To me it sounds like you're doing a good job. Tank has 3 things he has to do: hold agro well, have decent gear with endurance and defense/shield, and lead the group. You appear to be doing 1 and 2 well, and learning to do 3, which is more than can be said about other players out there.

You should look under Preferences -> Keybindings for the marker symbols and bind them to the numpad or something. Then tell your group what the convention is: attack the Target, Blaster, Lightsaber, and sleep the Star, for example.

You need to know what crowd control is available in your group, and generally move whatever you've aggroed away from the sleeping targets so that AoE attacks don't wake them up. Also need to know which targets are casters and which targets will follow you because they are melee. Also, what special abilities the bosses have. So basically, because you need to control most of the fight while tanking it, you kinda become the boss.

Healer's job is to keep you alive, your job is also to keep healer alive, DPS job is to kill fast without gaining agro.
