Since I have been playing this for about 24 hours straight, I though i'd take a break and write up some thoughts.
1) This a not a world of warcraft killer, nor does it even pretend to be, which is a good thing. There are many elements that are similar to WoW such as character leveling, ability training and talent specs but all set in a Star Wars environment.
2) Questing is engaging, with a TON of voice acting. It really made the usual kill this, or gather that type quests much more enjoyable. There were plenty of cut scenes and the interactive dialogue was reminiscent of Mass Effect. Each choice you make has an effect on your dark side or light side meter and how people will interact with you later.
3) I have only played the Sith side so far but have tried both a Sith Warrior and a Bounty Hunter which encompasses both starting zones. Each one had amazing quests and story lines that really throw you right into the story. The only thing I didn't like with the bounty hunter story is that it made it seem like you were the be all, end all of bounty hunter at level 1 and the whole world should just kiss your ass. Not really believable at your first level considering the Sith Warrior story line was all about how big a piece of crap you are and you need to prove yourself.
4) It's a beta, so I expected a lot of issues, but to my surprise there really hasn't been any. I have yet to be dumped, locked up, or glitched out of the game. Bioware has really put together a solid, star wars themed experience worthy of any fans playing time.
I have one more day before this round of testing closes and they are patching the game right now, but I can only hope it gets better!
