** Here's another: Just what exactly did Revan do to the Jedi that he was kidnapping to places like Dxun, Korriban, and Lehon? You know, the ones he wanted to "break"?

* You can use Force Choke while being armoured, just like Vader.

* You can use Force Choke (but not the ShockAndAwe powers) while being armoured, just like Vader.
* One that stretches to the film era (and possibly puts KOTOR into Disney's continuity); in Film/StarWarsRogueOne it's the ''Taris'' senator, Tynnra Pamlo, arguing loudest that a rebellion against the Empire would be hopeless. Considering what happened when they defied Malak, and the eventual destruction of Alderaan, her argument wasn't without merit.

*** And if they aren't broken, where did they go? Just killed, shoved in a capsule, and used as a power source for the Star Forge?



* So, you decided to be a good guy and help the old, rightful wookie chieftain rise back to power. Finally, a truly independent leader to stop all of slavetrading with the corrupt Czerka Corporation!.. By killing every non-wookie in said corporation's colony. Even though the slave masters got their comeuppance, it shudders to think about what happened to the peaceful personnel and merchants (including optional quest-givers!). Not to mention that Czerka will not be very happy to hear about their old trade partners destroying the colony, and will probably send more troops to get revenge on the wookies - this time fully enslaving the whole tribe instead of trying to buy slaves from the chieftain!

** The fate of the Promised Land is covered by Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic in a quest on Taris. [[spoiler::It didn't end well.]]

** The troopers on Taris upper levels are possibly ''not'' TooDumbToLive and taking care of their own hide. A solo grunt Sith trooper (and maybe two of them, if they're patrolling near each other) might have second thoughts trying to bring in a known ''Jedi'' being escorted by two bodyguards (i.e. Carth and the PlayerCharacter) because the trooper knows s/he'll just get killed. The trooper can call for backup, but that'll alert their superior--and maybe even Darth Malak or Admiral Karath--that something is up, and the price for failure is execution so they'll die anyway after they somehow survive their encounter with the Jedi.

* When you and Carth are ribbing Bastila for being taken prisoner by a gang of ordinary thugs, she insists that she was weakened from using her battle meditation, and the without it, you might not have escaped. She wasn't using her abilities to help the Republic forces on the ship. ''She was using them to ensure that you landed unharmed''. Which you did... in the Upper City, right next to a disused apartment complex that sees only occasional Sith patrols, in easy walking distance from a Republic-sympathizing doctor. With a decorated military vet who's got the skill and experience to keep you alive and hidden, and the innate goodness to take care of your comatose butt for days, despite his misgivings.

*** Adding on to Carth's characterization: his fatherhood is fairly consistent throughout the game. There is one quest in which the son of a wealthy Dantooine man is found dead, and all that his left from his corpse was his diary. The father offers 100 credits to take it off of you. You may either accept it, decline but choose to give it to him anyway, or extort an additional 100 out of it. If the last option is chosen, Carth will get utterly PISSED and berate you for taking advantage of a grieving father. Made all the more reasonable once you learn that he believes his own son to have died.

* There's a conversation or two where Canderous refers to Revan as "he," regardless of the gender you pick. The brilliance? ''Mando'a'' rarely uses gendered pronouns or gender-specific terminology. ''Vod'', for example, translates to "brother," "sister," or "friend" depending on context. Falling back on "he" says more about Basic not being his first language than it does about Revan.

*** A related piece of brilliance . When you hit ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'''s Alderaan level, you learn that Trask Ulgo was a [[BlueBlood very high-ranking]] member of Alderaanian nobility. In particular, his house's [[PlanetOfHats hat]] was [[ProudWarriorRace military service]], and Trask was one of their ''finest'' warriors. Who better to be the handler (and potential assassin) of a mind-wiped Sith Lord?

** How the hell did Sion end up the way he was? And Nihilus?
*** According to Avellone and the tie-in comic, Malachor happened to Nihilus. He's the 'dark side' of what the Exile could have become, embodying the death on that planet rather than overcoming it.
** How many people would have died if Kreia [[spoiler: succeeded at destroying the Force? And would that really make the galaxy a better place?]]
*** Either way you look at it, it's nightmarish. If her hypothesis was correct, [[spoiler: then you just allowed all the horrors of the Empire and the Jedi-Sith wars past this point to exist. Thousands of years of war and billions of lives could've been spared if you didn't stop her.]] If her hypothesis is incorrect, the worst case scenario is this: considering the Force is connected/generated to life, she may have ended up [[spoiler: ''murdering [[OmnicidalManiac EVERY]] living thing in'' '''the entire UNIVERSE'''. This is the kind of death toll ''[[ComicBook/BlackestNight NEKRON]]'' attempted.]]
**** The only people that would have died were the ones who are Force Sensitive, which is fairly rare in the Star Wars universe, and not all of them would have died either, many would have been deafened to the Force instead. What Kreia wanted was to stop the Force from giving visions, bending probability, and so forth so that the Galaxy can take care of itself without some sort of God playing with them like they're chess pieces. Kreia's real flaw is not considering the fact that if The Force is some all knowing, all powerful entity that can do whatever it wants, then she failed long before she ever started, as The Force would never allow her to destroy it anyway, even if it is actually possible to do so.
***** Kreia is also an inveterate liar. She also tells you that her goal was simply to reforge a new Jedi Order, one without the blindness and dependence of the old, and that you and the people you drew to yourself were her tool to do so. Can't help but think she'd be disappointed with the Jedi Order a few thousand years down the road.
