I have had something much worse. After about five min in from creating a character, computer black screens/hard crashes and have to restart. Was on the swtor.com forums for about an hour, there are threads over 100 pages long of people having their systems hard crash like me. Apparently it's been going on for about a week, I just got the game today but haven't been able to play at all. It sucks. Anyone have any ideas? I think it is a problem on BW's side.
