Ten years from its release, I think people will look back on the scope and quality of storytelling in SWTOR and realize its impact on popular culture.

Ah, KOTOR. One of the greatest games of all time. Thanks for at least acknowledging it in this small way.

For such an important game bring Story and companions you care about what was the choice behind a title and CC give away on facebook.

Would have thought as crazy as this is but wouldn't a story based event have been more in keeping with both what KOTOR brought to TOR and what sets TOR apart from other MMO's. Rather than a title you have to purchase from the Cartel market.

The internal struggle between good and evil

^ This is the only aspect I disagree with, as this game doesn't have any feel of galactic conflict.

Never has.

True. Your character does it's tasks while you have the feeling that the important galactic conflict happens elsewhere.

I am deeply sad there is not an in-game event. It would have been such a fun way to weave the history into SWTOR a bit more deeply. There are already quests here and there that do that (Imperial, Nar Shaddaa, for instance) as well as Flashpoints. It would have been so awesome if the Imperial Reclamation Service on one side and perhaps the Republic Intelligence folks for the Pub side had gone treasure hunting in both factions to uncover an old Star Map or some such. Darn. That would have been fun. Now, on the bright side, glad that there is ANY acknowledgement... that part makes me happy. But could have been so much more, for the game that really was the genesis of this one.
