I also played it over the weekend. The graphics are neat and the story content was fantastic that was nicely added to with some really good voice acting but it felt like a Wow with a Star Wars mod.
The ground combat was really nicely done but I felt like I was a generic character, I was really taken back by how few options to customize my toon there was. I've gotten used to being able to create ANYTHING or darn near it in the Cryptic character creation process. I felt like i looked like every other smuggler in town. It was an eye opener for me because I haven't played many MMO's since coming to STO, i forgot how many option we have as players here. From Ship to Toon we can customize everything in STO...I found that seriously lacking in SWTOR.
There are things they do well in SWTOR, the ground combat was nicely polished but I missed my star ship.
