Favorite planet storyline?

I haven't finished Corellia yet on Republic side but almost there. Either way it wins my vote mostly because the quests were very well laid out in a nice linear way that you aren't wasting time travelling back and forth like almost all the other planets. The Imperial ending was also a great scene which, I think, mimics the movie endings well.

From purely a storyline sense, competing against Thana on Taris was my favorite Imperial side. I skipped a lot on Republic side first time through so Corellia still would be it.

Honorary mention is the Dreadmasters storyline on Imperial side Belsavis. "We cannot be contained," just makes me laugh every time.

I personally hate Voss, mostly because majority of the quests are a grind and even getting places is a grind. (It probably doesn't help either that the environment reminds me too much of WoW :P)

Empire side Belsavis in my opinion. Or Ilum...

Runners-up: I find Voss enchanting in its own right, on either side. I love Republic Taris - I know a lot of people dislike the planet, but I love it for the KOTOR nostalgia-fest. Republic Tatooine because Gayem Leksende has that weird androgynous appeal I can't take my eyes off of, and listening to him monologue is just fun.
I don't think the Gayem Leksende one on Tatooine is the bonus series, (I recall it being more of doing this mission for that guy, and that mission for this guy) but that quest line is my favourite on Tatooine. I love his villainy and his one liners, marvelous, i dont know what you said, but marvelous and I found the series fun. Too bad I couldn't tap that, despite his evilness I would have totally loved a ftb with him.

Favorite planet stories:

(1) Imperial-side Belsavis. The freeing of the Dread Masters is pretty epic. My bounty hunter insulted the crap out of them, was force-choked, and then told how impressive she was. My Sith warrior, on the other hand, aided the Masters in driving the poor Republic warden insane enough he killed his own troops. Either LS or DS, the quest line is incredible and I look forward to seeing what Bioware does with the batcrap crazy Dread Masters in future updates to the game.

(2) Imperial-side Taris. I really disliked Thana Vesh and never fail to kill her at the end of the planet story line. That, and completely destroying the same spaceport my smuggler had helped preserve earlier in the game, ended up being pretty amazing.

(3) Republic-side Correllia. There's just something spectacular about truly defeating the bad guys and running them off the planet, hehe.

Too bad Repub side Corellia has those bugged bonus missions that only give 1 commendation each. Otherwise, all the stories there are good.

For me it's got to be Imperial Taris. Just the whole Thana Vesh thing kept me hooked - Republic Taris was a bit of a chore, one of those feelings you get when a planet just.won't.end. Imperial Taris on the other hand was a delight.

Republic side I'd have to say it's a toss up between Tython and Hoth. Tython was pretty trpical but welcome nonetheless, but I really liked the part on Hoth where you

I enjoyed being on Korriban and Drommund Kass. Now I know those two planets doesn't have a story line, but the dark side atmosphere on those planets was just plain awesome. I really hope we'll see more story being developted for those two planets, especially Korriban.

Imp Hoth and Imp Tat were my faves
Least favorite was Nar Shadda, story was ok but the planet itself is horrible.
