Here's word:

Movement of the game doesn't seem "proper" for full on Jedi/Sith. Sure they get one "hop" into combat deal you see in the videos, but you never see the guys force leaping great heights because they can (they probably move just like any MMO, small jump, a travel ability or mount at some point that suffers from the same restrictions). Or picking up obstacles in the world and knocking them over or hurling them.

Or even the cartoons where they climb up or repel down buildings.

Or pull the guns out of enemies hands.....or reflect blaster fire and knock them out of their hands.....or all the other cool things.

And then you have these light sabers that cut through damn never everything instantly and it takes ages for them to kill stuff and the creatures never appear to suffer any damage.

Been awhile since I've played KOTOR, but the combat in this game, if you strip away the light sabers looks like any MMO. I bet it even gets more MMO-esque the higher level you get, which would be longer and longer fights even for semi-weak enemies.
