Sure, Star Wars: The Old Republic may have "officially" launched today, but let's not be too quick to forget what came before it. A few days ago, Sony Online Entertainment officially closed Star Wars Galaxies, and it appears many decided to come together for a final farewell. The Galaxies were lit up with fireworks, as members chatted in the game's closing moments.
A YouTube user managed to capture the last ten minutes, including the abrupt (and tear-jerking) "Disconnect" screen that ended the long-running MMO.
Video uploader Kuokka77 noted that "SWG was the first ever mmorpg for me. There can be only one first ever. Therefore i have some unique memories from this game that no other game can't possibly provide - ever. The first few weeks especially were something magical."
