Reference would be nice. However if you take the jedi in the very beginning... you could level it with crafting... if you take the jedi when the village was in, you could level with granade spamming... .
You do realise that HM's isn't for the "single players" out there? And there alot of people...
Anyone notice that the writers have kind of taken a shit on any character associated with previous lore so far? They made that cinematic trailer as a prelude to an epic character from game past and then make it simple as all hell to acquire. The only thing that would have irritated me more would have been if they sold him in the cash shop. Disappointment after disappointment.
I'm not really sure why this is supposed to be a disappointment. If it would be too long... people would complain, if it would be to hard, people would complain... . There were several people already complaining about "leveling" another republic character to some level... .
The quest was interesting at least... please more abandoned ships full of riddles and "surprises".
I love Kotor and the story around Revan. However I don't find it to blame that you meet Revan at an early level and that you can beat him "easily". However there needs to be some kind of interaction with these characters and not to misunderstand each other... this is not "the" HK we know from Kotor but "one of many".
Let's not forget that the reason it was so hard to attain a Jedi in SWG was that it was a very powerful class at that time, easily outperforming a larger group of normal classes. Later when this class was tuned down also the time to get a jedi was reduced and made easier. The HK we receive has none of these characteristics, it's just another companion.
As for Revan, yeah, it's a fucking travesty that he's a FP boss, plain and simple. WoW only ever turned one major lore character from their games into a dungeon boss and the community at large had a shit fit when it happened. No. There should have been a much more epic showdown with Revan.
During the quest... you ask for "one" HK as reward for helping, it's not "the" HK we see in several flashpoints. The companion has not all the epicness of the original HK nor its story attached to it which is why I think it's nothing to bend over it.
As for Revan.. he isn't dead so there will be more to it at a later stage of the game. I also rather have it like this than have epic characters of a universe just as a Quest NPC's. You can see Satele, however you didn't see the emperor nore most of the dark council members (several seats are free at the final stage of the Inquisitor/ Sith Warrior questline).
I know a lot of people also didn't like how Drew handled the confrontation between Revan and the Empror or just think that you have on of the characters involved as "a pet" for the Jedi. There is still a lot of potential involving epic characters, none have been killed (apart from Malgus) meaning they can be a part of the future lore (which also isn't anywhere clear).
Edit: regarding lore...

2) They made an awesome trailer for a future content update revolving just around this one event.
3) They then delivered one evening worth of quests that can be completed faster the the Chevin event...and even though I liked the event, most people thought it was garbage.
I would have resubbed just to play through a week of quests and dungeons to get this companion. Who are they marketing/catering to anymore? The most loyal people that are still subscribed will mostly be a little put off by this. It just goes to show that they care very little in making this game feel epic.
There is a huge disconnect between TFB and the rest of the game at this point. Time will tell whether they lean one way or the other, or keep bouncing between total bollocks and absolute awesome. Either situation doesn't bode well for the future unless they keep producing content like TFB.

Unfortunately what you said seems about right. Promises, promises, promises have resulted in nothing, nothing, nothing.
One of my guildmates was able to acquire him in about 2 hours on the PTS realm. I was seriously hoping for something more challenging but like Arlee said SWTOR' future transition to FTP may have had something to do with it.

Hearing about how easy this quest is going to be is a huge bummer to me. It feels like EA has just given up at this point. What a shame. Im coming up on a years of continuous subscription and I only log in to craft augments to sell on the GTN. Everything else is kind of inaccesable due to time/commitment barriers. I was hoping this PVE stuff would be more substantial.
I'm going to have to petition for another name change.
Can't believe they went from "major time investment" to welfare companion.
