Concept of each class

The question is : Which image fits the concept/voice-acting of the class?

My own take.

Sith Warrior
Male, Body 3, Human or Sith Pureblood
[The female Sith Warrior voice just does not suit the class, IMO]

Sith Inquitor
Female, Body 1, Human or Twilek (races most likely to be a slave)
Male, Body 2, Zabrak [but only assassin AC]

Bounty Hunter
Male, Body 3, Non-human (to emphasise the outsider aspect)
Female, Body 2, Non-human (to emphasise the outsider aspect)

Imperial Agent
Female/Male, Body 2, Human (or possibly Chiss)

Jedi Knight
Male, Body 2, Human
[The female Jedi Knight voice just does not suit the class, IMO]

Jedi Consular
Female, Body 1 or 2, Any race (but leans toward Mirialan/Miraluka)
[Counterpart to Jedi Knight]

Trooper
Male, Body 3, Any race (but leans toward human)
Female, Body 2 or 3, Any race (but leans toward human)

Smuggler
Male, Body 2, Any race (but leans towards non-humans)
Female, Body 1, Any race (but leans towards non-humans)

I'll post my line-up

Sith Warrior (Juggernaut)
Male Human, body type 2

Bounty Hunter (Mercenary)
Male Zabrak, body type 2

Imperial Agent (Operative)
Female Rattataki, body type 2

Trooper (Vanguard)
Male Human, body type 2

Smuggler (Gunslinger)
Male Twi'lek, body type 2

As you can see I favor body type 2. It's the only one that doesn't look goofy unless you're playing a Commando, then 3 works. If there were a 2.5 though that's what I'd go with.

I often have the impression that body 3 is more suitable for heavy armor tanks. Type 2 is more suitable for light armor tanks and dps.

The way a Force user is attuned to the Force is through Midichlorians. These are microscopic "things" that inhabit every cell in their bodies. So when a Force user loses a body part, they aren't as attuned to the Force as they used to be. Conversely, when they pack on 300 pounds of fat, they pack on 300 pounds of Midichlorians which would make their attunement to the Force that much greater. So any smart Force user would be obese because it makes them more powerful.

Female body type 4 isn't obese but the male one definitely is.

Anyway, I've only played 4 classes for any length of time so far. I think they fit the class and voice actors pretty well:

Female SW - Marauder - Body type 2 Cyborg.

Female JC - Shadow - Body type 1 Human.

Male IA - Sniper - Body type 2 Ratattaki.

Male Trooper Vanguard - Body type 2 Zabrak.

As you might be able to tell, I typically only use male body types 1 & 2 and female body types 1, 2 and 4. Body type 3 just looks ridiculously tall to me, even on males, and male body type 4 is too fat.

I don't know why so many people are saying non-human for BHs, they are based on mandalorians and they become mandalorians during the story. And while mandalorians are not a human-only tribe, the most notorious ones have been human.
