IGN posted a more detailed KotOR II preview. It's interesting to note that they also talk about the amnesia thing:
You start the game in a medical facility on Peragus Station, a remote asteroid mining operation. You have no recollection of who you are, how you got there, or why you're hurt (sound familiar?). As it turns out, in just five brief years, you're the only known Jedi (note: the only known -- you will come across many more Jedi in the game) left in the universe, and now it's up to you to carry on the ideals and beliefs of the JediWow! The only known Jedi! The last of my kind, just like Superman!
Since the game is built on the same engine as the original, it's no surprise that most of the gameplay elements will work in a similar fashion. Combat works pretty much exactly like you remember it, a pausable turn-based system that plays out in real-time animations, but there will be a few minor changes. One is the ability to have two weapon quickslots that you can use to switch between if you like to switch up your style on the fly without having to access the inventory screenPausable turn-based, huh? That's cool.
