Retcon #1 (and the most egregious, in my opinion) was the (Krea's) claim that the Jedi Council wiped Darth Revan's memories and then gave him a new identity loyal to the Republic, but all statements concerning this in KotOR stated simply that the Jedi Council couldn't RESTORE Revan's personality "since Revan was too dangerous"; to me this implies that Revan's loss of memory was more due to cerebral damage that the turbolaser explosion on the bridge inflicted by Malak's attack before Bastilla saved Revan's life.
I agree that it's a contradiction, It also changes the magnitude of what the Jedi Masters did.
Either they were just taking advantage of an opportunity that presented itself or they completely mind raped Revan. The latter I find to be questionable ethics on the Jedi Council's part.
Regardless this was established before TSL was released so blame Lucasarts/Lucas Licensing for that.

There's nothing fanon about it. There's plenty of evidence in the game to support it. Even Chris Avellone has alluded to it. Again Lucasarts/Lucas Licensing has final say on the matter and they have yet to reveal anything on Kreia's backstory.
The lighsaber quest is only game-play mechanics to try to balance the game. That's why they make you wait to build a lightsaber. Also the PC had no reason to have a lightsaber while exiled.

If it wasn't for the Ultimate Saber Mod, I'd have retired TSL a year ago, and stuck to Jedi Academy.
Maybe you should look into playing a different game instead of enduring such punishment.
