Posted 23 February 2013, at and the Coruscant Entertainment Center in my The Critic's Two Cents. I was posting directly to the actual story threads, but my computer went down for the second time in six months with a virus in June of 2012. Then in November kotorfanmedia went down for reasons unknown, so I was stymied in my attempts to post the reviews. I had waited for it to revive, but you on deserve your reviews.
Pre Mandalorian wars: Revan begins to gather her followers
The Primary problem is that you have Revan setting up the equivalent of the War between the States without considering that such an option leaves no retreat. As I pointed out in a previous review, the War began with a lot of disagreement, but hadn't reached wartime status yet. Historically, when the Southern cadets decided to leave West Point they were ushered out with the band playing 'Dixie' instead of being arrested. If the Southerners had gone as far as you describe the Union would have slapped them down long before they joined the war.

your story of a man walking up and down the beaches to inspire troops is also shown by George S. Patton in WWII at the invasion of sicily.

Yah baby! Ok, I'm on board here. The Revan backstory is choice.

Great battle sequences! Laughed at Jolee's 600 excursions at the Starmap. I'm surprised it didn't get annoyed and sic a few droids after him. ;-)

Wee.. I kind of like it how you have Aerin remember some things every now and then, also I never remember the thing about the Hutt Soup, though on the other hand I never did manage to unlock very much of HK's memory.

Hey, I'm so glad you did something to make Zaalbar a more rounded character.
I'm so glad Calo got his.

This has a way of bringing out the way in which Ravan turned from the order.

You know... until I saw that he had a translator on his neck, while reading this chapter, I was going to respond as follows:
Chuundar speaks basic as his norm? It was my understanding that Wookies were unable to speak anything but Shryiwook.
Well, I'd have added more, but then I saw how you used what you had indicated above, and it worked well, and even made sense. All in all, still brilliant, keep it coming on the 3rd one so it can be near done when I get to that point. Hate waiting too long on writing this good. I mean... it is just cruel and inhumane!
Force-fed tutelage... lol, I love it.

And so we come to the end of Book 2...
I wonder if the neural profile only matched when Aerin got mad?
“Statement: That’s more like it, meatbag. Git some,” - ROTFL!
Okay, I was a little confused as how a scanner could detect the Force? Especially from a dead Dark Jedi?
I keep wondering how Aerin will come out...she keeps having these visions yet it so determined to sacrifice herself for the 'greater good'...
Two down, one more Book to go!
| PadawanMage chapter 22 . 2/22/2005
Great battle at the Chief's Village...you definitely can flesh out something that lasts only a few minutes in the game...
Okay, who's the Sith with sliver armor in Aerin's vision? I can't remember a character like that...
Okay, when I read the passage of Bacca's blade being reforged, I couldn't help of the scene from Return of the King when a similar blade was remade...
Gah! Bastila, give those two crazy kids a moment, will ya?
| PadawanMage chapter 21 . 2/22/2005
Please tell me such beauracratic nonsense really didn't happen in real wars?
Nice look into Revan's first taste of combat...not to mention Saul's rise to power.
| PadawanMage chapter 20 . 2/22/2005
Don't you hate it when you run out of bullets? ;-)
Komad'd dead? aw, man...
HK loves napalm so much, I'm surprised he doesn't say how much he loves the smell in the morning. ;-)
| PadawanMage chapter 19 . 2/22/2005
Poor Bastila...to hear her past best friend now ask to be killed if she fell to the Dark Side...
And I'm loathing Ergot more and more...
Wow, Bastila's first time...getting turned on?
So, Ergot's name is Haman, huh? And how high will *he* hang, I wonder?
And Juhani's starting to remember something, huh?
| PadawanMage chapter 18 . 2/21/2005
Now I wonder why Juhani doesn't remember Revan when she looked at Aerin? Was it too traumatic an experience?
Ironic that no matter how hard Aerin tries to change things, by force sometimes, it doesn't last long.
