First off, KOTOR 2 was done by Obsidian. Secondly SWG is done by SOE with Lucasarts input, and honestly after the last 2 rapings (CU/NGE) just let it die already.
I get the magazine for free and was reading the article, which sound totally like major rumor fluff. Also a rumor was that the PC only game Dragon Empire or whatever they are doing is also going to the PS3. We shall see.
As for Bioware doing a MMO, why not? Mass Effect has shown that they can do huge outdoor terrain, and travel between the planets. Throw in some wookies and some lightsabers and I'd be a happy camper. As for PC or Console, who knows but I think it would be a travesty to have something like this on a console. Then again maybe it's why Microsoft if gearing up with it's keyboard attachment for the 360 controller.
And as for KOTOR 1, I thought it was perfect. Excellent Story, Game Looked great for the time, not overly linear except the start and end of the game, freedom of choice, voice action etc. Which is why when I think of KOTOR 2, I get angry, upset and want to cause people at Obsidian bodily harm for fucking up what coulda been a great sequal.
