I think the land seems small. I thought Pandora was quite small, and from what I read SWGE isn't a whole lot bigger.
I agree with you on Pandora, but not that it is physically small, but really there is so little to actually do. All the paths wind around but lead to the same two places. SWGE has so much more to see and explore, even if it is relatively the same physical size. All those shops, alleys, stores, displays, side streets, will really heighten the experience. (I’m not knocking Pandora BTW... I love it.)
