But by that token you could also lump in Gothic, Divine Divinity, KoTOR, Mass Effect, Company of Heroes and so on … since they are all 'action games'.

My point is that TFU is much more 'God of War meets Star Wars' than 'JK for next-gen'. As I mentioned, being a traditional FPS and a console-centric action game are two very different things in terms of the way the action happens.

You could, but then you'd REALLY be stretching.

Some versions of DOSBOX have different graphics filters, I heard the "Daum Café" version has, for example, but I'm no expert on this.

Knights of the Old Republic is not an actiongame.

I dunno … I always played it on the Mac since that is the 'enhanced' version. But since the Mac switch to Intel chips, it isn't supported. I'll have to check it out.
