Agreed ...

AND .. there is nothing wrong with that. The Republic gets support from somewhere. Or in the case of the Empire ... subjugate others under their tyranny and still others follow willingly.

In other words: the Alliance could easily fit into this scenario as a third party ... IF someone wanted it to!

That said: IMO the production budget and personnel available to the team is stretched so thin that only the most basic of story lines is now being produced.
I sense a disturbance in the force ....
What was ... is no longer
Change is inevitable. To see its future clearly we MUST look at our past with wisdom and understanding

class-specific is ideally the best possible outcome
sensitivity to the force-specific is suboptimal but acceptable (split between Tech User and force wielder)

wish I could undue the events of Knights of expansions
The most wretched hive of troll and villainy

Because not everyone liked the whole third faction thing. It made no sense when we could have easily gone back to our respected factions and lead the fight from there. And that's what most people wanted anyway. A return to Republic vs Sith. Not some third faction that came out of nowhere.

I finally played through LotS for the first time yesterday, on a smuggler. The whole thing took just under 3 hours, not quite as bad as some had said, but not great. Most of it was...kinda tedious. It was similar to Onslaught if Onslaught had only been about Operation Meridian. Also the FP was still bugged in several places, notably Lana disappearing partway through. The LS/DS choice was also idiotic but tbh most of them are, even in vanilla.

What bugged me the most though was my smuggler. Even in past expansions there was still wriggle room for characters to say class-specific stuff. Not much but....my character had no wisecracks, nothing snarky, just 'dour military professional' or 'sentimental Jedi fanboy'.

What I would like in a future storyline is something similar to the class story in Rishi where they can reflect on their choices and how they are so different--and not for the better--from where they started. Something where it actually makes SENSE that my smuggler has seen so much, done so much, that they can't go back to smuggling or charming princesses. Something similar was done with Han Solo's character in the old expanded universe, when he became so massively famous as the guy who helped bring down the empire that it was impossible for him to keep a low profile.

That would be nice. Retcon it back to just after Ziost. I sometimes think everything past chapter 2 of KOTFE is the result of carbonite poisoning.

Hopefully it happens, delivered on your porch in a brown paper bag, aflame with the light of justice.

Straight up, it's never going to happen.

The community wants it. The devs supposedly want it, but with what money?
If it was ever going to happen it would have happened back in the first expansion.

Considering that the most recent "expansion" had less voice acting, less cutscenes and less anything than a single class storyline on a single original 1-50 planet and took a year or so to make....

I'm willing to be proven wrong and want to be proven wrong, but I have lost practically all my remaining respect and faith in the dev team after 7.0.
