KoTOR became a legend ever since it came out. It's the greatest role-playing experience I ever had. The greatness of KoTOR is the fact that it's so special that it makes the not-so-special story one of the greatest ones about that galaxy far, far away... The basic plot is really nothing special. (There is a Dark Lord, he is evil and all, and you, the common nobody have to stop him!) But it works out SO well, and there are so many twists in the plot... it's hard to describe. So you start off as a common trooper from the Republic Fleet, and you have to save a young Jedi (the beautiful Bastila). But before you know what's going on, you are surrounded with allies and chased around by the Sith. And since 80% of the Star Wars protagonists are Force-Sensitive, you quickly join the ranks of the Jedi Knights as well. Now you have to discover how the hack did the Sith get such a huge fleet in a very short time. You face countless enemies with barely a handful of allies, visit well-known worlds like Tatooine, and even worlds never seen before(like Manaan). 80% of the game is conversation with others, and GOD it's so good. You can choose between several dialogue options. Based on your comments and actions, you gain light-and dark side points. These determine what kind of person you are. You can be a Jedi goody-goody or a Sith conqueror in the end, it's completely up to you. Almost all the quests can be approached in different ways(like you can either negotiate with the Sand People or slay them all) so there is plenty of replay value. The only thing I didn' like in the game is Carth crying around like a wussy. Legendary soldier my.... But the game is still the best SW game around.
