I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, although I must admit I liked the movies and have watched them all a few times, but I can’t recite them back to you…
Just read this article on Arstechnica where the guys at Arstechnica interviewed Daniel Erickson from Lucasarts, he’s a lead writer for the new game Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I love this quote from the article.
Did he really just convince me that the Sith were the good guys in all this? Growing up, being taught to understand and explore our emotions and passions, and then being told this monk-like order had hunted my people to near extinction… it’s easy to see the attraction to taking up your blaster or lightsaber against their order.
In other words, to give into your hate.
