JA SP was bland but the MP is quite nifty, especially with the plethora of features the dudes at the JK LucasForum are finding. Apparetnyl you can unlock a whole new hand to hand fighting style through the console. Check one of the threads via the link.

JA is awesome, and yes, you can use hand to hand combat via the console, but it's rather weak.

KOTOR is my current game.

KOTOR is good, but I hate turned based battling, it just sucks imho. I wish KOTOR could have Jedi Academy/Jedi Outcasts fighting method like a regular game with the rest of the elements the same.

Academy was total bullshit compared to Outcast. It had a few more moves with a lightsaber (even though you supposadly had a lot of different ones with double and staff lightsabers). The gameplay just wasn't all that advanced to be placed in a seperate game. It was more like Outcast expansion pack, than anything else. It could have been 10 times better.

KOTOR was good in gameplay and impresively detailed world (seeing as how EACH dialogue in the game was voiced). But the story was amazingly weak and after getting past the Jedi Academy part of the game, everything became really uninteresting. I also hated how your persuasive abilities depended on a stat skill in the game and not through your own choice of conversation. I had to suffer through most of the game because my skills in the persuasive region were low :/ Which I think, is pretty pathetic, when the dialogue part of the gameplay is dependent on a stat skill. If they integrated more ADVENTURE qualities into KOTOR, the game would have been lightyears better. But of course, everybody hates adventure, they just wonna hack 'n bash and have a lot of stats and shit.

I personally think turned based battles suck ass, regardless of the game. So that's why I'd like to see Outcast fighting with a Knights style game.

Jedi Outcast owns Jedi Academy, you could have double bladed/dual sabers at JO with modes anyway. Besides, JO SP owned, JA's SP sucked totally, also KotoR imo.

Galaxies, well the atmosphere rocks, the planets are indeed awesome, and despite what other people say it does have SW spirit. But they fucked the PvP system. And hunting creatures all day isn't what I had in mind, especially when I wanted to be a Bounty Hunter if not a Jedi. Oh well, maybe space expansion will be the saviour.
