So I completely skip doing it and start my flashpoints at from Hammer Station and upwards.

Please Bioware for the love of precious time, do not make a flashpoint last an hour unneccesary via showcase dialogue voice over. Minimise it to nothing more as informative. Double the social points gained at the end so noone complains.

/end rant.
My lowbies will either solo Esseles / BT or find groups through chat that are skipping convos or doing 'spacebar run'.

I won't run them with random GF groups - not only is watching the convo's slow and painful, but more likely than not, people watching convos are the same ones who will roll need on stuff they cannot even use.

In the MH versions, I'll ask people to skip if they aren't doing so right at the start. If they don't start skipping, I drop.

I simply love the cutscenes, voices of actors etc. Smuggler choices just can't be skipped IMHO.
I hate those "SKIP" and "SPACE". Skip for yourself, spacebar commandos.
Let me enjoy game the way I want, not as you want me to do.
100th time you say? Well, have you ever thought of doing something new instead? Makeb, GSI, new alt. There are many options. Try ops - get minimal cutscenes.
By the way, are you skipping all the dialogues while leveling too?
P.S. And no, I'm not a newbie.

With flashpoints in general (not just Esseles) I tend to go with the group with regards to spacebarring conversations and/or skipping mobs. Having said that, even if I've seen a flashpoint dozens of times I do prefer to not spacebar nor skip boss mobs. But again it's not enough of a deal for me to not do so if the rest of the group is spacebarring and/or skipping mobs.

Good for you that you enjoy them. The only reason why I am in Esseles is because i'm leveling another alt. My 8th to be exact. I do skip most quest dialogues aswell. I already know it so why read it and listen to it again.
