Which Class Stories Coincide with Planet Storylines?

I hear a lot that the Consular/Inquisitors storylines are the "main" stories upon which the planetary stories revolve; That they have more direct impact.

Is this true?

I know on Alderaan the Inquisitor basically decides whether or not House Thul survives or not. And I've heard that the Consular breaks the Empire on Balmorra. But do these classes stories coincide directly with the planetary stories in Chapter 2 onward? For the most part it didn't seem that way in Chapter 1.

What planet storylines coincide with what class stories? Are there any where the trooper story fits better with the planet story? Agent, Knight, etc.? Or is it just Consular/Inquisitor all the way.

What was incredible to me was, in the agent on Corellia, if you listen to Keeper, Lord Razer, and Hunters talk close enough, you hear what's happening in most every other class storyline. You hear about Republic Special Forces Deployment (Trooper), Sith Power Plays (Warrior/Inquisitor), Rift Alliance (Consular), etc. etc. .

I noticed that too, agent is how most ppl figure out class order. It's awesome how just about every class throws SOMETHING in there that relates to another class.
Query: Is there someone that you need killed master?

I find the Inquisitor to be the least connected to the planetary storylines. He/She is really working on his/her own business and never seemed to concerned with Imperial troubles. On the Imperial side at least, it always made the most sense to me that the Bounty Hunter did the planetary quests. The other Imperial classes all have their own important business to deal with. The BH is a gun-for-hire that has just as much incentive to do planetary quests as their class quests: piles of credits.

The Bounty Hunter also has specific mentions to planetary questlines in their class story, at least in chapter 3, where you can directly mention talking to Darth Serevin ("that oddly well-mannered Sith Lord") to your quest giver on Voss and where you meet the last remnants of an operations group in the final mission on Belsavis (their leader asks you if you know something about the Dread Masters' status, if you've already done the quest you can tell them you freed the Masters).
This place has been an empty wasteland for a long time. No longer.

There's a direct tie between the Agent's class quest on Balmorra and the Jedi Consular.

Don't believe me? Just ask Zenith.

The Consular's story fits much closer to most planetary stories.

On Taris, you're fighting a threat to the reconstruction;
On Nar Shaddaa, you're trying to keep the Hutts from throwing the Republic out and throwing in with the Empire;
Tatooine's planetary quest is unique;
On Alderaan, you're working with factions in the war of the houses;
On Balmorra, you're the one who actually liberates the place;
On Quesh.....Yeah.
On Hoth, you're fighting the pirates but your quest isn't that connected here;
On Belsavis, you are there for the Esh-Ka, the big reveal of the planetary quest;
On Voss, you're there primarily to build an alliance with the Voss, literally the same reason for the planetary quest
On Coruscant, you retake the Guardian Holds which allows the resistance to regroup.

So yeah, I would say the Consular story tracks the main storyline pretty well.

So far I would say the Knight kind of does their own thing. Tatooine is the closest I would say has any relevance but only because its similar to the class story in threat level.

God no. The Inquisitor (like the Agent) both have no business even doing the planetary stories for any of the planets. In Act 2/3 it comes to a surprise to the Inquisitior that the Republic and the Empire are fighting again and the response is to use the chaos to the advantage, not to help one succeed. In fact a Moff latter begs you to support the war effort.

The Agent doing the planetary missions also completely clashes with his undercover role.

The Inquisitor fits well with Balmorra (and maybe Belsavis) and I think the Trooper and Corellia work well. Everything else and for all the classes feels very disconnected.
