Vrook should have been named Master Grant

Vrook is voiced by Ed Asner, who was Mr. Grant on the old Mary Tyler Moore show. Mr. Grant --> Master Grant.

I'd have laughed if they did it, anyway

I would have thought "Master Grant" was hysterical, too. If you all haven't seen The Mary Tyler Moore show, borrow/rent/whatever it and watch it. It's fabulous and funny, if rather dated (came out mid-70's). He did some great work in The Lou Grant Show later on, but it was more of a drama while MTM was comedy.

I found it intriguing that Ed Asner was interested in doing a voiceover for these games--I'm sure the pay was fine, but he had to be interested in the part to do it just the same. It's nice to know SW transcends age. :)

Mr. Grant is the standard gruff heavy-drinking no-nonsense editor figure that Perry White and J Jonah Jameson are like. Just less megalomaniacal.

I'm a journalist and I always wanted a boss like Grant, White or Jameson

I didn't know about that, but it would have gone along pretty well with the Limp Bizkit and Star Trek references in the original Kotor.
