Yeah that's what I'm thinking, which is basically just another "level" of what we've got.

Now if it's multiplayer, that's a different kettle of fish.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Sounds like it's still just single player on rails fail. What genius thought this was worth dev resources?

I see it as a minigame until the SSSP gets implemented.

Although they could have skipped that and make Pazzaak, a Nar Shaddaa casino and Swoop racing instead, until the "real" space is finished.

All or any of the things you mentioned would have been resources better spent than more railshooter missions.

Everyone has given up (or quit).

Something is coming (SSSP) in late 2013, just have to wait and see as Bioware EA aren't prepared to say anything.

Well.....the SGR topic has over 9000 posts and they will have what they wanted. If people did not give up perhaphs we could make this happen....

This. It's just a carrot, nothing more. I doubt we'll even see it in 2013 Goretzu.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

The thing is, the SGR crowd had something specific to work with (Erickson at the Guild Summit last March saying the writers were actively working on SGRs)

The only things we have about SSSP are generalities ("totally different pixel space").

If they said, just once, with clear language, "not-on-rails open 3D space combat" at any point ever, many people would feel better about waiting. Even if it weren't in 2013, I would personally be relieved that the SSSP is some form of "unrails"

I've seen people claim it's not on rails, but these are players who are either hoping, or claim to have an unnamed "inside source" , or who point to the "pixel space" quote and say "what else could that possibly mean."

sgr is just a few easy convo tweaks. Space needs a complete code rewrite. Sgr took over a year and it's still only promised for next quarter for some of the game. I've given up, sub cancelled.
