KotOR - Retrospective Review
Noah Caldwell-Gervais looks back at the KotOR series:
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 Vs. Joseph Campbellloading...
This is a focused retrospective and critique of both of the older Knights of the Old Republic CRPGs from Bioware and Obsidian. It looks to how they interface with the Monomyth template as originally laid down in 1949 by Joseph Campbell in The Hero With a Thousand Faces, one game conforming exactly to it and the next game violently rejecting the entire premise. It also discusses how Campbell's monomyth influenced the philosophies of the Jedi and Sith more than George Lucas might care to admit. Spoilers throughout.
