I like that idea, but better get them working (it's mostly annoying with most of the so far in the game).
use a skill like [take cover] [force sweep] or any other ability you can activate without a target, and it will stop your movement, which is a useful way to help you land where you want. Not too sure what your issue on corellia is. I never had issues there. For the republic fleet datacron there is an issue but the above method fixes that.
