4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords

Thank you, Based Chris Avellone, for helping to design perhaps the second best Star Wars game in franchise history (only behind the original). With restored content mods installed, KotOR II provided an amazing D&D-based RPG experience once again.

A rich branch of dialog options and well-developed characters makes influencing people an enjoyable route of combat avoidance. Combat, with new force powers and teammates, proved a viable option for those who didn’t want to talk their way out of trouble. There were many ways to play KotOR 2, with the only correct amount of time played being, “Not enough.”
