Yes, it would absolutely help making easier decisions for new players, and prevent situations where Europeans have to play on an American server because of a bad decision (and vice versa). You mentioned SWTOR and too many servers - I think that is the case with Lotro as well. I don't see the point of around 28 servers with 80% of them having small weak populations, on the contrary, i think the number is absolutely bizzare. The question about the benefit of merging some low population servers arises again.
