Back when SWG was released, the point of the game (from a developer's standpoint) was to create time sinks that would keep the players waiting and grinding and limited - so that they would keep shelling out those subscription dollars and even pay for multiple accounts.  Since we are under no such directives, we've found it prudent to eliminate a lot of the needless time- and space-wasting inconveniences in favor of many quality of life enhancements.

Some of the things you'll find on Tarkin's Revenge:
