When I first heard about TOR, I was pretty excited. I was excited for a couple of reasons. One, because I love Star Wars. Two, because I loved KOTOR and knew Bioware would make a great game. Which they did. However one of the things TOR just feels like its missing, to me, is the space combat(you know, STAR wars?).
Yes, I know there is a very shallow space rails mini-game. But space battles were a very big part of the SW movies, and deserve to be an equally important part of gameplay as ground combat in any MMO based on SW. Fortunately, a Dev post shortly after launch game me some hope for the future:
"Space Combat – We will continue to add missions to the space game. We also have a special project going on right now that will expand space gameplay in a significant way... for now the details will have to remain under wraps."
Unfortunately, that was half a year ago and as far as I know there has been no real mention of expanding space content since. Which is why I'm not still playing. When I level my characters I want space to be a meaningful part of the game, not something you do when you get bored that has no real impact on anything else.
So. Bioware. I heard you're having sub issues. Maybe if you added some real STAR wars to TOR some of those people who left would come back ;-)
