Star Wars Galaxies initially actually was pretty good as a sandbox mmo with no force users.

I didn't say it wasn't possible to create such a game, just that I'd have no interest in it. There's nothing special/exciting about the Star Wars universe besides the Jedi/Sith conflict, at least for me.

Personally I think for any Star Wars MMO you pretty much have to go with no force users because otherwise you have a gazillion sith/jedi -- and that never existed in that time frame either.

The bigger problem is that you can't balance them properly. That is, if the Jedi/Sith are balanced with the other classes, then they aren't really Jedi/Sith.

But that's an MMO problem, and that's not what we are talking about here - it's a single player RPG. There's no problem having the main character (or group of characters, depending how they do it) being Force-users, as there aren't enough of them to dramatically upset the balance.
