Often if there is a player with the same companion as us in the area (rather big) and we have same companions, once we click on our companion to bark, the other players' companion will start talking. This means facial animations and voice will not be coming from our npc but someone's. This also applies to the comments made by companions when entering a certain area. This is an issue because if the other players' companion is far away enough then we won't be able to hear anything.
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not? - Accept my referral to express gratitude for my years-long fight for iconic Jedi attire in this "Star Wars" game. You'll get some goodies on top of it, too.

Yes! I can confirm similar behavior.

Repeatable steps:

I was on my Jedi Knight, but had my Treek companion summoned. There was another Jedi Knight by the GTN terminal next to me, who had Kira summoned. I sent my Kira on a crew skill mission, and immediately I saw that other player's Kira speak the words "You finally trust me to do something," which is one of the barks she says when going on a crew skill mission. That other players Kira spoke the words my Kira was saying when I sent her on a mission.

Does it when you send them out on a crafting mission as well. Been doing this for as long as I can remember.

Revelation: This has been going on for a very long time. A VERY long time. Last I saw it was set as a minor but that was being put off until the big stuff was taken care of.

Statement: I hope this gets fixed. Though it is a small thing that I've gotten used to, it still is annoying.
