My consular is 33rd right now, and I play her with my bf's jedi knight, so I've got a bit more motivation to work on her.
The story IS a bit dry, though there are some interesting parts here and there in act-1. Haven't started act-2 yet, so we'll see what that brings.
Overall, it's not bad, but it's not great. At least to the point where I am right now.
