I couldn't agree more. It's a shame so much of her character was cut from the game (rushed by lucasfilm), where she ends as as a force-hating bitter old sith. Her existentialism-heavy philosophy is why I ever bothered with jediism and identify with the shadow path.

I wasn't aware of how much her character influenced me growing up. Not until now as an 29 y/o.. Looking back though, I wish I had really understood the depth of it all then. Instead of just now really grasping it..

The idea to challenge ideas, codes, creeds, philosophies, etc. Not to be contrarian, but to sharpen my own mind. To improve what is useful and discard what is worthless. Even if that discarded piece is a deep rooted belief. Such as religious dogma or cultural stereotypes.. it would have given me stronger purpose and focus in my rebellious years. I rebelled for my own freedom, but didn't really know how to improve myself.. I had ideas, but I was never fully planted in them. So eventually I was easily lead back astray by my own guilt and the dogma of others.. My mind made me weak, where at one point it was my greatest strength..
