Black Talon/Esseles, the only to good Flashpoints?

Yes, I know, the level of story in the "just-play" flashpoints is not comparable to the awesome plots of Esseles and Black Talon, but that doesn't mean it is non-existent. Have you played Boarding Party or Taral V yet? Those are the other story flashpoints.

It sure is just an opinion and one that I do not share. Especially with Athiss, there is a ton of story.

And that's just wrong. There is a debriefing with Satele after this where you can voice your opinion on the matter.
Something, something, something, dark side.

So what, did Bioware promise you an 'old fashioned' while you do your FP? Come on...

You took my joke!!!
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory.

The main problem is that so far the majority of flashpoints are of the story-less variety. As they were hyped as this big story experience, this creates some dissonance.
Emotion, yet peace. Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity. Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

Use your anger and hatred. Let it make you strong.

Yeah, Black Talon actually feels like a quest, not a dungeon, even on hard mode. The rest of the flashpoints feel like vanilla WoW instances with the occasional dialogue.
