Where are the stories?

Black talon was fantastic, great instance, ive done it about 30 times since beta, probably skipped the story twice. I was looking forward to seeing this kind of experience for every flashpoint there after and i was excited to see what happens next.

Well, i felt like i experienced the classic bait and switch, ive done the hammer, it has 1 alignment choice and you could careless about what it is, you dont feel the consequence of your actions, hell you dont even really know what your actions actually did. Same goes for Athiss, and Mandelorian raider and im quite certain it goes for every other flash point after black talon/ the essles.

You get 1 boss, 1 obligatory alignment decision, 4 or 8 social points and 3 more bosses. Cmon bioware, you are supposed to be changing the mold, you cant get lazy after putting so much work into your first. Your most engaging flashpoint cant ONLY be your first one.

I pray that the story is being worked on, and it will be patched in at a later date, otherwise you guys havent done enough with the group content, how the heck are we supposed to farm social gear if we only have limited opportunities for group conversation.

On republic side Taral V and Maelstrom nebula are nice story driven flashpoints at level 33-37. I'm sure empire side its the same with diffrent flashpoints.

The Black Talon and Esseles have been around since the early stages of the game. They have has a lot more time and polish dedicated to them.

The same is true for the level 35ish flashpoints and the ones at level 50 (Like Taral V or False Emperor).

All of the other flashpoints are pretty recent additions, and unfortunately are pretty bare-bones in comparison.
Chewie and I have gotten into pants more heavily guarded than this.

You say that as though those 2 fleshed out flashpoints make up for the shallow ones we are meant to put up with in between.

Shocking news: a developer can tell a story in more ways than the conversation wheel.

Shocking, I know.
