Have you considered Bounty hunter or Trooper? Both feature heavy armor and a mix of long range and hand-to-hand abilities. As either class, you'll have the choice of an advanced class that either has a tank's damage mitigating defensive cooldowns, or some capacity to heal, even when specialized for damage.

Because the Group Finder tool wants to put groups together as fast as possible, players whose characters can potentially tank or heal do sometimes find themselves enlisted into that role. Some possible workarounds for this might be to join a guild and participate in their Flashpoint activities, or to find pick-up groups through chat in the Fleet station in order to make sure you get the role that you want. Being flexible about how you make your contribution to a successful Flashpoint team will probably get you faster rewards, though.
