BW is quoted in PC Games as saying they are going with what they have done in other games.
Sadly for the mmo fans this is the single player games that they have produced in the past.

BW cant seem to shake the single player mmo, and with this single player aspect along with the single player class story, cant or wont try to brake free from there roots.

Let them now bring in a trash crafting system and life will be oh so peachy. :'(

Suzina is right, Kalvod is wrong. The two Fatal Alliance characters you were referring to are indeed Kiffar.

Good catch, I'm not above being infallible :) I think i was then specifically thinking of luminaya from tbe cline wars, I think her padawan Bariss Ophie is also one.

Re: James Ohlen, I also think they were some sort of miscommunication/misquote. I'm leaning towards the theory that Ohlen meant to say that we may see a Miraluka on the Empire side (meaning an NPC).
I don't think you'll be able to unlock races, to me that doesn't make sense for an MMO, where the time investment in creating and leveling a character is significant, and you should be able to get immediately into the fantasy that you like. Unlocking races is a no-no to me.
Also, in the case of the Miraluka specifically, it doesn't make sense that there's a notable amount of dark side/Sith Miralukas, as they are a thoughtful, deliberate, not generally emotionally guided race. I know there's precedent for Sith Miralukas, but I feel they should remain the exception.

I'm fairly certain the Miralukan quote is a misquote/miscommunication as well, as it just doesn't make sense.

However, I wouldn't be surprised some day to find out they are considering selling certain race/class combos as microtransactions. Like in Star Trek Online, it costs cash to have a Klingon serve on your bridge.
