Well first of, this thread may need spoiler tags, but onto the story for my JC.
Spoiler

The 1 main thing I want to see in the class stories is something personal towards it, the return of an arch nemesis that you fought in Act I, II or III would be nice.

That would be quite interesting, only problem is we are more than 3600 years before that time, they could possibly make a small reference towards it, but I doubt there will be any detailed references towards the movies.

Another thing they should do in the far future is focus on the emporer. Maybe as part of the 2-3rd expansion, you get to see the real emporer. And it should be for every class unlike the
Spoiler

AAAND ofcourse, the 1 thing they should continue as a story, Revan. They should make a pub FP where you fight with Revan.
Spoiler

Well, if I wanted to, I could write books on what I want the class story to be like (I had planned to make my own JC story, but I didn't want a canon paradox, so I may wait for the first expansion and make my own mini story bridging the gap between act II and future act IV. I just hope BioWare lives up to my expectations, so far I've enjoyed almost all their stories in their games (almost all, but nobody can get it perfect! ).
Only problem is, I forsee a lot of people will think high expectations, and not all of them will be fufilled, so I wont be angry if none of the stuff i listed above happens, who knows, I may like it more!

ok here goes, It starts after act 3 and ilium.

The Republic is pushing the Empire back on all fronts due to the aggressive strategy put forward by the new Chancellor. The Empire is resorting to scorched earth in order to slow done the Republic and give them time to bring in fresh Alien troops to fortress worlds, such as Duro.

Meanwhile the Republic is focusing on the Core and Inner rim, The Empire establishes a secret base on Byss and the then lunches a devastating assault on Tython destroying the jedi Temple and the ecosphere, ie turns in to a dust bowl.

Master Shan disappears, and when Garza wants to Strike back against Byss, will leaving the rim vulnerable, the Chancellor tries to have her removed. Garza then arrests the senate and the Republic falls into civil war.

Act 3 is the Empire consolidating it's positions,

While the Republic class capture Garza and prepare to fight the Sith Empire,

The bounty hunter and the imperial agent IMO need the most expansion.

What happens to the bounty hunter after you

Spoiler
?

Maybe the empire turns on you and you have to work for the republic? Maybe it's like tue smuggler and you're left high and dry and are out for revenge? Maybe you encounter revan and serve him like canderous/mandolore did in KOTOR 2?

Or the imperial agent. You

Spoiler
so maybe after act 3 someone, somehow catches onto you, remembers you or discovers you and threatens your whole operation? Maybe you are caught and experimented on or tortured by a sith lord or rival agent? Maybe the empire gives you a burn notice? These two classes have the moat room for expansion in my personal opinion.

Well based on what we know from overall class stories:

1) Taris was once in resettlement by the Republic, but after Saresh became Chancellor, the Sith Empire took Taris
2) Corellia was reconquered by the Republic
3) Plan Zero, Darth Angral's personal vendetta against the Jedi, etc. broke the Treaty of Coruscant
4) The Emperor was believed to be "dead" and is really in hiding to be reborn; the Sith Empire is therefore vengeful and ready to counterattack
5) Revan disappears again
6) There are some Sith betraying their Empire
7) As much as the Sith idolize their Emperor, they fear him.

So I'm thinking overall for the class stories, Acts IV, V and VI show how each class (class story, flashpoint) converges paths with the other classes of both sides. Act IV and V should portray how they fight each other, but V should show a hint of how they understand each other and their side more. Act VI should show how they unite sides since Sith are leaving their Empire and how both sides fight the Sith Emperor (The ending of Act VI should show how the Second Great Galactic War ends; Revan should also have a return and a major role in fighting the Sith Emperor) (The canonical ending for the Second Great Galactic War should be in a novel)
