The lights are on
According to Guinness, Star Wars: The Old Republic has more voice over work than any other project ever.
The game has over 200,000 lines of recorded dialogue according to Guinness, easily beating out any feature film or other video game.
I'm curious what exactly defines "a project," though. Could The Simpsons be considered a project? That might have more voice work associated with it, if you take the entire series as a whole.

Man, Bioware should be proud of the work they did with that game.
I love this game. :) I also love the story and I think the ones that I have played (not finished) are fantastic as in the bounty hunter and Jedi consular.
I really want this. A lot.
Over 200,000 lines? Wow, that's pretty amazing.
Well we sure as hell know it's not Zelda..hehe, anyways that's cool they put that much dialogue into a MMO. I'm glad to see less dialogue and hear more voices.
Wow, that's alot of dialogue.
Wow, that's impressive! Wish I could play this game. Still waiting on a Mac release.
Man, Kyle... You're just trashing everything tonight. I decided to look it up.
495 Simpsons episodes, would need about 400 lines of dialogue in order to reach 200,000. Turns out, that's roughly what a half hour show has. So I suppose, they're about equal. Still, The Simpsons has been running for 22 straight years, across multiple seasons. I highly doubt that's considered a single project. Even if it is, Old Republic did that in a quarter of the time. It's impressive, not matter how you look at it.
