FIX that worked for me:

Context for Bioware:
I had crashes to desktop in this game and also in TF2. Crashes were occurring in the same DLL. I realized that my TF2 crashes started right after I activated the "Multi-Core Rendering Optimization" option. So I disabled it and it stopped crashing to desktop. So I thought it my be the same for SWTOR and actually, it was the same problem. Since I haven't seen this option in the Video preferences menu, I forced a single core rendering for all my applications through my NVidia settings panel. Multi-core rendering on some machines tends to cause memory leaks or shared memory problems for some obscure reasons...

To de-activate "Multi-Core Rendering" with NVidia:
  1. Right-click on your desktop background
  2. Select "NVidia settings"
  3. Go in the "Manage 3D settings" option
  4. Under the "Global Settings" tab
  5. Find the "Threaded optimization" option and turn it "OFF" to force it off.
  6. Also make sure that all applications under the "Program Settings" tab uses the "Global Settings" for this option.
  7. Apply the modifications
  8. Enjoy

I hope this works for you!
