I think I'm going to try WoW...
If this game leaves you confused, you don't need to be playing MMOs. They just, apparently aren't for you.

lol Icould not agrre more. When I played eve I did these steps:

1. Launch Ship
2. Travel to asteroids
3. Mine asteroids
4. Return to Space Station
5. Sell ore
6. Repeat steps 1-5

But back to the topic on hand. Like everyone else is saying best thing is trial and error. When it comes to crafting you have to think of if you really want to craft stuff or make money from gathering materials and selling them on the gtn. If you want to craft stuff then you need to get the gathering skills and mission skills that give you the crafting supplies to do so. Take Artifice which is the ability to craft Hilts, Crystals, Lightsabers, etc. You will need Archeology (Gathering Skill) and Tresure Hunting (Mission Skill) to get mats you need to craft what you know. The level of the item depends on the mats you need.

All in all it is trial and error ask, learn, grow. Test stuff out and see what happens. Don't be afraid to get owned by a mob or two. We have all been there.

I want to enjoy it more and definitely play it more often but I feel like I just don't understand half the things going on in it, like how to craft and crew skills and armoring and skill charts and definitely PVP, etc.
At the risk of feeding a troll....

READ.YOUR.CODEX
If you've been playing since launch and you don't know how to craft or harvest, then I don't know what else to tell you, other than maybe try Solitaire.

If that was what you did in EvE, then you sir, have only played 0.1% of this game. Really.
That game is the most complex game on the market today.
There are several hundreds of things you can do in that game, and it will take years to learn it all.
That is definitly one of the most hardcore games out there.

Try and look at this, and you will see how you really missed out on a great game!

Edit: Really i think, EvE was way to complex for you, you simply did not understand the game.

Back to topic.

Swtor, no offence is really *THE* beginner game.
Alot of players in swtor, has never tried playing MMO's before, and are only here because
they like star wars, its as simply as that.

Everything you need to know is described in the codexs or on forums, and in several guides.
But if you need any help with anything at all, ill be happy to answer every question you got.
You can join our new player friendly guild aswell.

Contact me in game, if you like

Sure, because if the game with tutorials confused you the game without them will help
