I guess this may be a case of a studio, specialized on porting games, biting off more than they could chew.

I know nothing about this specific game or this specific studio, but this kind of thing sits right in my professional wheelhouse. All I can say is that AAA development is hard, development expectations and processes are not always realistic, and that there currently is a very high demand for dev talent - there are more projects to be developed than competent, reputable teams.

That's why reputable, competent teams aren't always used.
PDH!

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

It is kind of funny considering how popular and beloved the KOTOR series was that it has been pretty much completely ignored and abandoned by Disney while they pump out trash all over the place.

Probably a blessing. We didn't need a remake.

it wasn't much of a remake apparently, it was more of an upscaling to modern graphics.  A bit disappointed in that too, as I'd prefer an expanded story line that include the cut content (there was some too from Kotor 1, just much less than Kotor II) and an upgrade to some game mechanics.  More in the line of Age of Empires Definitive Editions series than Blizzard's remakes of Starcraft and Warcraft that included all the original bugs so as not to disturb competitive gameplay :rolleyes:
