They rushed out pushing their new "big enhancement", the result is a broken, unfinished game that's still in beta stage.

So I rated them rather well : 7 and 10 respectively, but for the rest of the game is now crap. What made SWG a good game or at least one different than the others was the non combat professions : entertainers, crafters, etc... Now even those are crappy or useless.
The combat system is now a strange bastard son of a dumbed down RPG and 10 years old FPS topped with lots of flashy effects and clunky movements that makes the whole very sore to the eyes (I got a headache after 2 days of playing the new version).
FYI, I started playing in SWG on September 2003. Cancelled one month after CU, retried for the NGE and canceled again.
