Words cannot describe how happy I am that they've added an option to opt out of the slow motion space travel... even if I am still forced to sit through way too many slow moving close ups of a planet I just wanted to give a quick scan.

It was especially torturous when it was the Nexus or one of the planets, where you just wanted to pop in to turn in a quest or two.

You forgot the part where it slowly sucked out your soul while waiting.

You also...

...forgot the part of the unskippable planet landings....ARGH seriously if anything deserved a skip option it was THOSE!!!!

@Guest: I just wanted to scan those 50 planets... for that one quest... There is NOTHING of interest on the vast majority of the planets... somehow...

@Sharp-Claw: Cue joke about my haircolor here?

@Robert Archer: Ah, but you see, by the time it was time to land I was already dead of old age.

Programmer side of me says that slow motion cutscenes are a great way to fill the void between loading times (remember the elevator in the Citadel?)

Gamer side of me says f*&k that. At least fill us in with some entertaining dialogue! (remember the elevator in the Citadel?)

What I'm saying is that we need more elevators.

@ihavenoideawhatiamdoing: Oh, yes, if it was all about hiding loading times, that would be great (which is why I'm kind of ok with the unskippable landing bits) but... like... that planet I want to scan genuinely has, at the best of times, a little deposit of something or other on it. It cannot possibly warrant an eternity of space travel.
And yes. More elevator dialogue would solve everything. Everything.

But the immersion! You have to feel like you're the one travelling from planet to planet!

@Neko: It was very successful indeed them. It felt like years and years passed :p

You can press x to skip. I discovered this only on my second playthrough. Doesn't do much though.
