There doesn't need to be anything hardcore about this game. Star Wars was never about being "hardcore". It was about being fun and entertaining with a storyline that everyone could get behind. This game was never meant to be WoW with lightsabers. It was meant to be something more, and, imo, it is.
Take another look at Teladis' sig pic man, I think it may very much have been meant to be WoW with lightsabers.
Hard to argue with hard evidence.
