The storyline re-playability is crap. Play it once, its all the same with little difference.
the differences are often as shallow as "fight NPC #12656" vs "Dont fight NPC #12656"
the choices are shallow and meaningless save for slightly different dialog.

How would I fix that? Branched storylines, not just dialog trees. Make it so that if you press 1 for a dialog choice, it becomes a slightly different story then if you press 2.

Do I think this will happen? No, its too late, it would require an entire over-haul of the entire game, voice actors to be brought in again, I know it will never happen. But I'm still unsatisfied that the story is so controlled..

Story wore off on me after 20 levels. But I first played a Jedi Knight - his responses/dialogue is terrible and totally out of character "They wont stand a chance against a Jedi" such an egotist, really put me off.

The Bounty Hunter however is pretty cool. His responses made me laugh a few times. I can imagine that replaying them will get very boring. Thank you bioware for the Keyboard ... but without bioware's famous 'story' ... its just a bland and empty game imo.

I agree, the stories are horrible.

The stories are on the same Rail used in Space Combat. There really is no choice, its just an illusion.

everyone who says the play for the story are actually saying that they play 1 hour a week and havent hit lvl 30 yet. All aspects of this game are crap, story included.

7 years of playing MMO's, had to buy a new keyboard other day because I broke my Spacebar...

Broke #'s button before, because of a years time spamming the most useable Specials. never the Spacebar and never in such a short period of time.

Clearly this is not the game you are looking for.
