"Where's capital ship combat?!"
lol, and you were right...just look at this thread.

Personally, I am happy as hell they are coming out with real space in this game. I have been waiting for this since they first told us space was going to be on rails.
Republic: Krulex (Shadow) Kn (Guardian) Krll (Sentinel) Wanatrime (Vanguard)
Imperial: Wraiven (Assassin) Krullous (Marauder) Krawl (Jugg) Xin (Jugg)

They'll focus on the cash shop, as the amount invested vs return proportion is potentially much larger.
I'd argue the opposite. Full, 3D space flight is exactly what they should be making. It's not as niche as you think, as biowares own poll shows. And even if it is niche, that doesn't mean it would be a waste of time. There's plenty of niche genres that people like to play

compared to the world population, video gaming is a niche activity

I like x-wing vs tie fight and would by it if it came out today. I don't think it's on the top of many peoples list though.
Bit of a necro on your comment and you may not see my response.

But seriously, you're fighting SO HARD to make sure that 3D space combat doesn't get added. Jeez. I personally would be thrilled to have it.

I get that your argument that space combat games aren't popular. But back before Chris Roberts made Wing Commander, they weren't popular either. He happened to make a fantastic game that was fun and it jump-started the genre. If BW added a good space combat portion to TOR I could easily see many people enjoying it who never had interest in space combat before.

I haven't really enjoyed PvP in it's current state. But if there were space combat PvP I would probably log on every day until the last server shut down ...

Indeed, though its becoming more mainstream every year. Look at some of the big media releases over the last 5 years and quite a few are games, rather than films.

3D space combat was one of the top things we wanted in Beta as well, and we still got StarFox Redux instead.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Long before beta even. I'm hoping we'll see it... but I don't know, so I don't think it's a good idea to start speculating with everyone else. Keep it to yourself otherwise someone will see what you say and assume it is fact with no proof at all and then get their hopes crushed if it doesn't happen.

there was this rumor about Freelancer type space.

Well after all these months they must be quite far with the SSSSSP.

Look at all the space related assets which are already in game. Can all be reused.
You know it's not like they had to start from scratch in January with concept art for space ships. It's all right there in the rail missions. Only minor artwork necessary, cockpits, custom ship modules for interiors/exteriors, some stations and hangars, game design and programming work. PvE mission design (import X-Wing), hyperspace jumpgates, Asteroid mining equipment for resources, a galaxy map with 200-300 sectors for a start Maybe voiceovers for radio chatter and BOOM, Expansion 1 ready for preorder! My credit card is hot, hot, hot for this flight sim baby

This, Imo, is the last thing that could really put this game back on the map.
