Venture Bros borrows from Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Classify this under old but I just now connected these dots.  I just finished up the game SW: Knights of the Old Republic and it was one hell of a ride.  After taking a year or more off after getting halfway through the game I saw the main villain Lord Malak again and he reminded me of someone.  Baron Underbheit from the Venture Bros!  You have to admit this is a little much to just be a coincidence.  Especially when you take a look at this second picture.

Knights of the old Republic was first released July 15, 2003 on the Microsoft Xbox.  The first season of  Venture Bros premiered on Cartoon Network August 7, 2004 with Baron Underbheit appearing in a few season one episodes.  Close enough to where the game may have been an influence on Baron Underbheit's final design
