What once started as just as a novel in 1976 quickly rose to fame and became a staple of the entertainment industry. That novel was Star Wars. After George Lucas filmed the first trilogy of films, Star Wars grew to become a pop culture phenomenon, spawning more books, comics, toys, and even its very own convention. The world of video games was also no stranger to Star Wars, as many titles were released from the Atari 2600 to this very day. At E3 this year, Star Wars: The Old Republic looks to be the next game to be a part of this legendary franchise. In this exclusive video interview, Lead Writer Daniel Erickson talks about the story and how massive of a game it is.
