They could pretty easily figure out a way to bridge the storyline gap if they wanted... I mean it's all styling anyway, all of the same "tech" is available. A storyline could even be presented such that the tech far-exceeded the abilities of what you see in the movies. In fact, that's sort of what I tell myself to justify how 3000 years later you see basically no advancement in the technology.
1. That's not how the Rakata work.

2. Tech in Star Wars has plateaued, that's why there are no major improvements. Vader's armor is just a life support system with a particular style. That style is unique to Vader and should not be handed out to players. Plenty of armor in the game looks very much like a suit of armor/life support system as it is.

Vader's armor is NOT Mandalorian. Boba/Jango Fett wore Mandalorian armor, but Vader's suit is definitely a Sith design. It's a combination life support system and armor designed and created through Sith Alchemy

And your point is...?

This particular work of fiction has many fans who don't want to see a bunch of players running around with Vader's mask. It is iconic and important to many of the fans and players of this game.

...the comment was aimed at your points 1 & 2 my point being; how the Rakata work and whether or not technology has plateaued are merely your own extrapolations of fiction, as if mine are any more or less far-fetched.

I do however accept the argument that the style of vader is/was unique and should not be duplicated exactly. Some sort of shiney black helmet might be nice though...

Unfortunately, considering what they've done with saber colors, there don't seem to be too many icons in this game that are above reproach.

actualy im pretty sure ther is a similar armor and helmet in game i seen some people using it.
Its not like Darth vader, but it is very similar.
also if you go to ziost and go to the bridge you will see an NPC with that armor, talking with some bounty hunters cleary an easter egg from the empire strikes back when vader talks to the bouty hunters like fett in the bridge of his destroyer.
But more importantly the npc armor, i seen ppl using it. dont know where to get it, but i think its trough questing, in some of the higher lvl planets. Maybe corelia.
