Firstly, having to go into orbit every time you go somewhere gets a bit tedious. It's great for crucible and when sorting and prepping your fire team, but maybe accessing the orbit map from the select menu would be better. Likewise the cinematics early in the game should be skippable. Don't get me wrong, they look lovely, but sitting through it each time for each character gets a bit much.
I feel the same way. Why go to orbit just to bring up a map? Let us bring the map up while in the tower so we don't have two load times... one to get to orbit, one to get to wherever.
