When playing the game I set a few goals of completing my class quest, Maxing out my Qyzen Fess affection and getting to level 5 in dark side. I hit two out of three, the dark side just didn't feel very compelling after completing the other two. I would have grabbed a title that I didn't care about, so what. I didn't have much cash so buying up my speeder skill and getting the Xenos didn't feel like a real goal. In a weird way the completion of Qyzen, Corellia and the Class quest worked too well.
In going back to my old favorite, D&D online, I really felt wow why would I go back to star wars. D&D online is sort of like listening to Dio, it's awesome and great and sort of comforting like home. I just had to do a few quests to get the feel of a night of SWTOR. It just felt rewarding and challenging. Not that I was even doing quests at my own level, i was getting favor for a few low level quests. But I had to do more than kill five of these guys and lot ten of an item. I had to click on things, I had to open a secret door or two. I had to click on an npc to follow me while I managed his health.
When I play Star Wars there was always some five minute quest I could run just around the corner. There was always something little I could do. I found myself up until 1.30 with all these little things all the time. With Dungeon and Dragons I can run a few big quests and feel like damn, I did something. Star War felt like Chinese food to me, you can always take a little bite but you are never really full. The class quest felt like they gave me the fortune cookie at the end so I knew I was done. DDo is a steak!
