Well I because i seem to notice that people don't like his power is it that he is ridicoulsy powerful. I think he is one of the best star wars characters to me. please share what you think of him and tell how he could be improved.

DUDE, quit bumping.

Here's your answer: No, most members here don't like Starkiller/Galen Marek.

There's nothing compelling about him, and he's overpowered to the degree that it doesn't make any sense in the Star Wars universe.

Most of the people who b1tch about Galen Marek's uber-l33t powers are whiners who wish that their favorite characters benefit from such strength. How do I know this? Because they aren't throwing their ass about the many other overpowered schmucks running around the EU. I'd bet Nephthys's left nut that if Revan were doing that stuff, you'd be A-okay with it.

Oh, well I wasn't sure so I'm glad you told me.

lord starkiller
yep very funny but you are right about what you said

Nephthys
I think the hate for him Gideon is that unlike the other overpowered schmucks Marek was intentionally made that way. He's built to put the majority of other EU characters to shame. And he does it very flambouyantly, his immense power like a moon-sized dick in your face, unlike other characters in the EU who are mostly subtler about it. Plus theres the way he just shows up out of nowhere and is one of the most powerful Force users ever. We never really see his training or anything that would allow him to earn this spot in the big leagues, he's just introduced as being 'teh most l33t thing evre!'

That said I don't have a problem with him. I liked the first game and thought Galen was passable as a protagonist. I still think his 'I don't think he does either' line was actually pretty smart.

lord starkiller
Yes I can see why people do not like him but why can't we just accept him he was overpowered yes but we now see how The Rebels started and he just amazes me with his awsome force talents

And I can bet you Nephthys's right nut that I wouldn't be "A-okay" with it. Why would I be "A-okay" with cinematics of Revan doing some Jean Grey/Phoenix sh1t? Quit assuming things.




This.

And about your comment about Revan- yes I do like him, but I don't make nor want him to become some Force god (which is the way they try to demonstrate Starkiller).

You don't see Anakin Skywalker being able to do half the Force crap Marek is able to do at the same age, and he's supposed to have the highest midi-chlorian count and potential of all Force-users in history.

Revan's background and story takes place 4000 years before Yavin and it's much more developed. He has impressive feats, but they aren't "wtfs."

If TFU had been written better, and its gameplay was more attune to Star Wars logistics (which it's not- ex: the Vader lightning bath scene), I would have also appreciated Starkiller to a greater degree. The only thing I could give props to TFU was that they made Vader into the original badass he is supposed to be, especially after the rather weak way Lucas had Anakin Skywalker fall in ROTS.

I have no problem with Marek's AWESOME POWER. I have a problem with the game he's in. In any case, Marek has all the personality of a doorknob. He's about as flat as you get.

He's also in no way a Jedi as we understand what Jedi are... but somehow he is.

Marek is ridiculously over-powered. But as a character I liked him.

Stealth Moose
Meh, his storyline is shoe-horned in worse than the Clone Wars cartoons (which stomp all over the established continuity the novels and movies created) and his over the top Force power usage is heresy. He makes DE Luke and Sidious seem balanced and well thought out.

Personally I really like Galen and think he's a great character. I love how even though his childhood was stolen from him and he was twisted into a weapon for evil he had the strength to rise above it and become a hero. And what I like most is that he gained that strength from falling in love.

I really don't mind him being so powerful either. I have several other favourites far less powerful than him and that doesn't bother me. Plus, as I see it it makes sense. Most Jedi are trained to respect the Force, to show restraint, not push themselves too far etc. Galen was pushed to his limits from the start and the results of his training reflect that. We don't see Anakin and co. doing that kind of stuff because that's not the way they were trained.

But that's another thing that makes him awesome. Because he's different. I don't see why every Jedi has to fit the exact same profile and behave in the exact same way, like there's some mold that every Jedi has to fit.

Why shouldn't there be different kinds of Jedi? It makes things more interesting.

he was a boring character "cuz" vader trained him to be boring

That is both false and retarded. Vader orphaned the boy, raised him through a fifteen-year agoge, taught him to swordfight with a blade of starfire and rip space stations asunder with his goddamn mind, and christened him the motherfvcking Starkiller.

Clearly, he's OP. That's half of the problem. Starkiller's primary appeal is to the base crowd who craves unbridled Force pwnage in lieu of something like a decent personality and a plausible backstory that doesn't feel like "**** canon, I can insert shit in here all day long". It borders on Asoka levels of "Wtf".

That being said, the backstory sounds interesting when you say it, but plays out horribly.

Nephthys
Who's worse, Starkiller or Ahsoka?

Stealth Moose
Well, I would have said the oft-mentioned in the movies padawan, but then I saw trailers for TFU 2 where Starkiller is basically masturbating half of the galaxy using his mind, so he is worse.

He's certainly not the most compelling of characters, but I stand by my assessment that most people wouldn't have a problem with the feats within the game if they were performed by their favorite character/s.

For someone above such petty bullshit, it doesn't really bother me: Starkiller's elite, but hardly the badass people pretend he is.

I think part of the problem is that he's clearly showing TK well above even considerably high levels shown by other characters. It's like he's the prodigy Skywalker never was, but he amounts to nothing. He clearly has no purpose in the greater OT era, and he's somehow weaker than both Vader and Sidious despite his showings.

Why make him so blatantly powerful if he's useless?

Lord Lucien
For just the casual Star Wars fan, Marek was meant to be an overpowered death machine. The juxtaposition of TFU to the OT really raised questions among people I know who don't even know anything about the mythos beyond the films. His character traits were limited and his character's powers were amped. Perfect fodder for the video-game market of people who just want to wreck stuff with magic powers and a lightsaber. The decrying of his powers isn't due to favourtism, Gid, it's due to overbearing powers among characters from the comparatively underwhelming (and chronologically close) OT.

Turr_Phennir
Originally posted by Stealth Moose

If you're talking about within the films, then that goes back to the fundamental problem within the fandom as regards feats. The saga (and this includes the EU) relies on suspension of disbelief; I can understand if the casual moviegoer sees the films, compares it to the EU, and concludes movie!characters are weaker. But the mountains and mountains of EU supplements and authoritative compendiums, guides, and tomes simply refute the idea that the Force and/or its users are somehow weaker in the film era. I mean, hell, if you take it literally and don't bother with the suspension of disbelief, Imperial-era technology is largely inferior and less sophisticated than that of the Clone Wars-era.

Basically, the notion that film!characters are weak and powerful displays of the Force are inappropriate for the era has no basis for the more sophisticated fan.

The out-of-universe purpose of the game was to give Star Wars its superhero element, about "kicking ass with the Force." Vader alludes to the greater manifestations of the energy field, flat out telling Imperial commanders that the Death Star is insignificant in comparison. I don't think the bigwigs at LFL ever forgot that.

In-universe, it was to show the sort of path Luke or Anakin could have found themselves on had they been trained by the Sith from day one.

Stealth Moose
It's not about his overblown powers in regards to movie/OT characters. It's just that in the years of EU material prior, we don't see similarly overdone amounts of TK except for one showing in Dark Empire. And that's Luke Skywalker, so I'm willing to ignore it because Luke is apparently on the Force's Xmas card list.

I don't oppose Starkiller's premise if he were:

- Less OP. I don't care about his potential, I just don't feel some young punk should be TKing Star Destroyers when generations of Jedi and Sith before him never displayed such feats. It makes them appear less by extention.

- In another timeline. I mean, mixing it with Vader and Palpatine was so obviously fan service I'm not going to protest against the common sense of using them. I just believe the character could have been better used in another timeline, with a completely new story and supporting cast that would in itself be novel. Part of what makes KotOR so appealing is that it's not being bashed over the head with how "cool" movie characters are as if we didn't already know.

...so where the fvck does she go?


Don't tell me her and Anakin get into a fight and they stop talking and ever seeing each other again. What a load of bull that would be.

This is the leading question I keep asking myself when I ever hear anything about her. It really confuses me, I saw her as a sort of a female pre-Galen due to the way she held her lightsaber.

Korto Vos
Honestly, there are more than enough stories and characters that adding Ahsoka was completely unnecessary.

For example, Quinlan Vos and his involvement in the Clone Wars would have been a fantastic arc. And they don't depict Sora Bulq even though he's supposed to be one of Dooku's main acolytes.

Agreed there. The Clone Wars is already incredibly well developed. Hell, making some of the established novels into live-action animated sequences would be hooking enough.

Yeah. It was some random Mandalorian. Apparently he won because she didn't know his moves. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Nephthys
Oh jesus its true.

'Beviin stood still for so long that Jaina found herself un-able to stay back, and began sidling up to him, not sure what to do with her left hand other than extend it for balance. As she swung the beskad around in a horizontal arc into his chest, she felt the tip hit his plates-she was too far back, still thinking with a longer weapon-and he simply smashed his saber arm down on top of hers, brought his left fist up into her sternum and punched her back a few paces. He followed through and flattened her simply by jumping on her. It was over in two seconds, and he hadn't even used his blade.

........

This time she just took a couple of steps back and slashed diagonally without squaring up. The blade rang on impact, painfully loud, and suddenly his beskad was in his other hand, she couldn't get past his blocking move, and he ducked low to ram her with helmet and shoulder. Every time she got up, she ended up flat on her back again after a few thrusts and slashes, and yes, he used that left hand a lot; a follow-on punch, a one-two maneuver after a bone-shaking saber blow, kilos of dead metal slamming into her. The blade didn't even have to cut her. She was being ham-mered every time she was hit. All she could do was Force-leap out of the way.

Beviin was heavy, confident, and used his greater body weight as another weapon, as a battering ram. She couldn't find a way to get inside his reach that wasn't blocked by his free arm-armor changed the game, making any limb both a shield and a weapon-and didn't leave her wrong-footed. Eventually the only way she got in two consecutive blows and still stayed standing was to Force-push him to compen-sate for her lack of weight and momentum. She knocked him down and pinned him with the Force, panting.'
