Well an email you got doesn't prove anything to us. As of right now, don't get your hopes up.
Let him get his hopes up. It's free and it's not bothering anyone. I'm all for a 3rd game, from Bioware or anyone who wants to build a new installment.
As for me, i'd love to see a third game that gives you more freedom as opposed to the current structure. Don't get me wrong, i think Kotor and TSL are two of the very best RPG's ever made. It's just that there are certain aspects of the game that still feel scripted and restricted and not as "open ended" as we all might have hoped for.
It would be great to see Kotor 3 pick up 10 or so years after the events from TSL. Not sure about the story, but it would be nice to finally visit the Jedi Temple in Coruscant.
How about this setup:
You start off as a young padawan (12 to 15 yrs old) who's studying the ways of the Jedi at the Jedi Academy in Coruscant. You start off by exploring the entire temple and getting a feel of the basics of the game. How about this too ---> Your start the game off with a LIGHTSABER. Then you interact with various NPC's, learning about events that transpired between the end of TSL and the period you're in. You're then introduced to the LS/DS mechanics via NPC interaction or some side quests. Then you learn of some huge event which basically introduces the main quest/storyline and that somehow, your actions can shape the outcome of these events. Fast forward 5 or 10 yrs later and you are now a fully pledged Jedi Knight (you first select your class). Then from here, you begin your intergalactic adventure. You own a home, you have friends, you earn credits by getting a job (Jedi Security Services anyone?)
Then something happens (Revan's return, Mandalore leading an attack, whatever) and you're forced to join in on a battle happening somewhere in Coruscant. You meet your first party member (a psuedo-Bastilla looking female Jedi). And from here, the adventure continues.
So what do you think? ANybody want to send this off to LucasArts so they can begin building the game?
