The complication is that there are actually a number of different issues with very different causes and potential resolutions lumped together in this thread.

All we can say for now is 'we are actively working on the topic of character responsiveness'.

It's improved since then, but still the little bits of hesitation in the controls bug me several times per minute when I'm in combat. I don't know if this issue will make or break TOR, but if I could pick the most important areas for improvement (it's a short list - I love this game) control responsiveness would be in my top three.

My pet example: in WOW you could start casting a frost bolt, interrupt the cast by jumping, fire off an ice lance while in mid-air, land, and start mining a node the instant your character's feet hit the ground. Try doing something like that in TOR and I predict the instant cast either wouldn't go off or wouldn't go off until after you hit the ground, and you'd probably get a "can't do that while moving" error when you tried the harvesting action.
you just reminded me of another one of my pet peeves -- the bloody STUPID "can't do that while moving" error, which is most likely associated with this whole bugged combat/play/responsiveness thing. that happened to me in rift, as well, and it ANNOYS me to no end. i am NOT moving. i stopped moving WELL over a half-second ago, my feet were FIRMLY planted, so WHAT IS THE DEAL??

I heal for you. You kill for me. Seems a workable solution.
