Point of Cartel Titles?

Is there a point to Cartel titles other than parting us from our CCs?

Stuff like "The Blockade Runner" or "The Skip Tracer" doesn't make me want to buy it - it makes me wonder why people do buy it. The people I've asked say they do it for completion (they have all the other titles or are working on them) but couldn't they just get all the non-CM titles?

There's something tacky about titles you bought, feels too much like real life

Not everybody plays the game the way that you do.

Some people like to collect all things that are collectible.
This is an item for them.

I have bought lots of those packs but not for the titles.

However I have activated the "crime lord" titles that dropped on some of my characters though.

The other titles collect dust in the bank

The titles seem good for smugglers.
The siege of Coruscant was in fact brought to an end after the republic agreed to give the Empire a Shrubbery, one that looked nice and wasn't too expensive.

My guess is they are junk to fill up the packs. If the packs only had good things people would stop buying them when they got what they want. However fill them with junk and a few gems and people will keep buying them.

Can't you just buy the titles for credits on the GTN anyways and not waste your own cartel coins on them?

They bait you in with the prospect of a big win.

Fluff? Filler? Some people are completionists and like to collect every title in the game.
That's my guess.

I'm not entirely sure what a skip tracer is even supposed to be.

well in a vernacular - its a bounty hunter that catches accused of crime, who posted a bail using bail bonds service, and then didn't show up for court date - skipping it. so you are literally tracing a skip.

one of my bounty hunters is most likely will be spotting that title, just because

but in general, the point of titles is fun. but I doubt anyone buys cartel packs specifically for titles.
