I seem to have terrible hand-eye coordination and can't lead a shot to save my (toon's) life. (Ironically, IRL, I can actually shoot a shotgun very well. Go figure.)

SO. I wanted to get a sense of how much the ones in SWTOR are reliant on you being able to shoot other ships out of the sky with you manning the gun, if that's all there is to it, etc. Any feedback on these missions is much appreciated! I'm a tad OCD and feel itchy ignoring them but don't want to venture forth if I'm going to be frustrated by my inability to do them.
i had the same problems in Kotor I and II - I had to get my 10yr old cousin to help me out because I was unable to make the Taris escape. Now, I have tried the space missions here and found them much better. The mouse-reliant control goes with my natural move responses and the early missions are fairly easy, IMHO.

Okay, so you are basically me. That makes me feel better. I'll set give it a go. And thanks, happysister, for the mouse advice.
