Well in SW:G to get some xp you just camp, literally make camp and
sit in it, and that's it.

I've never met a player that likes it. I've never met a player that
does not hate it.

So of course there is emergent behaviour at camp sites, where
campers can sit in strategic positions outside cities and as close
to each other as possible. So (a) people are trapped like passing
algae, (b) so campers have someone to chat to (c) so people can run
/ speeder in and out of each others camps to up the xp and reduce
the camp time.
