Wouldn't it be awesome if, in the future, your characters companions could be other characters you've created? Say you have multiple characters. And they could somehow all be integrated into your story. Maybe threw the Legacy system. You could pick there back-stories, personalities, and relation to your character. And perhaps it could go beyond that. What if threw the Legacy system you could create the antagonist of your personal Star Wars saga.

I thought about that at first, but it would not work story wise from chapter 1 to 3 because everyone has major impacts to the overall story. In future chapters that would be awesome. A Avengers type thing would be cool where everyone comes together in one battle.

and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix

sounds like a GREAT idea,,but can it be done?

programming AI is prolly very hard,,but i think this could be one of the few really NEW things for SWtor

if they could do this,,i think it would bring many new players

I like the idea of lending companions to other characters in my legacy ala Dragon's Dogma (the pawn system).

Imagine this, my Sith Warrior decides to lend Jaesa to my Sith Inquisitor to help him determine whether a Jedi is faking their decision to defect to the Sith. Mind you, the issue here would be dialogue - responses for 8 different classes would take time. And most people only ever finish their companion convos with 2/8 classes, that's only 10 companions out of 40. So it would have to be a Cartel option or EA probably wouldn't be interested
