Hundreds of voice actors? This'll be good.

This does make me curious about how they'll refer to player characters. Being an MMO, our character names will vary wildly. Will they play the pronoun game, or maybe just refer to us by our class name? "Master Jedi", "Trooper", etc?

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.
