Don't let anything divert you from your quest. Especially another quest.
The game can easily go all Scheherazade on you if you start getting into that sort of thing.
Obi-Wan: And what is your name, young wanderer?
Adam: Um... let's see. "Adam Lars".
R2-D2: So, Obi-Wan, long time no see. What happened to my dreadnought?
Obi-Wan: R2-D2. I knew you'd be here somewhere.
R2-D2: Aha! You did have a tracking device on me!
Obi-Wan: You've always said it's bad to split the party.
Adam: You two know each other?
Obi-Wan: We fought together in the Droid Wars.
Adam: The Droid Wars?
Obi-Wan: Before your time.
C-3PO: They led to the downfall of the Jedi and the corruption of the Galactic Senate.
Adam: Well this is all fascinating, I'm sure, but I'm on a quest. I need to get home.
Obi-Wan: As you wish.
R2-D2: He thinks he's going to melt us down.
Obi-Wan: Hmmm. You probably would be worth more credits that way.
