After playing the beta and reading the forum I've realized that this MMO is anything but even remotely like WoW. This is a "themepark" MMO: Your hand is held throughout the game, in this way it's absolutely useless to return to old areas and the exploration factor is hardly in there. It is true that WoW had this too, but it was heavily disguised due to the fact the game was OPEN WORLD

From my beta experience, TOR feels more like Guild Wars (PvE part) than a traditional MMO (UO/EQ/DAoC/WOW, etc). I would call it a cooperative KOTOR with a subscription. I'll be playing it, will probably do a light and a dark side story and then move on to Guild Wars 2. Then, when Bioware adds more content, go back to TOR for a bit.
