Extra Credit: Knights of the Old Republic
Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR for short), is notable for many reasons. Developers BioWare and Obsidian not only created a new plotline, in fact part of a new history, of Star Wars, but managed to also do so with RPG elements. From the moment development began to the release of the sequel, KOTOR is definitely an influential part of the video game universe of Star Wars. This episode delves into development, mechanics, and release of both titles in the series.
