Knights of the New Republic

Something thats been on my mind the last couple of days.
Would be cool with a spinoff kotor game that takes place during the new republic time-line, after Return of the Jedi.
You should start the game as a padawan, choose what you wanna advance in and then first train in the academy and eventually be asigned a Jedi Master, you should be able to choose and select a master that fits the class you wanna progress in, sentinel, guardian etc
After this the main story starts and you have to deal with trade disputes, investigate a murder etc etc etc the posibilites are endless.
After you become a Knight you should be able to take on a padawan of your own and train him/her as you advance to the more prestigious classes like jedi master, weapons master, whatchman etc
The whole idea of the game is that instead of having 3 characters in your party you should in this game only have 2, you and your master/padawan.
Also if you want after you become knight you should be able to turn to the dark side with your padwan.
What do you guys think? Being a true Jedi is something we havent seen in other SW games, instead of just being an unstoppable killing machine you should have other duties, and the best solution shouldn't always have to be to grab your LS and start exterminating everyone in sight.
Of course you need a plot, but with the time-line you would alot to choose from. If you go sith you should be able to take controll of the remnant empire forces and launch an assualt upon the new republic and as a jedi you should stop the remnant empire forces and eventually make peace with them.
Some missions you could also have Skywalker join you, that would be very interesting indeed...

I REALLY like that idea of a Master/Apprentice only party. Just like Obi-Wan and Anakin.

And I wouldn't mind if it were set in the NJO era. Desperate times make for a good story.

you see?? it wouldn't be too awfully difficult to make an NJO game thats actually good, now would it??

and yes, i am refering to JO and JA.


See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind

Neither of those was really NJO... although JA was close. And JO was awesome, if you're willing to overlook the dated Q3 engine.

Sometimes, there comes a point when things stop evolving or changing. It reaches equilibrium. Like technology.
Otherwise, don't ask, don't tell...I guess.

...I have no idea.

It is unlikely they will make an NJO game, since it is so polarizing among fans. Why would they limit their customer base?

And the problem with the New Republic is there is so much canon material they'd have to work around. There just isn't much room left for epic, galaxy spanning stories. That's why the devs went with the Old Republic in the first place...
