No amount of metrics can make up for not playing your own game. Why do you think creative games with little funding make sich a splash? Because they play thier pwn product

Every single player is entitled to their opinion and the things mentioned in the ToS - nothing less and nothing more. We are paying for very specific things and we can choose to end our subscription at any moment.
EA/BW is entitled to run their game the way they deem best.

If you ask 10 different forum users/players what they would like to see added/changed, you would hear 10 different opinions some of which would definitely contradict some of the others.

Entitlement is when someone thinks THEIR opinion is de facto the best "for the game's longevity" when in most cases it's (at best) just a personal preference. If you ask a PVPer you'll hear the game needs more PVP elements, if you ask a casual player you'll hear the game needs more solo-player stuff, if you ask a raider you'll hear complaints about rehashed content, if you ask a SWG fan you'll hear the game will die without Pazaak and so on and so forth.

It's EA/BW's job to determine what is best for the game and the way they will move on with it.
If they do it right, the game will thrive. If they get it wrong, the game will die. End of story.

Asking for things that are not part of your "contract" with someone is entitlement.
They might decide to give them to you if they consider them to be in their best interest in the long run, but they are in no way obligated to do so.
I have 1 disagreement. asking is not entitlement. demanding is. very big difference

TOR appears to have been designed by focus groups to make money first and be a good game second. This is almost always a disaster in any entertainment field (movies, music, TV, games).

This is what befell Lucas. He used to make good movies that made oodles of money, then he just concentrated on the making money part and hasn't made anything watchable in 30 years.
