The game setting is okay but the engine is a bloated horrible piece of crap that was made to compete when WoW launched. On a quad core with 16 gigs this is the game: AA in the game looks horrible. It's choppy on some planets where I'm the only one around. Some quest events bring the system to a slideshow as it is so horribly done. Every 3rd npc is a fat bloated rush limbaugh wannabee so it's no wonder the Old Republic fell, couldn't move to do anything. It's great playing overnight when I'm the only one on a planet or fleet at times. But hey they're folding probably 75% of the servers into the remaining 25% to get the populations up.
I really wish Turbine got a SW license as I'd like to see what they could do with it as they have a good track record with running/developing MMO's.
