I honestly don't see how they could afford to continue with this. If they merged it down to three or four servers, sure, but even then it's not worth continuing development for.
Biggest MMO flop ever.
Lowca was never a high pop server, others have a good bit more players but yea I'm sure the team on SWG are a skeleton crew none the less.
They cannot merger the servers do to the way the game is constructed, there are far to many hurdles. First of which, who decides who gets to keep their homes and businesses surrounding the cities? Second all the resources are unique to each server, who decides which resources stay and which go?
Last, it's not remotely the biggest MMOG flop ever. There was a time (just after the CU hit,) where more then a million people were playing. But mere months later the NGE ruined that.
