In fact The Old Republic is suffering a bit right now because BioWare made the mistake of giving the cool dual-saber/dual-wield abilities to DPS classes (Marauder/Sentinel/Assassin/Consular). As a result a ton of nerdy free-to-players flooded the servers with DPS. It's not unusual to find a small guild full of Marauders ONLY.

And the way Flashpoints are constructed most are very difficult if not impossible to finish without a proper tank. I have nightmares about wiping 25 times in a row trying to finish hammer station with 2 marauders and a mercenary (the bounty hunter class that's DPS-centric).

For the record, I'm an operative with healing spec, and almost never have trouble finding a group.
