If you want to play a rogue then go marauder, its is almost identical only no stealth.

Marauder is nothing like a rogue, they are like medium armor fury warriors.

-Fury/Rage Mechanic
-No Stealth
-Only similarity is Dual-Wield

Operative is the closest port to a rogue you can possibly get.

-Backstabs/Positional Attacks
-Very Reliant on Stealth Openers for Burst

Assassin is like a Light Armored Death Knight with Stealth

-Dark Charge/Lightning Charge/Surging Charge
(Blood Presence, Frost Presence, Unholy Presence)
-Force Pull (Death Grip)
-Can tank and dps
-Melee and Ranged Abilities
-Low Reliance on Stealth for Survival

On a further note, everyone and their mother are rolling Sith Sorcerers and Assassins. Therefore, if you want the class that most plays like a rogue and don't like thousands of other people having the same class as you, go with operative. Good Luck, Have Fun
