From what I have seen of the Old Republic, it brings much of the adversarial splendor that I had experienced in my previous life into focus. The conflicts, the chance to play as a variety of characters and the many different enemies, all combine to make a most interesting existence to apply one's more base impulses.
The dark side story is the best feature. It allows the players to truly know what it means to thrive. This particular game I haven't seen, but it plays well and one day I look forward to getting involved.
I fought on the battlefield. I retired to embrace a life of discovery and profit. I carve my own path in life and am better for it.
