Frozen and remote, Hoth seems an unlikely location as a political hotspot. But it's precisely these factors that make this ice-covered planet a point of contention between the Republic and the Empire. Its remoteness makes it an ideal staging point from which to launch surprise attacks, and its harsh climate makes it more difficult for the enemy to interfere with carefully-laid plans. It's also a prime spot for pirates to hide out, using the wreckage of crashed capital ships as bases of operation and "borrowing" resources from both the Empire and the Republic.
During E3 we had the opportunity to snag (legally of course) an advanced asset pack for a update coming to SWTOR this summer! In the pack is info on an all new event for Bounty Hunters and a story mission for all that will have you waist deep in underworld politics and corporate deception.

If you are one of these people and are considering a transfer. Check out the FAQ below for all you need to know about Paid Character Transfers.
