Well, for the $5.50 she also makes a cute little tulip design in the milk froth, so I'd say it comes out about even.

Nah, I think it's totally worth it -- for places were you purchase also a nice place to sit down and have a conversation.

People who buy coffee that expensive to go will never make sense to me.

One of my relatives does a Starbucks every morning and brings it in to work, for like the last ten years. While I personally find it downright stupid, there's not that too many ways to replace what she's actually buying: A sense of being part of some upper-caste that can afford frivolous luxuries, and the ability to show it off at the workplace. (Okay, I could add other comments about her judgement, but...)

On the other hand, I once got into an argument with somebody about the quality of Starbucks coffee and decided to just resign from it when one of the key features that made their coffee superior was that you could get a soy latte with double flavor shots there. At that point, I'm not even sure if you can taste the coffee anymore.

Going back to sales:

20 hours left from the time of this post for Star wars: KOTOR I & II for $5, or $2.5 each.

Sale is on chrono.gg. It's a site that I've used in the past, it gives steam keys.

And about KOTOR: everyone is clamoring them to be very good Star Wars games, so it's worth a buy.

I found them extremely boring and formulaic, fwiw.

Games are definitely dated at this point. Roughly 15 years old, and they weren't exactly cutting-edge when they were released.
That said, I found them to be full of lore vastly more interesting than anything found in the movies. Gameplay provided very decent strategic character customization and tactical combat planning. Far from the worst things to come out of the Star Wars franchise.

I never played KOTOR II, but I was, mechanically, the same engine from Mass Effect 1. Not saying that's good or bad, and the gameplay was entertaining at the time. If you're a "star wars person" and an "RPG person" odds are decent you'll enjoy it.

And then, they will be weaponized. Like everything in this game, from kittens to babies, everything is a potential device of murder.
So if baseless speculation is all we have, we might as well treat it like fact.

I liked KotOR1 because the plot is enjoyable for the romp through Star Wars. It doesn't do anything really outstanding plot wise but it's enough for the purpose of the game.

KotOR2 I found much more interesting because the plot and characters break down a lot of the elements taken for granted in the Star Wars movies. Kreia is a very interesting character to analyze in regards to her motives and philosophy towards the force. The second game does fall apart a bit towards the end with unresolved loose ends due to unfinished and cut content. I haven't played through with the fanmade patches that restore content.

I never liked KotOR because I find the combat tedious and difficult to control. The d20 system is also extremely played out to me at this point, and I don't think it's ever been a good fit for video games.

Dont play Pathfinder Kingmaker then. If you think Kotor's reliance on D20 rolls is bad..

Yeah I know to watch out for CRPGs. Does Wizardry count? I do like Wizardry and those first person party crawls like Etrian Odyssey and Grimrock (and their relatives like Stonekeep and some of the Ultima games), but the (isometric) d20 real-time-with-pause party experience? Uh huh, not for me

What? Pathfinder: Kingmaker is like the game to implement d20 the most well since Temple of Elemental Evil

I found KotOR to be just in the right place as far as control and combat goes. Most of the time, I could take care of what I was doing and not have to worry about my allies all that much.

Baldur's Gate though. Oof. OOOOOOF.

Now I'm even more confused. Baldur's Gate has like the simplest, easiest combat ever. Click and watch 'em go. Throw a spell every now and again. Some might find it boring but I've always found "laid back" to be a more fitting term. The kind of game you can play to relax.

Agreed, Baldur's Gate was simple to the point of boredom sometimes. There were barely any tactical considerations, just run into them and hack away or stand back and fire away for most combats. Some spells made it a little messier but not much.
