It's hard not to hold ea responsible and they did everything possible to screw players over with f2p. ridicky hostilely overthrew bioware and hijacked most of their games. Middlefinger
The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.

Should we write a new companion and give him an interesting story hook? Hell no, just grab one of the Imperial companions and shoehorn him into the Republic plot. No one will notice.

If Disney was smart they'd get someone to make a good Mandalorian game or a bounty-hunter with Boba and the gang.

I would play it if the f2p model wasn't complete shite, and they didn't completely fuck over previous subscribers when they went f2p. When they did that, it was the easiest decision I ever made to never go back.

Google The Old Republic remove bitraider

Granted you will have to redownload the entire game but it removes that torrent client they use and greatly improves framerate/jittering.
Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

All true to an extent but in a RPG set in the movies timeframe you don't need to have Yoda, Qui-Gon or Obi (or Luke, Vader, whoever) play huge roles. You could bump into them here and there, cross paths, have some dialogue and feel like you are part of the same galactic conflict while still having main protagonists and antagonists who could get killed off or be your allies or be allies and then betray you... whatever the plot requires.

Think Jedi Academy where Luke was rebuilding the Jedi order and you were a part of that rebuilding. It still had an engaging plot.
Or SWG which also had many movie characters for side content like the rebel and imperial "themeparks". It can be done.

I don't really care what time period they pick... I just want that style of SW RPG again. Something set around the training of Yoda would be pretty cool.

I find the older lore to be considerably more interesting, but probably only because it was actually there to play and immerse myself in. Using the movie time periods and characters does limit the scope of what can be done story-wise, because you need to conform to certain outcomes. There is never going to be a plot twist where a character dies that you know lives through to the next movie. That's one of the most primal reasons why the prequel movies didn't work. I think KOTOR/2's storyline worked well because they went back so far. None of the characters were bound by plot-constricting invulnerability, so spoiler spoiler spoiler... the twist and ending of KOTOR2 was even possible. You couldn't really pull that off with the modern characters aside from the one you were directly controlling (so that they would "win the game").

Should have been KOTOR3: Mandalore's Revenge. Waste.

Now that Lucas (Georgie) is out of the game, I wish that they would actually drop the whole Old Republic thing entirely.

The only reason it came into existence was that GL was all like "nah I'd rather not have more video games messing with my awesome movies and stuff". Then someone came up with the idea that all continuity concerns could be circumvented by just going really far back in the past of the lore and GL was OK with that.

So now with the iron grip of GL gone, I'd like to see games in the vicinity of our beloved movies. There is still a lot of potential in there. For example, the whole post-RotS Order 66 era would make a great setting for many more games including RPGs.

There is no longer any real need to go 4,000 years back to some stupid Old Republic. You can have as much "old" republic as you want by going back to episodes I to III.
It would also be infinitely more interesting to interact with Qui-Gon, Obi, Yoda and all those muppets than some unknown dumbass called Revan.
