I agree completely. In fact, this is generally why I tend to avoid fan produced audio drama even of my favourite series such as Dr. who, sinse they just can't get the actors, and (call me a stickler), but having some random person who isn't one of the encarnations suddenly claime to be the doctor, ---- or even worse, someone attempt to sound like Nicholas courtney or similar just doesn't do a lot for me.

Random acting is a long running thing though Tom, ---- Darth vader in the starwars radio plays needs shooting! and that's weven when they got most of the rest of the cast to play the other parts.


Beware the Grue!

Hi,

Yeah, I remember Teras Kasi too. I also agree that some of the acting
fell short of the mark. That's why I think some of the games are
better off if they use non-leading characters like Kyle Katern or they
pull a character out of the expanded universe like Mara Jade as there
isn't as much room for comparison except in the case where they
completely change a person's pesonality like they did in Mysteries of
the Sith. However, some of the Darth Vader voice overs in Rebel Assalt
and Rebel Assalt II were pretty good. Not
James Earl Jones, but a close enough  match to be convincing.

and Leia came to mind since it actually sounded remotely like Mark Hamil and
Carrie Fisher did the voice work. But for folks like Han and Vader it was
less convincing.
We are the Knights who saaaaay...Ni!
