Which force using class has best story ?

I basically want to play a Force using class with a best all around story. From reading beta forums I gathered that:

-Inquisitor has great story at start but it falls apart later
-Warrior story is just average.
-Consular has most boring story of all classes
-Knights story is average but has best ending

Is that correct ? Any help would be appreciated, preferably without spoilers.

Peoples opinions on story in this game seems to be varied. I played an Inquisitor on Beta I will be honest I loved it, even the side quests. That said, I levelled with 3 other people, a fellow Inquisi (he went assassin i was Sorceror) an Imperial Agent and a Bounty Hunter respectively. The stories all lead to the same areas and playing alongside seeing their stories was amazing, they all sort of tied together in some way.

I have to say I only played to level 20 over the 3 days of Beta, we took our time, enjoyed ourselves. I loved the story it was gripping and I just wanted to find out what happened next, where the story would take me. Without any spoilers I probably chose a different planet for Chapter 1 to start with than others may have, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. I also played full Dark side. I never even tried a Republic side character.

I have played the Inquisitor to 32 on beta and it kept getting better. Not sure after that. I played other classes to 20 or so but their stories were not near as good to me as the Inquisitor.

Well, as Supa Sheep said, its going to vary greatly by personal opinion. Your best bet would be to just play them all!

To me, the Sith Inq Assassin was doing pretty well as light-side. Jedi Knight was kind of boring. Consular was more entertaining as dark. And the Sith jugger was decent to follow. I know, not much information or expanded detail, but you don't want spoilers, and my opinion is worth as much as the next guy.

You will have to develop your own opinion, by just playing

Then let me know so I can return to the forum.

I've played Inq to lvl 50 and loved it. Around lvl 30 I started to get bored and went to the BH class, played it for a while then came back to my Inq and powered through the rest. When I got to lvl 40 on my Inq it renew my push to see the rest of the story.

But again around lvl 30 for Inq I started to lose interest.

The Sith Inquisitor story starts off slightly, and let me stress slightly, slow. If you can hang in there though, you are well rewarded with what is easily one of the best star wars stories to have ever been concieved. At least I thought so. Having played it up to level 46, I never really got bored of it.

Thanks for answers so far. Looks like everyone played Sith Inquisitor at some point. I'm gravitating towards Consular right now, hope a story isn't as boring as everyone says, when spiced with dark side choices.

JK def feels the most ''iconic'' imo. You can model your char after different Jedi, like Anakin, Obi, Mace, Luke, etc. Ending is the best out of all also, imo.

"Best story" is purely subjective, it's impossible to tell you which one you'll like and which you won't.

Are you a conqueror? Warrior
Are you into politics and subterfuge? Inquisitor
Do you like to save the day? Knight
Do you like mystery novels? Consular

That's what I gathered from my limited time in the beta tests.
