Thana Vesh as a companion

Thana Vesh should be a Universal companion for all Empire Players! She's a great compliment to the story and would work for all the classes IMO. Light or Dark, she would just submit to you ...would also make a nice romance option.
(Yes I know, this causes problem for republic players, as they want in on the pie too...but oh well).

For the naysayers...
She has a great character actually
-She plays hard to get and this only adds depth to her
-You should realize she actually listens to you (She does whatever Light/Dark side choices you want). She never outwardly tries to kill you or anything, she's just got a bit of an inferiority complex
-Shes actually a born-to-be-sith (sure you can turn the Sith Warrior companion evil but Ive heard that shes lame. Plus Sith Inquis, we can't really change anyone to dark side)
-She comes off arrogant, slightly one dimensional - but as the story progresses - you realize she's actually just an insecure sith. Pride & Insecurity go together you know
-Yeah you can choose to kill her or save her, that is a problem - I'm sure the quest chain can be retconned for people who want her as a companion or something
-The voice acting is essentially in the game already

Specifically due to my main being a Sith Inquisitor
-As a class inspired by palpatine, our inability to twist/turn someone to the darkside (ala anakin) is pretty disappointing. Especially because our character is constantly asking for his/her hand to be held by smarter people for guidance in the story.
-I'll just take Thana over Ashara, thanks.

Anyways, as a sith inquisitor - I feel robbed by my story in general. I'm at 45 and I've read the end story spoilers and it's still just a yawn for me. The companions suck, especially as a male. We get a buncha randoms including a mute dashade who just wants to eat as our first our only romance-able companion is a barbie Jedi who can't truly fall to the dark side. I don't think I'm the only Sith inquisitor player who thinks our story is just mediocre.
EDIT: after finishing the game and rolling an Agent alt, my impressions are the same, Sith Inquis story is lacking.

Even though I killed her, the lack of strong characters in Jaesa and Vette annoys me to no end. That, and the voice acting for Jaesa makes me want to ignore her.

So, signed.

The only companions I liked in this game were Vette and Blizz. The others were either boring, or annoying (especially Quinn and the robot).

A shame you can't romance Thana Vesh.

Agreed, wish I could have her and didn't kill her for dark side points.

I did love her... but it got to the point where she and I were just one-upping each other on who could be the bigger jerk.

... Though I do wish I got her over Vette. Dark side Jaesa is too wonderful.

Maybe. With an option to change her somehow.
It would be boring to have an only-evil companion. Even Khem Val has some sort of moral code, I doubt she would.

I tend to agree. The storyline starts out as a rivalry, and you realize from the start that it will come to blows... but it need not END. Her character development is precious, and her strength could be molded by someone strong enough to hold the leash.

I realize that there is a lot of hard-wiring related to which companions are in the mix for each character type, but I see no reason why we couldn't (at some point) choose to give up one in favor of an alternate as well-developed as Thana.

You should totally get to choose between the ex-Jedi chick and Thana, in fact the way my story was unfolding I was sure this was what was going to happen, there should be an option for light side Empire to get the Jedi and dark side Empire to get Thana - it just makes sense to me.

I found her pretty annoying, and I had my IA flirt with her mercilessly in a roundabout way to make fun of her. It made the character more enjoyable as her responses were hilarious and petty (especially on the heels of situations where she'd clearly failed, or got captured).

I want her as a romanceable companion. I spared her life in Taris in that purpose. I really like that option, since I can't romance the LS Jaesa.

I already made a thread but it went unnoticed. I subscribe to this one then.
