The Star Wars films have always had a nasty habit of making you wait years between sequels. What’s up with that? Us though, we’re not like mean old George Lucas. Waiting’s not our style. Yesterday: part one. Today: part two.

BioWare has said that the single-player storyline in Star Wars: The Old Republic is going to be massive.
Just how massive? How does “far, far, far bigger” than any game it’s ever made grab you?

If you’ve ever played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2, you know that their endings were a bit… inconclusive. Well, if you could even go so far as to call that Q&A session before KOTOR 2′s credits rolled an ending at all.
So, what happened to player characters Revan and The Exile? Did they smash all the Sith lords? Or did they go on psychotic Force-fueled rampages after you stopped playing the little angel on their shoulder? No one knows. But in Star Wars: The Old Republic, we’ll definitely find out.

BioWare’s Daniel Erickson has said that the team behind Star Wars; the Old Republic doesn’t think about the game MMO becoming a World of Warcraft killer.
On the contrary, he thinks that thought process is a bit counterproductive.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is perhaps one of the most massive videogame projects ever undertaken. When BioWare said the MMO set an even longer time ago in a galaxy far away was KOTORs 3-8, it wasn’t kidding. Every character class skywalks its own completely unique path through the game – each with a narrative arc larger than that of any single game BioWare’s ever created. Yeah. It’s absolutely mind-boggling.
So it’s only fitting that our chat with writing director Daniel Erickson quickly morphed from a tiny R2 unit into a Rancor-sized behemoth of a conversation. Check out part one for Erickson’s thoughts on beating World of Warcraft, why this year’s CG trailer was a better choice than demonstrating gameplay, how BioWare’s managed to fit story’s square peg into an MMO’s circular hole, unfinished storylines from KOTOR 1 and 2, and tons more.
