KOTOR is on sale on Steam for $2.99. Will I get three dollar's value from this?

For games that aren't offered for free, yes.

Just like I pay for music and movies. I know I'm totally crazy for wanting money to go to the producers of content I enjoy.

Absolutely you will get your money's worth and then some.

Out of the box it is already a fantastic game. I can give you a list of mods that raise the bar even higher, but I am not sure about Steam version compatibility.

It may be someone will need to make Workshop versions of them. Perhaps I should learn how.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Can any game ever be worth paying for when the best game EVAR is free?

I refer of course to NetHack.

Update: Steam's version can accept the mods, but it is actually better to install them manually than futz around with the Workshop in this case. A lot of the mods were implemented there by people other than the developers, with unpredictable consequences. The mods work fine as long as you find the right path to put them in.
