BioWare discussing free-to-play Star Wars: The Old Republic

Speaking with GamesTM (via Kotaku), The Old Republic’s lead designer Emmanuel Lusinchi said that he and the rest of the team are discussing going full free-to-play. “The MMO market is very dynamic and we need to be dynamic as well. Unless people are happy with what they have, they are constantly demanding updates, new modes, and situations,” said Lusinchi, “So we are looking at free-to-play but I can’t tell you in much detail. We have to be felxible and adapt to what it going on.”
You can play the first 15 levels for free right now.  Give it a try.  I liked it and may try a smuggler next.  (I always go for a Jedi.)
