I noticed on TORWars this morning that Game Reactor posted two video interviews from Games Con 2011. BioWare’s Dr. Greg Zeschuk talks about things we mostly know, but he does go into more detail about the space fighting mini-game, which does look very cool. Apparently you can fly around the galaxy and find "space missions" on your way to planets, and go have a crack. I assume this might be like in Mass Effect, where you get a galaxy map UI where you can zoom around the planetary systems, click on a planet and go land on it, so space missions might show up on the map and you can click on one and go play.
Secondly there is a video with EA's Frank Gibeau, although that mostly talks about how EA works as a company, a little bit about the Origin stuff and Steam.
