I'm cautiously pessimistic about this game.

The main character looks like a partial gender-bend of Han Solo, and the story trailer had pretty terrible animations together with uninteresting characters all around.

And that's all before taking into account Ubisoft's tiered content deployment where we need to pay like $120 for the ultra deluxe version that has the actual full game.

There's the Massive Entertainment that made The Division and then there's the Massive Entertainment that made Avatar, which was a standard Far Cry clone, complete with typical Ubisoft open world content padding like copy/paste bases to conquer, endless collectibles, and a half-baked crafting and loot system.

It remains to be seen which version of Massive Entertainment is behind this game.
I hope it's more like The Division, but I'm afraid it will end up being more like Avatar.

Lol, guess Galaxies doesn't exist then. Also, over/under on number of planets in this "open Star Wars world". I say 7 but am debating whether to take the under.

Edit: Just to be clear, I do want this game to be good. I have hope for it to at least be good.
