The overall release pace is slower than ST, but individual series have shorter wait times between books.
Like Republic Commando?

Hard Contact: October 2004
Triple Zero: February 2006
True Colors: October 2007
Order 66: September 2008
The RC books are on a separate contract, so they are an exception to the general rule. Barring events like anniversaries and Destiny, the wait between books of the same series does tend to be shorter in SW than ST nowadays.
Yeah, but are they as well-written? I for one would rather that the Trek authors take their time and do good work than that they just turn them out. Chekhov didn't write The Cherry Orchard in a month, and Rome wasn't built in a day. I'd rather wait the ten years between Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows than get it really soon but not be as good.

Besides, I've got other books I have to read, too, y'know!
