Okay? I never said TLJ gave us nothing. But it did not give us all that much or anything super interesting.

It's taken until the end of today's session for me to realize that I'm not going to be getting a lightsaber for quite a long time. This makes me extremely agitated. I think this is how it feels for a sex addict to go too long without a fix. How is a Star Wars game like this allowed to deprive of you of a lightsaber for so long? This is a grave injustice.

It's true, Kotor 2 takes awhile to give you a lightsaber. I seem to recall building mine after Nar Shaddaa (always my first planet), but I could be mistaken. But, on the flip side, non-lightsaber weapons are way more useful than in the first game. And you get Force powers right from the get go. No trying to best Starkiller at level 2 here. Out of curiosity, what order are you doing the planets?

I think its the worst of the new movies. 2/3rds boring, awesome last third, only 2 memorable characters, bland as fuck acting, horrible fucking timing.

It's the least 'offensive' of the new movies because even if you're a huge Kyle Katarn fan like me you're not going to grumbling about how it fucked up the lore or did this or that wrong.

Honestly there should have been like a few weeks gap between R1 and 4. Makes the Star Wars feel claustrophobic. Should have had the plans taken from the fleet and moved around until eventually ending up on Leia's ship. Having Leia be at that suicide mission makes no sense.

It certainly makes the crew’s protests a little nonsensical in retrospect.

Probably Dantooine first. Makes sense to go there for lightsaber and Jedi stuff, I think. After that, I have no idea.

Skip peragus mod gives you a lightsaber.
Makes sense they'd hold off on giving you one since even a low upgrade lightsaber makes the game trivial.

I'd recommend Nar Shaddaa or Onderon first/second. Those are the planets where you fill out your party, and (on Nar Shadaa) unlock Atton's Jedi class. Also, you can get Canderous again.

I don't like it much either, though it is my favorite Disney era film. Still, I wouldn't say those who enjoy it, or at least enjoy it more than me, are lacking in sense.

Unless the movies devolve into complete objective shit and are worse than the prequels I will watch new Star Wars movies. Solo was the only one I didn't see in theaters, not my fault that going to the theater is expensive and the movie came out like a week after TLJ.

I didn't like Rogue One. I thought it had pretty bland characters who I couldn't connect with, had some really pathetic fan service (AT-AT walkers on the island that they're defending makes no sense. They're attacking vehicles), and had a pointless story that didn't need to be told (Spoiler, they get the plans and then the Death Star dies)

A new location doesn't really count as a new direction, and that's my real problem. The OT had a clear point: Luke Skywalker and the Rebellion on their heroic journey against the Empire. The Prequels, while I didn't like them, had something of a point: How Anakin became Darth Vader. I can't really find any point in the Sequel trilogy. They're really just re-telling the Tiny Plucky Rebellion/Resistance/Whatever against the Empire/First Order, and that's what it still is.

See, I'm going because even though I know it's likely to be a rehash of RotJ due to being done by Abrams, at least I know it's not going to spit in my face because Rian Johnson isn't involved.
