Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic 2 Hits Steam, Crappy Ending And All

Star Wars fans have another reason to revisit a galaxy far, far away today. Knights of the Old Republic 2, the single-player RPG by Obsidian Entertainment, is now available through Steam for $9.99.

Knights of the Old Republic 2 is set five years after KOTOR. The game introduces a new protagonist, an exile from the Jedi Order. The Exile has been cut off from the Force and works to regain their ability to wield it. They must also fight a dark force that threatens the ailing Republic.

The storyline is actually better than the original KOTOR in my opinion. It makes you question the duties of a Jedi more and gives you an understanding of why someone would really fall to the Dark Side. This is a feat that most Star Wars stores in films, games, and so forth never came close to accomplishing.

KOTOR2 has one big flaw that prevents it from being a classic, though: it's incomplete. The development of the game was rushed and the ending is an abrupt, disjointed mess. A lot of content, including key cutscenes and an entire playable area, were cut so that the game would ship.

Fortunately, there's a way to fix this problem.. A fan-made modification to the game, called The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM), puts the cut content back into the campaign. It also fixes over a thousand bugs never addressed by the official patches. You can download the mod here.
