That said, my main intent in this post is to offer a shallow justification for a slide show. When it comes to breathtaking sights and making your character look like a badass through found gear, in my personal opinion SWTOR trumps most MMOs on the market. In no particular order, these are the sorts of things you should expect to see while playing it:
Space combat. It's on rails like Starfox but still fun, and quite pretty.
My Bounty Hunter and a companion talking to a random quest giver.
This is a character I started on a new server, to hang out with a guildie from LoTRO, at around level 4.
This is what she looks like now at level 26.
SWTOR is a very pretty game if you can run it at a decent frame rate. Say what you will of whether it's innovative or not, there is no denying that it provides some gorgeous virtual spaces to explore.
