The first limitation-restriction that needs to go is the 'flat world' system. I want to see a game with a truly globular world. Everything after that is gravy.

@ the SWToR comment (although I think I made my own asserstion already there)

"What exactly would you suggest instead? A million unique storylines, one for each of us who ever plays the game? Maybe a random quest story generator... "

I *get* that it takes work to make more story paths, however, they are already using the same "sets" for good/evil path choices, or so is my common-sense way of thinking, which may be wrong.

I suggested to just insert either one new dialogue or scene for certain races that explain why such a race is there. Take the slavery angle and why certain races, for SW-lore's sake, can't be slaves. Well, just drop an extra sentence or paragraph that covers the situation and be done with it. Like maybe that particular player made a ruling official angry and was locked/up and sent away as a slave?

Just have some intro and lite-dialogue explaining their particular situation before/during the average scene we will be seeing. It's only a shmidgen of more work.

Kasapina said "You can't force that many players to leave what they are doing to come within earshot of each other, and you can't exactly group with them either. Thus, at the very least, voice chat in a game needs to both be popularized by the developers and be independent of player location, group, guild, and faction to be viable."

Me and my friends open a group chat, which is just a chat opened with multiple people on your friends lists at the same time. Then voice is actived and the chat continues to work despite location of the avatars and where they may travel to and from.
