A lot of MMOs have small shout outs or eeaster eggs in game to popular culture or other well known things, just as small little tid bits. What kind would you like to see?

I wouldn't mind a Doctor Who reference, something like a cluster of random NPCs sitting in a random space port talking about their ship the "SS Blue Box" named "Doctor John Smith" and "Captain Jack <Doctor John Smith's Companion>" "Rosa Tlyin <Doctor John Smith's Companion>" and so on.

Absolutely none, thanks. I can get that in other games.

This game has 'Star Wars' easter eggs already... references to having Lil' Wayne references thrown in would just be odd...

Did any of the films include pop culture references? I don't remember any.

I mean, Snooki references aren't really the same when you are in a galaxy far, far away (Snooki might be the name of a crime lord or a Jedi master, though...).

I guess there are ways, but I don't want them to start looking for ways to make everything a joke, either.

Snooki the Hutt might be funny, but a little of this can go a long way, and too much can really ruin the atmosphere.
Free stuff (for you and me)! My referral link.

Wouldn't mind a few references, i'd like to see something like an Indiana Jones reference, maybe being able to find a lookalike in a cantina on tatooine, or having an internet meme on a poster somewhere randomly.

I would like to see some ester eggs, but they don't have to be pop culture references. I would prefer some old sci-fi mivie references or references to other movies from George Lucas. So that most people would not even get the reference. The Clone Wars show has some stuff like that, which I really enjoy.
