The Old Republic Intro Cinematic Revealed

Bioware have released the six minute intro cinematic that'll be featured in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Critics (alright, me) are describing the video as "long", and "a bit like it was written using a flow chart of scenes from previous Star Wars cinematics".

Ah, look at me being negative in the face of lightsabers and smugglers and a pseudo-R2D2 in a budget Millenium Falcon piloted by a pretend Han Solo. But some of you lot have got to feel the same way, right? In giving gamers environments, characters and attiudes that we recognise, these games make the universe seem thinner and more boring than it really is.

Urgh, time for more tea. Don't get up, I'll make it. How do you take it?
