BioWare’s 2003 RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic allowed gamers to delve deeply into a previously unexplored time period of the Star Wars universe. Set 4,000 years before the events of A New Hope, the game thrusts players into the midst of a colossal conflict between the Republic and the Sith. The characters all have extensive backstories and unique personalities and the epic quest they embark upon dwarfs even the Lord of the Rings films in scope and stakes. The game takes full advantage of the vast Star Wars mythos and delivers a fresh yet familiar take on the universe George Lucas bestowed unto the world. The compelling story, distinct and interesting characters, superb voice acting, and classic Star Wars locales culminate in a tremendously immersive experience. This is easily one of the best video games I have ever played and the only RPG I ever finished. That is, until the sequel came out. With Disney’s recent announcement of standalone Star Wars films in the works, it is an apt moment to examine how a KotOR movie could look.
