Said the same thing in a big thread of cover changes here: http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...83#post2787883
It's especially important if you are fumbling to get into cover to pop Hunker Down or Pulse Detonator but end up getting killed because you have to press 2 buttons to the enemy's 1.
But then again GS/sniper just sit there and don't have to worry about facing etc. Having to enter cover first is not an issue. No need to simplify the game further.
