Given the extent of the damage incurred by the jedi civil war, I'd be surprised if TSL had taken a somewhat less murky direction than it did. Rushing it to market did hurt the game, but it's still pretty good nonetheless (despite its many flaws/gaps).

I play dark side more often than not. Rofl.

Seriously, though, I tend to see the game more like reading a book written in the first person rather than me actually doing things. Sometimes I think the story can be more compelling when the protagonist is the bad guy. Though normally I roleplay, and don't have him do random irrational evil things just because he's evil.

When I play light side, I find myself having a hard time putting up with some people. Sometimes it's just more satisfying to chop the guy up.

When I first played KotOR, I was playing very light side up until Malak told said that PC was Revan. Honestly, that moment made me feel very used, and I finished out the game Dark Side. It actually played out very well, seeing as the last planet was Korriban, the perfect place to drag Revan down when he was vulnerable to seduction.

The Sith Lords was pretty Epic for me too- when I played that one, I felt like the Exile was not a good person from the beginning, and he went Dark right away. But the way I played the game, I wound up defending Kunda, or whatever it's called, and Vrook actually lived when I killed all the other Jedi. I felt a little bad when I went to face him at Dantooine and he said "I know what you have done to the others."

I agree that playing DS makes more sense in some situations, but I often feel like playing DS means being a thug in K1 and K2. There are some interesting parts when going DS, but most of them seem to involve ruthless & meaningless killing, which bothers me when I'm attempting to play as I think I would act if it were me.

Yeah, like I said,

I like evil characters to have motives rather than just saying "Give me your credits or you die" to everyone.

Agreed - that's why I have a problem going full DS.

Yeah. The dark side in KOTOR has no character.

Current Game: KOTOR III
I did get very emotional when seeing the tragedies that happened because of acts I took. They weren't real, but I still felt it. I thought the games Kotor and kotor II were better than the movies and I loved some of the fanfics that came from them.

In "Return from Exile" By machievelli, there were times when I cried because of the strength that Visas and the Exile had after she met with the Council. When Visas said that she would protect the exile with her life, she wailed "That's what they said!" That was painful to read and I could almost feel like I was part of the story. Although that's from a fic, but was based off the game.

I also took great satisfaction when I convinced Yuthura Ban to leave the Sith. It makes me smile every time I save her. The story of each game were well done and better than the original trilogy.

Blatant, exaggerated self-glorifying Mary Sue fanboyism? Nδ, not at all!

Yes, indeed the Leviathen hurt. But the nI felt the same way after losing Jan in Dark Forces II, or maybe that was just me worried about how I would survive the freighter crashing.

Losing Jan in Dark Forces II(I think it should actually be JK II) is THE INCENTIVE for me to go DS in the first playthru. I am trashing anything and everything after that scene.

But Kyle deliberately κills Jan in the Dark Side path in Dark Forces II. Seems a little contradictory to me.
