Loved her interviews and enthusiasm for all things game related. Incredibly sad to see that she is gone.

The stuff you're quoting is from the "CBS Mailbag" incidents which happened after the NGE. Nothing I've seen, and I have looked as far back as I could, indicates they scrapped an original plan and went in with a new one 14 months or whatever from release.
They did rush the game out, not early, it was supposed to be released the previous year, but unfinished. They just couldn't seem to finish the game. Beta players protested they needed to not release the game as it wasn't ready but they went ahead anyway. Koster has been quoted as saying he did alot of last minute changing himself, and you've seen Rubenfeld say he produced the Jedi system in a couple of weeks after launch.
What you really always seem to have with this game is a huge disagreement at every step at all levels as to how the game should play out. No wonder it was/is the messy messy thing we've seen. It never really had a chance.
