Let me pork Carth as a dude, and I'll be happy.

I voted causiously optimistic, but after these twitter screenshots I definitely have a bad feeling about this.

My favorite character is ahsoka tano so disney can piss off. We just don't like Mary sues and pushed agendas.

Don't really care, to be honest. Nostalgia doesn't have much power over me, these days, as much as I have played the og game to bits.
And hiring another writer to reinvent the wheel? Mmmmmmmmmmmmmh… sounds questionable.

Maybe the modern day updating will be inserting “Toxic” or “Do better” into each dialogue tree depending on your decisions.

Revan was canonically a man and needs to stay that way. If not, he and Bastilla can’t have a child so Satele can’t be born eventually. Sorry guys but two chicks can’t get each other pregnant.

Look, if they didn't want to make it into a sequel trilogy like version of KOTOR with messages suffocating the story, they wouldn't have bothered bringing in Maggs- whatever her name is. I'm sure as hell someone like Disney has so many other people at their disposal far better than what she can dish out. So why her? What's the game plan? They did this for a reason, let's hope it's done so it just gets the SJWs hyped for such a "daring" person being part of something so great, yet she doesn't actually to much of anything, that she's there just to attract Twitter and get more publicity.

Tweaking the dialouge…
Im wondering how they are going to handle HK47…
Do the words 'master' and "meatbag' pass todays censorship?
I mean, HK47 is supposed to be hilariously infuriating…

I disagree with a whole lot of what Maggs says and thinks. However, she is only one member of what I imagine is a fairly large team. And I wouldn’t want someone to be fired because their politics are “wrong”. I will say that I hope that her involvement is comparably minor, and that I don’t think the game needs a whole lot of rewriting. Maybe the dialogue for the characters’ whose original actors have unfortunately left us to make the new ones stand out a little more. I am cautiously optimistic about this project and I want to remain hopeful. So, I will need more information before I can say whether I’m truly pumped for this or not.

Kinda wish the diversity crowd could just make their own content for a change, and not ruin everyone else's. It's like Tolkien said. Evil can't create. It can only corrupt.

One things for sure, if I try to romance Bastila as male Revan, and I get told some bullshit about "toxic masculinity" or some other such garbage, words cannot describe the anger which will overcome me. Knights is easily my favorite Star Wars story ever, and if they fuck this up, I don't know if I'll ever be able to forgive them.

Said before but I just want to point out to anyone thinking Sam Maggs is lead writer, she’s not. Courtney Woods is listed as Lead Writer at Aspyr, she wrote the story for Knights of the Fallen Empire. Sam Maggs wrote on her LinkedIn that she is a writing consultant with Aspyr, so her say in what gets put in the remake will likely be small

I’m just excited for when they add an extreme feminist that beats everyone to a pulp using girl power and period blood. Sadly this wouldn’t surprise me :(. I want to be excited but after the sequels I’ve lost all faith!!!

As long as Sam Maggs is attached to it, I will NOT be pre-ordering it and I will maintain the assumption it'll be absolute woke garbage.
That way my hopes can't be crushed and I can only be either vindicated for being right all along or positively surprised by the end result.

They’ll find a way to make HK-47 a leftist SJW

The story is the closest thing to perfect as you can get however some of the dialogue isn't the best still one of my favorite games however its age unfortunately shows so I hope your right and that its a few dialogue tweaks and little changes here and there i honestly can't wait for the game however I'm terrified that it will just be another Last Of Us Part 2 instead of a Ghost Of Tsushima at the same time i heard a rumor from a YouTube channel can't remember witch that they brought some of the people from Ghost Of Tsushima to help with the game and that gives me hope that at the very least the Lightsaber combat will be the best in a generation

I want modern gameplay with the exact same voice acting and sound effects.

Honestly I don't see how this stereotype came about we didn't hate Ray because she was a woman we hated her because she was a bad character that just copied what Luke and Anakin did and not well at that there are so many strong female characters in Star wars beloved by the fan base bo Catan Sabine wren ahsoka Tana Haira Shakti ventress need I go on

So because this is my favorite game of all time, and I somehow missed the poll, I wanted to toss in my two cents:

I am and likely will be cautiously optimistic about this game. Seeing Revan, Bastilla, HK, Jolee, and even Carth brought to the new hardware standards of the industry will be a dream! And while I do want them to see this game faithfully updated, I do want to try and look for good reasons for who they're bringing in, however few there are.

Honestly, I don't see why they would want to try and diversify this game, if they even are. But if they are going to expand portions of the game or maps adding in some npc's and side quests would be required. I'm curious how that will affect the leveling and balancing but they have also said they're updating the game play so who knows there.

But, and I say this with every possible grain of salt, and a massive SPOILER WARNING for the few who haven't played this game, so skip this paragraph if you haven't, but the ending could use some branching if they wanted to try. I loved the paragon Jedi or dark lord of the Sith paths but for a game that prided itself on it choice driven story those are pretty narrow choices for the ending. And having at least a grey path or a few other ideas, or maybe a prologue section would be interesting.

That said, the original was and still is a masterpiece and the game devs have set an incredibly high bar for themselves to remake it well. Is it possible? Yes. But it has to be done right and with respect to the fans who have loved and pleaded for this to be successful. Pandering to a crowd who has likely never even heard of this game until last week is a path to greed and money. And to anyone who has played this series, we all know what path that is…

They are trying to fix something that isn't broken. The story is not something the game would need to change.

Am I the only one who when they think of diversity in Star Wars they think about having more aliens, not the random ass aliens Disney has been pulling out of their ass (most of the aliens you see in the sequels and mando don't exist) just so they don't have to use any aliens Lucas has made. I sure there's a fricken encyclopedia about the mass multitude of aliens species sentient or non sentient that being wild animals/monsters. Sure I'd love to see more races in general since before Disney the only two black people we saw on the big screen was Lando and Mace. But at it in without making a big deal about it, please? Like it was always there.
