I think it also helps that the Star Wars franchise as a whole has taken a far more open stance on this in the years since SWTOR was first released. There is a lesbian Imperial officer in one of the canon books, and several people affiliated with the newest films have said there will be LGBTQ relationships and (major) characters there.
