This was really an auteur film that is more a Rian Johnson project than even a Star Wars movie tbh.

Every time you call him "MCA" I think of the Beastie Boys, lol.


Yeah, in PS:T his style is less obnoxious since the game is basically just an interactive novel anyway. Though that said I'm not really a fan of PS:T either, I kinda view it the way I view the LOTR books: I appreciate it as something with artistic/literary value, but it's just not my thing personally.

Pretty much, yeah. It irritates and bores me. When you actually dissect it it's always just overly-complex conveyance of really simple concepts. In a Star Wars setting it doubly annoys me because I already really dislike SW stories with too much Force-related mumbo-jumbo.


There's also the fact that he clearly writes a lot of it as one long monologue by the character and breaks it up after the fact with player dialogue options that all just lead to the next monologue segment. Not how you want to write dialogue in an RPG.



















also he uses the phrase "the why of it" way too much and it irks me




EDIT: Relevant. :P (Obligatory languij warning)

Just finished playing KOTOR 2 with the restored content mod for the first time.


It's...definitely an improvement, but it really doesn't totally "fix" the game. The ending has a bit more closure but there's still a lot of "wait, huh?" moments.


Guess that answers my long-standing question of if the issues with the game were more because of the content cutting, or Chris Avellone.
