Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
If you are not already familiar with the Star Wars universe this may actually be a great place to start. BioWare has some of the most talented game artists working today. There is so much content to enjoy, that no matter what you like best about MMO's you will find plenty of it here. If you are a fan of the property, the game writers have created wonderful original stories. The developers continue to add new challenges and opportunities for groups to work together, giving guilds a reason to get together regularly. I recommend downloading the game client and trying the free to play option, there is enough content to give you time to find a guild that fits. Do not be surprised if you find yourself wanting to sub fairly quickly.
