Newb to RPGs-combat confusion

Hi all,

Can someone please explain how real-time turn-based combat works in the first KOTOR? I've read the manual and tried to find explanations online, but I still do not understand enough to start playing the game with confidence.

My main question is, if I engage an enemy and select an attack/action, is the game automatically using that same action for every turn until I change it. I can understand if the game automatically paused and waited for me to confirm I wanted to use the same action. But as it stands, the turns seem to happen so fast, I can barely tell when they start and stop. It makes sense that the devs were going for a more interesting, seamless fight animation, but I don't see how a novice like myself could play without pausing every turn. Maybe someone can help me understand what's going on.

Thanks tremendously!
SP
