The Old Republic Sith Divide Explained

Today's been a good day, I know, but it doesn't mean you haven't had that nagging question in your head. Like the small stone in the bottom of your shoe, it's been frustrating you throughout.

Dave Tosser says: I've never properly understood why BioWare are persisting with this era of the Star Wars universe. George Lucas carefully crafted an elaborate back-story to the classic films with his recent trilogy, rich with ideas and worlds in which an MMO could be set. Also, I'm concerned this game isn't nearly enough like World of Warcraft.
