First, how can SW:TOR be a WoW-killer when Cata already did the job? We should call it WoW-finisher instead, right? Sucks for Bioware that Blizzard beat them to the punch on that one.
Second, and far more important, it sucks that Skyrim already killed SW:TOR huh?
Full voice acting? Check.
Amazing solo adventure? Check.
Popular IP? Check.
Story over gameplay focus? Check.
Additional dev-provided content you pay for after the box? Check.
People expecting silly things like game balance, PvP, or social aspects? Check.
Problem is, if you have the correct version of Skyrim, you also get player-made content, graphic upgrades, UI changes, and bug fixes for free (mods). Not so much in SW:TOR. And unlike SW, I don’t have to disable general chat when I log in, while still having access to vent to chat with people I do want to share the experience with. I also don’t have to wait for mobs to respawn, or have someone skip a cutscene to get the loot NOW!, or stop the story to grind out XP in order to actually progress. Or just in general you get to stay away from SW fans, who make WoW players look like normal people.
But hey, lightsabers… that 5 hit rats. Yo.
