Anyways, the one subject regarding the Star Wars universe that I have simply no interest in, is the subject matter regarding Hutts. They're simply not that interesting to me, never have been. My personal opinion, of course.

Giant, bloated, interstellar mafia running space grubs. Oooh, fascinating!
Color me crazy, but I highly doubt this new planet was designed specifically for the F2P switch. I'd wager this was already on their "story bible" for the game and had already been in production before the game launched, at least in terms of VO and world design. I think it's pretty clear that they are still tweaking and finishing the build on it, but I am pretty sure they haven't chosen some giant shift in the direction of the story.

This stuff was all already worked out and plotted in advance.
