I just got the game and it's great. There is one thing though...was anyone else under the impression that you could pick the race of your character at the start of the game?

Nope, the very first news on the official site [february 2002] said that you can only be human :)

Welcome to our boards though :)

If you were just a fanatic about the game for a year before it comes out you would have looked at enought previews to know that you can only be a human.

You might be thinking of Galaxies which you can choose your race, and is probably a really great game. :D (I wanna try it)

Galaxies is OK for some audiences, particularly ones who can afford $15 a month via credit card...if not for said payment, I would likely be playing it...but there were some serious issues with atring up and bugs, etc.

I was in the Galaxies beta, alont with Leemu, and we both really enjoyed it :)

Also, Jedi Academy will allow you to be of one of several species :)

I knew the reason you'd only be human was for plot reasons. I was more than correct.

The plot reason I knew about was the fact that if there are romances, you'd have to be the same species as them to romance them. This ain't Star Trek ;)

I am anti-SWG, until I play it that is. I'd like it then, but in the meantime, it sucks! :mad: :p

well, I just don't have the time to make use of the 15 dollar fee......paying 15 bucks to play for like 3 hours is just not cool...same reason I won't be playing planetside.....
