I have a feeling that either because of lack of time or because it would have required to fundamentally change parts of the game engine Zenimax never fully remade the combat system from scratch, but just heavily modified the previous implementation which wasn't designed for action combat in the first place. That's why I think the combat feels "half assed" to some of us. Of course that's just speculation on my part.
The combat is OK, it just doesn't feel as fluid and controlled compared to some of the other games out like WoW, TERA, GW2 etc... In those games you hit a button and get a very distinct response in game consistently. in ESO, the response is not so precise or consistent.
Like squishy brakes on a car, they get the job done well enough and you can live with it, but there are much better feeling and tighter controlled brakes.
I've never played SW:TOR. I loved the initial 3 movies, but that's where my SW fandom ends. I've never had any desire to 'exist' inside the SW universe.
Yeah, I've neither the time or money for multiple subs/MMOs either. I basically had to make the choice of continuing to play ESO by myself or going back to WoW to play with my husband.ESO does do questing and story quite well, but that's about it, IMO. The other aspects of the game such as grouping and combat specifically, are just done better in other games. I'm not monetarily able to have more than 1 MAYBE 2 subs at a time going, and those ESO was just not strong enough to keep mine.
As far as combat, my only issue with it was the delay between weapon swaps which it sounds like they've fixed. I quite enjoyed the "hunter" I made (sorcerer w/bow & pets) and my DK 'pyromancer' was amazing, though I quit playing it around the time they started nerfing that and the 'infinitank' builds. Never did get to try the Nightblade 'warlock', that was on my list of things to do.
I really loved the variety ESO offered in terms of class builds. It's been really difficult going back to WoW to what are now gutted classes and honestly the worst system of travel in the genre, I swear. Words cannot express how much I desperately miss wayshrines.

Beyond that, you will need to pay the subscription for the game on both consoles (as well as PC), but in addition will have to pay for the Xbox One XBL Gold subscription. I don't believe you will need a PS+ subscription to play it on PS4.
