This Sith we interrogate in this episode sounded really familiar to me. (And his old-man voice seems to be at odds with his young-ish face.) He actually sounds like Deckard Cain from Diablo. I looked on IMDB and Deckard’s voice actor is indeed credited in KOTOR, but this character doesn’t have a name so I can’t be sure.
I’m rolling my eyes at all the “boring puzzles” in this episode, but the tricky thing about puzzles is that they can be really hit-or-miss. Some of them are a welcome change of pace. There’s nothing particularly wrong with these puzzles, but I was probably snarking because it’s really boring to watch someone else solve a puzzle.
I notice puzzles have been falling out of favor at BioWare. KOTOR is packed with them. Jade EmpireI’d consider the cultural debate against John Cleese to be a puzzle, since it’s really about manipulating binary switches. and Mass Effect seemed to have fewer. I can’t remember any puzzles in Mass Effect 2 or 3.
