The devs always say the stuff they are working on is 'exciting' even when it's nonsense along the lines of perks that give 2% exp from warzones.

So when a dev is 'most excited' about something they are workin on I'm going to take it wih a pinch of salt.

Niche isn't about revenue lol. 10 people buying something that costs 40 =400. 30 people buying something that costs 10=300.
PROPER SPACE COMBAT PLEASE

I have a dream. A dream that EA bought that technology and uses it on the TOR space expansion

That's very impressive. Unfortunately I think the chances of seeing anything like that in SWTOR are 0.0000%, but maybe for Elite IV.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Frontier: First Encounters (Elite 3) rebuilt with that engine would be truly amazing.

So, don't speak for me. I loved X-Wing vs TIEFighter, X-Wing Alliance, and JTL. We had several hundred people in player instigated space battles in JTL often, and tons more in space, but not participating in the pvp.
the last good one was dark star one ,AFAIK,,all after that is mostly unplayable

The absolute lowest bar of expectation (in fact disappointment) would be queuing up for a "space warzone".
Loading screen -> you sit in a space ship and shoot other players, Moonbreaker style. ->loading screen, back on the ground.

The absolute highest bar of expectation is something like seen in the video. A galaxy to explore, with seemless atmospheric flight over planets, trading, dynamic missions popping up, PvP where it happens, PvP and PvE missions and giant battles. Also owning and customizing ships and manually landing/take offs. And of course, walk on ships. Everything seemless, no loading screens.

I would assume licensing agreements and discussions on buying it and whether it is compatible to TOR game engine.

Honestly though I do feel 3D space battles is whats missing in SWTOR. I am fine with the rail (LOL almost typed fail) gun space missions in the game. Nothing like blowing up other starfighters and watching battle cruisers and capital ships burn, imagining what the crew on board are screaming and what the opposite faction leaders wondering about the failure of the mission when you jump to hyperspace. /sigh

But yeah, player vs player PvP is fine and all. But what really wanted me to jump on this game was the potential to use walkers, gun turrets, air ships and fight other players with them, especially with intense PvP space battles.

This game has huge potential, but like all potential its unfocused and is taking to long to accomplish.

Well seeing that this necro'd 6 month old thread still shows how nothing has changed, I think it's a safe bet to assume BW dropped one of the most important aspects of Star Wars.
