"We live in a galaxy of mirror dualities. Light and Dark, Jedi and Sith, Republic and Empire.
Dromund Kaas is angular; Coruscant has sweeping curves. Korriban is dust and desert; Tython is lush greenery. The Imperial Fleet is gunmetal grey, the Republic Fleet is rusty brown.
Opposites, but reflections. It is our similarities that bring our differences into sharp contrast.
A member of the Dark Council sits at one table, a member of the Jedi Council at another. They drink the same drinks; they are surrounded by the same sort of scum and villany; they listen to the same ragtime tunes.
If there truly is balance in the Force, perhaps it may be found at a cantina.”
— Igniis Trajan, Letters to Constantius
"The Korriban Incursion demonstrated the utter impotence of the Sith traditionalists. Unable to defend the dusty tombs and temples that they cowered in, many were cut down, or worse, captured by the insufferable Jedi.
With the complete failure of the old guard to defend its home, and its retaking by upstart former slaves (such as this humble Rattataki philosopher), one thing has become clear to the entire Empire:
The myth of the superiority of pure Sith is dispelled, forevermore.”

A lot of what makes SWTOR “feel like Star Wars” is the music. I’m grateful to the composers and sound designers for doing such a fantastic job with such an essential part of the Galaxy Far Far Away.
You know it’s spring when, just after sunset, the refrigerator constellation rises in the western sky.
(But seriously, remember that our perspective on the stars is at the same time wonderfully unique but not at all special, and the stellar stories that we write are products not only of our imaginations, but also our brain’s relentless desire to recognize patterns in random assortments of far away dots)
