Keyboard and mouse is standard for most MMOs, and TOR is no different. My advice would be to just get used to it.

If you can't use a keyboard then it will be nearly impossible to play MMOs properly.

I can't begin to imagine how this game would be played on a gamepad, but anyway I would never give up my mouse+keyboard.

The lack of mouse-keyboard support is why my PS3 is gathering dust. The only thing I played on it in the last six months are racing games, and even those weren't with a gamepad (used a steering wheel)

Yeah unfortunately it's way too much going on in an MMO to limit it to a controller, you'll figure it out after a bit of time.

Practice is your best friend when it comes to MMO controls. Strangely enough once you learn the ropes, you'll pick up a controller for a console and feel empty inside lol.

Remember, practice... by playing the game. What seems hard today will come naturally tomorrow--so on and so forth.

As being said above, practice using keyboard+mouse. Canīt really pvp without it. (But Im sure you can pve fine with any type of control though)

Use WASD for movement (and never the arrow keys).
If your mouse have a few additional buttons on the side, bind them to certain skills like the 1 & the 2 on the main skill bar.
Use the Q E C Z X (and so on...) keys close to your movement controls for skills you use often.
