Link is broken?

It's an interesting tie-in. Not all that innovative (like many MMOs have done this) but interesting, none the less.

Personally, as an avid Star Wars and KOTOR I & II fan, I find myself less and less excited about the game.

The focus on story leaves me wondering why not just make a RPG, considering the mechanics of today's standard MMOs, it just doesn't seem all that engaging apart from single player.

Now, I'm certainly not writing it off, but so far, all we've heard about is story, story, story (which Bioware is great at), but that alone does not motivate me to log in to a massive multiplayer world.

I play online to interact, and with such focus on individual story... what's the point?

Again, they could easily change my mind, but right now, the announced features of STO are pulling me (and my family) towards that game at release.

Agreed with above that "story,story,story" is starting to make me think it should just be an rpg...... and in all honesty the whole lets make a comic book and reveal important lore thatway has never struck me as a good idea....

I am into this. I think its a good idea in consideration of Lore in a MMORPG. Which is something SWG tried with their book but never really progressed at all past that point.

I am still interested in game mechanics on a massive multiplayer level. Will we have space, player apartments, guild halls, etc?

Ever think that Bioware MIGHT have realized that people who play an MMO don't want a solo RPG? They aren't idiots. Of course they'll keep the important elements of an MMO, but they will also attempt to seamlessly add your personal story into the mix. As well as adding the "revolutionary gameplay features" that all developers boast about. Bioware is awesome. They'll either do it, or come extremely close.
