TOR now localized in Shyriiwook

Great news for those wookiees among us. Or those who, like me, have had to take a job on Kashyyyk(hey in this economy you go where the job takes you) and now all the people you know speak shyriiwook. No longer do you have to tell your wookiee friends that they should learn basic so they can play TOR.

I see no harm in BioWare actually doing this. I mean, with Guild Wars you can set the Language to whatever the Swedish Chef speaks, so why shouldn't TOR have this feature?

Because then BioWare would spend a couple years recording the voices, because you absolutely cannot have a BioWare game that isn't fully-voiced anymore.

Or, do what Star Wars games always do with Wookiees, and reuse the stock wookiee sounds from the movies. Noone would really care.

You underestimate the power of the wookiee demographic in video game sales.
