So the UI was never fixed from closed-Beta it sounds like. That's disappointing.
I didn't think the graphics looked crap though, far better than WoW, but fairly par for the course otherwise. The basic systems for combat were ok and they did a decent job with the storyline and feeling part of the war worked pretty well. Mainly appreciated the sci-fi theme mixed with their version of the Force.
The main problem I had with it when testing is the world was too closed. Crafting sucked, no vehicles, no personal space (yeah I know you are a soldier so you live in a barracks but whatever). The zones are big compared to a lot of games but felt like a shoebox compared the venerable and destroyed SWG.
