So, as someone who loved KotOR and KotOR II, is this worth delving into as a single player experience? I have zero interest in the MMO part of it, but I wouldn't mind revisiting the world if I can do it on my own.

It is good enough that it will make you sad that it wasn't a single player game. Take that for what you will.

I played through a large portion of 2 of the starting 'campaigns' when it was just going free to play. I lucked into playing on a totally dead server so it almost was a single player game for me. Basically, yes you would probably enjoy it.
