I want to start making a SP mod, but before I start, would like to check on a few issues. First, I have heard that it is illegal to switch resources between LucasArts games, to what extent does this apply? I want to use music from JO, and am not sure if that is allowed. Also, I just want to check, I can use all the JA standard resources, right?

Semi-officially Raven is on the record that they don't care about you using their source material between their various games. As for LucasArts, they doesn't seem to care about modded works so you pretty much have a pass to do anything Star Wars related for a mod.

What, so I can use models from KotOR if I can find someone to convert them? Or would Bioware mind me ripping off their models?

I don't know how Bioware feels about such things, sorry.

I'll have to ask them. It certainly gets confusing with all the rights stuff. I mean, the character Revan belongs to Lucas, right? But the model belongs to Bioware, meaning that I can use the character, but not necessarily the model. Is this correct?

yes that is
