@JamusIn the original Knights of the Old Republic games, there were more Jedi and Sith Lords running around, but they were wiping each other out -- well, actually the Sith were killing off the Jedi and each other. In KOTOR 1 you got to go to a Sith Academy, either "for real" or undercover. So having a ton of Jedi around would not be as jarring as during the Empire time period.Also much of the technology of the Old Republic was lost after the Empire took over. This technology was the devs way of letting regular soldiers take on Jedi/Sith. Energy shields for example could absorb lightsaber damage, and melee weapons used special materials that could block a lightsaber. A bit of deus ex machina, but it worked. So you have battle droids, soldiers, bounty hunters and other characters who can "hang" with the Force-attuned. So I don't think it will be too hard to balance Jedi. Otherwise, yeah it would be a problem like in Star Wars: Galaxies.Let's not for get the classic: HK-47 on "How to kill a Jedi"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPeI4mX8Nus
