Star Wars Sequel Lacks Force

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is a pretty good game. It could have been great if publisher LucasArts had let the title cook for another six months instead of rushing it out for Christmas.
The game’s predecessor, Knights of the Old Republic, was my favorite game of 2003 and topped a number of other critics’ lists. The two big surprises surrounding the newly released sequel (available now in Xbox and in early 2005 for the PC) were that the game would come out 18 months after the first KOTOR, and that developer Obsidian would take the place of BioWare.
