Get a good group and finish every FP in 20-40 minutes.
I would LOVE to see you pull off a 20-40 minute hard mode false emperor. My guild group that I typically run with has 2 knock backs and we abuse it a lot on trash. Even clearing the bonus boss we average about a 1 hr 10 min run.
Also about dialogue in the flashpoints, yay okay you guys spent millions on voice overs and stuff and ya...was fun leveling for a while and once you've chosen each option once already...yeah it gets old fast. Trash will always be around until they release an arena style environment (heck look at colicoid, flashpoint really doesn't have trash, just puzzles really). Dialogue in flashpoints need to go the way of the albatross after the 10th time. (Also good god having buggy dialogue options that end up not spawning the boss, hello HK in FE.)
