This one goes out to all of the people complaining about how many jedi will be seen in this game:
has it ever occured to you that, timeline notwithstanding, players will see a disproportionately large number of ALL classes compared to what is "realistic" for the timeline?
Now, obviously jedi were more rare than what SWG depicts for its timeline, I would never dispute that...but I would also venture to say that smugglers, bounty hunters, teras kasi masters, and any number of other professions in the game were numerically misrepresented as well. To say nothing of the complete retardation that exists in SWG's itemization (one in 10 bounty hunters has full mandalorian) I don't think it's at all realistic to have as many bioengineers, doctors, combat medics, and POLEARM MASTERS as SWG has or had, whether you're talking about Pre-CU or NGE.
Am I complaining about this overrepresentation? NO!! Why not? Well, because being a moisture farmer and never leaving Tattooine in the entire span of your character's life simply isn't fun! I'm not saying that developers should just do whatever the hell they want with the canon and timeline as long as it's fun; I'm saying that sometimes you have to suspend what is realistic (in the context of Star Wars, or whatever franchise it is) and go with what is fun for the players.
Of course, I'm not basing my opinions solely on what has been done in SWG, that would be a foolish thing to do...so let's examine how things would play out in SW:TOR
You make your first character, a droid Bounty Hunter named HK-48...awesome! You look around, surely with billions of inhabitants you will seldom run across characters that fulfill the exact same role as you do...but then five minutes later you run into a group of five players, two of which are droid bounty hunters...and worse, they have all the same gear and stats that you do! You move on though, thinking that perhaps it was just a fluke...that in a galaxy with billions, if not trillions of inhabitants, that such a coincidence will never happen again...you cringe when you realize that this will be a daily occurance...that you are not in the actual star wars universe, that you are playing a GAME where people don't want to be mundane, they want to be awesome...they want to be Jedi.
From a timeline and lore standpoint the jedi will be overrepresented, this is an unavoidable truth about any star wars game...but guess what, jedi are a focal point of star wars...they are overrepresented in your precious original trillogy, as well as the prequels, as well as nearly all of the expanded universe...and do you know why? Because they're interesting! People want to take part in that.
And when you really stop to think about it...in the context of Star Wars there are millions of systems with billions of planets...so uhh...how overrepresented are jedi really? Maybe a couple thousand on a given server out of an assumed trillion or so inhabitants in the actual galaxy? Of course that trillion is mostly comprised of NPC's and imagined/assumed inhabitants of planets that aren't even in the game so that kinda takes the fun out of it...but then again, why would you be adventuring with them if they are random people from random and obscure planets? You're going to be spending your time with the important people - that is: Other players! Other players are...say it with me now "interested in playing classes like jedi and bounty hunter. All of which will be overrepresented in the context of the small number of inhabitants that the player sees, but likely underrepresented in the context of a real, actual galaxy full of inhabitants."
Now stop crying...we all know that you'll play the game whether it's a sandbox or a theme park or a damn merry go round grind fest with lightsabers attached to gophers calling themselves skippy.
Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.
