It seemed at least from looking, that both healers and tanks are even.

But tbh, I can't see how people would rather stand back and heal instead of shoot force lightning/throw boulders at people and jump in crushing people as jedi/sith.

Hopefully things will even out though, will see.
You're counting specs, and not actual numbers of players in each role. As Blizzard keeps discovering, even if you offer players the choice to go for a less-played role within their class, you can't force them to choose it. Someone who is an avid DPSer will only DPS, even if they could theoretically respec into tanking/healing.
