well I was like you at first, but once I got into games like that I liked it. KOTOR is one of the best games to excist, and you should know that it has freedom when you're fighting, it's not really like you think. You can choose to move freely in battles.
I'd recommend it, but there's not a single thing in this world that everybody likes, so I can't guarantee you will like it.
It has lots of quests and a great story, and just wait for the coolest part of the game... you'll find something surprising out. You'll probably beat it atleast two times, there's just so much to do. Some people are on their 9th time through the game, and they still find new things to do, new conversations and quests to open up, or new items, etc.
