Not hating on anyone, just standing by my statement.
There's no where to go but up for Episode 7, there's no way it's going to do worse than the prequels. Not by fans, not by critics, and certainly not by the most hardcore blind. It'd have to be 2011's Smurfs level of awful to do any worse.
I think VII is going to be great. Based on the Prequels, there is room for improvement. I'm sure it will be very good.
As to the question in the title, probably. Episode VII will bring Star Wars back into the mainstream. The biggest thing in Star Wars this day and age has been TCW. So I'm sure VII will give TOR some sort of notoriety. I'm sure new fans will look for a Star Wars game and find TOR.
