Whether any of it works remains to be seem. But I would hardly single out TSW for end-game issues since thats pretty much a global issue with any MMO. I do see TSW having an issue with the puzzle aspect. While that is a major plus right now later on it won't be. But all that means is playing a second time around will be closer to any MMO on the market - quest, combat, and repetition is still there. The puzzles, cinematics, and story just make the first time around more enjoyable.
I agree, MMOs are being consumed way too fast these days, and I don't see what anyone could do to prevent that right now. A solid, lasting PvP system might hold some players, but far from everyone cares about PvP.

I feel this development is a bit of a shame - it means a lot of MMOs don't get enough resources to realize their full potential. Age of Conan had lots of potential, as does The Old Republic. I haven't tried TSW, but it wouldn't surprise me if it shared a similar fate.
