this is just , a , ummm ,kinda analogy. This is just my opinion coming from a much older gamer.
so , say 7 years ago blizzard invented pizza (just using it as an example, you can replace pizza with anything). Everyone loved pizza. After a year or so of eating nothing but pizza blizzard invents some coke to go with your pizza. Now your like wow , pizza and soda this is amazing.
another year or so goes by and blizzard is like we have added sausage to our pizza! and you can now get cherry coke!
cool , more stuff on my pizza. So, your going on 2 years of pizza and soda.
During this time other businesses start releasing pizza. You try it and some people may like pepsi and the other companies pizza better. The majority however, enjoy that suasage pizza and cherry coke.
another year goes by and blizzard invents stuffed crust pizza and diet coke (gotta watch the calories). People were slowly getting tired of pizza , this new pizza has something "different" to it , and the sugar free coke , is a nice touch.
yet, another year goes by and blizzard adds onions, mushrooms, chickent, sausage and label it supreme pizza. no different beverage flavor. So your like "eh maybe i'll try it". The pizza is getting old though. Despite all the added stuff its still pizza and soda.
after years and years of pizza and soda, you want something different. Companies come out with veggie lovers, meat lovers, buffallo chicken pizza, mountain dew, dr.pepper. It's still pizza and soda.
In reality, people are tired of pizza for 8 years in a row. That's why steak is taking off (league of legends) and other different styles of games. People keep looking in the pizza box expecting something different, but all your getting is a different type of pizza.
swtor , basically made a fancy pizza box but when you opened it, there was cheese missing, sauce dripping out the sides, but it came wrapped up nice.
quit playing the same game expecting different results.
oh and i did play swtor, great game till you get max level, after that , yes, it is just another pizza. in the mean time im enjoying a variety of different food groups. Steak (league of legends) on mondays, buffalo wings (dungeon defenders ) on tuesdays, chicken or fish the rest of the week (fps games, steam specials what have you).

Unfortunately you underestimate the stupidity factor of these developers making these games. The stupidity factor requires that you take into account that one guy on the dev team in the meeting that calls out, "HEY! WOW HAS TEN MILLION SUBS LET'S COPY THEM!" and everyone claps as they destroy their game's future.
