SWG had tons of bugs and precious little content, but it was one of the best MMOs I ever played. Deep resource and crafting, the ability to be anything you wanted to be, player cities, rare Jedi in hiding, all of these things made the game great.
I had my own little mining empire on Sunrunner, I had a whole staff of players who mined for me, I told them what to mine and bought everything they could get me at good rates, and then sold it on at a slightly higher price to the armorsmiths and weaponsmiths on the server. Every single one of the best crafters was buying from me, I made millions, credit capped my main character. My whole guild was wearing the best sliced composite armor (in hot pink, ofc).
You just couldn't create that sort of niche enterprise in most MMOs these days.
