Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords (KotOR II) is a role playing video game released for the Xbox and Microsoft Windows. The Xbox version of this sequel to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was released on December 6, 2004, while the Windows version was released on February 8, 2005. It was developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by LucasArts. The music score was composed by Mark Griskey.
The game is the sequel to BioWare's commercially and critically acclaimed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The change of developers came at BioWare's suggestion based on their familiarity with Obsidian Entertainment's previous work, as BioWare was busy developing Jade Empire and started focusing on their own intellectual properties. Development on The Sith Lords started around the same time of Knights of the Old Republic's Xbox release.
The Sith Lords was constructed using an updated version of Knights of the Old Republic ' s Odyssey game engine, which Obsidian obtained from BioWare Company.
Producer Chris Avellone in an interview after the game's publication stated that he wished "there had been more time" to work on the game, and that a large amount of content — a droid factory, an entire planet, and other locations — was cut.
