I'm not saying I agree with your "rip-off" opinion, but even if that was the case, why would you care if the resulting product is still superior to the original? The time of the Old Republic is always going to be superior simply because it boasts an abundance of Jedi and Sith if for no other reason. And without Jedi and Sith the Star Wars universe is really quite boring.
