Actually, it makes sense--the HK-51 dialogue and the Section X daily area conversations had been in the game's files for a large duration of beta. It wouldn't surprise me if they had prepared for Chapter 4 (or at least more story updates) before release.

Only devs could have offered some educated guess of an answer to your question OP. Then like half of them got fired.
5 Credits says Class stories will never be continued. We get some story advancements every now and then but it will always be shared content by all classes.

Just my guesses.

This.

Even though people don't want to hear it, they are not going to invest in this game anymore. Any revenue from F2P is funneled to other projects. They will keep it afloat with minimal costs.
Those that demand respect deserve only pity.

Dont think so. I remember looking through the HK-51 leaks. IIRC the original intention was that the HK-51 quest chain was located on Hoth. The quest chain got your items from tattooine, alderran and nar shadda,

Empire Side
1) Primary Sources
- Defeat Rogue Agents
- Return to Minder Eight
2) The Maker
- Talk to Tren Vaido
- Loot a Photoreceptor from Old Walker on Tatooine
- Loot a Repulsor Coil from Old Shields on Nar Shaddaa
- Loot a Macrofuser from Old Artillery on Alderaan
- Return to Tren Vaido
- Destroy Upgraded Battle Droids
- Confront Tren Vaido
3) Lethal Decor
- Talk to Koghaa Sentry
- Defeat the Entrance Guards
- Talk to Koghaa the Hutt
4) Ready to Serve
- Loot the Master Ident Chip
- Insert the Programming Spike into the HK droid

While this is more than likely true, it's still disheartening.

Yeah that was the original datamined info from beta, but the Section X version was datamined during 1.1 or 1.2. And I believe the companion dialogue with HK-51 is mostly unchanged from the beta version. So they do appear to have had some decent lead time(or are rationing what content is already worked on to stretch it as long as possible).

Makeb scheduled for December. It's gonna bring Chapter 4: The Rise of the Hutt Cartel. Most likely this story will be shared between all classes...

If it's like other large planets, it will take a whopping 2-3 hours to do with 10 minutes of actual story. Oh yes, can hardly contain my excitement.

ORLY, so you can level from level 20-50 in 15-20 hours doing planetary quests, watching ALL cutscenes? Really?

Hmm, interesting, because I think that's a lie.
