Another reason to use hyperspace routes:
Getting too close to a gravity shadow (SW term for gravity well, methinks) in hyperspace will pull you out of hyperspace. Pirates use "mass blocks"- blocks of superdense material- to create gravity shadows and pull ships out of hyperspace to rob. If you got pulled out too close to a planet, you'd probably crash. Hyperspace routes avoid shadows.
Once you go tank, you never go back!
