How did Rakata die off?

Rakata are gross, with their creepy eyes on the sides, anyway. Not to mention arrogant. Glad they're gone.

After generations of galactic supremacy, the Infinite Empire began to fracture and by circa 25,200 BBY the Rakatan empire imploded. Constant tensions between internal factions suddenly erupted into a devastating civil war caused by the Star Forge's corrupting influence. Already weakened by warfare, the Builders were suddenly struck by a deadly plague that spread rapidly through their ranks and decimated the species.

The virulent plague nearly exterminated the Rakata and brought the Infinite Empire to its knees, yet the worst was yet to come. The Rakata suddenly and inexplicably began to lose their connection to the Force.

After that the enslaved species took notice of the force absence and rebelled.

Yea, Infinite Empire collapsed, because Rakata lost their ability to use the force and most of their technology was built around using the force.

Though they should not be completely extinct.

In the first KOTOR game in the end you go to this ancient Rakata homeworld and there are living Rakata there divided to 2 tribes. One is technologically primitive tribe that is just begining to show signs of getting their force sensitivity back. The other tribe has more advanced technology (though none of their original force technology) but does not show any sign of force sensitivity.

I don't think they were even all killed in the canonical ending of Kotor, so there should still be living Rakata at the time of TOR.

Since they lost their Force sensitivity, of which almost every aspect of the IE relied on, along with civil war and such.

A combination of a disease that took away their ability to use the force which in turn made them unable to use their force-based technology, and a galaxy wide revolt by their slaves.
