Star Wars? ToR? Really now. If you'd be playing this game without seeing the title screen, would you think "Star Wars" c'mon now, take the red pill.
So... Jedi, Sith, smugglers, troopers, blasters, lightsabers, droids, Corellian starships, star destroyers, asteroid fields, Imperial Navy versus Galactic Republic, Coruscant, Hoth, Tatooine, Alderaan, Ord Mantell, rancors, gundarks, tauntauns, dewbacks.... you're right, I have no idea why anyone ever connected this game to the Star Wars universe.
They have absolutely nothing in common!
