Fall to the Dark Side in the Hidden Tomb

This is a very cool trick that can allow you to gain some DS points, as well as make you feel as if you are being seduced to the Dark Side in that Hidden Tomb...

1) Enter the Hidden Tomb.
2) Somehow find a vision (either a vision of Malak, the Mandalorians, or Kreia).
3) Purposely lose against the visions (just press B to cancel out of battling, and watch as everyone slash at you endlessly).
4) Watch what happens next.

You stand up, very wounded from the attack of the visions. After "talking" to Kreia, you gain some Dark Side Points.

...So what? Why is this important?

Well, it is a tie-in into some of the EU content which talks about how evil tombs are. You see Exar Kun getting crushed by the rocks, and he is told either to die or to fall to the Dark Side. Exar Kun choosen the Dark Side, because he does not want to die.

And we see the same thing right here. You get attacked by the visions, and "die", only to be resurrected because The Exile give into the will of the Tomb and fell to the DS. This is an awesome tie-in into the fall of Exar Kun (and maybe a hint of the True Sith, since I wonder if the True Sith acutally reside in holocrons and places of learning, and not an empire, per se).

It's a nice content that pretty cool, for a game that is admittingly lacking. It makes the Sith Tombs seems much more scarier and more dangerous. The text states that entering into these tombs leaves one exposed to the Dark Side...and here you are, exposed to the Dark Side, and forced to embrace it.

Note, you have to be killed by the visions, and not by the creatures who reside in the tomb. Those creatures are real, and if you get killed by them, you have to reload.

So that's why you get DS points if you lose against the visions. I like that, well spotted SilentScope001.
