Apparently they have made a different hierarchy than most games, the core game resides on the small package, like network protocols, VGA and etc and the big one is textures and etc.

Also have two, but don't think thats a problem. It's running great and as long as only one use all your memory it's working as intended.

Unused memory is wasted memory. As long as they're not using 100% of your CPU and 100% of your memory, you shouldn't see too much of a system hit from it.

There are actually several games that I've played that have two executables. It could possibly be some sort of load-balancing feature or something. Try force closing either one of them. The entire client goes down. There is a purpose for them both.

Acording to a college which has been in Beta, the .exe with less memmory usage is handling communication and authentification (so basicly the netcode) while the other is running the game itself.

The advantage I see behind this is that the Netcode doesn't get throttled if the game is busy rendering Dancing Twi'lek.
Also they can use all 2GB of Ram (Win 32bit limit) for the game without having to consider the Netcode etc.
