Hopefully they will live up to their promise of this, as bad pathfinding can ruin a fight or sometimes even an entire bossfight/instance.
Yeah I thought I saw that on their site some time ago when I heard that Bioware was using the Hero engine for their MMO(when it wasn't announced to be SWTOR). So long as the baddie doesn't sit there walking into a wall, or doesn't get stuck someplace where I can't shoot him, but he can shoot me, or falls through the terrain when I have a quest to kill him, I'll be happy.
