I was in the weekend stress test beta for Star Wars: The Old Republic two weekends ago and will be back in the test this weekend. So far, it is very very fun. Any questions? Leave them in the comments!

How soloable is it?

Incredibly. There are some group style missions, but they are few and far between and very rarely in the middle of where you actually need to be. You can even solo some of them with the help of your Companion character once you get one (you get a total of five, any one of which can be with you at a time). And there's the usual "dungeons" (called Flashpoints) designed for a party. But the first of those are balanced for two players plus their companions (maximum standard party size is 4).

Much (perhaps all) of the main storyline is solo focused.

I soloed every character I made through the first 10 levels with some occaisional grouping to take care of the Heroic missions (group quests).

They did apparently re-tune mobs, so I'm not sure how well using a companion to help you solo the Heroics will work now, but we'll see this weekend.
