Do them all.

I have played the first 10 levels of each proffession during beta and the storylines for each are awesome. I really liked the gritty storyline for the bounty hunter. I felt like a space cowboy.

The agent story is awesome.

I don't know about the other classes but I can confirm that Bounty Hunter is a tonne of fun.

Play Imperial Agent. There's a huge shortage of them, and they're actually a really cool class even if their name doesn't sound as exciting as something with Sith in it.

Picking a class is up to you, if you are a healer get a healer, if you like ranged get ranged. If you like melee attacking get that, no one knows what your favorite play style is.

If other people read this and are just starting out, I'd recommend reading up on some threads to brush up your knowledge of SWTOR. There are some little things that you can find out that will help you out tons.

Ok, since your asking, the best advice to give you on choosing a class in this game is to look at the advanced classes of each class.

If you are interested in the Imperial Agent, but hate the idea of the cover system, that may not mean you're X'd out of the class, as not all of the advanced classes use it extensively. With the agent, you're looking at one of your adv classes having two trees of melee stealth and one of healing; while the other adv class has three specializations of ranged dps, one or two of which are heavily focused on the cover system.

As for the bounty hunter, you have an adv class of healing and two mid-range dps specs, while the other adv class uses a gun but plays almost like a melee class.

The lightsaber classes also pan out a bit, so your best interest is to research the adv class options of the base class that peaks your interest the most.

Wrong, do not play an Operative, especially a healing one. There is a reason why no one really plays em, every other class is 10x better. The devs hate this class with a passion.

Case in point, three broken talents in med tree alone that will never get fixed.

Roll anything but an Agent, you have been warned.
