They should just leave things from the KOTOR alone (Revan, Lehon). They will just ruin it. Well they already did ruin Revan...

This is just a theory. IMO, it would be the best way for him to go out.

Bioware will create and add as much lore as it wants. Deal with it.
Before KOTOR there was absolutely nothing about Revan, Taris, and little else of the Old Republic time period. Now it's all part of standard Star Wars lore.

What's wrong with adding Makeb? OP you want SW lore to remain stale?

Seriously, people don't get it that if a fictional universe doesn't get a constant stream of fresh ideas it dies off and becomes a dinosaur. Without all these authors and creative people contributing, the SW universe would just be a relic of the past who nobody remembers except old geezers.

Honestly, a writer can have more freedom when they create something. That's why Voss is interesting while Hoth feels perfunctory.

This. If I had to choose between BioWare only using existing SW lore or only using lore they created I would choose the latter every time.

Well that is a matter of an opinion.

Although I would agree about Hoth being unattractive but that is not because it was already established planet but because how BW made it. I just hate the whole surreal look and the quests on it. Another established planet that BW screwed up in SWTOR is Nar Shaddaa. The whole "Las Vegas of Star Wars" paradigm was made up by them and forced upon previously established Nar Shaddaa. That paradigm is just wrong, ie completely opposes previously established Nar Shaddaa. While Nar Shadda and Hoth being one my favourite planets in SW universe, I just hate them in SWTOR.

Now you might find Voss interesting. I on the other hand find it dull. They pretty much "copied" its look from SWG Corellia. As for Voss role in the storyline, they just can not convince me of any kind of real strategic importance of the planet. The whole "mystics thing" is just ridiculous and useless. They also didn't convince me of strategical importance of Hoth (which is not the fault of the planet being previously established but because of lame storyline in SWTOR).

As for new planets being better than already established, well I disagree with that completely. For me Tatooine, which is the oldest and most fundamental planet in SW universe, is easily the best made planet in SWTOR (visually and story-wise).

What they created in KOTOR was absolutely great, sadly they ruined quite a few things in SWTOR now. Revan being one of them...

So if think again I would prefer if they created all new planets, characters and things in SWTOR and not using anything previously established. That way they at least wouldn't ruin anything.

Without writers taking creative freedom, we wouldn't have Korriban. It was invented by the authors of Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the SIth in 1995-96. That comic book also introduced the Cathar and the series as a whole gave us Onderon, Dxun, Miraluka, Sith Purebloods, Ossus, re-introduced the Mandalorians (who hadn't been used since the 1980's) and gave us a first look into ancient Sith culture.

And without that comic book series, we wouldn't have this game. Bioware expanded on that series and gave us Taris, Manaan and Lehon. Now they have created Denova, Makeb, Quesh, Cademimu, Athiss and expanded upon the Voss, who previously were largely unknown. Dromund Kaas was created for the game Mysteries of the Sith.

I think it's more interesting to add new lore than simply rehashing everything all the time. Keeps things fresh.

After George Lucas dropped the ball with Hayden Christiansen he lost all right to monopolize Star Wars. Time for new blood.

Besides from what I see, Bioware made the Star wars franchise grow a set of *****! Before I wuld have always thought of Star Wars as young kiddie scifi and nowhere approaching the grit of such as warhammer 40K for example. This game doesn't quite go that far but it is on track.
