I'm a bit dubious about SW:TOR as well. While the original single-player game was good for its time and Mass Effect etc. were solid games, I haven't seen anything to convince me that Bioware really knows what it's doing with an MMO. What they've been writing about while they've been developing kind of worries me - it seem a bit like they're trying to turn an MMO into something they're more comfortable dealing with (i.e. one of their single player games). I think there's quite a good chance that they're going to end up with something which misses out on a lot of the fun "MMO" aspects of an MMORPG while at the same time being less satisfying than a single player RPG. Maybe I'm wrong, but it just seems like they're running away from the format a littlle too much, but not enough to make it interesting. Also, there's no way it can possibly live up to the level of hype a lot of people are placing on it. Which can't be good.The one I'm personally looking forward to is Guild Wars 2. The developers for that one seem really to be trying new stuff and their enthusiasm for what they're doing reminds me a bit of Blizzard before it got massive.
