Why does SWTOR not correspond with Lore?

So currently the music system is called a Juke Box which by Star Wars Lore standards would know The Cantina Music Genre is called [mod removed] and The music system is Star Wars is called a [mod removed] Box.

 

However when going to the Forums to ask the Developers to rectify this mistake, my post gets taken down under something about "Sexual Misconduct" which is obviously not the case.

@3XCA1iB3R While I do appreciate your dedication to Star Wars Lore accuracy, you have to understand that the in-universe term for the style of cantina music is much more widely used as a term that is inappropriate for a PEGI 16+ or ESRB: T game.

 

In my head-canon, the in-universe name for the style of music was not invented until much closer to the Battle of Yavin era than the Old Republic era.

Ahh thanks that helps a lot, Yeah I suppose your right about the Genre of music not being present until later in history similar to say Jazz wouldn't have been around in the 1920s and so forth.
Thank you for explaining this yeah I got banned on the forums for this. Honestly much appreciated!

 

I wasn't too sure if this was another case of Political Correctness over accuracy. But I'll give them the benefit of doubt.
