Don't get me wrong, I am loving SWTOR, and im not a Lore junkie that can tell you the
history of Murlocks from WoW.
But to my understanding Star Wars the Old Republic is set in a time some 2000 years before Anakin Skywalker was born.
I roll a Sith inquisitor, and the entire story talks about the Empire all the NPC's talk about the Empire.
But there is one problem with this lore wise.
The Empire was not founded untill Palpatine made his speech in "Revenge of the Sith"
"The Republic will be reorganized into the FIRST galactic Empire !"
So just saying, the whole Empire thing does not fit some 2000 years before the movie timeline.
And your telling me Lightsabers and spaceships had no advances in 2000 years?
I would think 2000 years before Anakin, Sith and Jedi would be using the force
to throw sticks and stones at each other ! LOL
