How would you transcribe KotoR?

If you wanted to write down the script from KotoR, how would you do it? In more linear games it's easy, you'd just write down what happens and who says what. But with a game like this, with branching dialogue and planets you can go to in whatever order you want, how would you transcribe it?

One way I thought it might be possible is to give short codes after each choice, and the reader uses the search function of whatever program they're using to find where to continue, like in many of the faqs on GameFAQs.com. Here's what the prologue from the game would be like this way:
Show spoiler

What do you think? Would this work for a script of the rest of the game, too?

There are tons of fics along the lines of what you're describing, including mine. Warning to the wise: female Revans outnumber male ones five to one. Female Exiles "only" outnumber male ones three to one.
