So when doing a quest, I'm told that I will be given a weeks credits for completion.
I get 50 credits upon completion. Ok I can understand that they don't pay a lot, but if a
weeks credit = 50
Then WHY does 1 song on the jukebox = 2 weeks credits????
Don't we think 1 song for 100 credits is a little ridiculous??????
Does anyone actually use the Jukebox at that obscene rate???

In this game, we are the 1%.

That shouldn't matter. 100 credits per song is not going to get people to use the feature.
Now if it were 1-5 credits, I could see people sitting in the cantina, RPing and listening to the jukebox

Not sure what level you're at. But by 27 (where I currently am) 100 credits is often less than the cost of a speeder taxi. In other words, pocket change. I'd be more than willing to drop 100 creds on a jukebox song.

100 credits is nothing by lvl 25.

1. Provide details of the quest before we can make proper judgement.

2. Maybe the economy of that planet is so crappy that a weeks pay is 50 credits. Hey look at different countries of the world. In NA, the minimum wage could pay a whole month supply for another person in another continent.

Gameplay and story dissonance, bro. It's just a gameplay money sink vs. story stuff.


For example, in Oblivion, a man complains "I got fined four gold for littering! Littering! That's almost a year's pay!"

A single apple costs six gold.

Pay is not just about credits, you're forgetting the large number of benefits afforded to most individuals.

For example, their lives...
