I think the most interesting quote in this article was
“Don’t be scared about adding voice over and cool cinematic content,” he advised his audience, “but do be careful about adding lots of choice with consequence because that adds to QA cost and development cost and makes it hard to design everything.”
I feel this implies the storytelling in SW:TOR will move towards World of Warcraft’s style of sweeping your character along in larger plots (like the rise of the hutts) and away from character defining events like the end of the agent story’s choice (you know the one.) I am a little bit sad about this. Then again, most of the stories already dodged choices with consequences and railroaded you along as it is. (Think of that one sith warrior spoiler.) And there will always be headcanon.

They rebooted the PTS and I got all my cartel coins again, so here are some more screenshots.
Loungewear, now with hat.
Lhosan Mantra (black mount)
Ubbrikian Crimson Claw (red mount)
Cartel Collector Title
Out of about 12 cartel packs, I also got two BoE weapons (the lightsaber with swirls, twice) a relic, a pink-purple crystal, two imperial banners, /menace (twice again), doubles of the Longspur Elite and Rendil Nightshade mounts, three recon droids, another mountain bat, and a bunch of boosts including a Social Points boost (!!!) that is not for sale in the normal cartel market.
So basically, having a lot of people to trade cartel pack contents with will be a good idea, because it is goddamn random.
Also I included a screenshot of the interface, so you can see buying perks for individual characters vs all your legacy, and the gifting option.

Low Atmosphere Miniprobe
Ruddyscale Kowakian Monkey-Lizard
Female Lounge Armor Top and Legs
I also got some experience boost items, an imperial banner, a boe lightsaber, and a level 50 relic called ‘Revan’s Cowl’ with a cool on-equip.

Looks like I’m farming Battle for Ilum. Again.
I wish all chairs in cantinas and everywhere else were useable like on the bridges of the ships. It gets awkward not having a sitting emote that is actually relevant to the environment.
This, and hard. It’s really awkward to sprawl sideways on a barstool.
Don’t forget clipping into the couches, or even better: floating.

Goofing around in SM Denova. We killed Torn and Zoth in one shot. Stormcaller and Firebrand were glitchy and mean to us. What the hell is with these flowers.

Ridiculously close Novare Coast win.
This is what happens when half of the people in the warzone are high level healers.
