Yeah there's that, plus there's also this quote from Smedley -

"There's a quote about the original design of Galaxies that says it was too much like living the life of Uncle Owen and not enough like the life of Luke or Han Solo. We want to deliver more of the heroic Star Wars experience."

I never understood that. If everyone is "heroic" then nobody is. A community full of super heroes just doesn't work - somebody needs to do the more mundane things (as opposed to just running around "heroically" killing stuff). And, as SWG showed, there are a surprising amount of people that enjoy such roles.
