Revan fell hugeley by turning all those Jedi away from the Jedi Order into Malachor where many were turned to violence and bloodlust against the mandalorians. He intentionally led the Jedi against the will and order of the Jedi. In the first one it was him who sought the Star Forge for its dark power, his and Malaks fall began there. He wanted Galactic rule just like any other Sith Lord, he was just a little more persuasive in his approach and that's how he led all those Jedi ultimateley to their deaths or to the dark side.

    Also what's an MMORPG?

In the third movie, while it was still missing some nuance, I could see how Obi-Wan's (and especially that of the Council's) patronizing attitudes contributed directly to Anakin's fall. if they had been better, Anakin might not have strayed ultimately. The final battle was more like an insensitive father regretfully destroying a renegade child who never felt loved or respected.
    What games did you play? I didn't play any movie-related ones.

    Not quite, that's one of the things that resonated with the prequels: the Jedi Order was arrogant and blind. Also Revan didn't fight a "scorched earth" war against the Republic, he left key planets alone. It was hinted that he was doing this to take control of the Republic against some threat from the Unknown Regions (where he left for after the 1st game). I assume this was going to be the third game: perhaps the true Sith :

    Revan's plan was to keep the Republic largely intact for the purposes of post-war rebuilding. He even took out a number of political figureheads, such as Yusanis of the Echani, Senator Mimas Yoon of Corellia and Lelin-Dor of Serroco.
    As such, he could begin his rule with a relatively functional military and economy rather than starting from scratch. Also, had he failed in conquering the galaxy, he believed the end result would be much the same: a stronger Republic, more capable of defending itself.

    Fair enough, can't argue with a bit of Wookiepedia. However Revan was still a sith Lord and was therefore alighned with the dark side. Why didn't he suggest his plan to the senate?

    Crap.
    Their going to do THAT with the new KOTOR 3? Eh? Love to see how that's going to be remoteley as good.

    Are you refering to KOTOR or Bastila in particular?
