Have played many mmorpgs for many years (probably to many)..

 

Great game with everything you would expect.  I would recommend focusing on the story even though your instinct will be to level as fast as possible.  Space Ship battles are epic with experience gained each time.  But the real value in this game comes from the complex story lines and light/dark choices.  Companions are awesome and well balanced to meet the needs of any style of play.  

 

Pros:

Tons of abilities (will use a few macros and keybinds)

Great class choices (the usual suspects)

Working Economies  (plus many 'earned' marks)

Companions to balance your class specific (can also build skill level and sell items)

Space ship/Travel/Battles (not pvp ship vs ship, sorry)

Light side Dark side slide that builds with the choices made in story line

 

Cons:

Did eventually lead to what felt like gear grind, but that can be said about most of these type of games.  Part of the allure even.  Although this game is vast and fun it did not live up to the hype for me.  I have been anticipating this release for years, as did alot of gamers.  Followed the creation of the game, etc and when the final game is finally released seemed to be just a spin on every other mmorpg (if you dont skip the story arc then you will have a better experience).

Still gold sellers (not atypical) spamming trade chat.

 

All in all awesome game DONT SKIP THE STORY , to many players i know just skipped them (spacebar) just to level quick.

 

Good Luck!
