Why didn't you take this much time to create all the planets? And make them bigger so it can be more of a sandbox? Like SWG
Bioware's making a great game here. This design has clearly built upon what worked already and made it better.
SWG was a failure of a game and the dang ghost towns were what drove people away. Yes they were kind of fun, but when they were always empty it just told people "you shouldn't be here, nobody else is". No matter what sandbox elements we eventually get, they should never be like SWG that showed just how empty the world was.
