Saw this tweet from a former BioWare Austin video editor and thought I'd share.
The #swtor Mood system was designed for the Cinematics team, and soon it will be available to players. Hooray!
This is from the patch notes:

Cool but they're missing one...The troll face. That's an important one.

It's a fun idea. I wonder if they will carry over into cutscenes?

This is neat but I don't really get it... So we'd have this mood plastered on our faces during the entire cutscene, as our new "default"?
Say I set "stunned" as my expression: Then my character hears something stunning in a cutscene. Does he look "Doublestunned" or just nothing changes?
I dunno, hopefully they just let us set our moods out of cutscene. (I still think it's a cool idea.)

The moods/facial expressions you can choose don't affect the cutscenes since those a pre-made with the appropriate expressions; I checked to make sure I wasn't going to be talking out my, well, you know. I also took video of the each facial expression but I have to upload it.
