Rumor: The Old Republic Space Combat on Rails?

Massively has dug up a German-language article on Star Wars: The Old Republic that's said to be based on an upcoming print article in PC Action magazine. The article offers indications that space combat in the upcoming MMORPG will be on rails, saying: "Der Raumkampf ähnelt auf dem ersten Blick dem 1993 erschienenen Rebel Aussault. Man fliegt einen vordefinierten Pfad ab und knallt Gegner ab. Diese Spielweise nennt sich Tunnel-Shooter." Google helps us translate: "The space combat is similar at first glance appeared the 1993 Rebel Assault. You fly from a predefined path and slams from opponents. This way of playing is called tunnel-shooter."

If the average gamer doesn't want the complexity, then open up the pilot's seat to a gamer that does. Put said average gamer in the turret of a capital ship.

Leave the fighters and the flying to either the ai or a capable player. I'd imagine there's be a lot of "LF Pilot" in chat...
