Statement: Hell yes it was.
My favorite character in Rogue One was the reprogrammed Imperial droid, K-2so. Sarcasm, cynicism and humor wrapped up in a loyal killing machine who is eager to serve his master. You ever wonder where they got the idea for it?
I have a guess:
Of course…if you aren’t a super geeky Star Wars fan that does not also play vidja-games related to said movie, you probably don’t know who HK-47 is. A reprogrammed Imperial Assassin droid from Knights of the Old Republic II.
Check out this clip from KOTOR 2 and tell me if you think he could have been the inspiration for K-2so (KOTOR-2so ya think?)
