When I was a teenager, Star Wars – Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast was new and awesome. It, however, lacked one crucial feature: the ability to choose your character’s species. So I fixed that by modding my game files, and Kyle Katarn the human became Kyle Katarn the Chiss.
So when Star Wars: The Old Republic announced Chiss as a playable species, my hopes were high that I would be able to finally have my Chiss with a lightsabers. No such luck. Chiss were limited to non-Force-sensitive classes.
However, with the advent of Patch 1.2, the Legacy system allowed universal species unlocks, and my nerdy teenage dream became a reality. I now have a Chiss with not one, but two lightsabers. Awesome.
