|Meanwhile, the rather appropriately-named website "PlayMoreConsoles" has put on public display their own interview with Obsidian's Chris Avellone IRT Star Wars KoTOR II: The Sith Lords...
PMC: One thing that made the KOTOR story so unique in terms of depth was that it incorporated many aspects of Star Wars EU. Exar Kun`s background and his war was explained. Nomi Sunrider was mentioned by Jolee Bindu. With this happening it really made KOTOR feel like it had a place in the SW universe rather then being a random SW game floating around with no links to other SW related material. Followers of SW really appreciated this. Will The SithLords be the same?
CA: Yeah, the history of both the Expanded Universe and (especially) the first KOTOR factor strongly into the storyline. While there is not nearly as much background material on the era in which The Sith Lords takes place, there`s still a lot of strong history to draw upon, and it`ll be showing up in the story at points as well as all the way down to certain items in the game (much like the Qel-Droma robes in KOTOR I, for example).
