Best And Worst Class Story?

I've only progressed any length into two. The Imperial Agent, which I finished, is fantastic. One of the best pieces of writing I've seen in a game. Probably the best I've seen in a Star Wars property. It's partially because it's such an unusual angle on the Star Wars setting, I suppose.

The other I've played is the Consular, which really just didn't grab me at all. I'm in the early part of Act 2 on that one, so maybe it picks up? Dunno.

From what I gathered:

Best are Sith Warrior, Bounty Hunter, Agent

Worst are Consular and Inquisitor.

Consular is one of the worst, without ANY question of shadow of doubt.

It's not even about whether I like "that" kind of story or if those "type" of companions are right for me, it's that the story is literally written very very poorly.

Let me give an easy example (without giving anything away): at the start, you eventually get to a point where you must "urgently" do something. Now, the only reason we know it's "urgent" is because someone had to flat out tell us, as opposed to good story telling, that would set up the dialogue, events, and characters in such a way that WE would FEEL that this was urgent, not because someone just said so.

It's all about characterization. There is NONE of it in first part of the consular story, zero. So you have no empathy or emotions, one way or the other, about ANYONE in your story.

Such a simple story device was completely left out and replaced with "cause we said so", it's pathetic.

Everything I have read tells me.

Empire are good to great.

Republic is watching grass grow.

Played up to level 10 of the trooper in beta and I liked it. I'm currently in chapter 1 of the Jedi Knight and I find it alright. Nothing to extravagant but it isn't necessarily bad.

I'd probably like it better if I wasn't constantly being dragged down by the side missions and other quests.

I think my biggest gripe with this game is how you can very easily out-level the side missions. That kind of forces you to pay attention to them and neglect your story. But by doing that, I lose the momentum I gained from following the story and all the feeling that goes with it.

I did not care for the BH story. Never felt like I was actually out hunting bounties.

I dunno, the Consular storyline gets better over time. I loved the Knight storyline. I've played the IA through chapter one, but it was all epic, all the time.

That said, the WORST has got to be the Inquisitor. Chapter one is pretty good. Chapter two just goes... "wha?" Chapter three actively saddened and sickened me. I can't believe it got through quality control. If I wasn't having so much fun with the class itself, I would've laughed at some of the stuff in there (that I'm sure was meant to be taken seriously.)
