Does anyone ike Galen marek?

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.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: 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.

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.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: 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.

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.

Fun game, average story. Marek served his purpose as a Force conduit for fun gameplay.

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.
