I checked.... After I saved it, it's still in exactly the same condition it was before I even arrived.

I'm even beginning to suspect the whole universe is just an elaborate re-enactment of something important that happened to the real "Chosen One". I swear Bob The Sith outside that Republic base keeps getting up and resuming his position every few minutes. I mean if they were really well-trained Imperials, they should be harder to kill than one-armed geriatric toll both attendants. Something is fishy.
Well they can't instance every single planet now, can they? Well they can, but then everyone will cry how it's even more single-player than before...

Bioware makes roleplaying games? I thought they made movies where players' can play anything they want, as long as it's the character they wrote for you.

Or they could make a giant open world with an ongoing, endless conflict where heroes are everywhere but none are super-human enough to change the world on their own.

I think they call it an MMO.

Oh it's time for this thread again? I'll have to check my calendar. Well, let me get out the standard response:


It's a MMORPG. They all work like this. In City of Heroes I and 23 of my closest friends defeated Emperor Cole...then we did it again. In Everquest II, my guild and I defeated the great dragons of old....then people started one grouping them when the level range expanded. In WoW, the almighty Lich King fell....200-300 times a week.

1/10 Try harder OP.

I don't want to play a MMO like that. I want to play a MMO like this. If you don't, there are literally hundreds of other games that might fit your needs. Beats complaining on a message board.

And you are free to go play any of them, I always viewed SWTOR as an MMO for MMO haters and so I'm here. Sure it has it's problems but making your character special is definitely NOT ONE OF THEM.

And other MMOs have your so called " super-human"s who change the world as well, it's just that they are all NPCs

True but WoW had it so after you beat a quest line the random enemy npcs changed. The only example I can recall is Sentinel Hill around Cata. After you did the local level 15 (think it was 15, could have been 20) storyline the random troll/orcs turned into Defia Brotherhood members.
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.
The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

thats what i liked about the SW story. you never feel like you're saving anything. you feel like you are setting up something big, chasing prey across the galaxy, and then its a none stop roller coaster of revenge.
I was made to fly, and you were made to die...

Yea, I get that each person gets to experience that "hero" affect... but when we go overboard with it... it quickly losed its savor.
i understand and share your feeling, hate when they make me some sort of demi-god responsable for the salvation of the galaxy.... i mean, i certanly don't want my character to be a no-named random who nobody recognises becouse he has never atchived anything heroic and extremely difficult, but i neither want him to be the sole responsable for the fate of planets.
