Thus, I am unaffected by this new direction that they've taken Revan's story in.
I've grown to appreciate Malak more since my first playthrough of KotOR, but I always thought he was kind of weak as a Lord of the Sith-type enemy. Revan's mystery is what makes him appealing to a lot of people. That might be stripped away if we learn too much about his fate in TOR, similar to Boba Fett when we all found out he's just a clone.

Also, just comparing Revan and Malak, based on the story we do learn, Revan moved and inspired masses of people (Jedi included) to fight for his cause - Malak just took the reins from him with the sneak attack, and then failed at Revan's hand again later.
