Remember Star Wars Galaxies With This Poignant Memory Book

A week ago Star Wars Galaxies closed down for good. Today, the MMO published its official "memory book," a whale of a tome at more than 200 megabytes in PDF form, recalling all of the worlds, races and principal events of the MMO's eight-year run.

Remember the Sullustan, the Ithorian, the Wookiee, the Human and, yes, the Bothan ... and the worlds of Corellia, Dantooine, and Kashyyyk. Remember the Jedi, the the smugglers, the traders and the spies. Remember all the members of the eight Galactic Senates. Remember all those who fought in the great Galactic Civil War or lived in the time of its intrigue.

It's a memorial not so much to a game but to its community and if you were ever a part of it. Have one last long look through the pages of its history, with that soundtrack above as your final accompaniment.

The Force will be with you. Always.

I'm sad to see it finally go, but I always thought the original model of play was far better suited to the Star Trek universe than Star Wars. Perhaps then there wouldn't have been as much pressure on SOE to try and capture the more action-orientated WoW crowd when they messed it up with the NGE?

ST better invokes the living, crafting frontier-like set up that SWG began with.

However, I realise this isn't something they could have foreseen at the beginning as the MMO space was these kind of games before WoW changed the playing field.

It's a shame to see one of the great community-based MMOs finally go, but lets be honest that game died a long time ago.
