Other Hero Engine games better than SWToR

Are there any out there? So far, the game does not perform very well and the graphics are kinda 2005 or so.

Enjoying the storyline, but coming to this after Mass Effect 3 is really rough. I also hate seeing other people run around and inviting me into groups. they spoil the story.

What does "Graphics are so 2005" even mean?

To be fair TOR used a prototype build of it that wasn't ready for a real game. With that said the engine was just made for cheap WoW clones making. The online over one I've heard of is the Elder Scrolls online and we know nothing about that yet

Elder Scrolls Online uses the Hero engine only as a "jump in and preview" WYSIWYG editor, which is a strength of the engine.
Dominus was coming out better than SWTOR for us who wanted PvP, but an engine update killed development and eventually forced development to shut down. It was basically an indie project anyway. Goddamn shame. A lot of work was made, worlds were made, an engine update came and suddenly the worlds were too large for the engine.

The Elder Scrolls Online did use Hero but not now; I think they took to heart the comments on how similar it looked to TOR.
