101 things we want added to Star Wars: The Old Republic

34. Massive guild cruisers that act like guild housing.


36. Krayt Dragon world boss on Tatooine. Like, seriously, should we even need to ask for this?

Above: That's the current world boss for Tatooine, for some unknown reason

37. The option to toggle Companion headgear on/off. Kissing our companions with their headgear on just looked silly.

38. Story missions that we can take our entire team on, like the last mission in Mass Effect 2. There are a few in the game, but there should be many more.

39. Let us talk more with our companions after we max out their affection. After we hit cap, they just... stopped talking to us. Did we say something wrong?

40. More companion missions. Let’s hear their stories now that ours are done.

41. More missions involving lifting things with the force, because lifting things with the Force is awesome

42. More NPC cliff dives from Jedi Mind Tricks. That should be a potential outcome of every single mission.

43. Better UI customization. Better than that. No, better.

44. Racing with friends like in Knights of the Old Republic.

45. Changing lightsaber stances (Warrior/Guardian) should make the static standing animation different.

46. Playable, fully-animated Holochess.

Above: Pazaak was in Knights of the Old Republic, so it obviously exists in the world

47. Dejarik, Pazaak, and other silly Star Wars card games.

48. Oh, and Sabacc. We can't forget about Sabacc.

49. Gambling in the casinos. There’s a casino planet without a single form of gambling. OBJECTION.

50. When traveling to other planets, the phrase "punch it" should be said by a companion character just before activating the hyperdrive. Every single time.

51. The ability to learn secondary weapon proficiencies. Guardians and Warriors should be able to use double-bladed lightsabers, and Troopers and Agents should be able to use blaster pistols (at a cost)

52. Playable instruments. The Star Wars world is full of them, so why can’t we toot on a horn, too?

53. Lightsaber dismemberment. What? Oh, it’s not an M-rated game? Fine.

54. Lightsaber dismemberment for droids, then, Johnny Buzzkill.

55. Shared banks with the Legacy system to let us share between our characters.

56. Shared crafting on each server. If we don’t want to learn a new craft on an alt we should be able to just use our other character’s companions to craft with.

Above: We should be able to send Khem to whoever we want

57. Shareable companions with the Legacy system.

58. More lightsaber crystal types – unstable, swirly, rainbow, whatever. Maybe one that turns it into skittles.

59. Mail sent to friends should be displayed on the screen with the scrolling text from the beginning on Star Wars movies.

60. Something like Rifts’ rifts – maybe downed ships that we can activate a distress beacon on to spawn dynamic content.

61. More dynamic content in general.

61. Large, open events on the later planets, like Rift’s invasions.

63. Better protection in cities and at spawn points in cities from enemy faction attacks. Even on PvP servers, people need to be able to spawn.

64. We should be able to deactivate our ship robot.

Above: We want to deactivate the crap out of him

65. Cosmetic items that cover up armor, like robes or cloaks or cosmetic capes.

66. The ability to recolor or dye outfits and armor.

    Free to play would be awesome (and would certainly win me over, I loved the beta), but if they lowered the price and threw in the trophies (bounties, lightsabers, holotags for the trooper?) display on the ship, then that might just make me give in and buy it. Now though, 45 quid and another 18 every two months is just far too much for me.
  • OddWoN ER - February 6, 2012 10:21 p.m.

    how about a free to play version? i love star wars and liked SWG before the update, but i just cant afford to pay the dough to play year round. gimmme a low-cost version that doesnt force me to drop dough to have any fun with it... praying Battlefront 3 isn't dead...
  • Thundercleese - February 5, 2012 11:42 a.m.

    Can I get a Travis Touchdown skin for my jedi?
  • yonderTheGreat - February 5, 2012 3:58 a.m.

    You had me at "The ability to play Star Wars: Galaxies from our ship. The entire game. Please. Before the crappy update." I love you even more now. RIP pre-CU SWG. /cry
  • talleyXIV - February 4, 2012 12:26 p.m.

    Too much reading for me, especially a game I genuinely don't care about.
  • yonderTheGreat - February 5, 2012 3:59 a.m.

    You cared enough to click the link *AND* to post a comment.
  • talleyXIV - February 6, 2012 1:35 p.m.

    I would have read it if it wasn't three pages long. I genuinely don't care about the game but would have read a short article on it. What is up with the emphasizing of *AND* by the way?
  • Mcan50 - February 7, 2012 6:18 a.m.

    His emphasis of "AND" is because he is simply pointing out that for someone that does not care about this game, you took time out of your busy internetting schedule to actually: 1. Click on the link to read this story, about a game that you do not care about. AND... 2. Then took even more time to click on reply and type a message... twice no less.
  • Unoriginal - February 4, 2012 10:46 a.m.

    Mabey this is just a hunch but I get the feeling Cooper really likes Huttball. Don't quote me on that though.
  • PhantomDave - February 4, 2012 6:59 a.m.

    The lekku issue is one I made my brain hurt for a long time knowing they just ditched hoods all together rather than fix the bug from beta. And I have something to add to the list concerning lekku....remember the lekku language from Galaxies that only Twi'lek could understand? That was awesome...
  • Sjoeki - February 4, 2012 3:53 a.m.

    I'm affraid to keep reading as I'm fearing Jar Jar might pop up
  • GR HollanderCooper - February 4, 2012 12:23 a.m.

    103. Team Fortress hats.
  • 435 - February 8, 2012 1:39 a.m.

    This. Also the server transfer and all the cosmetic stuff ever.
  • oldschoolgamer - February 3, 2012 6:37 p.m.

    Reading this I'd almost laugh if it didnt want to make me cry. I just wonder how the two games people can't stop talking about.. tor, and skyrim are such kings. One is lacking just about everything SWG had, and the other a decent sandbox called skyrim, which when compaired to SWG's sandbox, it's like comparing an easy-bake oven to a profesional kitchen.. Yet noone played it, cause it got NGE'd, and noone ever gave it a second chance. Even then it was still one of the best MMO's ever made.
  • Shazamin - February 3, 2012 6:49 p.m.

    I'm guessing you just read IGN's "Seven ways to expand Skyrim" article they posted up a little bit ago. Honestly Skyrim is cool, if not a tad bit overrated (like alot of games are), and SW:TOR is nothing to write home about. Both games just came around in a time when people wanted new MMO's & RPG's to play, even though neither revolutionized anything in the gaming universe.
  • Soxknight1127 - February 3, 2012 6:30 p.m.

    i'd settle for not making the jedi guardian feel like a pansy.
  • BazyLastard - February 3, 2012 5:46 p.m.

    50 was my favorite. Great list though.
  • CameronPoe - February 3, 2012 4:27 p.m.

    I remember playing SWG during the CHANGE.. Never forget.
  • timothygridley - February 3, 2012 4:07 p.m.

    24. Non-mechanical mounts! We want to ride Star Wars’ wildlife. Mounting animals like dewbacks, tauntauns, and GUNGANS would be awesome. I know this whole list is mainly a flight of fancy as well as a wish list but the whole mounting gungans would just be plain awkward. Making one of JarJar's ancestors give me a piggyback ride would be amusing but probably not very fast. Not to mention just plain silly looking for either faction.
  • RedHarlow - February 3, 2012 2:43 p.m.

    So basically all the good features of Pre-NGE Star Wars Galaxies.
