I got the satisfaction of tying up a loose end.
I'm the type of person who cheats routinely at KOTOR and its sequel; I find that giving myself items, money, and stats for free doesn't take anything away from the game. Therefore, I don't care about how much XP and the like I get for doing things. After all, the combat is forgettable and balance is out of whack. Storyline is what I play KOTOR for, so I lose nothing by making the intermissions between the plots and subplots shorter and less tedious.
