Eh, whoops. Aspyr, the developer/porter behind the latest version of Knights of the Old Republic II on nintendo switch, Tweeted She realizes that it is currently impossible to finish the game.
Austin-based Aspyr has made its name in porting classic games to new systems, most recently bringing a slew of Star Wars titles to the Switch. The latest one is a painful name but absolutely gorgeous Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – Sith LordsReleased two weeks ago.
But after some pressure from a customer, the studio acknowledged that it understands that the game is currently buggy so it can’t be completed on a Nintendo handheld.

It’s definitely worth holding off on picking up this awesome Obsidian RPG until better news comes out.
