* AuthorsSavingThrow: The setting arose from the 90's series ''ComicBook/TalesOfTheJedi''. The video game came out around the same time as the prequels and hewed to the ShinyLookingSpaceships and "no attachments for Jedi" elements of the films, despite being set only forty years after ''Tales''. Not only was the aesthetic different, the Bastila romance involved "against the Jedi Code" angst and Jolee spoke of a "forbidden" marriage that took place at the same time nobody cared about two Jedi Knights dating. When the comics came out in 2006, they returned somewhat to the UsedFuture look, had Jedi family and attachments, and established that "no romance" was a ''faction'' in the Order that won out in the four decades between ''Tales'' and ''Knights''.

* EvilIsCool: Statement: HK-47 is by far your most evil companion, and yet the silly meatbags love him for it.

* EvilIsCool: Statement: HK-47 is by far your most evil companion, and yet the silly meatbags love him for it. Canderous, to a far lesser extent. His is more the "Lawful Evil" variety, and his OneManArmy stats put him on par with Boba Fett.



** One word: [[OneManArmy Canderous]]. He can regenerate his health, he can take tons of punishment and his marksmanship is devastating. When you first acquire him as a companion, it is best that you let him go on solo and take care all of the problem for you.

There's a ''reason'' Mandos have their reputation!]]
** If you have a high enough repair stat, a fully-upgraded HK-47 has regeneration, awesome stats, and can mow through enemies. The only downside is that you can't use heal spells on him.

** Unpopular opinion, but Kashyyyk is by FAR this troper's least favourite planet. There are only about 10 opportunities for gaining light side or dark side points, the majority of dialogue you'll be seeing aside from Jolee's is Wookieespeak, and there just isn't much to see in the rather plain environment compared to other planets. There's little doubt the planet is a lot simpler than most and honestly just feels like it was shoehorned in due to the gimmick of having a Wookiee party member.

* HypeBacklash / DeaderThanDisco: In recent years, thanks to more developed games from BioWare and its own sequel, ''Knights of the Old Republic'' gets a lot of negative comments commenting on how outdated or simplistic it is.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: As a result of her being a non-hostile Sith (at least at first) with a tragic backstory who provides insight into the philosophy of the dark side, and due to the possibility of redeeming her in a similar manner to Juhani, Yuthura Ban possesses a respectable number of fans. She stands out compared to other [=NPC=]s, with fanart and even a mod to make her a party member.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: When the game out, BioWare was still relatively new to non-isometric gaming and the idea of a ''Star Wars'' RPG set in the franchise's ancient history was novel and exciting. Now, with a more-mature BioWare coming out with better games, and with many other titles, including its own sequel, improving on it in many ways, the original ''Knights of the Old Republic'' can come off as a bog-standard console RPG with bland and simplistic writing to more modern audiences.

* ScrappyMechanic: Whose bright idea was it to make nearly every loot drop completely random, but not the chests or merchants? (See the second game and its almost complete randomization, occasionally giving you some pretty good items from the get-go.
