SWTOR: WoW with Lightsabers?

So new info about the upcoming Bioware MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic has surfaced from E3.

Based on this interview with Rich Vogel and this preview from Massively, let's see what sort of info they're giving us...

  • Player ships that don't actually fly anywhere. Instead they are glorified apartments and transportation hubs (kind of like a personal flight master)

  • War Zones = Battlegrounds

  • Crafting will be similar to WoW

  • There will be Raids

  • There will be Gear Progression

Unfortunately, it seems to me that they're heading in a direction that will make this game World of Warcraft with Lightsabers, which I find very disappointing.
