My friends will be happy to see this. I personally would have preferred a new KotOR RPG - except without LucasArts imposing strict deadlines causing the developers to cut content (KotOR2).

Go check the vid there, they explain how you will stop handing money over to blizz and start handing it over to Bioware.

Quote:
The second installment in Bioware's series of video documentaries for its upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, reveals how the developer is planning on viciously and irrevocably hooking subscribers. Instead of tapping into whatever mystical, stat-driven formula World of Warcraft has divined, Bioware is focusing on getting players to become invested in the overarching stories of their characters, hoping that players will create "their own personal Star Wars saga."

The documentary gives a brief example of how this will work -- each class will apparently have their own hundreds-of-hours-long storyline to pursue, aided by cinematic pseudo-cutscenes and major, story-altering decisions the player will be forced to make. Check out the video after the break!

True! I played that POS for two years only to be disappointing by every change implemented by Sony Entertainment and the developers. The only thing that even grabbed me slightly was space combat but that didn't last long when the missions in space ran out. And Bounty hunting was cool, I had some Jedi beg for their lives haha. Though I never did manage to get a bounty for a Jedi Knight or master, it was mostly just padawans (dark side padawans) that I killed.
