I feel a great disturbance in the force

   So, SWG is finally kicking the bucket. I'm suprised, since last time I remember playing the game (a year or two ago) it was an utter ghost town, surprised it lasted so long. Kinda funny, back when they did the Matrix Online live, I asked them if they were gonna do an Endurance Run of SWG, they actually responded saying something to the point of "Yea, we'll do that when it gets shut down too".
   It's quite cathartic for me to be reading about the game shutting down after that and remembering all the good experiences I had in the game. It had a really awesome space combat component, one which I got really into, unfortunately it didn't have much depth at endgame, and I could seldom find someone to PVP with. I even came back to the game just to get the 8 player gunboats they released a couple years back, but there weren't nearly enough players left that were actually interested in the space component. Does anyone know if SWTOR will have a strong space component to it? That's the only thing that could possibly make me interested in that otherwise seemingly bland game.

Yeah man the Jump to lightspeed expansion was pretty amazing, space PVP was quite fun as well....was very bad it. A highlight for me was Roleplaying as Han Solo while in space :D.

Hah, personally my favorite part of space was bringing up people in a POB (I had a Nova Cruiser first then a YT-1300 I think) and grinding their space experience, I used to advertise in Mos Eisley to take people up and grind them, I met a few good friends doing that. Not to mention the time I looted the supposedly ridiculously rare (and ugly) Black Sun Helmet :D
