Welcome everybody to another Thought Transmission! Because of the massive amount of spoilers that this article generates concerning KotOR, Revan the novel AND SW:TOR, I do not want to give you anything to skim over before you actually started reading this article, if you are planning on reading the book yourself, or if you have still not played either game yet and do not want to be spoiled up front.

Darth Vader opposite of Luke Skywalker in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi or even more recently Yoda battling Dooku in Attack of the Clones and against Palpatine in Revenge of the Sith. The whole universe created by George Lucas has inspired many people throughout their lives, and the identity of many geeks would not have been established without Star Wars pulling them in.
