I am in agreement with this.

And since we're on the topic of the maps: One of the main reasons the planets look too small is that the endless asteroid/ debris fields are ruining the forced perspective. When you see a rock in space the size of your ship, and then you see it next to a planet, you get a proper sense of scale.

If the surrounding space was empty, you can maintain the illusion you're stopping a good distance away before beaming down.
