Then again, we do know better. Even though the footage you'll see is incredibly smooth (especially the combat) don't be fooled. BioWare has every intention of doing their normal thing, which means the game is done when it's done and with an MMO that can be a very lengthy amount of time. So much time that we highly doubt Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out anytime before 2011.
No need to lament, because at you can check out the video below the break and let the awesome production values wash over you like a wave of editing, game developing and voice acting nirvana.
