Not sure if you read the review or just the quote but in part 11 he states that his friend can't run it on his computer because of the engine but he played Skyrim just fine.
"I was originally not going to bitch about this as I can run The Old Republic with no issues (performance issues that is); then I got my friends to play and one of them has a computer that can’t run SWTOR to save its life. This initially confused me because he can play something like Skyrim (clearly the more graphically intense game) with absolutely no problem."
I don't think he really had a problem with making a lower performance game, but I can't be positive on that.

Basically KotoR > the trilogy
Yeah this aspect also is what originally got me into considering playing ToR.
