While the armor in the comic seems to be recycled (not surprised at all considering Star Wars comics borrow off of each other all the time), at least the game armor does not seem to be as much.
Still parallels between, but the armor in the game is just stylized enough to have a unique flavor. Still would have preferred the KOTOR 1 look, but I can take what they give me. It's still a step up from most MMO's.
But yes, whoever is writing this comic needs to get their head out of the sand.
