The problems with space combat from the bridge would be:
-Its boring
-Its tedious
-It is incredibly...mind numbingly repetitive

Captain! Enemy ship off the port bow!
Lock phasers and fire.
Minimal damage to their shields sir!
Fire again.
Their shields are weakening, and they're moving starboard sir!
Fire again.
Their shields are down!
Fire torpedoes.
They've repaired their shields sir!
Fire phasers.
..You see how this goes, all through dialogue pop-ups..

Oh, and you're right, I loath the idea of vehicles, the ARGO sequence from Nemesis filled me with a burning madness of hate I feel to this day.
