D20 system?

Is KOTOR going to use a Baldur's Gate style D2O rpg system?

If it does, I feel that the micromanagement I had to use to play those games will SERIOUSLY detract from both the 'Star Wars' feel, as well as the fun from the game.

well, the pen&paper SW rpg also uses the D20 rules, and to me it feels very SW-ish...

but the rules are very different from BG, which used the old rules...

Is this the new or old SW Pen 'n' paper RPG?

I don't mind the new one, and haven't played the older one.

Wasn't the core rulebook for the current one released last year?

I'm not going to buy the core rules until after Ep3 when they no doubt re-release it yet again.
