Some sort of Spoilers about Jedi Knight/Sith Inq story below.
I have a huge issue how TOR's stories are almost always about suitcases, not about people and character development. You are always off to planet Herp to secure either Imperial Superweapon or Ancient Mystery Cube. You do this ad nausea.

Sith Empire is holding a dangerous proto type weapon. We must either seize or destroy it!
HOW MANY TIMES is this structure repeated during Jedi Knight story?? Seriously. It stopped being fun long ago.
Sith Inq suffers from same BS, just replace super weapon with Ancient Mystery Cube.

Sometimes there is brief blib of light in form of something interesting happening between you and your companion. These never last long or keep you occupied for relevant lengths of time tho.

Sith War story really stands out in this regard. It gives proper emphasis to PEOPLE, as opposed to mystery cubes or weapons.

Sith Inquisitor = 9
I think the interaction with the companions (Ship's intercom!) and a true look into Sith culture (along with the finale, which was amazing) won this over as the best of the four I have done. If you don't like Chapter 1, keep going, it gets better! NPCs were very interesting. The building of a powerbase like a true Sith politician is priceless!

Jedi Knight = 8
Everything you could expect from a Jedi Knight. Epic (and sometimes exaggerated) plots with twists and turns. Nothing SUPER special, but nothing glaringly wrong. Some nice little details in there that really get me thinking about the SW universe. True Jedi fans will not be disappointed!

Smuggler = 7
One mission made the whole storyline worth it. Won't spoil it, but you'll know it when you do it. Pretty good with the underworld part of it, not too fond of 2nd chapter, but not bad. End was good! Good interaction between your character and NPCs. I love how characters that you met before come back later!

Sith Warrior = 6
The obsession with your master gets old. True, you're a BA, but still. Bigger and better things could have been done, IMO. But then again, people come back to help/hurt you, which is always nice. I like to see the consequences of your actions, and the SW story has a lot of that. One thing I will say, Quinn = best companion ever! XD

Sith inquisitor lvl 50 finished story 8.5/10

Was my first toon. Story is great, especially for act 1. Act 2 is boring and will only get you to act 3.
Act 3 is great cuz you get to kick the nuts of a self entitled sith lord
The story is all about power play and learning the misteries of the dark side. If you are the sidious type, go for it.
Play dark side for best experience. I played female and enjoyed it. I think the SI story fits a female dark side.

Act 1: 9.5/10
Act 2: 7/10
Act 3: 8.75/10

Sith Warrior lvl 50 story is finished 8.75/10

2nd toon. (Actually I rolled 2 SW, still have to finish the 2nd one)
Great story. It is very different from the SI. Your master is more of the SI type and will manipulate you throughout the game. You are super powerful and sort of a brute.
Played dark side and it was great. Played male on lvl 50 and female on the other one. If you want to romance your companions, male is the best by far.
I have been told that light side is cool as well but im sure that for swtor, it is best to stick with your faction alignment (at least for jedi/sith)

Act 1: 8.75/10
Act 2: 8/10
Act 3: 9/10

I would say it is a little better than SI but it depends on your preferences.

Jedi knight lvl 50 finished act 3. 9.75

I think the best story so far. Very heroic. Took me 4 days to complete the quests. Act 1 is a little boring, but it has the best Act 2 and Act 3. Basically this is KOTOR 3 (with less choices and less profound).
I played female because I cant stand the male voice. Female would be even better if we have same sex relationship. I want to kiss Kira .
Play light side for best experience

The ending is epic.

Act 1: 6.5/10
Act 2: 9.5/10
Act 3: 9.99/10

Jedi Consular lvl 50 finished act 3. 8.25

The jedi consular story is not that bad on the first planet, but it gets really boring really fast.
I first rolled my jedi consular right after my SI and stopped at lvl 30 because I could not stand the boring story.
After completing the SW and JK, I decided to give it a chance. I finished alderaan and then I was hooked. Great story starting at alderaan. I would not say that the 2 last act were as good as JK or SW but somewhat close. I found it was a good experience.
I played female light side as I could not stand the male voice.
I started the story dark side and I would not advice it to anyone: the dark side choices just... dont make sence. And also, it does not make sense to stand before the jedi counsil when you are obviously dark side with the face and all. Also, I think the jedi would be able to tell that you are doing evil deeds or not.
(DONT PLAY DARK SIDE) play this one only as an alt.

I really felt like a jedi for act 2 and 3. Trying to solve problems with diplomacy. Protecting people with the force.
Really felt like a jedi master.

Act 1: 1.25/10
Act 2: 7.75/10
Act 3: 9.25/10

sith Inquisitor 10/10

Darth zash is hands down my favorite character of any character arcs. and i really really liked all of the chapters they were all amazing.

Sith Warrior so far 8/10 it has some cool gimicks and the story certainly has moments. but Baras and him forcing you to basically cut off your noise to spite your face really ruins it for me
the rest i haven't done enough to judge yet.

Jedi Consular: 7/10.
You really feel as if the entire Jedi Order depends on you. You also grow very well in your roll. Personally, i didnt really like chapter 2, the higher-ups just say 'help these people' and that was it, but it was a nice build-up to chapter 3.

Smuggler: 6/10.
The prologue was great, you felt a real smuggler who had gotten himself in a situation. After that, the 'smuggler feeling' disappeared very fast and the story wasnt great. Fortunately your dialogue options and personality as a smuggler make up for that.

Imperial Agent: 9/10.
Absolutely great. Personality, immersion, story; it was all there! The story kept me exciting all the time.

Sith Inquisitor: 8/10.
What really surprised me here was how connected I felt to my character. You're a Sith and you think, seemingly, only about getting more powerful, but the idea that you can rise from slave to a powerful Darth really appealed me.

I plan to do all class stories and im now doing the trooper. Looks pretty OK so far, but im only lvl 16, so I cant say much about it yet.
