You can do a ton of stuff. Play completely alone as if it's your own personal story. Play with people in group missions where there's usually 2 damagers, a healer, and one guy to take the damage in a dungeon where you fight bosses (these missions also have pretty good story), or you can do 8 vs 8 objective based matches. The options here are pretty diverse and entertaining.

The best part to me about the game though is definitely the class diversity. You can play as so many different characters (evil Sith Warrior, Sith Assassin, Bounty Hunter, Smuggler (they try to go for Han Solo type), an Imperial Agent (best story out of the classes), or your usual Jedi lightsaber master or force master. Within each class, you have 3 routes to go (and you can change these from time to time). A couple of classes have all 3 routes are different types of doing damage, while the others have 1 out of the 3 trees being a non damaging role (either healing or tanking). It's a very deep game with a TON to do. You can always start playing for free. There's not too many hindrances till lvl 50 where you can't get level up anymore to the normal cap (55) or participate in operations (huge group missions with 8 or 16 people).
