Ah, good. We can talk KotOR here.

So, yeah, humans being from Coruscant predates KotOR. It's more Tuskens would've started as Suspiciously Humanoid Aliens... or maybe asari. There we go; the KotOR Tusken history is actually about them being SW asari and then mutating. Somehow.

or


So, they're not Native Amerdouins... they're Predator aliens!

I thought it was more, "Popular theory says humans are from Coruscant"? So, if humans from Coruscant is canon, and the Taungs are the original inhabitants of Coruscant, and the Taungs are the Mandalorians...the Mandalorians are the original humans?
It's more Tuskens would've started as Suspiciously Humanoid Aliens...
Shouldn't Tuskens be near-Human, then? Also, are the Zabraks near-Human? Canon seems to have flip-flopped all over the place on that one. Also "Twi'leks are near-Human" seems to have bafflingly been made canon by TCW.

Anyway, I don't care what canon--previous or subsequent--says: I'm sticking with Tuskens being the original humans, seeded across the galaxy by the Rakata. Because it's the coolest explanation. Or maybe the Tusken chief was just looking for trouble and needs to blasted. That may be wishful thinking on my part, master.


@OP: How powerful was Nihilus? Not terribly, in fact he was probably the easiest boss fight in the entire game. Actually, except that his visual design was unquestionably awesome, I have no idea how Nihilus made it into so much promotional material when he is definitely the least interesting adversary in the game--aside, perhaps, from some implications that Nihilus and the Exile are in some sense "the same," both being wounds in the Force. Still, despite the build up, he pales in comparison to either Sion or Traya--or even Atris.

No. The Taungs and the Zhell fought each other, and the Zhell drove the Taungs offworld. The Zhell were human.

35,000 years is enough time for some biological changes. A'Sharad Hett apparently said by the time of the Clone Wars, Tuskens and humans are "biologically incompatible." No context given.

I'm going with this one. <_<

Wah wah. >_>

Well, the point is the Exile is the only one who could stand against him... as anyone and anything else would just be consumed. But you cannot consume a vacuum... and he was already hungry. Basically, your strategy was starve the Eldritch Abomination and then stab it to death.

As opposed to the master manipulator who could probably have convinced Palpatine to do something injurious to his plans (...that could explain all plot holes that rely on Palpy being stupid: Kreia's spirit was sabotaging him! I'll trade you that for Tuskens being the progenitors of humans. ) and the Unkillable Walking Scab held together by sheer agony and rage. So you stab him and cause him more pain...?

But then you talk him into falling apart. Thank God for the engine and graphical limitations now that I think about it... just imagine Sion falling to a pile of scar tissue and ash as he gives up.

Or, for those who are even more a monster than GLaDOS believes Chell to be, you can pointlessly kill Visas, one of the coolest characters in the game, to make an easy fight easier.

Done.

Which brings us to the hardest part of TSL:RCM (spoiler alert for those who haven't played it): fighting Sion as Atton. [/spoiler]

Yeah, that would make Horizon and the Collector Base look cheerful, and husks look cuddly.

(Speaking of which, I've started ME again for reasons that baffle me; I'm playing as a male Shepard for also reasons that baffle me, but I'm planning to finally romance Liara past ME1 this time.)

You turn around and you fire up Jennifer Hale for that.

To my surprise, I'm actually kind of enjoying Meer's flatline delivery--I'm working with it and playing Sol Shepard as a sort of even-keeled neutral-ish paragon.
