Is Fallen Empire Good for Alts?

No... and yes.  Obviously, eight class stories is as good as you can get for alts.  I would love to have had that again, but it's just not going to happen.  So we need to put that behind us and move on with our lives.  So without that, or even factional stories, how can the expansion be good for alts?

You would be surprised how many people play Mass Effect and Dragon Age over and over again.  They do different classes and different choices each time.  I don't have hard numbers, but just going from what I see and read, it's more than I thought.  I never replayed Mass Effect, so that kind of replayability isn't my thing.  But it certainly is for a number of people.

I don't see myself alting too much with the Fallen Empire content.  I'll likely have 6 60's and 2 characters in the expansion.  Maybe the choices we make will be important enough to make me want to do more, we'll have to see.  I'm not counting on it.  There is only so much branching they can reasonably do, and it'll all have to come back to the same general ending.
