Concering HM The Foundry, I just found out, that if I let the Hyperspace Animation finish (so not "spacebarring" around) then I can pass the dialogue phase who would otherwise crash.

If I spacebar thru the dialogues, then the game crashes at the holocom dialogue part.

So if someone has a crash with HM Foundry, he may try that workaround too of not skipping but watching completely the Hyperspace animation before reaching the holocom part.

The workaround from the OP does not work for me.

Not being able to complete either The Esseles or The Black Talon is excruciatingly frustrating.
Get your DEV team to do something useful and fix these bugs! Instead of bringing out more new stuff, fix the old stuff first.

It works for me for The Black Talon but not the The Esseles.
(Edit: The workaround does not work anymore for the Black Talon since 1.6 for me)
And yes it's very frustrating and still not fixed, and I'm starting to think it will never be fixed

This problem has been going on for (as far as I know) 2-4 weeks at this point. How hard is this to actually fix/do something about. It's frustrating taking to the time to go through an entire instance and then being unable to gain the rewards for doing so. Do something about this, Bioware.

Be calm. The next new items in Cartel Market will include the «Esseles/BT crash fix pack» for 1250CC!
Account wide fix will cost 2500CC
Missandei Shadow ...yet shadows can kill. And oft-times a very small man can cast a very large shadow.

No dice, the Cartel Market is also not working.

It still works for me. You must be doing something wrong. As long as you don't see the hyperspace animation on screen it won't crash. You have to alt+tab(fullscreen) or minimize(windowed) immediately after talking to Harken, before the animation. You also need to wait long enough for it to finish. I just ran Esseles again and it still works.

Hopefully it will be useful while we're looking into the issue with Hyperspace animations that some players are seeing.
or you could FIX the issue...but fat chance on that

I just ran BT, picked return to fleet, and crashed. Reopened the game, picked return to fleet, alt+tabbed out, waited, opened back up, mission complete. So it still works for me.
