I was drooling over ToR until I found out about the 'stylized realism' of the game. It looks like Team Fortress 2. Yet I have faith in BioWare that the game won't suck other than my discontent with the art style. I was hoping it would be more realistically conceptualized, but the WoWish cartoon style has its benefits. It'll run way smoother for one thing so it'll maximize the gaming experience.
What has me excited about the game is that every single npc in the game, no matter how minor, will have Mass Effect style voice dialog. Which is unheard of in MMO's. Their supposed focus on story will hopefully remove the 'grind' out of the MMO. Nothing wastes more time than having to kill hundreds of monsters just to get a quest item or whatnot. Some complained about not being able to be a Mandalorian (which would of been awesome) but if they made that choice available everyone would be a Mandalorian.
I used to play Galaxies back in the day and loved it until Sony came in to the picture. So I'm happy to see a new installment in the MMO scene coming from someone as reputable as BioWare. One thing I will miss about Galaxies is that ToR will have no neutral faction. I used to make tons of credits being a mercenary assisting the Empire or the Rebel players in PvP.
I'm still not sure I'll be playing the game though.
