Of all the planets I dislike Taris the most on either faction. It's a mouse in a maze feeling. It feels a little better/open on the republic side, not sure why. It may be the day/night time difference between the two, who knows.

I honestly didn't like the size of the planet and the lack of a vehicle throughout most of my leveling the first time I played through it (Smuggler). I also agree that the quests made your run all over the place and could have been organized better.

That being said, I understand that the random paths, cliffs, dead ends, etc are part of the overall feel. Taris is a jungle environment which is difficult to navigate to begin with, then complicated by planet wide ruins. I love the planet story, but most of all, the background music is some of my favorite in the entire game. It gives you that eerie feeling of walking trough a massive grave yard with danger lurking in every corner.

I found that overall I really enjoy Taris both pub and imp side. The only problem I have is that some of the missions seem way, way out of the way and would like to see perhaps a second obtainable mission or two in those areas so it doesn't feel like such a pain. However overall I really enjoy the story.

Taris. I hate that place. I have hated it since I arrived the first time and had to go to one place from another. I get the vision the designers must have had, but it's just a thoroughly unfun place to have to do anything in. I did like the quests, though - the story in them. So that helps.
I didn't find it nearly as bad on republic side, despite having to run everywhere. But I only did Taris once as republic and that was a long time ago, so I don't really remember a lot of it. I just remember being surprised that it wasn't as bad as on empire side.

Worst planet, hands down
if you want HK-51 as companion, you have to return on Taris
It's not so terrible for me the planet, it reminds me Kotor, old history, I love walking round this wild planet, but it's not the best for me.

Personally I despise this planet. I had taken a 6 month break from the game(left prior to F2P) and recently came back to try it out when they shut down City of Heroes. Before I had only played Jedi/Sith so I decided to roll a couple new classes and was really enjoying my trooper and sentinel/guardian. Before I had only played Sage and Shadow so wanted to try Jedi Knight out as well.

Got to Taris the other night with my Trooper and I had honestly forgot about how god awful this planet is, especially as an early planet in the game. Everything is so spread out and honestly the Rakghouls get old by about the 5th bonus mission involving killing them. The nostalgic nods to KOTOR aren't too bad, but this planet just drags on for me. To me Hoth and Tatooine both felt a lot bigger than Taris but seem to go by in 1/3 of the time. Taris honestly makes me never want to roll another toon Republic side and now I'm less excited about my Jedi Guardian who is just about ready to finish up Coruscant. Haven't played it Imp side yet, but I'm sure it can't be much better.

I dont like this planet. However it has the best planet questline of them all. Only Voss comes close. Very few planets do we realy get some background story and learn more of the planet. Most times itīs just the very recent history we get to know. Itīs ok but if we only know the recent history and get allmost no background history it gets kinda shallow imo. Thatīs why i love the Taris planet questline, but i still dont like the planet Taris.
