If KotOR is an era in itself, then it would only cover the comics and the two games, and nothing beyond that.

And even then, it's part of the Old Republic Era, which had been the name for the time period even before KotOR was released.

Why, exactly?

Cultures might change things after a few hundred years, but for something as important, iconic and revered as the Jedi Temple they might not.

I haven't see the Egyptians periodically redesign the Pyramids, after all.

Like it or not, Coruscant is the centre of the Republic. It makes sense that the High Council would locate themselves close to the seat of Galactic power so that they can better serve it.

Star Wars is so unrealistic compared to our own universe it doesn't make sense that it must take cues from our own history.
