Life is a lot more fun with a lightsaber. This becomes very evident after enduring the first 10 hours without one in this addictive space opera that takes place a long, long, long time ago (4,000 years before the ”Star Wars” movies) in a galaxy far, far away. It should be said that ”KOTOR” is a bit of a snooze until your Jedi finds his mojo, er, Force. Still, with its various story lines — some engrossing (saving the universe from Uber-villain Darth Malek), some less so (Wookiee grooming habits) — it’s easy to forgive the deliberate pace and subpar graphics that represent the game’s dark side.
