I'm actually glad the flashpoints aren't all like BT/Esseless. Doing that stuff with people who haven't read the dialogue is tedious as hell, especially when you're farming loot.
That said, the bosses still have tons of personality, the atmosphere is there and the flashpoints tell stories, just not interactive dialogue. The story behind Cademimu is VERY cool, it's kind of like a Star Wars version of V For Vendetta. The guy yelling out propaganda over loudspeakers, the people in the streets being rounded up and harassed by police, the open revolts by the population...proof that you don't need 30 minutes of canned choices to tell a compelling story of what's going on.
Also, the last boss (who is a bit buggy in terms of his mechanic) is hilarious in his smack talk.
An open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded.
