Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith or PR Shill?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

When a lame television show is trying to sign on local affiliates, they often send a celebrity in to meet with the local network honchos. Often the starpower of a face-to-face with a celeb is enough to make people overlook actual content.

In completely unrelated news, SOE recently sent Darth Vader in to meet with a group of Empire players in Star Wars Galaxies. You can get a nice summary
here or check out the full thread here (via Joystiq).

Now, don't get me wrong, this is a really cool idea. Live events and personal touches will and should be a part of the evolving MMORPG game scene.

But, unfortunately, despite promise, SWG is not a good game. Some people resort to what some would call
griefing (and others, including the CSR, would call funny) to have a good time.

Methinks Lord Vader would approve.
