Let's face it... Makeb is done, and has been for some time. All they are doing is stalling for time until EA figures out what they're going to do with this game. Additional content beyond Makeb is not being worked on (in my opinion).

This F2P system (as well as milking subscribers for additional money) is obviously not a long term plan. They are trying to scoop up as much money as they possibly can in the shortest amount of time possible. This has been shown with the lack of an anniversary event, with Life Day being exclusively on the Cartel Market, and now slapping a price onto an already diminished free content update and calling it an expansion.

It's my belief that after they run out of pre-existing content (aka, Makeb), EA's going to cut their losses and close the game down.
Lets get a grip here lol, by all accounts the game is still 2nd largest sub game out there, population had stabilized and f2p added a revenue stream to that. This doom-peddling is getting ridiculous lol

Like I said it's possible since the expansion revolves around the Hutts and Varl was intended for 1.4. If you look at 1.3 in that link, you'll see a lot of it was split up and made into 1.3 to 1.6. That's why I'm certain Varl could be considered to be included with the expansion, but this is only based on presumption.
Makeb could be Varl reworked due to a refusal from Lucasarts, but no one knows yet
This planet better be fleshed out and full of stuff to do...

What refusal is that?
Any character, species, world or technology which appears in any Star Wars material automatically becomes property of LucasFilm. Makeb, whether it's original or not, is now owned by Lucas. Varl still has a chance of appearing in the near-future.
If you'd like to see more Explorable Worlds in Star Wars: The Old Republic,
then head to this thread and discuss, list and vote which you'd like to see and explore in the game:

You sure you wanna bring topic of losing subs to a thread you enter with intention of white knighting on TOR's behalf?

Yeah! it isn't!

I mean.. Outlands wasn't a single planet! (it was actually merely the remnants of one)
Northrend wasn't just a single planet! (it was only a single continent)
Pandaria wasn't just a single planet! (again, merely a single continent)
Rohan isn't a single planet! (also, merely a single country)

Until anyone knows how big this actual 'single planet' is, you have no right to make this bold claim. So just hold your cards a bit closer to your chest and wait until we actually know things instead of shouting stuff like that.

Ofcourse a planet can be a expansion, you do not know how many playfields it will cover.

5 levels sounds like Voss and Corellia together and that is fine by me

Not unless they exponentially raise XP gains from everything and that's quite unlikely. F2p usually means more grind not the other way around heh.

If you're supposed to level from 50-55 the ammount of content and size of the place is gonna have to be closer to hoth and tat than to quesh where you got 1 level in what, late 30s?

Quesh does not even have ONE LEVEL of content.
Please answer me as to why you think a planet with at least 7-8 times the quest content (due to exp inflation) of Quesh would be the same size? Honestly, just ****.
