Generally speaking, all (most) boss fights are not melee friendly. Between AoE, knockback, cleaves, etc... Melee dps has to play smart.

Take Denova for example... As a ranged DPS at Toth/Zorn, you can avoid 99% of the damage in the raid. As a melee dps? Even if you do everything right, you are still eating Toth's stomps at a bare minimum.

SWTOR is not the only MMO to do this. It's par for the course quite honestly.
