I'm glad we aren't playing "your" STO then. I play video games for fun, not to have a second job.
And again, TOR was nice but the characters are too generic and its nothing groundbreaking. I'm pretty sure if any other MMO publisher had 3 years to turn out a game, it'd be full of storyline missions as well.
The only part of the graphics that impressed me was the detail of the environments. The characters themselves aren't any better than they were in KOTOR II - except almost every NPC seems to have a facial scar.
And the other guy above who is raving about the space combat - you can pick up Lego Star Wars and get the EXACT same space combat experience. Oh, correction - Lego Star Wars lets me flip and roll my space ship, TOR doesn't.
