If people wanted PvE and PvP content to be blended together they'd ask for it.

PvE server = People who don't want to be forced to PvP
Is that just too simple a concept to understand?

I understand about how PvErs don't like being forced to PvP in order to do these events, believe I know, I myself am a PvEr. But guys I mean this whole game is full of people who will gank you on any server. If you guys are still like "oh well this is a PvE server they shouldn't do this," then you should really realize that there are PvPers on all servers. Almost every planet is PvPable, so if you guys have a problem with this, then you have a problem with almost every planet. If you guys dont want to get ganked, play a stealth character if you have one, or get a group together to help you get to locations to do quests. Bioware could have made it more efficient I will agree on that, but they've had so many cuts that they're barely keeping this game up and running. If you get ganked, don't blame Bioware, they have enough trouble dealing with keeping this game alive. And if you guys still have a problem then let me tell you, is the Black Hole PvPable, yes it is. Is Ilum PvPable? Yes it is. Don't blame Bioware for being gankable, blame the people who gank you. There will always be those sorts of people in video games, Bioware has no control over it.

On a pve server the pve players should not have to change their behaviour to accommodate the pvp players.

The pvp flagging exploits need to be fixed, and there should be no forced pvp AT ALL on a pve server.

CAUTION: DO NOT LOAD SWTOR UNLESS YOU HAVE AFTER-MARKET COOLING INSTALLED!!

Um, they could not put events in a Open World PvP area? You seem to misunderstand the problem here.

There aren't a lot of non-Open Wold PvP areas

This isn't forced, you don't have to do it.

Um, have you played the game? Ilum and the Outlaw's Den are the only two places I can think of that are Open World PvP areas.

It's a new system, not just passing content. If the system is important to pve players then setting it in pvp area makes it exclusionary to the majority of players who rolled on a pve server so they don't get open world pvp forced on them.

Speculative feedback at this point is necessary, as the HK-51 forced pvp shows Bioware does not yet understand forced pvp is not wanted - they could easily be doing it again.
