Being able to open the luggage hold is pointless if you are missing more important things - and stuff like the autopilot is appalling on the default airplanes. It's only once you've played with airplanes such as the Level-D 767 that you realise just what you've been missing out.

So that's how you pre-judge something is it, by it's title?
I suppose you judge books by their covers as well...

That's it, despite a lot more being visible, including the radar and ECS. At least in FSX the radio stack and plethora of engine controls are clickable which adds something to the virtual cockpit view. Of course the higher you go in terms of skill, the less real things are going to be but SSE falls short a LOT sooner than FSX does.

I think my main point is these are obviously niche titles which appeal to a very small amount of people here... thats what i meant by worthwhile, you could pick a title which would be of more interest to a larger percentage of the audience.

I spent three years on small cruise ships, two of those on deck, and let me tell you, most of the time those are all you need. Actually, realistically, those are all the controls you have. the interesting part of ship handling is being in close quarters, especially docking and un-docking. You're still using the same controls, but there is one other element which is your deck staff. Once you get next to the dock without hitting it, you have to get the lines over in a certain order and then use your controls in conjunction with the lines to get where you want to be. weather and current conditions can make this even more difficult.
For big ships there is also the challenge of working with tugs.
For what it's worth, some interesting scenarios for this game (DLC maybe) would be navigating locks, Running a barge tow (a whole mess of barges pushed from behind by a tugboat) or maybe a pilot boat.
