Then I do not think you will be playing the game because I don't see any of your four points happening.

Expect to see the standard $15/month fee. I do not think this is unreasonable at all and yeah while I would love to see low or no fees just like everyone else, I just do not see it happening.

There will probably be certain areas where pvp is enabled and others where it is off, but pvp is definitely going to be a part of the game. You don't have republic and sith factions so they can play nice.

Why would I want to play a game where I spend hours on progress, so an insane or angry fan could kill me off. Are we talking about arcades, or are we talking about a pc game? *Insert another quater to start over* Ouch.
They have already said there is no save function and it is unrealistic to expect a save function on an mmo.

I personally like the stylized graphics but I assume this is what you are referring to by cartoon. Stylized graphics over photo-realistic graphics last much longer because they do not become dated as quickly, and lowers the system requirements which gives the game a much larger audience. The only problem I have with the graphics from the few screenshots I have seen are the lightsaber sizes which they are addressing.
