Every time I listen to the BioWare developers talk about Star Wars: The Old Republic, I am impressed with how passionate they are about the game.

It's probably a bit predictable that this Holocron File would be about the Cathar. But I'm not above being predictable when it's important or timely.

The community of Star Wars: The Old Republic did not quite make the Twitter and Facebook goals, so the developers decided to punish us by announcing another species that we will not be able to play.
