Vizair, originally from Kettemoor then got moved to Ahazi in the great server purge. Launch day to shut down vet. Pre-Publish 9 Jedi. I miss my Elder Robe and my Obi-Wan crystal.

It's easy to be nostalgic about SWG because there were so many incredible things in that game, but it also had serious failings.

Poor balance (with 32 classes, no big surprise), lack of content, irrelevance of the Galactic Civil War, a time period that made lots of Jedi silly, when it's obvious the biggest draw in any Star Wars game is going to be Jedi, very, very, very bad management, and so on.

SWG was at the same time the best and the worst MMO I've ever played, and the CU and NGE didn't help.

The biggest thing I miss though was the vision and scope of the dev team. Skill trees rather than classes allowed for interesting combinations (though in practice only some were viable). Non-combat classes and mechanics that involved them in the game. An entirely player created economy. Neat veteran rewards. Player housing and cities, even GCW bases. Tameable creatures. Large, immersive worlds (in SWTOR no water is deeper than your ankles) with great PoI's and things to explore. Reasonably fun events. True 3-D space and multi-PC crew ships. Even atmospheric flight at the end of the game, where you could take your x-wing and strafe ground targets.

SWTOR's devs are solid, but uninspiring. They are satisfied with a playable, fun game that's based essentially on a Star Wars skinned WoW-clone.
