Who actually liked the JKA storyline?

It was kind of "meh".

It had high points and low points, but to me it seemed kind of cliched and the villains were boring. Not to mention horrid male-pc voice acting.

The gameplay was fun enough to keep me interested though.

Haha in all honesty I haven't played through all of it, but just last week I started again, and now I'm on the mission to save Rosh from captivity.

The gameplay is fricken amazing, and sure the storyline doesn't compare to KotOR's, but yeah, I like it.

It was meh for me. While JA was fine, I just didn't really care about the story. The only thing that got to me was Rosh. Die, Rosh.

Eh, it was alright, kinda pointless. Guess I'll go with "meh."

It was quite good, though the Dark/light side choice sucked. It would have been cool if you didn't get to choose and the path you take is Dependant on your actions throughout the rest of the game. For example how many people you killed when you didn't have to. how many people you tortured with lightning. Mind you, most people would have never seen the light ending if that was the case.

The storyline was pretty good. Better than the prequels, at any rate. Not that that's saying much.

The light/dark choice was too isolated and abrupt, as Hill stated. However, it was still a nice moment, not least because Rosh was so annoying that it was genuinely tempting to kill him and turn to the dark side.

So I for one felt a genuine internal conflict raging before I finally spared the oik. Cut it how you like, that's good drama. ;)

It was "meh." But I still will install it every once in a while just to lighting a bunch of stormies, or force choke a jedi off a platform into lava, etc., etc.

TBH I bought it for the multiplayer :p

I thought thought the story was ok (though quite inferior to Jedi Outcast) and the gameplay was great. I still can't get over the fact that the female Jaden is voice-acted by Jennifer Hale (Bastila, KotOR). She doesn't sound at all the same. The worst thing about the game is Jaden's lines.

"That's Jedi KNIGHT, Ragnos"

That's just awful. He's so immature.

I only wish I could have had the option to kill Rosh, but remain on the light. He was just so frickin annoying!

I thought that the main thing wrong with the prequels was the dialogue. The actual story is excellent, in my opinion. Jedi Academy's story is sort of like a throwaway because it forks into two sections. The story isn't as much about Kyle as it is about his Apprentice. Since the player essentially makes the character, there is little solid ground upon which to ubild upon, in terms of character development, since the engine still runs in tradition Q3/JO mode and not the marvelous complexity of the KotOR series, character development and dialogue are extremely limited.

Woo hoo, I never played it except for the first 2 levels.... I hated it... well, then again that was 2006 and I was busy playing games like HL2 with much better graphix...

Wait. You're on the Jedi Knight forums, and you never played JKA until 2006?

...

Alright, time to take you out back and beat you with the hose.

'meh' is too much credit, id say more like 'blarg'.

You use the whip for that. The hose is for other things.

IMO, the storyline was much worse than what I had expected. Luckily, the gameplay saved the game.

Not very good storyline. The missions all felt pretty disconnected from each other and the concept fighting force-enhanced warriors felt too similar to JO. Overall, I felt it was pretty boring and childish in areas.

I thought it was good when I played at first... (2003... whoa... 4 years ago!) but I've played much better now.

The story started decently, then... well, the missions didn't have much to do with the story.

Well, I don't mind the disconnected storyline sometimes, but well. The character have absolutely NO PERSONALITY WHATSOEVER.

I mean, Kyle have a personality, we know his style. But Jaden/ I mean, all we know is that he somehow constructs his own saber, thats it. nope. nothing.

It feels like basically a hotch-potch of things you can do when you are bored. And seriously, even without the storymode you don't miss out much. Same goes for the rest of the support characters either. Kyle have a really minor part in the story. Luke is there only for cameo. Tiv her appearance is so not-it even as she is the supposed final boss. Alora was supposed to be a cool arch rival, but too bad there is not enough of her in action. Rosh is just, gosh he has the whole you-know-i-will-go-darkside-and-let-you-turn-me-back syndrome written on his forhead from the first time you see him.
