The story picks up a bit afterStar Wars: Knights Of The Republic ended (but about 3,000 years before the movies' timelines). The story unfolds during the war between the Galactic Republic (Jedis and friends) and the Sith Empire. And from the looks of things, the Siths are winning. While there isn't much out there yet, but this footage is lovely, especially for an MMO. But it sounds like it will be a long while until the game is released.

That was a fantastic and satisfying 3 minutes of Star Wars porn. But it's obviously not in-game gameplay, and probably doesn't represent the MMO experience.

In the MMO, every single combatant would have identical equipment and skills, because they all converged on the current maxed out template.

The accurate part is that only two significant combatants are non-Jedi. SW Galaxies, set after the Jedi purge, had to keep bending to let nearly everyone be Jedi. At least in this time period it makes sense.

However, I'd be hugely impressed if the game somehow enabled tactics like crashing a shuttle into a building to land an attack party. Galaxies inadvertently enabled this with a 7-seat speeder that looked from outside like just one character approaching.
