Not getting a Taris vibe from what was shown at all. I haven't played it yet of course so my opinion means jack... but it just doesn't feel like Taris post apocalypse or not.

Whether it completely captures the Taris feel or not, you can't deny that it looks incredible.

Cities destroyed
Population wiped
Platforms ruined
Planet abandonated
300 year ago

How the "vibe" could be the same?

Anyone else feel like they're adding a 'post-apoc' planet because of the recent surge in popularity of the PA genre? It seems like - and I think it's unfortunate - that they're trying to jump on the bandwagon here. I mean, they do say the initial plan was to make it a swamp...now all of a sudden PA is surging and "hey, lets turn it into a ruined city".

Hmm..that was rather condescending of me. Hope it isn't taken too negatigvely - I am just unsure whether I'll play SWTOR yet. I hope Taris does end up looking good, either way, but when I think of Star Wars I don't think of Fallout 3.

All the concepts and storyline for the world I imagine were created a couple years back, so I doubt any recent success of this style of world would have been a factor in their decision to recreated Taris in such a manner.

I think this is really cool to see what they dream up in creating a mega city 300 years after it was destroyed, the early concept screens they gave us were brilliant in my opinion, I bet they are having a lot of fun creating Taris.

So, outside of a reason to include it in this game, what took the republic so long to start rebuilding Taris? Looks awesome.

Probably the Republic's continuous state of near-collapse.

A city-wide planet? Or a planet-wide city?

Neither anymore. Now it's just a whole lot of ruins.
