Wha-a-a-at? Mach hasn't played on the Dark Side?
You need to! It's wicked fun (well, most of the time - sometimes it made me want to cry) and yields some terrific story fodder. The "snapshot" I wrote actually happens in-game if you kill the apartment owner on Citadel Station while Atton's in your party. I just took that moment and ran with it.
Btw, thanks for the review!
