While I imagine this launcher isn't too in-depth with completely new graphics (looks like some very tasteful splices) it is quite easy on the eyes, and very fitting with the them of KotOR2. I always did like that image of Nihilus and Atris. The images are all very well blended, making it seem very professional. The only downer is the black outline around the buttons, but it's really not that noticible and I know from experience it's almost (if not completely) impossible to get any transparency in the buttons.
The author boasts of new sounds added, and this is true. Only click and background sounds have been added, however. Now normally I'd love anything with Duel of the Fates in the background (and kudos for not adding the entire song), but for some reason it just doesn't really fit here. Don't get me wrong. Duel of the Fates is an awesome song. It just shouldn't be in any Knights of the Old Republic launcher, game, or other media. It is a song of the prequels, and there it should stay. That said, it's not bad or anything, just my personal preferences which I know a lot of you will not share, so give it a download now if you're looking for a tastefully done and very complete KotOR2 launcher. :)
