SWG was also supposed to cash in on the massive non-MMO playing SW fanbase and looked what happened to it. TOR won't convert any more non-MMO players than what SWG did. Most normal people don't have the time or inclination to devote to MMOs. It's a very specific market segment you have to cater to. It's why I can see TOR going the same way as SWG - try a SW flavour first to lure in non-MMO playing SW fans and then when that doesn't make the amount of cash LA wants change it into a WOW clone to go after the traditional MMO market. Of course signs point to it being a WOW clone straight off the bat, so maybe we're screwed either way.
