There are a few reasons why explore missions can be nice:

1. If you're interested in the silly grind that crafting is in this game, exploration missions are a pretty good way to get resources, as some of the random spawns are resources, some missions are just to scan 5 resource nodes, and the other missions usually have a healthy scattering of the nodes anyway.

2. Exploration badges.

3. Some XP

@OP

I agree that the first runthrough should give full xp, and subsequent runthroughs should be the ones with reduced xp.
