    I can't help but think that if this game used the JK2 engine, it might kick even more ass

    If I have as much fun playing through KOTOR as I did throwing stormtroopers around in JK2, I'll be a happy camper...

    Speaking of JK2's engine, anyone know what's being used as the basis for KOTOR?

    I have mixed feelings about this game -- I'm hoping it turns out to play a LOT beter than it currently looks. I have a nagging suspicion that KOTOR was probably intended to come out NOW on pc, but that changed after MS made Bioware an "offer they couldn't refuse." I wish it took better advantage of the X-box hardware than it seems to in those screenshots. However, Bioware has a great track record though, so it will be probably be all right.

    A couple of years ago, there was a rumor floating around that Squaresoft was partnering with Lucasarts for a Star Wars, FF-type RPG. Does anyone else remember reading about that?

    Well, there's a new (to me anyway) video showing ingame footage and an interview with one of the lead developers (Ray Muzyka)for KOTOR here
    Looking good...
