Oh Star Wars, what a love-hate relationship I have with you. After suffering through the prequels and having my intelligence insulted by the awful CG animated Clone Wars cartoon, I swore we were through. But then Bioware comes along with The Old Republic
and awesome trailers like this, and reminds me why I loved Star Wars in the first place. Then again, I like to think of the KoToR continuity as somehow separate from the lumbering, obese remainder of Star Wars lore, as if it escaped the kitsch and endless merchandising that has squeezed every last drop of respectability and taste from Star Wars in general. Yes, I am aware I have a problem. But that doesn't keep this Sith Lord character progression trailer from being really cool.
