Gabe published this without having to get proofread by BioWare first. He played the beta and asked them if he could do it, they allowed him, and that was it. They were as surprised as us about what he actually said. I knew Gabe would be positive, but not for the reasons you said. I knew because he is a massive Star Wars nerd(check the PA comics, Gabe is often depicted reading SW novels like the "Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines" book in a comic last year). He did say he didn't like SWG though, so he's not just a "love every turd LucasArts has released" kind of guy (which I am). His impressions have nothing to do with any business his company has done for BioWare before, especially since the team working on TOR is not the main BioWare team who hired PA for work, but a spin-off called BioWare Austin that is mostly made up of talent from the Austin Texas area who've worked on past MMOs. The biggest name on TOR that has worked for the main BioWare Edmonton studio is Drew Karpyshyn, who wrote KotOR, Mass Effect, ME2, and the Jedi Knight storyline for TOR. BioWare Edmonton is doing TOR's space combat, but that's all, the rest is all BWA.
