Eq2 or you can wait for Wildstar.

Rifts crafting is garbage. The "housing" is ok, but its more build your own house instead of furnish your own house like Galaxies.
I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.
To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.
Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!
If you are looking for BOTH crafting and housing, I would say Vanguard.
Both EQ2 and Rift have amazing housing systems, but their crafting is a side bar to adventuring. Vanguard's crafting is very fun, challenging, and it actually takes awhile (almost as long to reach crafting max level as it takes to reach adventuring max level) so it's not viewed as something tacked on.
If you happen to like incredibly shallow crafting where crafting is just a money sink, EQ2's and Rifts housing customization is awesome (Rift I feel 1 upped the housing aspect in terms of creativity, watch some videos if you are interested) But if crafting is just as important or more important and you want to feel like you are doing something that not every other moron can do, I would suggest trying out Vanguard.
Both Vanguard and EQ2 are Free to play. Rift is going F2P in June.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:
A. Proven right (if something bad happens)
B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)
Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!
Dragon's Prophet is the closest I have seen to SWGs housing.
I miss SWG housing too.

Hard to find both on equal levels in one MMO. Aion and Rift both have good housing but lack in crafting. Same for EQ2 but as far as options goes it is better than Aion and Rift. I find LOTRO housing and crafting both below average in comparison.
Vanguard has best crafting out of all three but lacks in housing customization.

"Online gamers are the most ludicrously entitled beings since Caligula made his horse a senator, and at least the horse never said anything stupid."-Luke McKinney
The best housing at this point is quite easily EQ2, its only drawback is that its instanced but it allows for creativity probably even beyond SWG.
Im not the biggest fan of its crafting as it can get tedious. You do have to pay attention and react, but its not difficult. Vanguard has a more thoughtful process, however there is a much greater element of luck in VGs crafting and if you get a run of bad complications there is absolutely nothing you can do about it and it gets *very* frustrating.
The thing that sets EQ2s crafting apart from every other game in the market is that no game gives its crafters as much to do. You have epic crafting quests. Tradeskill apprentices to learn new recipes with. Mount quests for crafters (the mounts are only slightly different than what adventurers get, but still cool to have. VG has its 'sphere' system, but crafting is *far* more well rounded as a seperate progression path in EQ2 (it has separate levels from adventuring)
VG you actually build your house with crafting, EQ2 has a carpenter class to build its furniture.
So really, compare and contrast VG and EQ2 because they both offer different things. Rift is a distance third because it has housing that was heavily based off of EQ2s and actually has a more user friendly layout tool and is overall quite good, but its crafting is uninspired garbage, a near direct carbon copy of WoW.
EQ2 for Housing
Vanguard for crafting
If it's not broken, you are not innovating.
daoc for housing (since swg is shut)
eve for crafting
Xsyon. Housing and crafting are fun and well implemented.
most comprehensive housing in any mmo ive played
If someone is talking in general chat in a language you dont understand, chances are they're not talking to you. So chill out and stop bitching about it!

Thank you for all your responses.
But .... If you have to pick the ultimate one MMO?? with the housing and crafting in the balance.... which one will you choose?
I don't want to spend the wrong time into the wrong MMO.

EQ2 ,great housing with lot of customization and a parallel system of leveling for crafters too,unlike other games it is not just press a button and wait for the item to be over.

If you dont care about PvP its EQ2

For the combination of housing and crafting i would have to agree - Vanguard, hands down.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre
