Trying to get everyone's thoughts on this:
I've also posted this as a suggestion on the SWTOR forums. Now, I understand other things will take priortity over the additions I discussed and they might not be some peoples thing. But think of the more casual gamers playing this game. I think it would snag or trap more casual players in the game longer. Not only that, how many people say "I've got nothing to do"... well this would help alleviate that somewhat and I believe it would help increase the social aspect of the game.
