i would think in a galactic society it wouldnt matter much.

because each planet would be different. different day lengths etc. if a particular planet doesnt wobble as earth does then it would be a constant season and months wouldn't mean much

I would assume each planet has it's own way of tracking time due to varying lengths of day and planetary orbits around their suns.

And then I would assume there's some kind of unified dating system. (Example Star Date: etc etc.)

I notice on the timeline in the holonet the entries are BTC and ATC. (Before/After The Treaty of Couruscant.) So we have evidence of some kind of yearly system, but no idea about how long this is relative to a year in RL.

I guess all we can say with certainty at this point is there is 456 months per year in SWTOR.

Since we can travel at light speed it also makes it more possible to have a universal date

the Galactic Standard Calendar was the standard measurement of time in the galaxy. It centered around the Coruscant Solar cycle, which was 368 days long (one day consisting of 24 standard hours).[1] Numerous epochs were used to determine calendar eras. The most recent of these calendar eras used the Battle of Yavin as its epoch, or "year zero". BBY stands for Before the Battle of Yavin, and ABY stands for After the Battle of Yavin.

pretty easy to find...
