E3: Star Wars: The Old Republic Opening Cinematic

An even longer time ago, in a galaxy that was every bit as far away...

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

Yeah, yeah, I know — the game itself looks and plays almost nothing like this stunning intro video. But that didn’t stop me from enjoying the heck out of it. In just six minutes and twenty-two seconds, BioWare was able to deliver a video far more fulfilling than the entirety of everything ol’ Georgie-boy has done with his creation post-1983. I don’t even play MMOs, but my love of Star Wars, KOTOR and BioWare has this game near the top of my most wanted games. If nothing else, it looks poised to provide something that will satisfy the classic Star Wars fan inside me.
