Star Wars Galaxies Contracts

Star Wars Galaxies features delayed on GameSpot (thanks Ant) is an article revealing that some of the features planned for the upcoming Star Wars MMORPG will not be included when the game launches, currently scheduled for April 15 (story). The delayed features include "player-owned cities, drivable vehicles, player-generated missions, and the Dark Jedi character class." The story is based on a forum post by LucasArts producer Haden Blackman, who explains there's "a plan for implementing the postponed systems within the first seven or eight months after launch." The report also points out that "many of the delayed features are not immediately critical because it will take some time for players to attain the necessary levels in order to use them." There is no word on how this impacts the plan to ship an expansion about six months after the game's launch to add space flight and combat to the mix (story).

The problem with SWG is Sony knows to make money all they have to do is release a stable game not a good game or a game with content.
How can that be such a big problem when the game is being developed by LucasArts, who also own the license?
I'm assuming that they were intelligent enough to get some control over release of the game.
