Is there a mod that allows you to stay a soldier/scoundrel/etc? I always found it strange that that was never an option, and I've never found a mod for it, despite it seeming to be a simplistic option. If memory serves, it wouldn't terribly impact dialogue either (In most cases)

You are Revan why wouldn't you become a jedi =p. I mean they want him to find the Star Forge and defeat Malak, I don't think that is gonna help with blasters. Anyway.... no I have not seen one of those mods but in KSE (KotOR Saved Game Editor) you can remove your Light Saber Feats and Force Power feats.

Hehehe... Not to brag but that reminds me of my story. I've never used my lightsaber - that I received from the Jedi Council on Dantooine - except against Juhani. I blastered Darth Malak's 'backside' to bits and defeated the 'power of the Star Forge' with two trusty pistols. I'm sure I'm not alone in this... Good memories! ;)

About what you said, I wondered about that too when I came to that part of the game. I had the feeling one would be able to choose not to land on Dantooine and therefore avoid becoming a Jedi. I really didn't want to wield a lightsaber and use some 'imaginary force' if you catch my drift. I played that part of the game over and over trying to find a way out of it. In the end, after insulting all the Jedi Masters and sounding as uninterested as can be, I had to give up and become a Jedi. It was literally forced onto me! Hence why I chose never to use my lightsaber and Force powers...

You can't really rewrite the game. The story is that for a Jedi - a ex-dark Jedi at that! - so there's no place for a mercenary in Knights of the Old Republic. Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast is a game that focuses more on the mercenary aspects of Star Wars, and the old Dark Forces games are too.

But since it is a roleplaying game in the world of Star Wars, I would have expected more flexibility with your character's fate, and not just a dark side vs. light side conflict.

It doesn't take just a mod though to make that happen. There needs to be a complete game and story rewrite to begin with, so the expectation is just not realistic, sadly.

It's probably those who prefer the Original Trilogy more, for the fact that it wasn't just about Jedi Vs Sith (Round 247,397,601.......) but as much about the non-Jedi or non-Sith. That's why, personally, Republic Commando was a refreshing game. It wasn't a case of taking on the role of some unstoppable Jedi out to save the galaxy single handed, but blasting a messy path of destruction with lots guns and powerful ordnance to save the galaxy. Reminds me of single handedly blasting a path of destruction with lots of guns and ordnance to halt the production of Dark Troopers..... Sometimes you just need a Star Wars experience wherebye you spend as much time (or more) setting off detonators, laying traps, holding the fire button down, than just jumping and waving your lightsaber around. Other times it's as much fun to up a Stormie with Force Grip, and throw him across a big chasm......

AAAAhh there you are!! You finally show your face, you scammer!! Where's my well-deserved cookie!! Oh, oh, and, have you read the Republic Commando novels?? I believe they are by Karen Traviss, Miss Mandalorian, and they are pretty good, quite different to those about Jedi/Sith igniting their flashy pogos everywhere. Not that there's anything wrong with being a gun-slinging pirate, or a Teras Kasi master duking it out with a mechanical arm... but I would trade it for a dull robe and a flashy bat any day!! And oooo Dark Troopers are like so vintage!! I mean, you and I may be the only geezers remembering such times... sigh... Who could forget such hughely pixelated marvels??...

I was thinking the same thing. You can just sell your lightsabers then choose the worst farce powers.:o
