I've never actually seen this posted anywhere before, so I figured it was worth asking.

Do positioning penalties exist while tanking?

By that I mean, if an enemy is attacking from behind you, are there any penalties to your defensive stats that cause them to do increased damage to you?

For example, in certain other MMOs (e.g. WoW), you are unable to block or parry attacks coming from behind your character, so keeping everything in front of you is a huge priority since you take increased damage if you do not.

Does something similar exist in SWTOR? Are we still able to shield and dodge attacks coming from behind us?
