I don't know anything about those games. Well, I do own Jedi Academy, but I don't care for it. It relies too much on dexterity. I've never been into those kind of games (dexterity based FPS type). I like a more story centered game. Which leads me to my point. Too much lag time will hurt the popularity of the game. Especially because it's dependent on a story arc. LA and the game developers will have to ask themselves if people will want to wait say five years to finish the storyline, will it make the current KOTOR fans angry or uninterested, how will it affect sales, will new players be interested - especially if the first two titles are not available anymore so the new players can pick up the story. If they wait too long to release K3, they may as well just release a whole new game with a new story and I, for one, really would like to finish the story and find out what happens to Revan and everything.
