Saying it is rubbish is an overstatement, but damage output is undeniably inferior to most classes. Nevertheless, the class survives longer in 4 DPS SR than any SW/JK or VG/PT and their skill rotation can provide an unpleasant burst at a critical moment.

And that is the point: you yourself claim that defence is good. The class also has mobility, ranged attack and self-heal with Phase Walk and Force Barrier. Do you really expect them to be on par with melee DPS in terms of damage? What good a melee would be then?

It is not about sage DPS underperforming. The problem is that other ranged classes are overperforming. PVP/PVE balance could be easily resolved if passive damage increase was among the utilities, so every PVPer had to choose between damage output or mobility/defence/self-heal, not having all of those as opposed to melee.
