Maybe it took you only 2 hours of play, but I assure you, for others of us it takes much longer.
Plus I thoroughly enjoyed FINALLY being able to play the HK-55 chapter (I had unsubbed for about a year due to financial circumstances: I was a sub beforehand for about 2 years, and then when I got back to it when my financial circumstances improved, and have subbed ever since.) The Zo-om companion is worth it just for the dialogue :-)

So far, I'm enjoying taking my time going thru the story on my primary character on one of the servers (I'm an alt-aholic, I play on all the servers) and depending on how the story goes, I'll decide which other characters I'll take through. Playing right now with my LS Bounty Hunter who sided with Empire (She's Mandolorian first and foremost though- but she doesn't necessarily follow what the Sith wish (her story in vanilla reflected that). She sided with the Empire because that's what the Vindicated originally did, and like the Mando in the Raven storyline on DK, she thinks it more a challenge to fight Jedi.

I do intend to take my LS IA agent thru too and see how the story differs. (he's saboteur- has been since agent storyline in chapter 3), and take one of my darkside sith thru as well. Then, I'll have to try the pub side :-)

I like the variety, what can I say?

So I definitely disagree with the original poster, I enjoy the new expansion, although I am still disappointed that you don't have a third option, to forego both sides and take jobs from whomever will pay (similar to how you can take jobs from both sides on Iokath). Because I can definitely see one of my smugglers as saying "to hell with the both of you, I'm going to work with the Hutts…"

I'm with you. I was really disappointed. I was hoping for more and that the ending would have made more sense rather then scourge/Kira telling you to go talk to them when you have a chance about a certain somebodies body. The only reason they released the previous expansions on a monthly bases was for the money. Why release an expansion all at once and have someone complete it within a week when they could release each part of it monthly and rack in that extra dough. I mean it's 15 dollars compared to 180 dollars they would make. I'm hugely dissapointed to with the lack of interaction you have with your LI if they are from your story class. I wouldn't even consider onslaught as an expansion. If that's all they have for the story so far then it is what it is but if they have the whole story done for the imp vs pub then they should have released it at once. I can't get behind the monthly release for some games it works like for TTG (before they went bankrupt) but for MMO's it shouldn't be done. I would be able to put up with a weekly release where they release a new part every week but a month to me is to long of a wait for an MMO. Hell if they are doing monthly I'd rather an option where I can buy the expansion right out rather then having to sub for twelve months

I really liked the new Flashpoint, but Onderon and Mek-Sha were disappointing to me, especially Mek Sha, which just seemed like a knock off Rishi.

I think this is the expansion we had to have, though. Somehow we've got to get from KOTFE and KOTET back to an Rep/Imp story and that doesn't happen overnight.

The game, the developer, and the players themselves have you notice way back into 5.10 to 6.0 that those companions would be be coming back. There were a lot of obvious hints that were given in the Observer quest. Like their lightsabers being the one they originally had. Hell, even in the cutscene devs made it obvious by that companion igniting his lightsaber. Everyone knew full well that they would come back in 6.0 one way or another.

I'm a subscriber to two accounts, when I find a more entertaining MMO I'm gone. I left WOW to play this. Maybe something else (not from Bioware) will come along.

You are all idiots.

If you believe this MMO is supposed to be primarily Story content then you might as well leave. Since 4.0 and 5.0 group content has dropped dramatically for these crappy monthly chapters to be released.

This is an MMO not a Single Player Game therefore, it should have a balance on story content and pve content which they surprisingly did. And whoever states that the monthly chapters helped bring more players to the game than you are wrong, if you look at the player base in 4.0 and 5.0 the graph will show that it has dropped dramatically. If you want story go play the new Fallen Order game.

^ That. There was way more than just two hours of content introduced here. I for one think Onderon is one of the coolest planets they've released yet (even if it is a little too small).
