I think it all depends on what your character appearance is. My BH looks like a skinny pale snake-like guy so the voice fits him quite well.

LS Agent story is amazing.
LS Warrior story <3
DS Knight story <3
DS/LS Inq story is bad.
DS/LS Consular story is bad.
DS/LS BH the story is fine.
DS/LS Trooper story is ok, but can be very mind-numbing at times.
As for smugglers...I stopped playing at level 20, too friggin DULL.

I have four 50s, five if you count the one I deleted: Trooper, smuggler, inquisitor, agent, warrior (deleted because I ****ed up his story and I never finished his Act III). I also have a Knight at L40 and a Sage at L33. I got a Bounty Hunter to L30-ish but deleted him because I didn't like how I made him look (I actually did this twice and have rerolled a third one which is at level 23 right now.).

First off, the trooper and inquisitor storyline give me no wish to replay them at all. The trooper story after Act I was just dull and any threat was pretty far off and disconnected from your job - there wasn't even a real antagonist besides 'the empire'. I played it lightside the first time, and the idea of playing it darkside actually makes me cringe because no amount of twists from going darkside could make it more interesting.

Insofar as the Inquisitor goes, I've heard that the lightside story really sucks and makes almost no sense, and the darkside one wasn't that great either - it had a great ending and a whole lot of Crowning Moments of Bad_ss, but that's about it for its redeeming qualities.

The smuggler storyline, which I did lightside, was interesting enough to, well, keep me interested, though the Act III plot twist ticked me off. I'd like to go through it again as a darkside smuggler, but I'm not sure the story by itself could keep me interested because it was pretty 'meh' - average as these things go.

The Agent and Warrior storylines, on the other hand, were fantastic (with the Agent by far being the best on in the game thus far - I don't think anything in this game could possibly outdo the end of the Agent's Act I.); I'd love to go through an Agent again with a darkside twist. That one twist actually changes a whole lot of how you experience the story and is really freaking awesome, and your character is incredibly differently portrayed from there on out.

For the Warrior, I made a mistake here: I went darkside up to Tatooine, but a cutscene managed to convince me to change (slowly) to lightside. I decided that I didn't like this very much and ended up deleting the character. The story, though, is great: your actions matter, and if you play it right there are a whole lot of Crowning Moments of Bad_ss. The most memorable moment for me is where, if you do some maneuvering and settle for some lightside points on Nar Shaddaa, you totally out-maneuver your enemy in a style true to a sense of classic, ruthless Sith cunning. This is definitely a story worth playing through lightside and darkside.

The Sage story is boring as hell. Really boring. I haven't finished Act I, though, so for all I know it gets better. It's also notable that this is my third Sage reroll because I didn't like the way the character looked.

The Knight storyline is interesting-ish (this is my third Knight reroll, which I've decided to stick with) and has a lot of differences, from what I can tell, if you replay it darkside versus lightside. It's pretty freakin' cool. Worth replaying.

The Bounty Hunter storyline so far seems very interesting, but I never finished Act I so I never actually saw the full thing. It's got this great attitude where you're this freelancing, greedy bad_ss who can pretty much get away with anything - if I wasn't on my third iteration it would be almost sickeningly fun to play.

In a level of fun-to-tedious, I'd say it's:
Tier 1 ('Great' to 'Blew me away, amazing in every way'): Agent, warrior, bounty hunter, knight with the Agent coming out on top by far

Tier 2 ('Captured my attention' to 'above the par"): Smuggler, inquisitor

Tier 3 ('worth playing through' to 'not all that bad'): Trooper, Sage

Edit: Some people said that the Agent story was the most boring and implied that it had a really small scope. This is really confusing to me, because the Agent story is by far the most epic-in-scope story in the entire game - it makes the Knight and Warrior stories seem like nothing they did was a big deal (and I know what the endings are for both of those.).

The Agent story is one of those very few things where I left it inspired and hoping that I could write something with that kind of quality, and I'm the guy who went through the Trooper storyline thinking about how much better I could've done it (I'm not the best director, so I might not be able to do it better, but at least my imagination has a vision with potential that far outweighs what we actually got.). I also think Inception is a 'meh' movie because I am an incredible critic.

Edit #2: I'm the guildmaster of a Republic guild, and I just said the Imperial stories were essentially all better than the Republic ones. This is a great way to get recruits. XD

I played all the stories except jedi consular, some stories I even played twice. Here is my list from best to worst:
Imperial Agent(I enjoyed it lightside)
Jedi Knight(I really enjoyed it darkside)
Sith warrior(Both DS/LS work well)
Bounty hunter(DS/LS both work)
Sith Inquisitor(DS is hilariously fun to play story wise)
Trooper(Is tied with smuggler for best companion make up but the story is lacking. Play DS female if you wanna be femshep though :P)
Smuggler(As long as you don't have high expectations this story will work for you.)

Having played all 8 classes, I can say that Imperial Agent story was the one and only story that made me skip other missions on planets and complete my class missions first. I just needed to know more! I had to find out what was going to happen next. It was awesome.

Bounty Hunter was awesome too. The ending was excellent and as I was light sided, I was very happy to be able to choose what to do and who to kill at the end.

Both Sith Warrior and Inquisitor were good. They were all about the power games within the Sith hierarchy; which was more than fine for me.

Jedi Knight was the best story line on the Republic side and the ending was exceptional. I also liked the Smuggler story line. Consular was "meh"; not good but not bad either. But Trooper was hand down the worst one. It was perfect until the end of Chapter 1 but then it became incredibly dull.

This pissed me off too. Why do they force us to play this way? Plot twists are terrible, and the Smuggler plot twist is poorly executed because they never ever let us query the situation.
I loved playing the Smuggler story up to this point. After this point I cringed my way through it because it was like bile in my mouth.

Sith Warrior is perhaps my favourite storyline so far though . I play LS and it's really fun. There are parts of it where I would prefer it slightly different, but at least I can develop a unique personality for my Warrior with what I have which I how I like to play my Bioware games .

Worst story for me is Imperial Agent. Because it's so boring. I just can't get through Dromund Kaas on an IA at all, I hate being a Sith Lords *****. It's the reason I can't play Inquisitor.
