    Wasted on a shitty trilogy sadly. Probably should have been the main character instead of Miss Daisy "I cannot keep my mouth closed" Ridley. Her only good role for her career:

    Because Disney is progressive that they gave us the typical white Prince-Princess romance. No tolerance for Finn-Rey. Worse, no tolerance for Finn-Poe.

    They should've had Isaacs play one of the main mains so that there'd be more than one acting talent in front.

    Isaac and Boyega were both better than Ridley though that is not a high bar to clear since she cannot act her way out of a wet paper bag. I guess Admiral Gender Studies might be a match for her.

    Been getting back into this for the first time in... 10 years I think? I played at launch and finished the Trooper and Sith Warrior storylines before dropping off entirely. Want to up and finish the rest of the class storylines so I can finally stop feeling the urge to come back to this thing. Everything I've read about the updates and expansions makes it seem like they've been doing almost everything they can do make it into a largely single-player experience. Do all of the expansions have some single-player story component or just the Fallen Empire stuff?

    The explosion of experience you get from regular play is amazing to me, I remember it being so much slower in the early days. Heroics and Flashpoints are wholly do-able with only you and a companion, and it all feels so much easier as a result. I do hear that changes later on though.

    Nevertheless the fact this thing is still alive and churning enough profit with supposedly worthwhile content and writing to sustain itself after all these years is amazing to me. I'm excited to see what all the hell has been put into this thing.

    Everything is able to soloed now, except Operations. You can do all the Flashpoints and most, if not all, the Heroics by yourself these days. The Eternal Throne is similar to Dragon Age: Inquisition but about 100x times better. Still not anything super noteworthy per se, but it was fun enough to go through both of those xpacs. The December update will allow you to have much more freedom in combat. Before the only class that could use a Blaster Rifle was Imperial Agent. Now any tech class could use a Blaster Rifle. You can be a Sith Juggernaut as an Inquisitor, and all that.

    Can't you already use whatever armor you want with the outfit designer? So you'd have one outfit with mando armor, one with the powertech... At least I do that on my characters

    Actually chest was from some swimsuit set, first i tried to use it to make an outfit that would have that bronze age Tales of the Jedi feel but i ditched it later after some dye problems, i still used half of it cause why the hell not? There is nothin wrong with some nice thighs in the background.
    And this swimwear has also male version with visible chest, there are dancer outfits that look like slave Leia (though those are only for ladies), there was also slave set though probably it was removed or renamed after Disney went apeshit with word "slave" and started to remove it from everything.

    Too lazy to write anything right now BUT I think these sources will help "guide" the solo path.

    Click for full screen.

    Or prose version: https://swtorista.com/articles/swtor-solo-story-path/

    What's interesting now is that there are two possible storylines, and each of the two have a variation. You can either join a faction (Republic or Empire) for reals, or you can do it as a "saboteur." The game doesn't offer the choice of openly joining an opposite faction but I'm pretty sure that's a shitload of work. So instead you get alternate bonus quests for sabotage and you can even sabotage certain story events.

    So far I've only been a Republic-turned-Empire saboteur, Commander Jorjelu Kes.

    Never did any of the Ops. The only people I played with online were my brothers, and most guilds at the time that I was playing required you to "prove" you were worth having by running your damage output through a scoring system. I can kinda understand why they wanted to do that, but I was never invested enough in the game to "prove" myself. Do people still run Ops these days?

    I think the slave girl outfit is still in game, it's supposed to be sold on Nar Shadda.

    They're on the Security Key Vendors. On the fleet and on certain planets.

    nowhere near as much as it has made
    good part of the reason anthem was killed was because they kept siphoning swtor devs to try to fix it and swtor development basically stopped

    Yeah.

    They had to cut out a lot of stuff or rearrange it. IIRC KOTET/KOTFE interactions with "Valkorion" were originally meant to extend the class stories starting from Ziost on. So each class would be interacting with the Emperor but each class with their own storyline.

    But that idea/budget got cut so they pooled whatever they had developed into interacting with Valkorion in KOTET/KOTFE.

    I might be totally wrong, though. I can't even remember where I read it. Ironically I recently read that Vaylin was planned to be redeemable... but I don't remember where I read that and I didn't verify the statement. Though I think it makes sense.

    In any case it's like they had to end the more ambitious projects for *reasons* but they still needed to create something, so they had to pull bits from the original plans.

    unsurprisingly, EA was not happy that bioware was fucking with the only thing they had that was making money
    hooray for capitalism

    Tbh Valkorion is a lame reveal for the ULTIMATE SITH EMPRAH. KOTET/KOFTE was pretty alright on its own, but the connection to SWTOR was weak and fairly lame.
