I don't think that repeatable events/content are necessarily that good. Sure they can be fun, but are they fun enough to do over and over and over and OVER again?
I think that story content doesn't have to be FEs only. I've said it before, and I may say it again - holding every piece of content to the FE standard is going to prevent content from coming out quickly enough. Not every mission needs a cut scene; not every mission needs a voice over; not every mission needs to be tied to four other missions. Even a bunch of smaller, standalone missions would satisfy me. Sure, we're not getting the main storyline advanced with something like that, but then again, the Breen/Deferi missions didn't advance it either.
