this game wouldn't be successful? The star wars theme is the least interesting thing about swtor. I always wanted to play an mmo that focuses on its story above all else and swtor offers that. I dont care if it was set in china, mars, africa, or whatever, I would have still been interested in a story based mmo. That is something that I always wanted to experience in WoW because of all the lore but blizz was never able to pull it off outside of cutscenes and the books. Believe it or not I got really interested with the lore and the characters in WoW and wanted to know more. I mean if you have to read there books to learn more about what happens to there characters and the loose ends then there is something wrong. It is one of the reasons I left WoW because I got tired of spending $15 a month to kill another boss that i never heard of before for more epics. I didn't care about the mounts, pets or any of that useless crap I wanted story. I don't even see how you can even call WoW an rpg now that the story is pretty much non-existent in the actual game your paying for.
AM I the only one that feels this way? I see all the time on the forums how many people hate all the story in swtor and that they just skip it and power level. That it doesn't "feel" like an mmo and more like a single player game. Well guess what, that is a good thing because it isn't an mmo. It is an mmorpg.
