I know there's already at least one of these threads, but I don't feel like looking for them.

Anyway, mine is definitely Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Obi-Wan: Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin, they betray you. You've made a commitment to the Jedi Order - a commitment not easily broken...and don't forget she's a politician. They're not to be trusted.
Anakin: She's not like the others in the Senate, Master.
Obi-Wan: It's been my experience that Senators are only focused on pleasing those who fund their campaigns - and they are more than willing to forget the niceties of democracy to get those funds.
Anakin: Not another lecture, Master. Not on the economics of politics...and besides, you're generalizing. The Chancellor doesn't appear to be corrupt.
Obi-Wan: Palpatine's a politician. I've observed that he is very clever at following the passions and prejudices of the Senators.

"If you seek to aid everyone that suffers in the galaxy, you will only weaken yourself... and weaken them. It is the internal struggles, when fought and won on their own, that yield the strongest rewards... If you care for others, then dispense with pity and sacrifice and recognize the value in letting them fight their own battles."

She was my favorite character from those games. I always kept her as companion because she had the best dialogue, even if she wasn't the best in combat. I was disappointed at having to kill her in the end. I'd rather have an end where you become her apprentice.

I made the mistake of trying to turn her good, so I never upgraded any of her really cool abilities haha. It was crushing every time I did something too selfless in game and she'd hit me with some snark. She is such an amazing character. Playing alongside her was one of those rare occasions where a character had me actually doubting my own choices and path in the game! You're making me want to replay the game now haha

What I love is that she does the exact same thing if you play through making darksided decisions. She basically plays devils advocate for the other side in order for you to see how nuanced everything is.

That's really interesting, I didn't realize that. I always tell myself to replay games like that as a more evil character but I don't have it in myself to make those choices haha

Haha, I often play as a mildly evil character, but there are some things that I just can't do. When I did those few good things, I found out that she basically chides you no matter what you do, unless it's a really sneaky and elegant solution.
