I am not surprised by this- and not because of the whole TOR is "not doing well" idea. I've seen other games go with this hybrid model and actually not only do better financially, but be able to do more about improving the game.
My only concern is really is when are you guys going to add in same-gender romance options. That is a big reason for why I've played the game. I really don't care for the new companion as the HK's were never my favorites in KOTOR.
I'm with you...I wish they would tell us when they plan on putting Same gender relationship options into the game. I've been wanting to have my female Sith Warrior romance her female companions.
