Just discovered this blog today.  I only read the article I'm linking to below which I found a great read, but looks like he has tons of posts involving the design and problems of SWG's launch.

If you are/were at all a fan of SWG, this is worth a look.  This article in particular is also relevant to a lot of our discussions on other MMOs and TV shows, movies.  How do you balance out one uber powered person/class (e.g. Jedi) with all the "regular" folk?  Kind of like Thor in Avengers or the powered folk in SHIELD.  It definitely becomes a delicate balancing act, which only gets amplified in a MMORPG, and I can see SWG's Jedi being one of the most problematic design problems in MMORPG history.
