Anyway, the basic premise of the game is that the sith, who were long forgotten (probably assumed dead) have returned to wage war on the Jedi and the republic they serve. You as the player get to choose which side you choose to serve. The light, or the dark side. Although I feel that there are gonna be a whole lot of sith when compared to jedi. The Old Republic shows a lot of promise, but we can't get our hopes up just yet. The game has hit several snags and has been delayed several times. Though many other MMORPG players believe that SWTOR will be a flop, it remains to be seen how it will hold its ground when compared to WoW, or the newest MMORPG to hit the scene Rift.
Thank you George Lucas for providing me with a series of incredibly amazing films, books, and even games from the Star Wars saga. It all started with you. Thanks once again. Also, to those of you eagerly awaiting the new star wars novel "Deceived" you are not alone. Cover art of Star Wars: The Old Republic; Deceived.
Long live the Sith.
