If TOR had the ability to make a custom companion that would be one of your alts, I know I'd have on the republic side my sage and my imperial side would be my sorc. Mainly so I could have a force using healer.

What would you pick and why?

My smuggler. So I could use his group stealth to stealth my non-stealth Jugg

My Juggernaut, not because she's tank (I'm crap at using tank companions), but because she'd make rude and suggestive comments to everyone one we meet and they wouldn't be able to do thing, but she's not ultra-murder crazy like Kaliyo.

Oh wait, she's a lot like Kaliyo o.O

My Agent would make a good healer, but I think he would also spend a little too much of his downtime spending the Crew Mission money on fine dining and using his Super Cipher Seduction powers on cute male quest givers. Nothing would get done.

I think my Sorc would probably be the best. She's a healer, likes reading and being quiet and meditating... I'm sure she's planning something or maybe she just seems quiet next to my Juggernaut...

My Sorc, since she's a force healer and the only companion healers are tech based (smuggler / operative clones basically).

My thoughts exactly. Although some of the other answers had me think a bit. Like the one about stealthy juggs. I thought put a sorc on that jugg and the jugg wouldn't need to stealth. Jugg would just plow through and when something hit him, the Jugg would just go, "What was that? It tickled."

But the one about the remarks the comp would say, now that's an interesting aspect. The attitudes of the alts also passing through. So if you played dark side, the comp would have a dark side attitude. And if that also worked, I might have to change my answer to the smart alec smuggler.

I would love it, Guild Wars had it and was well worth my money. My commando healer to replace Elara. I would use a force healer for my Jedi companions.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic anyday

Let me first say that would be an AWESOME feature to the game!

I'd probably have my Merc as my main and my Sniper as a companion. I love having HK for a companion but my sniper would be a nice substitute.

Yep. The inspiration for my posting this was GW along with a little bit of others out there. The mercenary thing in the first GW was so nice that all my characters used them for the teams. GW did it to a point though that I didn't need (nor want) to team with anyone really because they were not as good as my alts. Might be the people I teamed with sucked or the alts were just that good. Jury still out.

For my Sentinel, a healing Sage
For my Jugg/Marauder, a healing Sorc
For my Sniper, a healing Operative
For my Mercenary, a tank Powertech
For my Vanguard, a healing Commando

I choose these not only because the class skills compliment each other, but I feel like it makes the most sense story wise. Would be VERY cool if Bioware implemented something like this. I'd have to create even more alts!!!
Roswin - 50 Jedi Sentinel | Vaelin - 50 Sith Juggernaut | Kordis - 50 Sith Marauder | Vaelis - 50 Sith Assassin | Tylus - 50 Sniper
| Vint - 43 Mercenary | Kiden - 35 Vangaurd | Skavic - 22 Jedi Sage |
