He wasn't the TOR lead writer. Far from it. In fact, I'm not sure he actually contributed any significant content to the base game, as he was still working on ME2 at the time. I suspect his involvement won't be seen until future major content (major patches/expansions) rolls out in the next 12-18 months.

He was the KOTOR and Mass Effect 1 lead writer, and co-lead writer for ME2 (with Mac Walters).

IIRC He wrote the Jedi knight class story in tOR. He will be missed, as we all know KotOR and its amazing Story is why a majority of us even come here. Hopefully we'll see more great novels now.

Ah, my bad, seems he did work on the JK. Makes sense I guess, given the ties with the Revan novel. Based on all the other classes though, he wouldn't have been the sole writer. Seems they distributed bits of each class to a number of writers from what I have seen/read.
