You playing Empire?
If this game was free I'd drop out of school and become the obese neckbeard that I have violently repressed. I'm a level 23 mercenary bounty hunter (meaning I get two pistols instead of pussy shit tech defenses), been having a fun go at it with one of my buddies (who's probably a level 30 Sith Juggernaut by now). It's nice playing an MMO with full voice acting, but because it's BioWare they have the same small group of voice actors from Mass Effect and Dragon Age and the dialogue options are like ME, so it's either be a White Knight, be neutral, or be the biggest douchebag this side of Mos Eisley.
Edit: Encountered some serious role players for the first time tonight. They were in the cantina being all "The Sith are evil!" and "The Republic is weak!" and so on. Then some guild showed up and were all "We're looking for the Sith, 'cause we're all professional and stuff!" So I did the only thing I knew how: I boogied down and brought the Funk.
