Too bad the game will look nothing like this. BTW, why couldn't we have had THAT for a movie instead.

That would have been much much better as a movie than the crap we got.

+1 to the movie idea. I still haven't watched the BS cartoon they released and called star wars.

I was definitely blown away by the trailer. If only they could capture that kind of action in a video game. I'm assuming it'll be an offline RPG like the first two KotOR games. That's just fine with me. Single player RPG are able to capture a totally different entertainment experience than their MMO counter-parts. Instead of grinding away for hundreds of hours you can explore an area without leaving the main storyline to much. Granted, it's more restrictive, but still very open and a ton of fun. I played through both of the first games more than once.

I hope they make the dark vs. light more of a gray area. In the past you have to be a real asshole that enjoys watching the suffering of others instead of a person using the wrong means to a (seemingly) right end, which I think better applies to the Sith creed.

Burzy, it's an MMO.

Hopefully we can get a HF presence on this game. This is gonna be a definite play for me.
