Actaully, now that I think about it, LEGO Star Wars isn't bad, but it
still wouldn't be the best. I still go with the FACT that SWKOTOR was
bad. It has an okay story, but the way you fight and move around is
terrible. It is almost as if the charcter in the game is having all
the fun and your just watching, like a movie. The fun about a game is
that you get to control the character and fight as if you were the
person or if it is a strategy game. SWKOTOR is neither. Actually, the
main aspect of proof that a game is good is if many people talk about
it. Lego Star Wars 1 and 2 are good, Halos 1, 2, and 3 are good, COD4
is good, etc. SWKOTOR 1 and 2 are bad. No one even refers to them at
all. It says it was the game of the year, but I highly doubt it. Also,
when I play it, it continously freezes. It takes a lot of space to
install. It is hard to win without cheats and it keeps repeating
things. You can only fly to about 6 different places. I mean, come on,
is there only 6 planets before the Empire? What is with everybody
using double bladed lightsabers anyway? I bought the game for $20,
what a complete waste of money. The manual looks interesting, but
that's about it.
Your assessment of KOTOR is quite accurate. The interface was clunky
as hell. The problem with it, in my opinion, is that they took a D&D
board game approach to a video game that is driven by action. The two
things are at odds with each other. How many people, while playing a
video game, want to stop and deal with a complex and unnecessary point
You're absolutely right when you say it doesn't feel like you're
playing as the character. They took a great story and then distanced
the player from the character he's supposed to be playing as.
It really was an engaging story. While it didn't freeze up on me, the
sound files were often corrupted and distorted, which was very
annoying. I never finished KOTOR 1 even though I was very near the
