Just to rub it in. BioWare giveth and BioWare taketh away.
Reminds me of a show called Let's Make A Deal. You would win a pig or goat and then they would show you the car you could have won.

In a word: Yes.

As others have said, they removed a lot of options and choices from beta in just about every aspect of the game.

I will say, though, that I don't personally recall any non-light social gear.
I'm not a hater, I'm a disillusioned and disappointed fan.

Yup in beta there was light side and dark side armor sets for classes as well and they looked dam awesome.
You have seen it, you have felt it within you as you have traveled with me. The growing anger, the rage, and the power it brings. Yet the power does not build without struggle. Through small cruelties greater ones are born. Kriea/Darth Traya

I've been in a few beta tests where they added things over time but this is the first time i've seen things taken away at such a rapid pace.

I remember the most common question in beta before new patches/builds was "What'd they remove this time?".

EAware hyped this game as being all about "choice", and then systematically removed anything and everything they could to limit that "choice".

I bet they were testing features that they are going to introduce in the future.
A force of one, yes, the solo player!

I'm still betting on the inevitable cash shop.

I guarantee you every single thing they removed will be included in some kind of content patch.

Of course. Only it won't be called a "patch", it'll be called an "expansion". And there'll be a fee attached.

They also removed almost all of the low lvl pvp gear.. There used to be a lot of gear that you could get from doing warzones at lover lvls starting at like lvl 13 and with new pieces every lvl or so all the way to 50. Now we're stuck with a set at 20 and one at 40..

This really sucks because I planned on leveling some alts only doing the class quests and warzones.

They also removed content as well. Ravaged reconstruction and the quest area for it on Taris as been removed and blocked off, only the cloner droid remains outside where it was.
