SWOTR, no go....

Over the weekend I decided to download and try out Star Wars: The Old Republic, a free to play MMORPG.  I am not a huge Star Wars fan, I neither love it, nor I hate it. I just like it.  So, with Star Trek Online being a little flaky this weekend I decided to download SWOTR and try it out. I was looking forward to it, but I didn't get very far with it. As a matter of fact I didn't even get to character creation! ;-)

The first major issue was the massiveness of the download.  Like Star Trek Online the main installer is pretty small, and then it connects to a patch server to download the real thing.  Well, the real thing for SWOTR was over 10GB! I have 20GB free on my Samsung slate, so I thought it would be OK, so I started downloading.  The download took forever, so I decided to let it do its thing over night and it would be ready for the morning.  Nope! It seems like I ran out of space on my hard drive and the install never completed.  For now, SWOTR is a back-burner project :) If anyone is currently a player leave a comment. I would be interested in your opinions.
