Star Wars Galaxies Get Vehicular

Eurogamer has word that the Battle of Hoth is now being recreated in Star Wars Galaxies, the MMOG by SOE set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Chapter 11: The Battle of Echo Base, has launched, adding vehicle combat to recreate the epic battle scene that opened The Empire Strikes Back. Rebel snowspeeders or Imperial AT-STs are usable in the battle, which apparently features appearances by Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and R2-D2. And if my tauntaun dies before I reach the first marker? Well then I'll see you in hell!

Ok, with all that in mind, what would you guys tell a none-initiated MMOG player wanna-be? In other words, I just graduated from worthless dial-up/sat internet to (breathe the fresh air) DSL. (Yes, if you're wondering, satellite internet is reasonably fast, but the latenecy is an online-game killer, ie. 1000+ pings) I'm curious to know what good MMOG I should check out. First rule: NO FANTASY CRAP! WoW does not interest me in the slightest. I'm thinking more like EVE. Any suggestions?

I have been playing since May 2007 and haven't paid a dime of "real" money. I generate enough in-game credits to pick up 30 and 60 day game card codes off other players. If this approach ever dries up I am gone. I think the appeal for me has morphed into this morbid fascination of just how long can I keep going...

Well SWG is a unique MMOG even post NCU so I think while they are sure to loose folks for SW:tOR, anyone who still plays SWG doesn't 'because' it's Star Wars, but because they like the game. Those who wanted a real Star Warsy MMOG left SWG some time ago IMHO, and that includes myself.
