I recently did a 14 day trial (before it ends) and I can say that it's a nice game, kinda funny, but not "Star Warsy" enough to me.
There's no cohesiveness. I couldn't figure out if huge battles erupted (I mean, the galaxies amidst a civil war. Battles and the "front" should be available to at least go to).
I fund that finding buildings and stuff was a pain. I ran around Mos Eisly and not once did I see the Cantina.
Getting near "known" characters was a pain, like Jabba... Traveling between towns was a pain.
I just wasn't "wow'd" by it. It seems like an immersive thing, but I guess I just need a story. A point and plot. If battles would've been viewable... Like say the Empire's seiging a planet, and there's just war taking place there. That I'd have liked going to see (at your own risk, like). Oh well.
