Not sure how much you've heard about the Consular, specifically the Sage, but here's my 2 cents on it.
Oh and for the story, go LS. DS makes no sense what so ever (Ex. "I helped you out, and you helped me out. We both benefit as does the Republic as a whole! Now what? I KILL YOU! YOU DIE!!"=DS Consular=Wut. While LS is just that without the stupid decision to kill the person, which makes much more sense...)
Just my 2 cents, hope that helped!
I completely concur on this. Consular is boring, but if you are going to play it... play Light Side. I will also apply this to the Inquisitor story. Again, I found Inquisitor boring, but if you are going to play it... play it Dark Side since Light Side makes almost no sense what so ever.
