Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic
Getting your ship is huge. You can go anywhere you want after that, even if it's a planet that's too high for you. I did this in the beta, because the spaceports and starting towns are safe.
Bioware has resolved the housing issue with ships also. A lot of gamers want housing and the ship provides a way for you to get around on your own, fight in space missions and have your own storage (cargo) and craft droid right there. Well done.
