Star Wars The Old Republic: To Play or Not To Play?

I was one of the first to play Star Wars The Old Republic when it launched back in Dec 2011. I had a good time with the game, but ended up leaving before it went Free-to-Play. For a little while now I have really been thinking about subbing and playing SWTOR again. I played for free back in January of this year and enjoyed the time I spent, but the free-to-play model wasn't for me. For the last 6 months I have been back and forth on whether I want to subscribe to the game again.

The reason I am on the fence is because SWTOR plays like WoW but with a Star Wars theme. The main draw for me was the voice acted story, but the MMO part never really sucked me in. But now that a new expansion focusing mostly on story is coming out in October 2015, I am really thinking about playing again.

To play or not to play? I can't decide....With the gaming drought of the summer, it might be a welcomed distraction. Though once Fall hits, to many good games are coming out that will make it hard to justify that $15 a month. Still on the fence about it....
