Bastila faced the three strongest apprentices of Malak and
    defeated them without effort. Bastila remained at the Command Center, using her
    Battle Meditation to maintain the Star Forge's defense against the Republic
    fleet. With overwhelmed number and the assistance from the inside, the Republic
    force fell before the Star Forge, ending the life of Admiral McDodona and Jedi
    Master Vandar Torake.
        The final moment of Malak came when Revan walked into the platform. The two
    duelled. Malak, even with the stored energy from several wounded Jedi, was no
    matched for his former master.
        5A. In Malak's final words, he confessed the mistakes he made for following
    Revan to the Dark Side. If he had been captured by Jedi and returned to path of
    light, things wouldn't had been the same. Malak's life ended in regret and
    darkness. Revan's party escaped from the blowing space station and celebrated
    the final victory on the ground of the Rakata Prime's temple.
        5B. In Malak's final words, he confesses the righteousness of the Revan's
    throne, saying Revan was everything but nothing, belong neither to the dark nor
    the light. The evil was defeated by another evil, putting the galaxy into an
    era of darkness and destruction with the second enthronement of Revan, Dark Lord
    of the Sith.
        6A. Revan left the Republic and ventured to vast space to defeat the *true
        6B. Revan left the Sith and ventured to unknown space. The Star Forge was
    left unordered and came to destruction. Bastila left the Sith Academy on
    Korriban and look for Revan.
        Where he went, only he knows.
     <|       04. Companion Profile [cpf]       |>
        Here are some "inhabitants" of Star Wars, everyone who has ever stepped the
    same steps with Revan's. The list is in order of chronologic appearance.
     <|            04a. Malak [mlk]             |>
        Species: Human
        Homeworld: Unknown
        Occupation: Jedi Knight of the Jedi Order (Former), Jedi General
    (Mandalorian Wars), Sith Apprentice (Former), Dark Lord of the Sith.
        Being the closest friend of Revan's, the two shared many similarities in
    their destiny.
        Malak's childhood remains unknown, but he was trained at the same time with
    Revan and presumably at the same Jedi Academy. Also, Malak was one of the most
    promising student of the Academy with many talents, notably his swordsmanship.
        In the Mandalorian Wars, When Revan called for his fellows in the Academy,
    Malak was the first to join him. With the gifted power of Malak and the perfect
    strategies of Revan, the two led the Republic to the final victory. However,
    sharing the same fate with Revan, Malak fell to the Dark Side. Unlike Revan,
    Malak relied completely on power of the Star Forge, letting himself fully
    possessed by the dark energy.
        When Bastila Shan led her strike team to neutralize Revan face-to-face,
    Malak ordered his ship to fire Revan's flagship, in effort to eliminate both
    his most dangerous enemy and the master whose place he had been wanting. He
    failed, but only the Bastila's survival could reach Malak's ears. Then,
    obviously, Malak claimed the title of the Dark Lord.
        Fearing for the Battle Meditation, he hunted down Bastila for a long time.
    After the destruction of Endar Spire, Malak destoyed the world of Taris in
    order to eliminate Bastila. Once more, he failed.
        Learning the truth from Calo Nord, a survivor of the destruction of Taris,
    Malak sent both Calo and Darth Bandon to assassinate Revan and Bastila. And both
        The effort of Malak was paid when he captured Bastila on his own ship,
    turning her to the Dark Side. However, it was Bastila's turning to the Dark
    Side somewhat which had ended Malak's life on the Star Forge.
        Malak was ambitious when he was young which led him to the path of the dark
    side. Possessed by the dark side, Malak slowly lost the humanity, becoming
    merciless and hungry for power and domination. After such time, Malak wasn't
    entirely evil. In his death, he regreted following Revan to the dark path,
    asking himself what would had been if he had had enough strength to return to
    the light.
     <|           04b. Trask Ulgo [tsk]         |>
        Species: Human
        Homeworld: Unknown
        Occupation: Republic Troop
        A crew member of Endar Spire and the bunkmate of Revan after his *rebirth*,
    Trask was the one who awoke Revan and led him to the bridge. 
        During the escape, Trask sacrificed himself by distracting Darth Bandon in
    order to clear Revan's way.
        Trask Ulgo served as the tutorial instructor for the game process.
        He also possibly has some connection with Selven, a Tarisan bounty huntress,
    who also had a bounty on her head due to the assassination of the whole Ulgo
    family, with whom Trask might has some relations.
        Bah, according to what the game showed, we cannot confirmed 100% that Bandon
    killed him. He might appear later in something else, even KotOR3, who knows?
     <|          04c. Carth Onasi [cao]         |>
        Species: Human
        Homeworld: Telos
        Occupation: Republic Troop
        A distrustful man who was betrayed by his mentor. His mentor, specifically
    Saul Karath, followed Revan, turned against the Republic and destroyed the world
    of Telos, Carth's homeworld, as a proof of his loyalty. Carth's wife died in the
    attack and his son, Dustil went missing.
        Carth later became a crew member of the Endar Spire and the one who has led
    Revan to escape that had saved both of them.
        Following Revan, Carth found the once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity to revenge.
    Killing Saul Karath on the bridge of his own ship, Carth then learned the true
    identity of Revan, but didn't lose his faith that he had given to his party
        Carth Onasi was a love interest of Revan, who made her forget his deceased
    wife and later was the woman he loved.
     <|          04d. Mission Vao [msv]         |>
        Species: Twi'lek
        Homeworld: Unknown, grew on Taris
        Occupation: Inhabitant of Taris
        Mission Vao, a blue skin Twi'lek whose brother named Griff Vao, was an
    orphan born on an unknown planet and taken to Taris as a stowaway by her
        On Taris, Griff addicted to pazaak and spent an enormous amount of money on
    it. He later met Lena, a Twi'lek dancing girl and left the planet with her,
    leaving his sister on Taris. Mission the always thought it was Lena who made
    her brother forget about his little sister.
        Mission then met Zaalbar, a Wookie, in an quarrel with the Vulkars, and they
    became good friends. They were somewhat *wanderers* on Taris, searching for
    stuff in the dangerous Undercity.
        One day, Zaalbar was caught by Gamorrean slavers in the Undercity sewers
    when he was trying to clear Mission's escape. Mission ran into reformed Revan
    for help, with the promise of taking him into the Black Vulkars' base. With
    Zaalbar freed, Mission kept her promise to Revan and ever since, thet became
    companions of Revan, following him everywhere.
        Mission met Lena in coincident and was explained that it was Griff who
    decided to leave her, not Lena. Revan and Mission found Griff as a prisoner
    of the Tusken Raiders. Taking him out, Mission was angered to learn the truth.
    Before dissapearing forever, Griff took a tach gland which was brought from
    Kashyyyk and 200 credits away, all from Revan. However, Mission prepared herself
    for such things about her brother, accepted that no one was perfect and felt
    happy about the reunion.
        <</// Tusken Raiders are called Sand People in this game \\\>>
        Comment from Mark van Ginkel: The game is actually correct in calling them
    Sandmen instead of Tusken Raiders. They weren't called Tusken Raiders until
    they attacked and took over Fort Tusken (Hence Tusken Raiders), which they did
    only a few years before Star Wars Episode 1. At this point in time, they are
    only known as Sandmen.
        I didn't say "Sand People" was incorrect but let's admit: I'm impressed ...
        Despite being a Twi'lek, Mission Vao spoke Republic Basic instead of Twi'lek
     <|            04e. Zaalbar [zar]           |>
        Species: Wookie
        Homeworld: Kashyyyk
        Occupation: *Madclaw*
        Zaalbar was a Wookie born on Kashyyyk like the others, brother of Chuundar
    and son of the Wookie Chieftain Freyyr. Chuundar, secretly made deals with the
    Czerka Cooperation, offered his Wookie fellow as slaves, was discovered by
    Zaalbar. Zaalbar went mad and attacked his brother, which had broken a Wookie
    rule. For that, Zaalbar was exiled from the planet as a "madclaw". Traveled to
    Taris, there Zaalbar met Mission Vao and a deep friendship grew between the two.
        Oneday, in the sewers of Undercity on Taris, Zaalbar was caught and held
    captive by the Gamorrean slavers. He was later freed by Revan and swore a life
    debt, which made both him and Mission become the companions of Revan.
        During the search of Star Forge, Revan visited Kashyyyk, with Zaalbar by his
    sides, was intercepted by Chuundar, praised by the Wookiees as a Cheiftain and
    a great hero. Chuundar asked Revan to kill an exiled Wookie in the Shadowlands,
    who was actually Freyyr, the former Wookie cheiftain and the father of Zaalbar
    and Chuundar. Revan then raised a revolt for the Wookiees against the slavers,
    killing Chuundar. Freyyr returned to his rightful place and Zaalbar returned to
    Revan's party, continuing the incompleted quest.
        <</// That's the *light ending* for Kashyyyk \\\>>
        Zaalbar was also nicknamed *Big Z* by Mission.
     <|         04f. Bastila Shan [bts]         |>
        Species: Human
        Homeworld: Talravin
        Occupation: Padawan of the Jedi Order, Sith Apprentice.
        Bastila Shan was born on Talravin and had a childhood that was close to her
    father, an adventurer whose name was unknown. However, Bastila wasn't very fond
    of her mother, Helena Shan. Separated from her family by the Jedi Order, she
    still kept memories about her family.
        At the Dantooine Jedi Academy, Bastila Shan mastered the rare art of Battle
    Mediation. She was among those followed the wisdom of the Jedi Masters and
    denied the Revan's call for the Mandalorian Wars.
        After the fall of Revan, Bastila used Battle Meditation and led her strike
    team to capture Revan on his own ship. They narrowly escaped when Revan's ship
    was fired by the Malak's one. Then she became the in-charged officer of Endar
    Spire, to *take care* of the reformed Revan.
        During the search for the Star Forge, Basila and Revan met Helena,
    Bastila's mother, in the catina of Anchorhead on Tatooine, where they learned
    the death of her father. Helena asked them to find the holocron of her husband
    so she could kept his image. Bastila seemingly denied, said they would do if
    they had time. Revan was the one who resolved the contradiction between the
    mother and the daughter. Bastila realized she hated her mother unreasonably as
    Helena admitted she wasn't a good mother. In the end, Helena revealed that
    Bastila's father died in the effort of earning money to save his wife from the
    disease. Bastila gave her five hundreds credits and told her to find a doctor
    on Coruscant. She also decided to give her father's holocron to Helena, leaving
    a seemingly happy ending.
        <</// It's only the happy ending. There's another, which is darker \\\>>
        The rest of her story followed closely to Revan's, from the attack of the
    Endar Spire to the defeat of Malak.
        Bastila was a theoretical person, always keeping the Jedi Master's lectures
    about the dark side and the forbiddances of Jedi. During the journey with Revan,
    she kept muttering the lectures around his ears, even when they were in love.
    With the lectures, she tried to deny their love, defending that it was forbidden
    for the Jedi, for both of them. They finally ended all their talks with a kiss.
        Another love interest of Revan.
     <|      04g. T3M4 Utility Droid [utd]      |>
        Species: Utility droid
        Homeworld: None
        Occupation: None
        A T3-series customized utility droid made by Janice Nall on Taris for the
    crimelord Davik Kang. This droid was intergrated with combat armor and blaster,
    which weren't available for normal ones, in additional for the exceptional
    lock-picking and computer-slicing skills. The droid originally was made for
    Canderous Ordo, but was passed to Revan to assist him in infiltrating the Sith
    Base on Taris. T3M4 was one among ten members of Revan's party in the search for
    the Star Forge.
        T3M4 remained on Ebon Hawk even long after Revan left. There he saved Exile,
    a former Jedi General under command of Revan in Mandalorian Wars and became a
    party member, assisting him in his journey.
     <|        04h. Canderous Ordo [cdo]        |>
        Species: Mandalorian
        Homeworld: Ordo
        Occupation: Mandalorian Troop (Former), Mercenary of Davik Kang.
        Born as a Mandalorian, trained as a warrior, Canderous was one of many
    others that participated in the Mandalorian Wars. Fighting through many
    battlefields and reaching the rank of commander, Canderous was a veteran soldier
    among the Mandalorian force in the war. However, facing Revan, Canderous had the
    same ending like his brethrens: defeat and failure.
        Leaving the war, Canderous worked as a mercenary for Davik Kang on Taris
    and became one of the top men along with the bounty hunter Calo Nord. Seeing the
    time to free himself from the Sith blockade and the seemingly treachery of his
    boss, he helped Revan to get inside Davik's estate and stole the smuggling
    vessel Ebon Hawk, escaping Taris with the party just in time.
        Canderous was a veteran warrior with considerable physical strength and
    tactical skills. He kept fondness for the wars he fought in the past, trying to
    share it with other soldiers, but dissapointed when many didn't, notably Carth
    Onasi, who was once on the otherside of the battlefield with him.
        During the search for the Star Forge, Canderous showed apparent admiration
    to Revan for what he had done in the war. When Bastila declared Revan's return
    to the dark side to the party, he was the first to join, saying it was his honor
    to fight and fight with Revan.
        After Revan left. Canderous came to Dxun, a moon of Onderon system and made
    a camp of Mandalorians. He intended to re-unite the Mandalorian under one single
    banner of his. There he met Exile assisted him in going to Onderon and
    destroying the Sith cruise Ravager when it attacked Telos.

        Homeworld: Cathar
        Occupation: Padawan of the Jedi Order
        Juhani was born on Cathar, bearing the image of Jedi to her dreams in her
    childhood. After the destruction of Cathar, her family escaped to Taris and live
    in the Lower City. As ailens, they was disrespected. Her life was hard, with her
    father died and her mother working as hard as possible and gave all the food for
    her. Oneday she broke down and didn't recover. She was enslaved for the money
    that her mother had borrowed. This was the worst time of her life. 
        In slavery, she kept her memories about the Jedi as the guardians and the
    protectors of the innocent, hoping for a better life. Then she was freed by a
    Jedi, who in her opinions, was like Revan perfectly. Taking the trip to
    Dantooine, she was accepted to be a Student in the Jedi Academy and trained by
    Jedi Master Quatra. But later, with the hot-tempred nature of Cathar, she
    attacked attacked her master in anger and fell the dark side. There the tainted
    the kath hounds, driving them mad. However, she was soon redeemed by Revan, as
    his final test to end the the apprenticeship and become a Padawan. She learned
    that it was only a lesson that her master tried to gave her. Right after her
    redemption, she was promoted to Padawan and ordered to accompany Revan in his
        Juhani showed some seemingly romance with some other female character.
    Notably, she's the first lesbian in the history of Star Wars.

        Species: Human
        Homeworld: Unknown
        Occupation: Padawan of the Jedi Order (Former)
        Jolee Bindo was a gray Jedi, which made him do what he felt right. He broke
    the Jedi code more than once, and considered to be a brash and reckless by his
    masters. He and one of his friends, stole from the rich and gave to the poor,
    considered it "tax on the greedy". He lost the trust to the Order and left.
    He went exiled in the Shadowlands of Kashyyyk, helping Wookies and amusing
    himself with the Star Map.
        Jolee has prejudices against the wisdom of the Jedi and the Jedi code.
    Remarkably, his opinions about love that he said to Revan. He never admitted
    that he was a Jedi, "just a guy with the lightsaber". He shared many of his
    old stories to Revan during the search for the Star Forge.
        Oh, he admitted he was a Jedi when Revan turned to the Dark Side on Lehon!
    Well, that's weird.

        Species: Protocol/Assassin droid
        Homeworld: Unknown
        Occupation: Assassin of the Dark Lord
        HK-47 was a assassin droid which was built by Revan to eliminate those who
    he believed, would destabilize the galaxy. The droid passed himself through many
    owners' hand. Owned by a gangster and a senator, HK-47 killed many people, both
    good and bad. Eventually, he was taken to Yuka Laka's droid ship in Anchorhead,
    Tatooine and purchased by Revan. When Revan revealed his identity, his
    deactivated functions recovered, he was also revealed to belong to Revan.
        HK-47's apprearance is more like a protocol droid's, though he's merely an
    assassin droid. He showed apparent thirst for violence and carnage as the
    assassin's nature. He was loyal and friendly to who he indentified as "master".
    Any organic lifeform, with him, was identified as "meatbag". This was later
    revealed to be because of Malak.
        Hk-47 was damaged after Revan left and remained on Ebon Hawk. He was
    repaired and restored by Exile on his journey.

                     Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
                     The Force Unleashed (Working title)
        In 1997 - 2003, Star Wars games titles were released like rains. However,
    their quality was questionable. Most titles such as Rebellions, Force Commander
    and Galatic Battleground were failures. Often, they were rated average and
    mediocre. Rogue Squadron and Jedi Knight were considered the best series of Star
    Wars at that time. Recently, Lucas Arts reduced the number of Star Wars titles,
    which has clearly rises quality of Star Wars video games. Knights of the Old
    Republic, Republic Commando, Battlefront, LEGO Star Wars and Empire At War
    gained various degrees of success, especially Knights of the Old Republic,
    winning the honor title "Game of the Year" in 2003.
        The Force Unleashed, one of the major games in Star Wars gaming history, was
    released in early September 2008, with mixed receptions and absence of PC
    Version. The game takes place during the gap between Episode III and IV as the
    player assumes the role of the secret apprentice of Darth Vader.
        Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic was one among many Star Wars "expanded
    universe" fanchises. Unlike the others, KotOR set itself in an even further past
    of the timeline, almost four thousands years before, in the Old Republic era.
    Despite the differences from the movies, the game was a great success in the
    history of Star Wars, gaining many awards. Largely, it was BioWare, the
    developer who has a long history of legendary RPGs, has brought the game such
        The game's genre was the classical RPG, using the rule of D20, a modified
    version of Dungeons & Dragons created by the Wizards of the Coast.
        Due to the complication of the genre, BioWare's games are not among the
    popular RPGs in the games community. The players, especially players who like
    quick action games, can barely get on with the game. Often, they stop playing
    after a couple of hours of 'clicking and understand nothing'. This game is
    considered the simplest RPG which uses the rules of Wizards of the Coast, with
    the auto-leveling feature, few classes and the simple visual interface taken
    from the 3rd person shooter games.
        With statistics and some rules from the Star Wars RPG (also created by
    Wizards of the Coast), the game allows the player to experience through a number
    of classes, from the regular soldiers with no Force powers or Lightsaber at all,
    to the powerful Jedi. However, the game was criticised to be not exactly depict
    the universe of Star Wars. An example was the Lightsaber, in the movies is a
    one-hit-kill powerful weapon while in the game, is only counted as a regular
    melee weapon, which require several hits to take down the opponent, with some
    negligible extra features.
        The game bear many resembles to BioWare's RPGs in the past, such as the
    successful series of Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. Beside the nature
    gameplay of classical RPG, many other features such as mathematical questions,
    puzzle games, etc and notably the defending case as a lawyer in the court. The
    character Bastila Shan somewhat was another version of Lady Aribeth of
    Tylmarande, an important character in Neverwinter Nights. The name "Canderous"
    was also used in Baldur's Gate 2 - Shadow of Amn, another success of BioWare
    in the past. The game combined both the Star Wars and "BioWare" game style.
        The second game of the series of released in late 2004 on XBox and early
    2005 on PC with addtitional features, notably the new Influence system (which
    was also later used in Neverwinter Nights). Instead of BioWare, the game is
    developed by Obsidian Entertainment, which was formed from *the remnants of
    the fallen BlackIsle studios*. KotOR2 received less positive reviews in
    compared to the first game.
        The series focuses on the life of Revan, a Dark Lord in the time in when
    the game was set. While the first game tells the story of the Dark Lord at the
    time he lost his mind, the second game reveals some information about the fall
    to dark side of Revan. However, the due to the non-linear story nature of the
    classical RPGs, confirmed Revan's stories and informations by the official
    sources were never truly recognized by fans. Most fan fictions depict a
    contrary main character, mostly the gender.
        Setting in the same universe, KotOR and the movie Original Trilogy bears
    many similarities. In fact, the BioWare's KotOR has taken many ideas from the
    old trilogy to creat the KotOR today. An example was the game's poster. The
    Original Trilogy movies' posters often feature a large figure of the Dark Lord
    Darth Vader at the back as the landscape while Darth Malak, KotOR's antagonist
    and the Dark Lord, also stands as large figure at the back in the game's poster.
    Both of the protagonist's vessels can also be seen. Others' feature including
    important key characters, various other characters and a few ships.
        Similarities and references between KotOR and the original Star Wars.

    _Bounty hunter antagonist         Calo Nord              Boba Fett
         Comment from Mark van Ginkel: You compare the Star Forge and the Death Star
    as the 'ultimate weapons' of their era. But technically, the Star Forge isn't a
    weapon, but a highly sophisticated factory. It has no actual fire power on
    itself, it does however have the ability to channel the dark side of the force
    to drastically lower the resources and time required to produce droids and
    warships. But it is still a factory, not a weapon, and as such it can't really
    be compared to the death star.
        Sorry, let's find another word .... here we go: instrument. I guess that's
        Both Star Wars and KotOR follow a classical motive of story with the hero
    and old wise man. The protagonist assumes the role of both the hero and the
    villain, but only partially in the game. The role of the Jedi Masters is not
    obvious. In some aspects, it was Jolee Bindo who had truly played as the old
    wise man.
        The protagonist of the game, Revan, was a special one. With the role of
    both the Dark Lord and the savior, Revan earned a considerable adoration among
    the community. To find out about the making of Revan, we have to turn back to
    the time of the ancient Darth Vader himself. Many details we see on Revan
    today were from the old Vader. However, to be free from the old generations
    of villains with bulky and disgusting appearanace, Revan is much different,
    also due to the fact that Revan plays the role of both the hero and the
        Similarities between the two Dark Lords.

        With those references, KotOR was considerable *the most Star Wars-ish* of
    all, even more than the Jedi Knight series, which was very close to the movies.
        Today (04/02/07), I have just finished watching the Original Trilogy a few
    hours ago. I myself think that both the Original Trilogy and KotOR have got
    some flaws. The strange thing here is those flaws are almost the same. Many
    elements of KotOR were inspired by the Original Trilogy, so much that BioWare
    even copied the flaws of the movies into their game. This is not a bug, not
    a gameplay problem, but something ACTUALLY can be improved easily with the 21st
    century technology. These flaws were fixed in the Prequel Trilogy as well as
    most other modern Star Wars games. They are:
    _The lightsaber, first of all. If you have played the Jedi Knight series and
    watched the Prequel Trilogy, you'll see how well were the Lightsaber effects
    handled. The lightsabers seemed to appear incorrectly. Even in some scenes,
    the lightsabers were blinking and flickering. In KotOR, they were ugly in my
    opinions. Just two layer of 2D textures crossing into each other.
    _The blaster bolts. In the Prequel Trilogy, they were white with coloured
    outlines. In the Original Trilogy and KotOR, they were pure red and somewhat
        That's all I can think of for now. BioWare's guys must have been crazy
    after watching the Original Trilogy that day.
        Also I realized many similarities in the storyline of the two. Both
    protagonists had a simple life as their roles were seemingly insignificant
    [Tatooine farmboy/Republic new recuit]. Destiny pushed them into meeting with
    important Jedi [Obi-wan Kenobi/Bastila Shan] and they later seeked guidance
    from greater wise masters [Yoda/Members of Jedi Council in Dantooine Academy]
    to become a Jedi. Both of them were first denied but later accepted to be
    trained. Their true identities were revealed shockingly with close relation to
    the antagonist [son/former master and friend] by the antagonist himself. Both
    of the stories ended with massive assault [Battle of Endor/Battle of Rakatan
    Prime] on the enemy space station [Death Star/Star Forge], which earlier
    served as the factor of the storyline. Both assaults were delayed by the
    advantages belonging to the antagonist's force [Energy shield/Battle
    Meditation]. Both celebrations of victory took place on the planet above where
    the battle have just finished.
        And today (10.22.08), I heard a terrible news, probably the worst news ever
    since. BioWare and LucasArts have officially announced the next installment of
    KotOR as a MMO. KotOR series is officially RUINED today. The game takes place
    two hundreds years after the original games and features two main factions:
    Galatic Republic and Sith Empire. There will be free choice of alignment and
    story progression, regardless of the chosen factions.
        Whatever, it's crap. I'll never play that game :-L
        Forgot to mention, its official title was Star Wars: The Old Republic.
     <|    07. Personal view on KotOR2 [pvk]    |>
        I waited three months to play this game. Here goes what I have seen.
        Gameplay: In general, the KotOR and KotOR2 have identical game mechanics.
    However, KotOR2 expanded some limits of KotOR with additional features. Max
    level cap is now 30 instead of 20. The *alchemy system*, which is used to create
    additional items from components is added. The game also provide additional 6
    prestige classes which is determined by alignment and profession. Each character
    now has two weapon slots, which can be swapped instantly during the game with a
    hotkey. A brand new feature is the Influence system, which determine NPC party
    members' reaction to your actions. The system is utilized to train certain
    members to become Jedi and discover their backstory. I guess that's pretty much
    to say. The rest of the game is mostly similar to KotOR.
        Sound: First impression: scores. The game scores is also composed by Jeremy
    Soule. However, it's obvious that KotOR2's is much worse. As much as I can
    remember, there is no memorable melody like in KotOR. KotOR2 uses the same
    sound effects from KotOR in which the differences can barely be recognized.
    A different voice cast is used by the game, which is definitely, also with much
    less memorable moments.
        Graphic: Most graphic data seems to be from the first game, too. Some
    additional animations are added. The most notable change you may recognize is
    the new Jedi robe.
        Story: Take place five years after the first game ended. Continue telling
    the stories around Revan and Mandalorian War.
        Gameplay: the most shining aspect of the game. I appreciate every little
    change in this. New max level cap and prestige class bring you a much deeper
    character development. With Influence system, discovering backstory of NPC
    party member is more than just chatting. You need to gain their trust first.
    This also dramatically increase the replay value due to the fact that you cannot
    gain influence from every member of yours at the same time. The so-called
    *alchemy system* might sound good, but in fact it's not as nice as it sounds.
    All you can make is just couple of common items which can be collected and
    bought quite easily in the game. Surely the lab station and workbench didn't
    prove themselves to be very useful. Talking about workbench, you've got many
    more choices for your upgrade. Each slot can now be embedded with different
    items and effects. Especially your lightsaber, now consists of six slots
    instead of three like before. In general, despite the root from the first game
    KotOR2 still managed to prove its gameplay to be a decent one, especially for
    ones those loved KotOR.
         Sound: Somewhat just mediocre. In spite of the participatation of Jeremy
    Soule and large crew of voice cast, you don't get as many memorable moments as
    you did in KotOR. Much worse, that's pretty much I can say.
         Story: Quite intriguing. At least from first to the late mid. No great
    plot twist like KotOR. The ending is just like a punch to my face. Very
    unsatisfactory. Damn Lucas Arts and their time constraining.
         Bugs: This game is filled with bugs. They are terribly annoying.
    Patch from Obsidian seems to have even more bugs. These damn things drastically
    bring the game down.
         Overall: Not really worth all my sufferings. I'm not sure if I'll have
    enough passion to play it the second time. Now I started to see the meaning of
    Team Gizka restoration project.

     <|      09. Contact and Feedback [caf]     |>
        So at last, I made it. Actually, not much change.
        This game is not informative as expected. I didn't found much more about
    Revan. At least not enough to make it a KotOR2 guide. GameFAQs already put in
    on KotOR page anyway.
        Just some updates from my life. It's still terrible as ever, despite the
    fact that I've just had a girlfriend ;) Well, there are still doubts and a lot
    of things for me to worry about. I wonder if it will ever get better 8-|
        Ummm ... just something more. For those of you who have played Fallout 2
    before, imagine that an invisible Pariah Dog is following me everywhere :-L What
    a crap! Any idea how to get rid of it? I have no save game!
        Any grammatical correction, additional information, comments please go to:
        Still the same as everytime: if you can sponsor me to study aboard or
    something like that, just please.
        Life's still bad as it has been.
        Well, that's pretty I can say in this section. That's all.

        My special thanks to:
    _Geogre Lucas: for making Star Wars.
    _BioWare and Obsidian aka Reborn Black Isle: for developing this series and a
    whole bunch of other nice RPGs.

    Star Wars to be in your hands, and for every Star Wars fan in this world, you
    got it???!!

    (That includes Geogre Lucas for making Darth Vader and many more)
