All that needs to occur in the game is for the conflict to continue in one guise or another. We know where the story in Star Wars eventually goes, but we have been left a few thousand years to get there - even as much as 1,500 years to the rise of Darth Ruin.

As an example of the span of time involved and the amount of history it can encompass, 1,500 years ago, in our own world, Mohammed had yet to be born. The Western Roman Empire had fallen within the past fifty years. England as a unified kingdom would not exist for another four hundred and fifteen years. By any historical standard, that is a long time.

Where SWTOR's story goes over the course of the game is up to the ingenuity of the writers, although I imagine they have a rough outline in mind. For out part, we'll just have to play it to see.
