This once was a great game. That is until the dark side brought on the NGE. Then the game went downhill very quickly. To this day, I still miss what this game was. SWG will forever have a place in my heart. I loved the unique crafting system and being able to decorate a house or help decorate my guild's guild hall. Maybe hard to believe, but between my husband and I, we had 8 SWG accounts lol. That is how much we loved this game. My elder Jedi was named Xevv Shi'Ang. A good friend of mine called me The Xevv. That is where my name on this site came from. I play SWTOR now, but not no where near as much and I only have 1 account. My husband isn't a fan on SWTOR, but he did play for a little while when he got bored with FFXI.
