I think we were all expecting a little too much after the first Kotor. I mean, the story does not even compare. The characters were definitely more fun the second time around (Not having Carth whining all the time is a big plus - but he turns to an admiral?!?!? I guess you have to be a little B*tch to be a big republic general)
I agree that the charactors were more fun... they were much more involved and detailed. Plus all the new skills and powers ruled. Though, I thought the game was way too easy. All those extra powers made the game insanely easy.
I think on the third Kotor (if there's gonna be one) the game should continue on from the last one. Start as a Jedi with everyone on your party already there, and as you go from one planet to another, you can either ditch your existing party members for new ones (I would love to get rid of Atton) or maybe if they don't agree with your alignment, they can revolt against you and you can kill all of them. I don't know, just a thought.
That'd be intersting.
But overall, I say Kotor 2 is a better game "fundamentally" than the first one. But c'mon, the story wasn't even close...Plus Bastilla is the hottest woman in Star Wars, period!
Charactors were well developed, yes but the story line BLEW. It was so incredibly boring. Only thing that gave excitement was all the new powers and the hot female charactors that joined your group. I mean, the gameplay was awesome but they needed better story line. That's what ultimately kept me going full steam on KotOR was finding out the next bits and peices of the story.
