Editorial - A Look at Jedi in Star Wars Galaxies

Since the release of the New Game Enhancements, Star Wars Galaxies has allowed players to create Jedi from the very beginning of the game and are one of the most popular professions available to players. However, the SWG timeline takes place when the Jedi are being hunted down by the Empire and - at least in the movies - are all but extinct. In SWG, Jedi are free to run to and fro, and never attract attention from the Empire or other NPCs. Chris "Spare" Higgins takes a look at the current version of the Jedi profession and tries to come up with an answer to the question of whether Jedi should be so prominent in the gameplay of SWG.
First and foremost no Jedi in their right mind would go tearing through any public place wielding a lightsaber or wearing the robes of the Jedi. If the Empire caught wind of a rebel Jedi, Darth Vader would be on the first Lambda-Class Shuttle to find this golden child. Jedi should not just be a profession; it should be the alpha class of the game. Not necessarily a "win" button, more a class that stands out above all the rest.
More is just a click away. You don't want to miss a word!
