The character creator was more expansive than I thought it would be. It gave the choice of multiple races, body types and various other features that I did not expect. Although it does not compete with the choices in a character creator like City of Heroes or Aion it still far exceeds most creators in other modern MMO's. I felt there were enough choices to create quite a lot of variation in the community and I am glad that it does not allow such ridiculous creations as Aion's character creator. For all classes I was able to customize a character that suited my tastes and this is a good thing. I was also surprised to see an option to create an overweight character. I can't really think of any other character creators that allow this choice and surprisingly I saw quite a lot of "Fat Jedi's" due to this, which was quite amusing.
In closing, I have strong hopes for this game but I am still unsure whether or not it will be a massive success. I think that will depend on PvP and endgame as well as performance on launch. I eagerly await the release and I am thankful for the opportunity to have seen what is to come in December. I will definitely be playing and hope that all other aspects of the game come out as nicely as what I experienced this weekend.
