This game feels abandoned

Other things I feel they could do is add some mroe life to the pretty static animations. If you're sitting still on a flying speeder for example, let it sway and move slightly and not just have it be 100% still in the air. That'd also add some life. (Just one tiny example of what else could be done)

And it's still the craptastic "hanging christmas ornament puppet" spaceship you're "flying".
Learn what on rails means please. Only then will anyone take you seriously here.

Redefining established terms is the only way many of them can pretend to have a complaint.

EDIT: TLDR: Yes i mean this game needs more live dynamic events to bring the galaxy to life, including making use of the slowly added content.

No game is going to sufficiently accommodate everyone "feelings". The game feels abandoned. The worlds feel lifeless. This feels this way. That feels that way. Blah, blah, blah. Newsflash....your subjective "feeling" isn't necessarily the subjective "feeling" of other people.

There was a star wars flight simulator that took place in the first movie. I believe it was also called starfighter or something near that

It's annoying how most of the posts attack the OPs opinion like it's forced on them or they just pick it apart.

This game feels lifeless to me. It's sad that one of the biggest things to come, GSF, has nothing to do with the ground game And it's even having a negative effect on the ground game as well by sucking players into space.

I'm running out of alts to level and I recently got a couple more characters to 55. I'm not even sure what to do with my 55's sometimes. All there is to do is run the same ops, multiple times every week for what?? The only thing I feel like I'm working towards is being able to do hardmode ops which don't interest me at all as a casual gamer. I also can't understand why people put up with them either, spending all night trying to make some progress and not even finishing it.

During the Rakhgoul event weak guards would attack infected players leaving their ship.

We need more stuff like this.

Events that involve us being attack on our ship - events that will raise the stakes (you die you restart the event over from day one, you die and you get a week long debuff - "the pathetic" which mocks you).

There definitely were a good number of SWs Flight Sims in the late '90s (the grand old days of TIE Fighter and Rebel Assault) and early 2000s, but very few in the past decade - Star Wars: Starfighter came out almost 13 years ago (early 2001). I believe the last straight-forward Flight Sim we had was Rogue Squadron III, which came out just over 10 years ago (definitely one of my personal Top 3 favorite Gamecube games).

Since those days though, all we've had is some space gameplay in Battlefront II, the Galaxies expansion Jump to Lightspeed, and, as Zorvan rightly pointed out, the on-rails shooter mode in Clone Wars Adventures.

Will more space content make SWTOR a better game? I think so, and I hope they build upon GSF in the months and years to come. My original point is that I don't feel you can say EA/BW was phoning it in by "only" including the Star Fox mode we had at launch - that was still a lot more than we'd gotten from the vast majority of SW games recently.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.
