Pickup Groups in SW:TOR?

After seeing more of the game-play footage, I’m wondering if there will be pickup groups in TOR.  Assuming that you can find players at the same point in a story quest, is it really a good idea to group with strangers knowing that they are going to be making from of the dialogue choices?  This seems like a new way to grief people.  You group up with a light-side Jedi and try to steer all of the conversations toward the dark-side end of the scale.

    Ideally, you do not play SW:TOR but sit back. Otherwise you might interrupt the awesome voiceacting and storyline.
    So I guess you are right, don’t group with anyone else but your virtual best NPC buddy. You will foster a personal relationship with him because he/she is fully voiced!

    I do get a lot of single player game vibe from the videos I’ve seen so far. Maybe calling it an massively online cooperative role-playing game would be more accurate than massively multiplayer.
