Having everything VO'd in a dynamic game such as an MMO kinda makes me nervous...

Agreed - we didn't learn anything new from this - but I still appreciate the insight given by BioWare.

Followed with: "I don't like your girlfriend!" Right?

Honestly, unless the compression is stellar, won't a bazillion VO's either be innumerable repeated lines or "ZOMG WTF SO MUCH DATAZ!!"?

It'll be a very big game. EQ2(another voiced MMO) is 10gb I hear, just for the base game. I expect TOR to be even bigger. Better start saving up your harddrive space.
