Something like that was talked about at one point... basically the ability to do shuttle fly-overs, I think. Probably lost in everything else, I'd imagine.
Actual landings, though, would have the same map issue we have with ships and bridges. Your "character" is either a ship on a space map or a humanoid on a ground map and can't be both at the same time.
I would not want to fly down as a shuttlecraft and then basically morph from a shuttle into a person. And then your BO's would have to "beam in" anyway.
Don't get me wrong, if they ever build that in I'll be as giddy as the next guy.
