I do like the idea of the Firefly-esq format, but they're still need to be a central plot and arcing story. It can't all just be about getting work and choosing between being an "honest" smuggler or a cut-throat pirate. Basically you'd need something to give you a reason the keep playing other that an endless series of sidequests.
Sure the new game will be different with co-op, but that doesn't mean it would be a bad game. Just different. It can also have an central plot with side quests. The main quest can be nuetral with different consequences depending wich side you pick.
