It seemed fitting then, that if I was to put time into an MMO for the first proper time, I would invest it in one they had lovingly created. The key for me was, as they promised, to bring their knack for digital storytelling into the genre. They were also creating the game in the Star Wars universe, meaning that if I ended up hating the gameplay I could at least find some entertainment in enjoying familiar locales and environments. So, I bit the bullet and bought Star Wars: The Old Repbulic and I haven’t regretted it for a minute. "
