Featuring an all new design of the first 30 levels of the game, the Star Wars Galaxies Starter Kit will let players of all levels fly into action immediately.

Visit the familiar Mos Eisley Cantina.

Encounter the familiar bad guys.

Help Han fend off Jabba.
Whether you want to enter the excitement of Jabba's Palace or the dangers of the infamous Mos Eisley Cantina, the galaxy is yours for the asking. Begin your adventure aboard the Millennium Falcon helping Han Solo and Chewbacca fend off the notorious Jabba the Hutt. Along the way you will choose your path as a Rebel fighting the Galactic Empire, or even join forces with the Dark Side! Heroic adventurers can seek their fortune in space or on the ground as a Bounty Hunter, Smuggler, Jedi or a host of other unique Star Wars professions. Getting started is easy -- the Star Wars Galaxies Starter Pack is all you need!

Included with the Starter Kit is the complete content from the multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, as well as Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed. You can immerse yourself with content inspired by the classic trilogy, the prequel movies including Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, and the hundreds of comics and books that have been inspired by the George Lucas films. You can explore 10 fully realized Star Wars worlds, such as Tatooine, Naboo, and Endor, and decide whether you want to work for, or against, the likes of Darth Vader, Jabba the Hutt, Han Solo and Princess Leia.

Along the way, there will be no rest for the weary as you adventure through 11 space sectors filled with asteroid belts, dangerous nebula, enemy fighters and opportunistic pirates. With access to a full range of powers and controls, you'll be able to command dozens of different starships, like the X-wing, TIE fighter and even the Firespray -- Boba Fett's starship. You can even pilot multi-passenger ships such as the YT-1300, the same ship as Han Solo's famed "Millennium Falcon," through Death Star debris and enemy encounters with your friends as your gunners. And if that's not enough, you can also choose to race speeder bikes, swoop bikes and landspeeders, or mount creatures like banthas and dewbacks.

With the Starter Kit, you can also customize every detail of your character's appearance, from 10 playable species (human, Wookiee, Bothan, Twi'lek and others), by selecting from various body types, facial features, tattoos and more. And you can take on one of over nine iconic professions, including Bounty Hunter, Smuggler, Commando, or -- the ultimate -- a Jedi! And best of all, you can remain live online in the Star Wars universe with your friends, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while you explore the distant galaxies.

One thing you should know: the Star Wars Starter Kit is a powerful MMORPG, loaded with the latest special effects and exceptional light displays. So if you have had photo-sensitive seizures that may have been induces by flashing lights or patterns, you will want to talk to your doctor before diving into this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Customer Service November 23, 2005
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Sony Online Entertainment makes great games when they are original, such as Everquest, and even Everquest 2. But every intellectual property they aquire, from The Matrix to Star Wars - they kill it.

Honestly how can you ruin a game based on something as immensely popular as Star Wars? Especially so soon in the afterglow of the Episode III DVD release?

SOE shows you how - through doing the exact opposite of what you are taught in every Customer Service class you will ever attend.

1.) Lie to the customers

SOE has lied, constantly, as it relates to changes being made. A recent lie was advertisements for the latest expansion to Star Wars Galaxies - and promises of new items, etc. for certain professions. 1 Day after charging customers who pre-ordered the expansion - charges fresh on the credit card bills - SOE announced changes to the game which ELIMINATED 21 professions and forced you into one of 9 professions which were broken horribly.

This was actionable enough for a lawsuit that they were forced to give a refund to customers - but of course that took 2 - 7 weeks to process.

2. Don't listen to the customer.

Customer asks for a bug fix? Offer him an expansion for the modest sum of $30. Want the bug fix bad enough? Fork over the $30 or we won't make it. Character bugged? Spent 3 years building him up to the level he's at? Delete him - we can't be bothered to fix him.

3. Call every nerf, everything that changes in the game, etc. to make it more "Star Warsy".

"Star Warsy" is a madeup term crafted in the SOE spin department.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Blunder of a Home Run Movie License, Ever November 23, 2005
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The "Starter Kit" from Sony Online Entertainment and Lucas Arts is capable enough getting you started in the online world of Star Wars Galaxies.

The problem is once you get into that world you aren't left with any compelling reasons to stay.

A brief history: Star Wars Galaxies has been out for more than two years. In that time the developers have fumbled around with unwanted game changes that have positively alienated their player base and fostered an amazing amount of ill will. Truly the players that continue to stick with this smoking dung heap have more creativity and love for the cannon than all of the developers put together. I have been with the game from beta through November 15th. It is an absolutely accurate statement to say this game has been in beta from 2003 and continues to be in beta. The game has gone through so many massive revisions and changes that what once was, has no bearing on what actually is.

On to the NGE (Starter Kit) itself. The "Starter Kit" a tool Sony and Lucas are using to lure new players in to a complete change in game play. The NGE (New Game Enhancements) has removed most of the depth of play. Most professions have been completely removed (from 32 to 9). If you were a player that perused one of the 23 now obsolete professions you were forced to "respec" into one of the nine "iconic" professions. Further, the remaining nine professions have zero individuality, with the exceptions of "Trader" (a crafting profession) and "Jedi". The Jedi profession is self-explanatory. The crafting professions have been reduced to producing items that players don't want, nor need. This, of course, begs the question "Why bother?" Most crafters are still trying that one out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boycott Sony Online Entertainment and Lucas Arts. November 22, 2005
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played Star Wars: Galaxies for 782 days according to the /getvet command. I have purchased all of the expansions out to date. I was considering creating a second account. As of 11-17-05 my account is cancelled. The New Game, also known as the Starter Kit, is the third version of SWG and it is riddled with bugs and incomplete. It is a far inferior product to its previous versions as well. The NG was released after being kept secret for an unknown period of time and allowing players only a two week notice of it being published. Even less time was devoted to it being tested by sources outside of SOE. Trials of Obi Wan and the NG were released in such a manner as to call into question SOE's and LA's ethics. As represented by the employees who post to the forums SOE and LA are uncarring, glib, and/or vastly out of touch with the player community.

Most of these are not new complaints. However, with the release of the NG these problems have escalted to such a degree that the game is no longer playable. While some are content to merely switch games I am not. Simply changing the direction of the flow of money to SOE and LA will not get their attention. I am boycotting all products created by Sony Online Entertainment and Lucas Arts. I encourage others to do the same.

I do not think my actions alone with effect SOE or LA one iota. In fact, I doubt anything will change their policies. The fan base for Star Wars and other properties is sufficiently numerous to mitigate any discontent portion. While some have predicted that the NG will cause the collapse of SWG I believe otherwise. It will lose many current players but those will be replaced by SOE's and LA's new target market.
