This game looks really cool to me, but I absolutely hate boring combat... it has to be interactive.
I could be wrong but I think it's a sort of interactive/turn-based hybrid. I wish there was a PC demo. I think the review over at IGN covers the gameplay pretty well if you want more details.

We've all been anxious to see the new interface and, though the one we saw today may still be tweaked here and there, it gives us a good indication of where the team is headed. The movement of your character is handled via the traditional WASD format while the mouse controls the camera and interacts with the environment. Simply bump the mouse against the edge of the screen (well, technically the mouse cursor, not your actual mouse) and the camera will rotate around. Hover over an item and a helpful context-sensitive icon will pop up, letting you know, for instance, that a door is a thing to be opened, not a thing to talk to. Tab switches from one character to another while the space bar pauses the game.

Just think of the game as Neverwinter Nights in the Starwars universe. It DOES use the same engine, after all (though I'm not sure if they were talking about graphic engine or just combat engine).

Point and click.

On my machine (see below) there are no slowdowns with maximum detail at 1600x1200x32 (no AA or AF). The detail is amazing. For example you can see individual bumps and welts on the rancor's skin. Lots of people walking around on the city levels (as well as flying ships). The best word to describe the game is "immersive". The more I play it the more I like it.

The combat is more pseudo turn-based. You can pause at any time you choose to issue commands.

Anyway, aside from the occasional interface bug (every once in a while I am unable to issue commands in battle, and sometimes I'm unable to loot certain objects...this has happened about three times in 25 or so hours of playing), it's a pretty bug-free game.

The experience/leveling system is very similar to Neverwinter Nights, which uses the AD&D 3rd edition rules (it should seem even more familiar to any that have played the pen and paper Star Wars RPG).

And how fun is it? Very.

It's got a decent storyline (well, a good one for a game, but it's still cheesy), is very engaging, and fighting with a lightsaber is just awesome. I'm playing through the game for the second time now. I'd better get back to it

But no multiplayer?

Hmmmm. I've already got one Star Wars RPG... but it's an MMO game. Could always use another
