I've come to enjoy the space missions quite a bunch. What was it someone called it? A rail shooter? The scenery is pretty and the action is fast.

I also rather like the opening sequence of Revenge of the Sith. A harrowing space battle, cutting through an army of droids, and, finally, a vicious encounter with a Sith Lord.

It seems that it might be possible to form such a sequence in an MMO setting in SWTOR.

Vehicle combat is often choppy and contrived using the engine of "the-game-that-shall-not-be-named", but the rail shooter in SWTOR (sweator) is quite immersing and the ships themselves are characters in their own right. Although, a snub fighter that the character also owns/equips may be a better option for ground maneuvring and crash landing in a star destroyer.
