I was told this game was WoW + better story + better crafting + no grinding. It is WoW - customization - end game - addons - good pvp - arena - LFD + space combat + voice overs + interactive story... That's all. So many negatives not enough positives. Looking forward to when this game gets better.

WoW is awful, it's just the only monthly pay MMO that had any longevity from 2004 till now. It does not have depth that's absolute rubbish and it was ruined by add ons, macros and the like, although they are only a minor reason as to why it went downhill, the main points were horrific story lines and quests, terrible look and feel and a complete lack of variation.
Worship the mighty Hutt planet leaders! Moving incredibly slowly with their tiny arms and huge body mass which is easy to hit with any weapon!

Mythic Entertainment killed Warhammer Online and the remnants of that company are going to kill SW:TOR. If you think that EA is to blame after allowing 3+ years in development and $130+ million dollars, you are nuts. Most game studios would kill for that kind of support from their publisher. Anybody who thinks this game was going to get drastically better with another year of development is really deluding themselves. EA used to be the kiss of death, but now they are just as likely to put out a decent game as they are a stinker and unfortunately, SWTOR falls in the "blah" area between the two.

Ask WoW to introduce lightsabers for elves.

I want this game to be more like Guitar hero, it makes sense people, do not be blind fools for not seeing this!!!!!!!!

Since we are out in the open, can we put Chuck Norris and ponies too? I really like those things, and I think everybody in here should like what I prefer.

I don't want it's Quests. I want it's bells and Whistles. Macros and addons have never moved me out of fire btw. I did that on my own.

Honestly, the best review I've seen for SWTOR yet. Nailed it in like two sentences.

Brevity is an art form.

Its as simple as that.
I have a feeling that a lot of people are burned out of World of Warcraft;s setting. It's not that they dislike the gameplay. Most probably still love the game play; it's very polished and responsive and the dev's have done a good job over the years of keeping mechanics and class skills relevant and engaging. I think people are just tired of the setting and story.

I'm one of those people. Every time I'd hear someone complain that SWTOR is doomed to fail because it's "just another WoW clone", I thought to myself: "I sure hope it's a WoW clone because the game play is still very fun."
