Oh pleasepleaseplease let it be a new "Knights of the Old Republic" chapter

I never was really into BioWare games until Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Yes, I’m sure that labels me as some sort of bad person, but I just couldn’t get into the whole D&D thing with Baldur’s Gate. I really liked MDK2, but that’s not the sort of game that people associate with BioWare.

Anyway, Jade Empire was great, in my opinion, and I’ve already handed over my money for a Mass Effect pre-order. But what I really want is a new KOTOR game. The first KOTOR is one of my favourite RPGs of all time, so obviously when I learned this morning that LucasArts and BioWare today announced that they are creating an interactive entertainment product, I got all hot and bothered.

Now there’s no mention of a new KOTOR or Star Wars product. The press release simply said that the two companies were working on a new game. Read the sound bites:

“LucasArts has a deep commitment to developing compelling stories and characters for the unique medium of interactive entertainment, and we have been searching for a developer that shares this value. We found this in BioWare,” said Jim Ward, president of LucasArts. “Through our previous collaborations, we know that BioWare has an impressive ability to blend gripping stories with technological advancements, and we believe that our upcoming product will deliver an experience that will span the traditional boundaries of video game entertainment.”

“BioWare’s mission is to deliver the best story and character-driven games in the world, delivering powerful emotional experiences to our fans.” said Ray Muzyka, chief executive officer, BioWare Corp. Added Greg Zeschuk, president of BioWare Corp., “The collaboration with LucasArts allows us to combine our passion for creating high quality and innovative experiences with those of a company dedicated to bringing only the finest games to market.”

Right, so they could be anything. Might even be some sort of revival of old LucasArts adventure games, such as Full Throttle, Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. Now that I think about it, those could be even more interesting than a new KOTOR game.
