Bioware just keeps making me regret giving up Star Wars. Their latest The Old Republic
trailer showcases the Sith Inquisitor class. During the galactic civil war we're all so familiar with, inquisitors were Emperor Palpatine's force of elite internal affairs officers, like a government auditor who could choke people with their mind. Some imperials were more afraid of the inquisitors than they were of Darth Vader. According to this trailer it seems that Palpatine stole the idea from the ancient Sith, who had inquisitors thousands of years prior. And you get to play as one! Ah retcons, you gotta love them.
