Actually, it isn't stated that you begin as Revan, is it? You might just be some Force Sensitive schmuck from some backwater hole who's just learned that he can control something called the Force.
Well, in the article that got scanned-up, all they say is that you won't begin as the same character from the first game, but are instead a veteran of the Mandalorean War who has been conveniently living in exile. Their justification for the loss of the powers sounds a bit like Jedi depression -- you just ain't been interested/focused on the force, and so have lost touch with your power (I'm paraphrasing, but that seems to be the general idea). Plus, they took away your 'saber since exiled Jedi aren't allowed to keep those (for obvious reasons)...
In order to allow the story in the sequel to keep parity with the events of the first game, apparently very early-on you'll be asked to recount your version of what happened, and your answers to those questions will form the seed that becomes the story for the second game.
Sounds like the best way to handle it all, really, as they couldn't possibly allow you to start with exactly
the same character, but they still want to carry the story forward from KOTOR in some fashion.. They're gonna make us work for the damn 'saber, tho..
How long do you KEEP those girlfriends, Meatfarts?
LOL, funny (actually not really) you should ask -- we broke up on Friday night, of all the crazy things.. solid nine years of good times down the ol' shitter
Now I'm living that horrible sort of exile where I have to get my own beer.. among other things. bleh.
The dactylic pentameter consists of too [sic] parts separated by a diaeresis. Each part consists of to [sic] dactyls and a long syllable. The spondee may take the place of the dactyl in the first part, but not in tEh [sic] second... -Harkness.This comment was edited on Apr 28, 14:50.
I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.
