Interesting. Did you make this assessment based on playing the Black Talon or Esseles?
In case you were unaware, the patch notes from more-or-less a month ago said that both beginner flashpoints were tuned down to be accomplished by two characters. Its best to base it more on being level appropriate for something like Hammer Station or a Heroic Flashpoint.
Just slept through athiss... flash points are way to easy.
