There's a preview of Knights of the Old Republic 2 on GameSpot. Here's a bit on the tutorial, which sounds like a big improvement over the original game:
You'll start play in much the way you began the original KOTOR, so you'll create your character in the same multistep process as before, with the standard automatic set-up options for players who are eager to dive in and play. However, you'll have two options when you start playing. You can choose to play through a "prologue" that puts you in control of T3-M4, who wakes up (or, we suppose, comes online) on the Ebon Hawk after what appears to be either a wicked rave or a near-fatal battle that's left the ship trashed. Your task as T3 is to restore power to the ship and send it to Peragus Station, a nearby mining colony, before the occupants meet an untimely demise. This sequence brings you up to speed on the various systems for exploration, combat, and interaction in the game. If you choose to bypass the prologue, you'll wake up in a kolto tank (while wearing your Skivvies) on Peragus Station in a somewhat disoriented state. Once you're free of your watery home, you'll notice other kolto tanks with less-lively occupants. In fact, these occupants are dead, so you'll be, obviously, curious as to what the heck happened.
Not the Feargus Station?
