Spamming Inspiring Rhetoric

Hey all

One of the PCs in my group is a Bothan Charmer.  Now, this is something the player brought up, not me!  Basically, he felt that spamming Inspiring Rhetoric every turn during combat was...well, both OP and boring.  Obviously he can choose to do other things, but I just wondered whether anyone else had felt this was an issue, and imposed any sorts of limitations on it - say, once per encounter?  Or is that just unnecessary?

Thanks in advance.

I dunno, is spamming Ranged(Light) in combat a problem?  I'd only consider it spamming if the player themselves said, "I used Inspiring Rhetoric...again" without any sort of narrative description.  I am reluctant to impose any sort of limit as using that action has a cost associated with it just like any other action.  It's only slightly better than a PC choosing to freely recover strain with rolled advantages on their turn, and slightly better enough to make it a useful action for a non-combative PC.

Well then cant we just say 'Should someone shoot their gun every round?' Does the shooter describe in detail how he shoots someone every round?

This actually exactly what we did in my old group, describing the action and interpretting all those advantage and threats into the scene. So yeah, he would have to give a speech or describe IR. Besides its much more fun that way. And as someone pointed out, makes encounters less wargame-esque.
