Overhaul the talent system with some sort of replacement? Sure. But copy WoW, hell no!
Agree I hate it as well. I don't mind SWTORs besides there are much bigger things that need addressed then ruining the talent trees. It really feels like they dumbed it down and I don't recall many people I played with liked it.

God no. That mess is one of the many reasons I quit WoW.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Of most of the ideas that have been tossed around here, the talent one is probably the only feasible one.

And don't believe for a second that talent changes are the primary reason (or even a contributing reason) why people quit. There are a lot of vocal complaints about it, but relatively few people list that as a reason on their unsubbing form. In general, i think games should probably take one of two approaches: streamlined like WoW or insanely complicated like Rift. SWTOR is in the WoW circa 200708 mold of kind of sort of being in a nebulous gray area. The talents are there, but the choices aren't particularly meaningful.

I still don't think they'll dedicate resources to it right now, though. The one thing you have to credit Blizzard is that they will constantly iterate on their game. That doesn't mean the changes are always positive, but at least you know that almost every system is subject to change if they don't like it. Very few other developers are willing to make those attempts.
