Maybe it's just me, but the Jedi voice acting is the only think keeping me from playing the characters.

Anyone else having this problem?

I just made characters that "fit" the voices. The sith side voices seem to be more flexible with the looks of the character.

The Consular's voice was so not fitting to my character's appearance that it was funny and I had a hard time taking him seriously.. I got used to it eventually, though.

Jus the male Consulor, really. I got a young-looking Jedi knight, so that works for me.

No offense to the voice artists.
Ooh! In Elder Scrolls Online, I get magic spells and colossal PvP! That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?

Give the Knight a shot. I never had a problem with the male's voice and the story is very well worth your time.

The male Consular, on the other hand, has given me some trouble. I find that if you make an older looking character, maybe with a grayed beard or hair, the voice seems to fit a bit more for that look. That's just me though.

I find the male Consular's voice works nicely with a Type-4 Body as well. Don't ask why, the fat man seems to fit the voice. And like others say, the male Knight voice seems to fit a younger looking character.

It's true, they have nothing on the Sith voices, but, I mean, c'mon, you can't beat evil British voices.

My Sages voice is terribad!

I wound up going with one of the blind races so it looks like he has shades on so I picture him as being Neo in the Matrix with that combination. But yet he is balding and gray. He must have been discovered at WAY too old of an age.

Well it doesn't help that honestly the male consular is pretty terrible sounding, the female consular is a little bit better but that's my own opinion.

As for the knight, David Hayter does a pretty good job with the male knights voice and is personally to me better then the female knight, although she isn't bad either.

Of course part of it is also that the voices just don't match some races, like for me, Zabrak just don't match a knight of either gender at ALL and miralukan are a on some classes too.
