I'm still wrapping up KOTOR here actually when I have time to play... You'll not just "jump in and love it" I'm afraid Anthony... It's so much more involved than a shooter, but it does suck you in with story, which is a lot different than most games casual gamers are used to (not sure what you're into with gaming to say either way).
Commando's good for what it is, has some flaws, but the story more than gameplay is what drives KOTOR.
KOTOR 2 isn't nearly as good however... Not that it's bad, it's just a lot of duplication of the first I'm afraid.
As far as figures go, I'm all for more... I feel if they're going to delve into an EU property, Hasbro should cover more than 2 or 3 figures from said property. I think it'd be really great if you were able to, somehow, get a figure that was slightly "customizeable" to make a close approximation of your character from the game, however I don't see how it would be possible.
I'd be cool with getting some of the main party characters though, maybe a Sith/Republic Trooper, a Sith/Republic Officer... Maybe an alien or two from one of the planets you visit since their designs are quite Star Wars-ish and fit in.
I wouldn't go overboard at once on KOTOR figures, but mixed in here and there and I"d love to see quite a few actually.
