Sorry EAWare but a single planet is not considered an expansion for any mmo. $10 isn't a lot of money but it shouldn't cost anything to subscribers to be honest. You have made a killing with the f2p shop, it's not like you're not making money off this game already! Not to mention you can't even purchase it with CC coins, just seems to me like another nickel and dime grab from your loyal fans.

True, in most MMO's, an expansion covers at most an eighth of a planet.

Lotro did a one zone expansion with 5 level increase only and several other 1 zone expansions, swg did 2 one planet expansions, everquest have done several 1 zone expansions, age of conan has done a 1 zone expansion.

I'd imagine it's no larger than current planets such as Hoth or Tatooine.

It's not just a planet....

Both SWG xpacks was a single planet for 4x the cash... Not to mention the last xpac in SWG was a bait and switch that gave us the NGE

Don't tell me you expect to play on the whole planet ? Come on, don't be a fool.
Collector edition. Beta tester. P2P since Day One.
Cash Shop only Life Day event ? P2W ship items ? Makeb not free for P2P ?

Well stop imagining things to make a point and actually base your concerns on facts (which you don't have yet).
