Firstly, just because you can choose your own characters does not mean it is gravitating towards a RPG style. It is just becoming less linear. Back up what you say with proofs. Don't just say it fool.
KOTOR combat is not going to be good, just for those of you who think it will be movie like.
The reason I say this?
There is no combat. You press a sequence of buttons, and watch the battle happen. You don't fight yourself.
