Just curious what everyone's thoughts are on taking a RPG and converting it into an MMO (ie KOTOR to SWTOR). I only bring this up because I have been engrossed with Dragon Age: Inquisition over the past month (I waited to buy it and am glad I did... I got all the DLC at once) and am getting the feeling that they are testing the waters with some very MMOesque features like multiplayer, mounts, crafting, gathering, more open world zones, dynamic player housing, a potentially open-ended "post game" (until they released that last DLC, Trespasser, of course), etc.
In one hand, they can thoroughly change the pace, feel, story, and timeline of a RPG title from release to release (as with Trespasser, they went ahead two years into the story) but with a MMO, they can progress the story slowly based on player input, events, etc and the world is much more dynamic. While it's more difficult to change the systems for crafting, combat, etc with a MMO, they can radically change the mechanics from release to release when dealing with a RPG title.
