Waiting for: Star Wars - The Old Republic

  Despite the constant stream of disappointments I've gotten over the last few years in terms of mmo games, sometimes I still find myself looking up for games like this, as they say, you can't lose faith hm? Anyhow, a resume on the scrapes of info we've gotten so far...

Factions/classes
  It's been confirmed to be consisted of two sides, the Republic and the Sith Empire. Each side will have unique classes, available only to that faction, with 4 to a side. Each of these classes will also feature a branching path along their progression, allowing characters to change the fundamental way a class operates. 

 Republic 
Trooper (Spec: Vanguard, Commando)
Smuggler (Spec: Gunslinger, Scoundrel)
Jedi Knight (Spec: Guardian, Sentinel)
Jedi Consular (Spec: Sage, Shadow)  

Sith Empire 
Bounty Hunter (Spec: Powertech, Mercenary)
Sith Warrior(Spec: Juggernaut, Marauder)
Imperial Agent(Spec: Operative, Sniper)
Sith Inquisitor(Spec: Sorcerer, Assassin)

Races
  The players may choose 8(i've read it was 9 though i never saw info on the 9th) races, from what was announced this include the well-known Humans and Twileks, as well as Zabraks and Trandoshans. What effect a given race has on the character as a whole is so far unknown, whether it will be purely cosmetic or not. It's also not clear whether there will be faction restriction to races, although some races, such as the Sith Pureblood, give the impression that they will be...


Planets
  There will be about 17 explorable planets from the trademarked Tatooine to the unknown Tython, each supposed to have large playable areas which should be great for both the lone explorers as well as the large pvp guilds.


Space simulation
Contrary to SW:Galaxies this part of the game seems to be very limited, with only a few ships to choose from and with little to no free roaming this appears to be just a glorified way of transportation then an actual feature.

I would imagine that the Star Wars fans should be excited for a new game from this well known franchise as do i, however SW:TOR doesn't seem to be adding lot of improvements to the mmo genre and with big IPs going to be launched in the coming months, one might might start wondering if this game will have what it takes to be a success.
