I agree they found it more profitable. Profits are driven by sales, which are driven by demand. The demand for an MMO must be big enough for LA to determine it's more profitable than a single player K3. Granted, the margins are probably higher on an MMO, but so are the costs for server maintenance, software updates, and labor costs associated with the development of such a massive story. So your point that they found it more profitable inherently implies that they also determined the demand would be more (or at least sufficient enough) to supplant the single player K3 project. In other (more simpler) words, more people want the MMO.
I'd like to point out that I would definitely prefer the single player K3, as would most on these forums, but we are not in the majority.
Yeah i know it just sucks. Hopefully someday after the mmo is released and fans get tired of it LA will make the single player version they were set out to do. But until then ill set my eyes on TFU2 and hope and pray that one day the single player K3 will arise out of the darkness and emerge into the daylight of the star wars fans and finish the story of revan and the exile.
