..but the key selling point, the story, hmm, with an Imperial Agent 10, it's not really there yet.

I mean, TBH, the guy whose brother was assassinated by Hutts to take over his farm, voice over or no, it's look a hell lot like a farmer in Elwynn Forrest who got killed by Defias.

Mind you, the story is very good for a MMO, and a lot of thought when with it : it's just that the dialogue options appears to me ATM slightly cosmetic, and that the story, while engaging is not as engrossing as KOTOR.

So, you're 1/5th of the way through 1/8th of the story and it's worse than KOTOR.

Good to know.
I may now be playing with 140 ms ping (that sometimes jumps up to 240),
but I'll still kick your behind.
Enjoying the game again on Jung Ma.

I'm saying that the initial story is not as engaging as other Bioware games (like ME or DA)

Put spoilers in your title when you wanna complain about a new "thing."

You haven't even played through 3% of the total story yet? Does that count as 'initial'?

Don't get me wrong. I'm sure some people won't enjoy the story. Some people will also never experience all of the story. People do come in all shapes and sizes afterall.

Just trying to put things into perspective is all.

It's a spoiler that a farmer got murdered by the Hutts ?

(I was really disapointed by this quest, tbh. )

All in all, I would say the writing is superb, not totally on par with Bioware's 1 player RPGs, but pretty darn close. You gotta remember, they are writing stories and arc over arcs, tying them all together and having them be fun is a pretty tough task to complete, and so far, I think they have done just fine.

Honestly, I got more hooked into replaying KOTOR one month ago by the Endar Spire sequence.

I also mean that while the dialogue is indeed well written, well, the actual story (in this example) still boils down to ''bad guys drove me of my farm''
