I like the realistic orbits and realistic rotational period for planets. Being mostly in your ship, a day/night cycle is less of an issue, and if you establish a base on an Earth-like planet, you can choose which "timezone" the base is in. The planet's rotational period might be 30 hours, not 24, so logging in every day at the same time you would 'regress' through the times of the surface. Or you could have a base on something smaller and faster, watch the sun rise and set over your base 10 times in an hour, stars spinning in the always-night-black sky... (you'd leave, but it was so hard to land!)
I don't see the problem.
