Hey, I've got a question concerning the strength attribute; since there are two feats that cause you dexterity modifier to be used for melee attack bonus instead of strength, is strength of any use at all? I don't mean just leaving it at ten, but not putting any points to it at all in the start of the game (8 (-1 modifier)). Would that have any negative effects? Or would it mean nothing with the Finesse feats?

Well, strength would still definite a damage bonus. So at 8 that would mean -1 damage.
Of course, that's kind a peanuts with how much you can update sabers or weapons.

Also, there are a few STR checks in the game, but not many.

Honestly I usually put almost all my points in strength, it helps out a ton in battle. I'd even put a few in it at start if your gonna go with a gunslinger, you'll eventually have to use a melee weapon somewhere.

you know, I've never thought to go gunslinger with my main. a Jedi gun specialist....interesting idea.

I always bring it up to 12 and never go up from there. But I always bring my wisdom up to 18, and my dex 14. so my force powers are very difficult to resist. I always go guardian.

Very fun, use all guns, have your companions do melee. You kind of get away with only using the lightsaber on boss fights. Pretty fun stuff.

In TSL, strength helps a lot in the hand-to-hand situations you'll find yourself in.

Too bad they didn't include a unarmed finesse feat, because I'd take it every time.

I always work on strength for my player and party members, I was able to train everyone but Bao-Dur in my last playthrough and they were all excellent saber weilders, especially Atton who managed Sion without too much trouble (may playthrough before that he didn't fare so well ::)
