Go to the folder where you have installed the game. There is an .exe (program) file called launcher. Right-click on it, select create shortcut. When that shortcut is created, right-click, cut, and then paste it onto the desktop.
Then you can rename it if you want.

That should work.

I have no idea why your shortcut would disappear, but here's how to get it back:

Go to the folder where you installed SWTOR - find the file called "launcher.exe" (The ".exe" part may be hidden)
Right-click on Launcher and select "Send To" and then "Desktop (Create Shortcut)"
A sieve may not hold water, but it will hold another sieve.
