Kotor 2 was hamstrung by bugs, glitches, save game corruption and was essentially completely unfinished, and should never have made it to the shelves in the condition it was in. That said, it offered a lot more moral ambiguity than the original, which is praiseworthy.

However in their favour, Bioware definitely learned from that mistake. Hauling it up, what, 12 years later as an example of why we might get a bad 40k game from bioware is a completely specious argument, akin to saying "you shouldn't keep rats because they carry the plague".

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I agree with this one - Since then they have probably produced the most high-quality story-driven games in modern times. If this turns out to be a thing, I will rest easy and await one hell of a game!

My beard hair tingles at the possiblity of a ME style 40K game.

Of course the protagonist will be an Ultramarine, because the emperor ordains it so.

Everything has a purpose. The Emperor ordains it so. You may corrupt the souls of men. But I am no man. I am an Ultramarine! I am doom! I march for Macragge, and I know no fear!

Nobody has heard that rumour because there isn't a rumour? What the hell was in that link?

(This was a joke, I understand that you're trying to say there is no 40K total war game coming, your sentence was just worded poorly. ;)

It could turn into another KOTOR2, or the story could have an ending like the mass effect series.

Or they could do another your mom hates dead space 2 thing, or have fake protesters like dantes infernal.

That's if we're lucky.

Kotor2 was also not done by Bioware at all, it was actually Obsidian (who are owned by Sega)
