For anyone that has thought about returning to SWG I can tell you that it is a lot better than it was. It took me a bit to get used to the NGE again but since being so far removed I find that it is flowing for me really well.
There is now a lot of higher end content that is really fun. It is not a 1 man show anymore and the heroic instances are actually fun. Similar to the WoW model there are specific things that have to be done to defeat bosses. Gone are the days mostly of the simple slash until it is dead. So far, it is money well spent.
The collection system is interesting as well. There are a lot of really good items that are taking quite a bit of time to gather for. In some ways it is another version of a grind but the difference is that unlike WoW you can drop out and do you own thing and still get decent gear. The problem was that with the constant releases in WoW you are always behind then if you are casual you never get to the new content untess you commit hours of your life each day. I no longer feel the urge to HAVE to login in order to tank or heal or DPS or fear of getting kicked if im not pulling my weight. For casual players that want a free night , it is so much more relaxing.
I played SWG in beta, thru the holo grind, thru the village and into the NGE a bit. Now that I am back, i feel that with the crafing and playing it is more geared to my casual style. I can honestly say that the interface is more combersome at first compared to pre-nge but i just learn to hit ALT a lot to swtich from the "combat" to the "select" cursor type.
Anyways, if anyone is interested, hit up Starsider. The game is still challenging and they are still releasing content. The new Nightsister theme park is hard to the point where simple quests sometimes need full groups.
