The point is, I'd get quite sick of the raiding of enemy bases just to gain experience and credits to get new weapons to kill more people to get more credits to get more weapons to kill more... Christ, that's boring as hell!
I agree with you. Combat has to be a major element (I wouldn't take it otherwise) but it by no means has to be the only element, imo. BioWare must create this in such a way that it is still interesting and worth playing once the 20 hours or so of story (going by K1 and TSL) has ended, and constant combat isn't the answer, far as I'm concerned.

True, unfortunately. But the story doesn't have to be quite so linear as the likes of TFU. If they added quests that would differ based on your class (though probably a Heraklean task) it would offer us at least some small sense of controlling the story, or borrow from GTA IV's experiment with player selected paths (though that was somewhat limited).
