I really hope your "ship" or whatever (fighter, bomber) has a progression system in full space combat.

That would be an awesome time sink and a great "alternative" way to play the game.

@Utio: You have to pay the "space team" too.
I'm one of the players who has played only the first space mission and don't care for space in TOR BECAUSE it is not Open flight space. If it were open flight multiplayer space then I would get excited for it. I imagine many others would as well.

There is tons of star wars games that dont have space combat... Besides SWTOR is a sucessor of the KOTORS role playing games, obviously it reflects on this, since the kotors didnt had space combat. Well they had a mini game, naturaly swtor was meant to have a mini game as well, but people complained about an MMORPG not having a fully space combat, so they might be adding this, but it was never in the plans inicialy.

Having 3D space means nothing if they're going to keep the straight rail game they have now. What they need to do is wipe out the current space system and put something similar to what SWG had. Free space roaming, pvp battles and missions where the enemy ships actually shoot back and you can engage in dog-fights.

Anyone who enjoyed SWG's space content & pvp would agree that SWTOR could make this future expansion possible. A few years ago a friend of mine talked me into trying out the space mining and combat in SWG and I hated it at first, but once I built my own custom ship and did some pvp and missions, I was "hooked". I spent weeks mining asteroids and getting the schematics rewarded to build my BH a Black Sun Vigo Gunship after reaching Ace Pilot rank, it was amazing and even more fun with friends controlling the multi gun turrets while I flew it with a engineer and co-pilot. A lot of people complained of control issues, but a pc game controller solved that once you got use to it.

Remember how much they hyped the legacy system updates back when they were actually in developing legacy? Now nothing but silence reagrding future space combat. When they have something worth talking about, they hype it up. When they have nothing but a few scribblings on a wall of crazy, they clam up. Look at what they are doing now.

Personally, I like the space combat as it is. It is a mini game. They only thing I would change is make all the space missions level with the mods added to ship, that way when you have level 5 mods, not every mission is grey.

So what if it is on rails, there is alot of cool rail games. I don't think the space missions were EVER advertised as anything other then what it is. An god, don't make any changes that resemble ANYTHING of SWG, cause that game really did well..../sarcasm off.
