If you've ever watched Stormtroopers firing their rifles, you realize that it was probably a good idea people were moving in closer back in the old republic

I believe what the OP is referring to is that there are no vibro-weapon type specialists in the classes. Think Gamorrean vibroaxe wielding thugs in Jabba's palace in Ep VI.

My guess is that a class like this didn't feel "epic" enough as a character in the SW universe and they are on the right track like that. In a sandbox -type SW game you could not do without them ( SWG ) but in a more storytelling type mmo like SWToR you don't really expect them ( just my opinion ).

As a future addon, a scrapper melee class would be awesome.

Probably true for why it wasn't included.

The operative class does have a heavy melee focus and uses the vibroknife frequently. It's a very rouge-like class with some good support options.
