Well, if its about the old republic, it is on topic. re: lula's post and same sex marriage, etc, I really don't know why this is even a desired game feature. As it stands, there is no marriage, etc, in the game that I'm aware of. Is this something that they have in WoW or something (eg marriages)? Personally, I think the idea of having the option to marry someone in game silly... and would likely lead to some creepy things (some 45 year old gamer marrying at 12 year old and what have you). And that's just talking about marriage in general. Just seems like an idiotic thing to lobby to have.
re: the free weekend - yeah, I was glad to see that they were opening things up a bit to get in more folks. Looking forward to when they change things up so that you can play up until X level without buying the game. That said, my accounts staying canceled until they get more development done with useful features or have an expansion or w/e. MMO's are something I just can't see myself playing for long durations of time... think I lasted like 2-3 months tops and then dropped my sub because I became bored with it.
