I agree alts are great to have, but its not a good sign you only make alts because there isn't any more content to run, I think content should always be there and making alts optional not a requirement like it is in LOTRO.Again, for you. I spent 5 entire years leveling alts. I don't like raiding, and while PvP can be fun... the "jerk factor" has always driven me off, sooner or later.
I stayed in SWG since the begining to the very end. The things I enjoyed the best is that I could try all classes in 1 character no need to make other really.No thanks. One of the very best things for me in an MMO is learning to play various classes. This was the single biggest reason I stopped playing SWG just 5 months after it shipped. I finished advancing my first character, and they didn't allow me to create a 2nd. I played for about 2 weeks after that, then left for good.
