Deceived hands down.
As for the style thing, look at the differences between the style of K1 and TSL versus TOR. The originals had the Star Wars flavour but were distinct enough to separate them from the movies. TOR, whether it was an LA mandate or an EA/Bioware decision, essentially just transplants designs straight from the movies with no regard to canon or logic. The whole "technology plateaued" argument is ridiculous. It's just a shameless attempt to increase subscriber numbers. While I don't begrudge them making money, they could do it without affecting the franchise and luring in fans under false pretenses.
