Honestly I never played it. spent most of my time during these years playing either Everquest or Final Fantasy 11.

Not sure I entirely understand this sandbox concept

also heard they actually had bounties and people hung in cantinas on regular basis

so why did a game that sounds this awesome/immersive get tossed in the trash?

It was awful.

People liked it for the relationships they had while playing.

Also, certain Star Wars fans will love anything if you let them build a house on Tatooine.

It wasn't a game, it was a big, empty world with very little to do. It just happened to be Star Wars. These are the same people that like the prequels.

It's all rose colored glasses. SWG was terrible.

No.... It wasn't

(See I have an opinion as well )


There was a lot more than what you described. May not have been your cup of tea but the fact remains (and this CANNOT be disputed) that everyone has their own opinion of the game.

I played from launch to about 6 years straight and then went back now and again until it shut down.

Again, opinion. I am not correct nor am I wrong.

To you it was awful... To me, it was the best MMO experience I have had.

to each his/her own, I suppose

I didn't mind it too much, and it had some nice ideas.

It definetly needed some work all MMOs at launch do. Sadly, instead of taking a scalpel to it, they took a chainsaw.

You like the prequels, don't you?
