Boarding party isn't terribly difficult. What i find EXTREMELY annoying is this stupid as **** system where you get locked out of the instance when you complete the quest. If you manage to kill the main guy before both the others are dead and wipe, you're screwed. If you manage to kill all of them all, the chest will most likely bug out anyways.
And it bugs you from then on I think if you got the Weeklies Mission from the Mission Board. We went to do HM Illum and for about 30 minutes it was giving us problems like not letting us in (saying our flashpoints had to be reset) and then when we finally did, the fourth person in the group was getting bugged to where they couldn't see invites.
