Because this is not an MMO. It is a single player game that has a few elements of the MMORPG genera.
All the things that most MMO people want are just not here.
So tell us, what do "most people" want in an MMO? Sittable chairs? Sure, but hardly necessary. Chat bubbles? No thanks. Housing? Waste of dev resources for the "gaming value" received." Mini-games like pazaak and sabbac? Couldn't care less. Swoop/pod racing? Again, waste of time IMO. Sandbox? If I wanted sandbox, I'd play sandbox.
