I have a Trooper and it's a solid story if you enjoy military type action, It kind of reminds me of a GI Joe type story with your team and the villains you face, over all I very much enjoy the Trooper story this far, I'm almost done with act 2 so I can't speak for act 3.

I just started a Bounty Hunter and so far I am in love with the story, I love the feel of the nobody becoming somebody story, can't wait to play the outcome.

For loots of ppl trooper story is worst story in SWTOR. There are just few (3-4) moments which are interesting but all the rest is just very predictable. When u go Imperial intelligence HQ u see ppl working, computers, holocams etc etc. huge place.. when u go to republic army hq u see General Garza, 1 comuper, 1 desk and secretary..

Few years ago there was great game about troopers - SW Republic Commando, with great storyline..

Maybe if u like USA military u will like trooper storyline otherwise dont play it.

I like it, since it goes well with the background of the trooper.

You are republic military special forces - expect to do some of the following

Matter of taste really. Its not much of a story than series of assigments.

Yes there is some drama and betrayal but basically you're doing what is told unless you go dark side which just gives some twists. You will NOT do much for yourself which is realistic since you are duty bound soldier. Personally, its not bad story just not very exciting one.

Also to me it seems trooper is bit less part of the story. He more solves problems than generates the problems.

The "Dark" Trooper storyline rocks.

I mean, it really rocks!!

That final Senate committee meeting TormDK mentions above, let me just say I laffed until it hurt. Someone at Bioware has a very good (if somewhat disturbing) sense of humor.

I tried to play a "light side" trooper in beta, but I couldn't do it no matter how hard I tried. That may be why some people find the storyline "boring".

Dark Side troopers ... get the job done.

love the class can't say the same for the story. The companions are all very one demential when in comparison the cast of say most force users are varried. In this one all your characters are military personel. So ya not so much variety on that front you do have a couple of interesting characters but that's it a couple. And like people have mentioned your story isn't full of political intrigue or anything it's a series of assignments. Your evil options most of the time are you basically just being a bounty hunter (obsessed with money and calous). Your good options are completely one dimensional. Your just a yes man. There is no John Rambo thing goin on here.

Trooper is very good and solid class, in both (commando, Vanguard) but it's story line really suxx. For developers excuse I can only guess that it's hard to imagine something bright for military... But I really hate all those quests. All area side quests are typical like "we are at war, help us to save something..." And main story quest goes same way. :-( Maybe someone like that but I really like Sith Inquisitor story line where I hunt for artifacts and have a nice choice to backstab and kill some people around.
