The game exposes you to planets and lore that are mere sketched outlines in the movies. They expanded lore detail for you and you complain about it.
Conclusion: you want to play an MMO in the movie timeline. That's fine, but you know... they did not hide the fact that the lore was in a different timeline. You purchased it knowing this.
I agree with this^ OP. This isn't Star Wars A New Hope. It wasn't meant to be. They chose KOTOR as the compelling element. And why not. KOTOR is widely acknowledged as one of the best RPGs of all time. It sold millions of copies. And what's more, the KOTOR universe gave BW the ability to create and explore new aspects of a Star Wars story without being bound by the convention of the New Hope timeline.
It works perfectly. Story is the strongest element of the game.
