Ok i'm gonna take a crack at this based on my experience thus far:

Smuggler
Most fun dialogue options, this guy's 1 liners are great. Story is pretty decent, not amazing but definitely worth a play through. Later game PvP and PvE they're fine, maybe one of the better healers due to high mobility.

Imperial Agent
Same as smuggler but not as many good 1 liners, but probably the best story in the game and the one that can be influenced the most by your decisions.

Trooper
I am currently working through the game with a Vanguard. Story: pretty good, PvP with Vanguard is a lot of fun due to being tanky and being able to jump to and pull people around. Commando I havent played much.

Bounty Hunter
Same as trooper but a better story (at least I enjoyed it more due to the setting of being a bounty hunter) and of course you weild blaster pistols instead of rifles (which are no way near as cool). The biggest plus side to BH is their animations are considerably cooler than the Trooper's.

Jedi Knight
Either tanky and a tough time levelling, or dual weild and melt everything. I heard Guardians are not so hot in PvE tanking right now, they can do it but people are generally finding them pretty 'meh'. Storyline is usual action hero star wars stuff you'd expect.

Sith Warrior
Same as the Knight but with a darker story line. Personally I find the Warrior one slightly more interesting because we haven't had that many opportunities to dive deep into the sith story in video games outside of SWTOR. The Warrior also has better companions early on (IMO).

Jedi Consular
Sage has virtually 0 lightsaber attacks. Don't play this unless you're prepared to go 100% spell caster. Shadows are very strong right now due to their overall kit but they're considered hard to play as they require a lot of button pushing and using things at the right time.

The Consular story is good and interesting, but requires a bit more patience than the other stories. I'd argue it's actually one of the best if you're a role player or love star wars in general and pay a lot of attention to detail instead of mashing space bar.

Sith Inquisitor
Story was written by the intern, widely considered to be the worst story in the game. It's not BAD, it's still pretty decent as it obviously went through some QA from Bioware, but it's pretty straightforward compared to the other classes.

Most annoying class in the game right now
Strictly speaking from a PvP perspective: snipers/gunslingers - these guys are so annoying in PvP its ridiculous, they just setup camp and you can't do much, immune to all sorts of CC, decent defense, if they pick a good spot or have a healer on them they're going to put out some big numbers. I really dislike playing against these guys because... ugh.

Most needed class
Healer. Anything healing. 90% of the time I see people LFG they need a healer for the last spot. In PvP I see a bunch of tanks (although mostly just DPS) but rarely a dedicated healer.
This is probably attributed to the fact that healers rely on their teammates/groupmates for success. I personally have an Imperial Agent healer at 50 but rarely play him because no matter what I heal if people don't do their job we're still going to die.

Anyway, hope that helps.
