As a fan of the original trilogy I just hate what Star Wars has become and like everyone I've watched those Redlettermedia reviews of the prequels and agreed with them almost 100%. I hate how not only does this game live up to the Star Wars cliches but also the Bioware ones. I hate how ever cutscene is so static in typical Bioware fashion but also the prequels. I really do not get why every cutscence, if you can call them that always involves shot reverse shot, two static characters talking to each other and only moving their hands or swaying side to side. If you watch a GTA 4 cutscene it's all animted, there is a lot of motion and movement, even if it is based in one room. Then you watch anything from Bioware and it is always the same thing.
I hate how now Star Wars is Black/Red = Sith and Brown/Green/Blue is Jedi.... when are these conventions followed in real life? Evil people can look like you or me, they don't wear uniform because they kill people on a whim. I can forgive the original trilogy for being the first and for trying to set an iconic look, however now they've become cliches.
I hate how every class is based on some Star Wars character, like why couldn't they come up with anything of their own. Those CGI trailers were some of the worst things I've ever seen, they aren't Star Wars, they're about throwing as much crap on screen at once. Every character that was in them says some line another character from the films has said and is based 100% on them. Like why couldn't Bioware come up with something of their own? I'd much prefer they split a single event over the 3 or 4 CGI trailers they made. You can always remember each iconic moment in the original Trilogy, even if it seemed like not a lot was going on, it was the chaarcters that mattered and made people fall in love with the movies. Yet can you remember anything from the prequels? It's all one generic poorly written and directed mess where I cannot care about anyone.
Why has this whole notion of Jedi not being able to have emotions come from and this whole Jedi school bullshit come from? It was kool when it was something magical and unpredictable in the original Trilogy, yet in all the new stuff it's established you must be some emotionless robot and Jedi might as well be manufactured. No wonder why people always choose to be on the side of the Sith in this game, they're the ones that show emotion in all of the writing, in the Jedi stuff it's all boring like being in a hospital or something.
Bioware have done nothing but create a Prequel Star Wars, just a load of cliche bullshit that just isn't fun to play through. I do not care about any characters, the story or anything, I hate how they've turned everything into cliches. Like when watching the redlettermedia review he says "lightning coming out of your hands is when you've achieved level 12 Sith Status"...... it's so true. No Jedi or Sith in this game have their own personality, it's abilities you must learn and everyone must be the same. At least in SWG you could mix and match and be what you wanted to be. You could be a Jedi who just did crafting if you wanted lol....
I don't think what Bioware has done is good at all, from the poor gameplay aside, their story telling is crap, it has always been crap and seems to only be getting worse. I'll never understand why their boring wooden characters that never animate in cutscences are so loved. I mean I cannot tell you a single thing about Shepard or any of the characters in Mass Effect, i couldn't care about any of them. Every time you spoke to someone it felt like they were tyring to always make it epic and over the top. I mean I had 3 lines of dialogue and suddenly my character could be in love with another, saying the most cheesy lines ever and having the worst smile animation. I just hate how everything has to be so epic and over the top like every mission involves saving someones life or something.
For me Bioware are not good game makers or story tellers and all they did with Star Wars is create more bullshit to go with the rest that.
