Your writing about the alphabets don't make sense. From the looks of Wookieepedia and Aurebesh and your galactic basic writing above, it's the same alphabet.

It's different. Some things are the same, but not all.

lol okay, I guess I didn't look at it that closely. I did notice the lower case letters are sometimes mirrored, but I mean for the most part it's like the english vs the spanish alphabet, it's the same except for neyaa and in some places CH

I understand that I may be a heretic for saying this, but I can't hold it in any longer; I think the cantina music is terrible. I avoid cantinas as much as possible for that reason, and it saddens me that if I want to rest, I must brave the circus-like techno-jazz assault on my ears. One song was cute. Two songs make me think I'm in a child's cartoon. Three or more and I need an insulin injection.

I feel better now for having unburdened my soul. Flame away.

@(Unverified) You didn't even like the Lapti Nek variant? It's cute.

Oh, I'm sure there's some decent songs in there, but the bad ones are like nails on a chalkboard. I'd rather listen to Nickleback. It's like country music to me; there's a handful of tunes I can tolerate, but I'd rather bareback a porcupine than listen to a country station.

If I could just use the jukebox credits to play silence for 2-3 minutes at a time I'd be golden.

" For instance, I am sure you noticed that the Trooper class very much resembles the Stormtroopers from the first Star Wars movies and the Clonetroopers from the prequels and animated series. This helps tie the player to the story by tapping into his nostalgia."

lol - so much for lore. Doesn't this game take place like 3000 years BEFORE the SW of the movie series? I guess not much changes in that universe.

You might not have noticed, but in the real world we still use a lot of things that were created thousands of years ago, even now. And then there's all the variations and new takes people come up with.

Yes, modern military armor does bear a striking resemblance to Sumarian military gear. I am sure all Sumarians feel nostalgic when they see it.

@JuliusSeizure I think you'd be hard pressed to find even one thing that resembles the same thing from 3,000 years ago in appearance. Paper wasn't even invented until several hundred years later.

That's one of the things that puts me off the Old Republic-era stories and games like ToR and KotOR. Apparently in 3,000 years, technology, language, most everything has stayed pretty much the same. Sure, some things look slightly different, but just barely. I know the entire premise of Star Wars relies on suspension of disbelief, but that takes it pretty far. All of western civilization developed in less time than that.

Think of it this way. Maybe the Kaminoans intentionally invoked the look of Republic Trooper armor from the Great Galactic War simply as a way of making their Republic army look like the standards of previous Republic armies. It could've been the Kaminoans doing research so their army feels more belonging to their clients. It's very easy to retcon this stuff away.

Has that decoder for the Star Wars written language been "official" for any amount of time?

And... no one noticed that the symbols for lower-case E and upper-case N were identical? Same for vice versa - lower-case N and upper-case E.

For serious?

Um.. they aren't. You might want to look closer, similar yes but not the same.

Yes, our modern military armor bears a close resemblance to that of the Sumarians. /eyeroll
