And yet, with a little effort, you can.
Btw, who makes their game "about f2p"? No one. There is no "World of Free to Play craft" where you and a few friends team up and do battle with evil f2p models to save f2pzeroth. What I find most funny about this is that swtor has made a bigger deal out of going f2p than most of the games I've watched transition to f2p. So if anyone is "making their game about f2p" its swtor.They aren't competing in the F2P market with anyone because they don't want F2P to be what the game is about.
I find it even more funny when these F2P'ers go "I guess its back to WoW for me then..". Where they have to pay 20USD per month, but complain that they cant pay 15USD for TOR.
If you don't like what is offered by the F2P system, then don't play, that is the biggest and the best way to complain. If EAware was so excited about pushing F2P and then see people aren't playing it because they feel like it is too restrictive they might actually tweak some things.
I bet it costs a Cartel Coin for your toon to access toilet paper to take a shit! It is absolutely bad in every way.
It's not even worth overworking my CPU/GPU to play their abomination of a F2P.
first off f2p was introduced to pull in new players, these players don't like what they see due to the restrictions and they do exactly as you say, then where is the game? exactly where it started and probably worse off.
second i think this sums it up better

i still have cargo hold access going for ~1million on the gtn. seriously, when will these people learn that no one will buy that?
@OP the leveling tends to feel very slow if you're using the f2p option. I believe you get to use the flashpoint finder 3 times every lockout (1 week) and can join 5 warzones. The restrictions seem pretty harsh especially the no rested xp and titles. In reality it's free once you buy it and regardless of how some (myself included) think ea could have followed a better f2p model like lotr the game is still free so we can't complain too much. If you max out and want further content it's not the worst sub you'll ever spend.
Take the Serena challenge
oh btw, abuse the daily flashpoint quest from the finder. that thing gave me 1/4 a level at 44 with the xp cut in addition to all the xp i got from the place and all other quests involved. that quest helps A LOT
