I like a standard trilogy, even in tacticals. If I'm heals in a 3 dps group, one of them better take initiative and act tankish, if all 3 are acting a fool, i'll just DPS and self heal. I haven't had this problem though, a lot of pulls in there can easily kill you, if you go too far ahead (everyone else moves slower due to combat and you just get eaten).

Though I normally queue as tank, tank/3 dps kinda sucks cuz every more pulls I have to OOC regen since I'm a go go go tank in there. But If i have a healer, we are almost never out of combat. On my shadow, we eating well.

It doesn't depend on the role you're playing, really, it depends on how good you're playing it. For example, my quickest run through Assault on Tython was done with 2 Tanks and 2 DPS, while my slowest Korriban Incursion was done with 4 DPS (which can be attributed to the fact that 2 of them were Sents and 1 a Vanguard, meaning they stacked all the AoE mobs on top of each other, better yet, on top of my poor Slinger ).
This place has been an empty wasteland for a long time. No longer.

Only thing I can say is, 4 DPS is the better choice for bosses, makes boss fights quicker. A healer will make the trash potion quicker. If we are just looking at the trash part of KDY, then running 3 dps & 1heal is best, followed by 1 tank & 3 dps.
