ActionTrip has posted a detailed 2-page preview of KotOR II. There is nothing new here though, but if you want an overview, that'll do.
There are seven worlds in the game to explore, like Dantooine, Korriban, Telos, and Dxun which is the largest moon to the new planet Onderon, a Republic ally. As I've already mentioned, the game begins at the asteroid named Peragus Station, and your first mission will be to repair your ship in order to get the hell out of Dodge and get yourself into some action. The environments get progressively bigger and are rendered with more detail so the game should look really impressive. There are also a few mini-games to play, and some special attention has been devoted to them. However they will be optional, so if you have no interest feel free to ignore them. There are also some "bonus" missions that, as Chris Avellone says, correspond to finding secret areas in first-person shooter mode. "Only by thoroughly exploring an area, effectively using specific skills, or perhaps paying attention at the right time can the player find that he can gain bonus missions for his characters to undertake", Chris tells us. These missions are a good way for the player to learn more about himself, his surroundings and to gain some exp. points in the process.
Bonus mission? Is it like really, really cool quests?
