The Old Republic had a rich single player experience, but it felt incomplete as an MMO. At the same time, I don't get into the group oriented end-game raiding that dominates the genre either. Level scaling was a major draw. Every other MMORPG has created this left behind feeling unless I dedicate a large chunk of playtime each week, racing to the level cap, and staying current with the content.
