I'm so with you right here.

Jen Hale does Renegade Shepard much better. Gives you the creeps sometimes. With the Trooper its somewhat watered down.

I am not sure exactly what is missing. Maybe the impression that my Trooper doesn't get a kick from harassing the lower masses.

I play a dark trooper (dark 4 at 42), I have enjoyed it way more than my dark inq, some of the options do seem a bit needlessly harsh, but for the most part it's just about putting the republic beyond anything else. It's more like a russian commissar than a crazy psychotic. Also having red eyes and red laser beams feels more unique in warzones

Overall im unimpressed with the story, having played a light and dark trooper now the differences are negligable and both vatriants of the storyline after the initial twist at lvl 10 are really dull and boring.

Without M1-4X to cheer me up i'd never have made 50, he is truly awesome and constantly cracks me up, but he's not a patch on Blizz (our mirrors companion) who is just fantastic

I got to say though, the Trooper story, at least what I've seen from it, seems better than the Bounty Hunter story, where (warning major spoilers incoming ) in chapter 1 you hunt some bounties so in chapter 2 you can hunt even more bounties and then in chapter 3 it tops all out when you hunt some bounties.

Level 39 and Dark V. Thanks to Diplomacy and being completely unsympathetic Major Seaward lives up to her rank and name.

1. There is such wild diversity in the game, why play the same class twice so early?
2. The trooper is so boring. SI & BH were so much more delightful to play, especially as dark side. I'm level 48 trooper right now, he is so dull and boring in the conversation responses compared to the classes I beta tested. Though he does give the JK a run for his money..
Why, because my vanguard is 37 and on an low pop server, so I rerolled a toon to play with friends on a higher pop server. So i do love my vanguard, but don't want to lvl a new one to lvl 37. I will just hope for server Xfers at some point. Until then i am playing a Commando alt (now lvl 15 dark I). As my Trooper was male and light side, to make going through the story again i picked a female dark sider this time.

As for variety...I have...

37 vanguard, 18 sentinel, 18 Shadow, 7 Smuggler, 23 Merc, 11 Sniper, 11, juggernaut, 3 Inquis.

So i have tried all the classes to some extent and my fav 2 were Vanguard and Merc...thus i made my reroll a Commando

I think my Dark Commando is much funnier than the light one.

He is mostly trying to find fastest route to beach with beer in my hands and most of time really ignorant big jerk. Maybe he misses few things but at least he got a big gun that mostly compensates the small.. which he can use to blast things which he doesn't care to ponder too much.

Don't shoebox Jennifer Hale! She's great no matter what she's saying.
Time for a nap.
