1) swtor seems to be 98% a solo game, with occasional pugs (if you can find one).
2) I"m biased I know, because I was mayor of Tuskn Flats in SWG, but the social aspects of swtor seem ..... very weak.
3) sigh

--yes, swg was a great concept poorly executed in many ways, and killed by fiddling.
--Yet the social aspects were the best I have seen in a mmorpg in ten years.

No one would play this game long if it wasn't SW either.

SWG evolved into a game not worth playing. Thats why it's no longer around and good riddance really.

Were the housing communities in SWG ever populated where you saw people? I mean you could go to a house and look around if they let you in but other then decorating the house what else was there? Maybe I looked near the end when the game only had a few months left.

If it's decorating only then we have our ships here and they don't cost any weekly "rent" to maintain.

I think it's it more the playerbase than the game, I am social 8, have been grouped since staring the game hang out with friends and guildies, it's only a solo game if you make it one.. over that last few years in mmo's there seems to be this new I want to solo everything in social game, i guess times are changing, not always for the best.. /sigh I agree to a point I would like to see activities in the cantina and such, not that much of fan of player cities, I used to enjoy swg when the cantina on coronet was hopping, after player cities all that died, but we held events in our city but just was not the same.. pros and cons to everything
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Expectations lead to suffering

I would have, Star Wars blows. Bioware should have used their own IP.

Cancelled today for the same reason...99% single player game...cant keep paying to finish the single stories..allthough great im sure i can find similar or better single player games out there. Ill be back in a few months to see if anything changed. Doubt it...since GW 2 and Diablo 3 are coming out and they dont have any subscription attached...I think companies should seriously change the subscription methods. I hear many mmo's have become much better than since launch.( aoc for example)...but lost all their subscribers due to incomplete launch...im afreaid same will happen with swtor.
