You know that's a great point. lol But it always seems like DEV teams want to place events 1000 or so years before the regular storylines. Look at SWTOR, now that's a great example of what your talking about. One would think the tech level would have gone far far high over their 1000 years, vs what you see in that game to what we get in the movies. lol
But hey they want to keep it close to what we like I guess.
So in a 1k years, they're still living in what amounts to a medieval time period with swords and spells and whatnot.
Why does that trouble me?
People were running around with swords for a lot longer than a thousand years on Earth. What would be troubling is if fashion and architectural style hasn't changed in all that time. Well... unless fashion works on thousand year cycles there. :p
