6,7 and 8... and 2 Freedom man, freedom. SciFi is a means to an end. Most games based on a known mythology/reality binds player and story to a known universe. SciFi (and fantasy i guess) allows the author to experiment. Alternative moral-systems and ethics, interesting technological advances and/or alternatives and philosophies based on non-standard axioms. It's a playground for authors, artists and philosophers alike. If you want an immersive story which caters to the intelligent player, you need freedom freed from preconceived ideas. Everything else has been done in one way or another. Oh, and light-sabers are pretty damn cool. This is my first post in a long time. And im drunk. Bare with me.
