No Open Space Combat? NO DEAL!

The lack of open space combat in this "Star Wars" game is really disconcerting. It's just not epic without open space combat like the way Battlefront II did it. I know they claim to have some big space project going on, but with no details out we can safely assume that has been scrapped due to poor reception of the game at launch.

I downloaded "Star Trek Online" which is also free to play, and although SWTOR beats it on so many levels, the open space combat in Star Trek Online blows away anything SWTOR has. Sorry, it's been said a million times, but Space Combat on Rails (a la StarFox) is just not fun.

Let me know when you get your "Big Space" project up and running and you can have my money again. Until then, my wallet (and subscription) is closed.

Good Day, Sir.

Welcome to the first year of SWG. It's like deja vu all over again.

Well then, in 2014 or 2015 they can have my money again... if they do it right. Sorry, but this is Star Wars and so much of what we all loved about the movies revolved around the epic space battles. The missions on rails crap they have just doesn't cut it. Star Wars without open space combat might as well just be called "Wars".

I cannot wait to be flying around space ,and as patient as I am trying to be hearing" just wait till next year "really puts a bad taste in my mouth it's barely 2013 and seeing dates like 2014 and 2015 just bugs the heck out of me. The money they could make offship designs and furniture alone would be staggering. I just see $$$ slipping through their hands. We are people we like nice cars we like fancy houses there is no reason for me to believe this would not boost revenue through the roof. And imagine the new professions that could come from this and the pvp. I really hope they add a turret option for your buddies if they are on your ship when you are attacked.

I know a concern of theirs is not to have a vacant space station or home world but what if you had to bring your ship in to be repaired refueled and there would be a debuff which you cant fly for an hour or so after docking better yet get rid of carrick and bring on the pleasure barge or a ship thats like a casino that has a plethora of social things to do !
