"Canon" Version of Each Class?

Now, when I say "Canon" I mean to the game of SWTOR, it has no regard to legends content or Disney content.
I also would like to add that each advanced class is playable, but is there a class that is more canonical in nature? I'll give my opinion on the topic.


I'm going to go through each class and give my opinion on what advanced class I believe to be more canonical to the class story (1-50) and expansion content (50-70).

Jedi Knight
Jedi Guardian

Jedi Consular
Jedi Sage

Republic Trooper
Vanguard
Spoiler


Smuggler
Gunslinger

Imperial Agent
Operative

Bounty Hunter
Powertech

BEFORE I GET INTO THE SITH, REALIZE THAT THEY ARE THE MOST AFFECTED BY LIGHT AND DARK CHOICES, WITH THE JEDI CLASSES BEING A CLOSE SECOND.

Sith Inquisitor
Sith Assassin(LS) Sith Sorcerer(DS)
Spoiler


Sith Warrior
Sith Juggernaut (LS) Sith Marauder (DS)
Spoiler


So to recap, the canonical versions IN MY OPINION are the
Jedi Guardian, Jedi Sage, Vanguard, Gunslinger
Operative, Powertech, Sith Sorcerer, Sith Marauder.
Or if you're like me.... (LS Assassin), (LS Juggernaut).

I thought this would be fun to do, as It gives a new dimension to each play through. However, like I said at the beginning, all of the classes are fun and enjoyable to play.

If you guys think there is something I can fix, or if you simply disagree, I want to hear your reasons why!

It is *totally* a matter of opinion. For me, there *isn't* any difference in canonicity.

I think only the Jedi Knight is a canon anything, but the spec is a matter of opinion. Personally, I feel a female character fits the Sentinel spec. So, as a female Jedi knight, I feel the sentinel is canon.

I think the canon character is a mix of both.

Any class can work, for the most part each one has a comparable character from the movies/ tv shows or KOTOR.

Jedi Guardian - Luke, Anakin, Obi-Wan (There's actually basically a spec for each of these characters within the class)
Jedi Sentinel - Ahsoka

Jedi Sage - Yoda
Jedi Shadow - Bastila/ Satele

Vanguard - Like any trooper from the movies
Commando - Jace Malcom (This one is fairly unique and different from movies)

Gungslinger/ Scoundrel - Basically all supposed to be similar to Han, Lando, Chewie, although Tobias Beckett from Solo is like a perfect comparison of a Gunslinger now.

Sith Juggernaut - Vader, Malgus
Sith Marauder - Ventress

Sith Sorcerer - Sidious, Dooku
Sith Assassin - Maul

Powertech - Boba Fett (Why this class uses a pistol is dumb)
Mercenary - Cad Bane, Jango Fett

Sniper/ Operative - This is easily the most distant class from any other content and doesn't have solid comparable
