Hey, a taun taun mount or companion I could get down with, lol, but a useless pint sized pet? No thanks.

Sure, just move a question about Bioware's design decisions and priorities to Story and Lore, so no one will bother reading it...

Even the crystals were just a different color versions of stat crystals already easily available and just a vanity color item essentially as well.
Yup, just a vanity item. The Containment Officer uniform functionally is no different than the Formal Dress or Suit you can get from the Drommund Kaas / Coruscant vendors, the crystals are no different than what you can make other than color, etc. They offer almost no gameplay advantage over other peopel, aside from the crystals, and even those are relatively minor, I'd guess.

You know Drakonnen you're right about that. Why in the heck people need a Tauntauns. I remember riding one in Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. Those animals weren't accorate they missed half the time and no offense to the makers. But they need to stop listen to children who aren't old enough to play. Those people remember playing pokey man and star wars legos.

I feel like the children have gotten a hold of the game and turned into a Disney Land legoland playground.

First it's Star Wars the Pokey Man Wars. Then before it's disrepectful for speaking for having an opinion. What next.
May the Force be with you. May the force be with us all.

I like the pets. They're "fluff' and serve no in-game purpose, but they're kinda fun.

They are lag muppets. Especially on fleet.
Forever and always forward.
Please save me from the shortsightedness of developers that think they are clever.
More family tree options
Yeah! I just made Legacy Level 8. (and I didn't even get a T-shirt)

When could you make a tauntaun spit in jedi academy? Don't remember that at all.
