Free to play doesn't turn games into successes. Companies turn to this option when the game fails at being a decent mmo and have problems retaining subs. Companies slim down, lay people off, reduce updates, and add in cash shops to bring in revenue. You people need to stop kidding yourselves. Lotro, EQ2 changed to this option because the games where sinking.

Swtor has failed at being a mainstream mmo and this is the result. The game will continue to survive yes but it wont turn out to be the game that everyone hoped it would be from the start.
