I think the crew system is interesting. Shallow, but interesting. There are many ways to hire crew; doing quests for random NPC's or Tenants, and then hiring Penguins with doubloons. Currently, each crew member has their own 'personality'. They will like another crew member, or you, and will run around your ship doing various things. This though, does not give the feel of each crew member a good personality, ironically. Sure, they have names, and jobs, but we need more than that. I think mini-quests could be involved with each crew member, giving them a Bioware level quality personality. Randomly generated backstories, and maybe even a romance system. Crew members could engage in romance with others, or with you, etc.
