someone asked you what would make the “perfect”
Star Wars MMO, how would you respond? Maybe you’d describe a
specific way you’d like to experience combat, or perhaps
you’ve already drawn up the schematics for the exact scaling
that needs to be used for lighsabers to be the correct size. With an IP
as big as Star Wars, there’s likely as many different answers
to that question as there are stars in the night sky. In his latest
wacky adventure into the sci-fi MMO ether, Reuben
“Sardu” Waters lets us know what his particular
star is blinking out in Morse code:

Having stated that
story will be a main pillar of gameplay in The Old
Republic, I for one am hoping for an MMO where NPCs will finally
acknowledge my character’s place in the world, going so far
as to react differently to the next person who wanders their way.
I’m not just talking the usual, “Oh, your faction
bar is only half full, so I can’t offer you Quest X
yet” either. I want to have an NPC say, “Hey man,
you were an asshat to my friends so if you want to help me all
I’m going to offer you is the chance to clean the mud out of
my boots” or conversely, “That thing you did on
Planet X was pretty awesome… here, take these boots!
They’re a bit muddy though; let me have the asshat standing
over there clean ‘em off for you first.”
