Honestly, I am absolutely none the wiser.

To get anything approaching effective teamwork in KotOR is fiddly and requires one to manipulate the "AI" with care. I normally liked to play as a scoundrel gunslinger jedi*, so I usually took Mission Vao and a tanky close-quarters character. In solo mode I would sneak Mission and my character into the rear of the enemy using our stealth belts, then I'd switch to the tank character and send them in the front door. Then I'd quickly switch to my character and Mission and shoot the enemy in the back with Sneak Attack. Yes, I played as a light-side jedi, why do you ask?

Members of my party getting stuck on the scenery was always a problem. After you kill the Krayt Dragon, always shoot the corpse until it disappears, so that party members don't get stuck on it when you have the fight against Calo Nord, for example. Yes Carth, I am looking at you.

Light side/Dark side is a bit stupid, but you have to blame George Lucas for that, not the game. If you want to play a force-power-centric character, there is something to be said for going Dark. Fear/Horror/Insanity is definitely better than Stun/Stasis/Stasis Field, for example, and you get Horror at just Level 6. But I can never bring myself to play Dark because the dark choices boil down to "be a jerk", so I just make Bindo take all the dark powers, and gun/grenade down the enemy while he drives them helplessly mad. Light side!

And yes, the story is the real draw. As you'll gather, I loved the game. I'd love it if they remade KotOR 2 as well, because the story is even better, but only after you patch the game to restore the content lost because of rushed development...

*Because I think lightsabers are stupid, and the wiffle-bat lightsaber combat in KotOR is very unsatisfying.

Aw, poor Slab! I'm so glad Faye immediately brought the entity back to buy it a new latte. It's unclear how it would do anything with the drink once it has it, but I still hope it gets that cupholder to safely take its beverages to wherever it goes to...do...whatever it does to enjoy them.

Also, I came into the thread not realizing I'd only read the second to last comic, and when I saw a comment about the slab looking crestfallen, I went from confused to sad and concerned very quickly. Slab has feelings and I MUST PROTEC

The slabs in both sequels (I own all 3 books) can. 
There are three sequels, four books in total.  The last one has a starting point similar to Lem's Fiasco: a person from our time is woken up in the far future, and tries to find their place in its very different society.
I'm missing one?
Dammit, I thought I had them all. I've got 2001, 2010, and 2063. I'll have to look for that final odyssey book.

EDIT: There's still a joke I want to make regarding the slab that probably isn't spoilers, but I'll refrain for now just in case it is.

The 'flower' reference went straight over my head (insert relevant meme here). Poor Slab though - their overpriced latte got wasted!

Oh god, I can *hear* that comic title.

Though I do have to wonder, does this mean immortal wardens of time and 9000+ year old Atlantean shark girls really exist in the QC timeline?

Also, I have one complaint. Mumei didn't throw berries at anybody.

Congratulations! I've missed a lot of references in my time here, especially on the pointless thread, but that is the least sense I've made yet of any post I've ever seen on these forums.

I do understand most of the words though.

What does the monolith DO with a latte anyway? *lol*

I'm impressed that Jeff managed to make a completely featureless floating black slab look crestfallen.
