But the problem with that in a game is that it lowers someone ambition to want to do the dark side ending, thus making it almost useless. I have no desire to do that ending again now, which defeats the purpose of having it in my opinion.

How did Starkiller get Kota's lightsaber since he gave it to Vader?

I don't know if this was the intention or not, but that's the feeling it gave me.
I never saw Palpatine as someone like you or others have. All we saw from him was Force Lightning and that Luke didn't have his lightsaber to block it, nor did he know how to block it. Besides that, I never saw something from Palpatine that made me think he didn't need a lightsaber, in fact I always assumed he had one as I did with Yoda believe it or not. I know people were like how you were because I remember lots of discussions on whether or not Yoda or Palpatine would have a lightsaber and I would debate that they would. Some people were very bitter because how heated those debates got.

After reading, it seams to me that you prefer Wii over 360. But that is just my opinion.
Depends on my mood. I've probably have put in just as many hours in both games so far.

That's usually a sign that someone liked it and was disappointed because that person wanted more.

Thanks for the compliments guys on my review. I'm glad some people thought it was worth the read.
