This is an easy feature that would help the roleplay side of the game tremendously.

But it would also help in simple situations like group quests and flashpoints.

Plenty of times I have tried to get the attention of groupmates by using /say and /yell when they did not respond to party chat.

Having a little chat bubble pop up that says "DON'T STAND IN THE FIRE" can make a world of difference for players new to MMO group dynamics, or simply asleep at the keyboard.
Jedi may be able to see things before they happen, but Smugglers always shoot first.

Again, this something even a lot of non-RP'ers want; it makes communication SO MUCH easier, and with the ability to disable them, everyone is happy!

This topic should never leave the front page. Not until a dev finally chimes in with their intentions about the feature. It was a multi-thousand thread in beta, and its fast growing across multiple threads after launch. How could they ignore it? Yet they respond to some topics which were never brought up before, and no one (other then the OP) care about.
Hire website designers that actually have had real life experience in the job.
Then let me know so I can return to the forum.

I really don't understand why this feature was overlooked. I usually defend this game but BW does deserve all the criticisms in the world for it's oversights. I will take a different approach to these forums until basic features like these are added to the game; trolls do your thing.

this is a very BASIC feature of MMO's. I mean, how can you have a RP or RP-PvP server and not allow chat bubbles.

Oh, I have a huge laundry list about their lacking UI ... but this thread is only about chat bubbles.
