I'd give it a try Sepharoth, you don't have anything to lose with it
WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.

Free-to-Play players will earn experience more slowly, for example, and several aspects of the gameplay experience are limited
I'm leaning more towards your interpretation though.
Okay, I think people are missing the real question.
Is the 1 to 50 experience worth playing? Yes. It is.
Exp gains a slower? I remember grinding in final fantasy like I had no life. It didn't bother me. In fact, the extra hours it added were part of the reason I enjoyed it.
Only 2 bars? You don't really need a crazy amount of bars till 50 when you have to have both pvp and pve abilities on your bars.
Its free. You don't need to ask us if its "worth it". You can just trying it and find out for yourself. Without spending money.
Well I've only played the trial (so up to 15/end of prologue) but I would say yes, absolutely it's worth it.
Frankly, I've found the writing in the Imperial Agent story at least to be superior to anything that was in KOTOR 1 (I have yet to play KOTOR 2). I've been playing it basically as a singleplayer game and having fun. The MMO hotkey mashing combat is tiresome, but then again I guess it isn't *that* much worse than the combat in most RPGs. Even the throw away quests are more enjoyable than what I've seen in many RPGs.
Like you I'm not interested in any of the PvP or social stuff, only in a good Star Wars story and that's what it's been so far. (though the Flashpoints are little mini-stories in themselves so you might want to check those out)
(Sith Warrior is also great from what I've seen of it, just a pure powertrip... wasn't into the Jedi Knight side of things myself, just a bit too Mary Sueish for my tastes, though maybe it gets better)

Now if we are talking about a real f2p model? Its crap.
The OP is looking at this as an extended trial mode / single player game.
Basically, in this ONE CASE. It is totally fine for what this player wants to do.
I think at lot of people aren't reading the OPs post.
