#1 : Other

I would very, very much like to see expanded cosmetic customization for our starships. Perhaps even some conveniences - reasons to be on your ship or even to bring others.

Once a companion has been romanced and their quest arc completed, they become about as interesting as a bulkhead. I understand it's quite impossible to give a companion a never-ending stream of conversation options since they have to be voiced, but it would be nice if my companion responded to me a bit... friendlier? I don't really know what I'm asking for here.

1. Class Story. I don't care what Bioware says - I want more story for the specific classes. If they can't do entire Class Arcs, I'd still want branches to stories (planets, etc) based on my class. If they can't do that, then just have a few significant specific quests that are class exclusive, even if there is no longer more lengthy class stories.

But do SOMETHING. Makeb is what I consider to be '1/2 an expansion', because it is mostly only reflective of faction, not class. Improve on this, BW...

2. Companions. Ideally, I want more companions stories/arcs/interactions/features, based on the *existing* ones. It doesn't have to be done all at once. In one patch, only 1/5 of the companions needs story additions (1x8 = 8 additions). Give us more romances, companion specific missions, more abilities for them, customization, etc. Again, it doesn't have to be done all at once, but just make sure every class have something new to do with their companions. As a Consular, I'd really like Zenith (regardless of whatever cost it may take to use Troy Baker more, haha) to become a m/m romance option (sorry ladies!), or at least get a new story addition where upon completion, might open up a new weapon type to him or ability. Again, like with class stories, just do SOMETHING good.

3. Planets. This is a constant. I always like new planets. 2-3 per year is good. 2012 was a big disappointment here, but 2013 with Makeb and Oricon (and kinda CZ-198), was 2/3-3/4 what I'd want every year . Good job, and with the possible datamined planet names, I'm optimistic about 2014.

4. Mini-games. Pazaak and Pod Racing in particular, but also more. Integrate them into the existing world, cantinas, etc. I'd love to hang around a Corusant cantina, and see other players come into it due to a daily/weekly quest to play pazaak in a tournament in randomized planets.

5. Other. Simply, I want much more use out of the existing game world. Things like the Bounty Hunting Week is a nice start, but I want whole new mini-story arcs (several missions) that make use of existing planets and locations more. The assets are there, so use em! And by this, I mean new sub-zones and story, not just 'kill x'. And new story should also not be filler, but just be new Lv 55 (or maybe Lv 60 soon enough??) areas.
I haven't done Makeb yet but it seems that some content for RotHC involves going to Lv 55 areas of planets? I like that, at least in itself; I'll have to try it when I get there.

My main request is that Bioware, on top of making new locations and content, should also use existing things as well, in order to enforce a more interesting continuity. Adding a new companion like Treek is something I accept, but I much more prefer they add more interactions, choice+consequence (romance, friendship, rivalry, sidestories), and customization with the existing ones. Adding a new planet for dailies is something I accept, but I much more prefer either entirely new planets for the main story arc, or adding new important areas/maps/subzones to the lower level planets.

I'd give launch SWTOR a 6.5/10, 2012 SWTOR a 7/10, and 2013 SWTOR a 7.5/10. I hope to one day give this game a 8.5/10 (9.0+ seems unlikely, as I'm far too nitpicky with certain things)

To clarify my stances on other things:

Operations - Not yet, as I'm only Lv 42. . Obviously, I insist that at least 2 entirely new (not hard modes) Operations are added every year. Any more than that is nice, but not something I require once I'm raiding.

Flashpoints - A few every year, or several every couple years. The current rate is just barely acceptable, but with just a nudge forward, would be just fine. Rehashes of dungeons suck, and I appreciate at least what a slimed down Rift is doing; they redo most of the assets WITHIN dungeon locations, give them a new (present-in-timeline) story, with new bosses (Realm of Twisted Dreams and Return to Deepstrike). I enjoy that a lot more, if devs are gonna reuse an area.

PvP - I don't PvP so I don't care. I appreciate it when there's at least 2 solid PvP related patches every year though (not counting entirely new expansions).

Space Combat - Haven't tried GS yet, but intend to. When it comes to space combat, I just want it to be fun but also relate as much to my 'on foot character' as possible. Adding companion buffs was something I just learned of, and I'd be in support of stuff like that. Also want more freeform PvE space combat.
In terms of PvP, I want the Star Wars Battlefront 2 thing of spending part of the battle in space flight, but THEN land (along with other players) to attack enemy ships from the inside. Add in guild ships and...

Crew Skills - Haven't delved enough into this, except I can say that I always want crafting to be important and relevant. More than it is now...

Character Customization - I'd want a partial overhaul really. Currently, its too restrictive. Silly even, when we see we can change body type to 'big', but can't choose states that are in-between.

Legacy - Can't say much here, except that I wouldn't mind additions to this system. No rush for me.

Races - On one hand, honestly, I don't care. I know the restrictions Bioware is working with, so whatever.
On the other, I want an entirely new Wookie expansion with their own Lv 40 (starts there, requires purchase or existing character at Lv 50, like Death Knights in WoW) to 50 storyline as their own class, then they pull a Pandaria, to either join the grateful Republic to less personal gain, or the resentful/hateful Empire to more personal gain/payment. Class would be something like 'Wookie Bowcaster'. Voicing would be easier, as it would be mostly growls , and we just assume other people have personal translators :P

New Class - Unless they're part of a major major addition (like my Wookie idea), I'd say no. And I think it'd be a waste to have a whole 3 Chapters of Class Story for it. I prefer advancements to existing stories and mechanics.

New planets, first and foremost. New areas, new quests, more to do. Need more Flashpoints too.

I'd like to see class stories revisited but at this point the bulk of the story is complete and the most we'll probably get is a mission or two every now and again. I'd definitely like to see a few more Emperor's Wrath missions.

If I don't get class story in 2014 I'll just take my attention and money elsewhere. Plenty of MMOs and SP games out there. It's no worry to me
