Good Thread. I'd like it to start on Coruscant. If not that, then Nar Shaddaa.

Yes! I want to start on Coruscant. And then go back to Coruscant later in the game, like Onderon.

I definitely want coruscant to be in the game, but I don't know that I want to start there because usually the first planet is a little boring. Well in TSL it was, I actually liked Taris on K1. I wouldn't mind starting there again in K3.

^ Taris was destroyed though....

I liked Peragus myself. It had the most intense atmosphere in TSL. I also like the idea of Coruscant. You could start in the dingy dangerous depths. The jedi temple would be more like the second planet.

Most definitely Coruscant, but it has to be a long and interesting visit to that planet.

I do want to see Coruscant in K3. The first planet probably wouldn't be so boring to so many people on here if your character starts off with a lightsaber.

The game should start out on korriban for an interesting twist for the storyline. This could be taken in any direction. The game should end on Coruscant after the true sith reveal themselves.

Why Korriban? It's deserted now. Nothing's there but Sith Tombs and dust.

i don't think you should have a saber in the beginning. its a lot better when you build it yourself. the planet you should start out on is someplace remote.

how about this: you start off on Malachor 5, you are a survivor from the Mandalorian Wars and when the planet goes boom (or when it doesn't) you have to steal a Sith fighter and escape the planet, but you have no navicomputer (its broken) and you have to follow the Ebon Hawk to safety and then you meet the exile's companions and decide to help them find the exile and revan and then you find them and fight the real Sith!

So, Jedi, who are you to say what I do is wrong?"

I agree with Henz, I think that you should start out as a young kid or teenager and evebtually they find out that your force sensetive and bring you to the jedi temple. This is all on Coruscant of course.

I don't care what planet it starts on, as long as it's not a dead Peragus. If I have a planet with lots of side quests and some people to talk to and at least 1 party member, if not 2 to run around with, I'll be a happy camper.

Yes I mean in Trayus. Update to my idea: you are a Sith trooper and decide to escape rather than die with your master.

I think that the starting planet should depend on how you structure some things at the beginning of the game...Of course this is all assuming that they continue the story from TSL...I always thought it would be cool to have a start where you are having flashes of visions/voices that are all asking you questions (questions about the way you played TSL - Gender, Alignment of the Exile and Revan, etc.)...the questions would help to determine your starting location and Jedi council members. If you played Light Side you would begin on Coruscant where the NPC's from TSL have reformed the "old" Jedi Council...dark side you would begin on Malachor where the NPC's have formed the "new" Jedi Council...Regardless you awake as a Force Sensitive at either academy and be required to complete tasks before joining the order to prove that you can control the force (now how you define control would depend on your academy). After being accepted into the order you would stay on that first planet to complete your training - which I hope is more interactive this time...rather than choosing a skill and you're a pro I would like to see you choose a basic understanding and have to use that skill to improve your mastery of it (kind of like ES4: Oblivion) - at the end of your training you build your own lightsaber and start some simple quest that snowballs into you vs ??? to save the galaxy...

At least that's what I think would be cool and work to tie into the TSL story.

At least that's what I think would be cool and work to tie into the TSL story.

I completely agree with this idea. Makes the story flow much better with the other two, at least IMHO.



Really though, I just don't want the game to start off with some plot of you searching for Revan or the Exile, it just seems really out of place in the series.

For starters, if you went DS with Revan, I doubt the Republic would want him/her back around to cause more trouble and the Sith would be too worried about maintaining their own control of the galaxy in order to launch an expidition to find Revan.

If you went LS, then wouldn't Carth and Bastila still be following his/her 'orders' (watch after the Republic, and don't follow me)? As opposed to just financing a search into the outer rim for someone who could already be dead anyway? The Republic is about to collapse at the end of TSL, I doubt they'd be able to spare a few Endar Spire/Harbinger type ships to send them out into sure destruction at the cost of Revan's life.


Then there's the exile:

Everyone wants him/her dead. The exchange, the sith, and even the last few jedi... why would they go into the outer rim to bring him/her back? Or even why would they go to the outer rim to make sure their dead? It just doesn't make too much sense.



Also, I would hate to start off with a lightsaber for the sole reason that that would TERRIBLY unbalance the game. Who in their right mind would pick a fight with you on the starting planet if you're packing a lightsaber in your jacket pocket? They'd be cut down before they could even lift a finger to touch you... not how I want to play through my games.


Finally, in TSL we see the fall of the jedi order... I'm curious as to why everyone wants the jedi to just magically reform before the third game. Wouldn't it make the game ten times better if the Jedi are just fighting to survive throughout the game and only at the final boss are they starting to work together? I mean think of it; you start off as a jedi, little guidance, no master, no sense of a moral 'code', and what's worse you have the Exchange after you. Throughout every planet you learn that the Jedi are hated by just about everyone in the galaxy, the Exile is thought to be dead, as well as Revan and nobody cares anymore... It's a really dark time for the Republic.

And then, almost out of the blue, a threat arises which can't be stopped by Republic or Mercenary forces. Even the former sith soldiers are being killed, and the few sith and fewer jedi are being exterminated in the shadows of a crippled republic. Only at the end of the game will you be able to either unite the jedi, or destroy them; rally the sith to your cause, or wipe them from the face of the galaxy. Or even work to have the two groups fight side by side.

Am I the only one who thinks this would be a pretty sweet idea?

I dunno, Since Taris was destroyed I think it should start on Telos. I liked that planet in TSL, so I wouldn't mind starting there. Pluse thats Carth's home world!!!

I for one think Kotor III should start on a starship of some sort in space, which is how virtually everything Star Wars starts, right after the opening text crawl. Otherwise it wouldn't really feel like a Star Wars game.
