Began KOTOR finally yesterday evening. Nearly 10 years too late.

What immediately struck me that I was right : KOTOR looks in every was like a (A)D&D game - regarding the underlying mechanics.

Almost 10 years ago I had already written that in an opinion article ("Alrik's Different Angle") for RPGDot - the the RPGCodex destroyed me for that.

It was even so hard that I decided to withdraw from RPGDot completely so that they would be kept out of the shooting fire that was directed at me.

So, almost 10 years later I repeat what I said back then : Regarding game mechanics, Star Wars has become nothing but another (A)D&D realm.

And, besides, the controls look ugly to me, too. They have really nothing elegant with them.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
