unfortunately chat bubbles were removed before the game launched, as Bioware claimed it was causing severe lag / framerate issue (I don't understand why since it should be a display on the client only feature, and not 3D intensive either...).

Lead designer / former lead writer Daniel Erickson mentioned several times they wanted to put them back, but never gave an ETA. With him not working anymore on SWTOR, I have no idea when we'll get chat bubbles.
