Are all the classes have very basic class quests?

I'm a lvl 43 Jedi Guardian and I must say that the jedi knight story is fun, but pretty repetitive and basic. Being a tank it seems like every class quest what I do is go into a base, plow through a ton of people, kill the elite or boss, and complete the objective. I love the game and the combat is great, but it gets kind of old. Is this always the case? I'm going to start the imperial agent when 1.2 comes out, is that any good?

Wrong forum.

All the quests are the same deal for every class. Kinda disappointing. Not sure how long it will keep me entertained. :/

It's a quest...what did you want your character to do?

Bioware added story, they didn't radically change everything. You are still completing quests, but you have a reason for WHY you are doing it.

For example, in <insert name of other MMO here>, you get a quest to kill 10 NPCs. There's probably a paragraph of text, that virtually no one reads.

In SWOtR, you still have the quest to kill 10 NPCs, but you know that the NPCs are members of some terrorist organization that is trying to destroy your civilization by cornering the market on tapioca pudding. And therefore, if the voice acting/story tellling/cinematics were done well, you become emotionally invested in stopping the evil tapioca terrorists.

The reason "why" is all that was added, and Bioware never claimed anything different.

OP: I haven't completed the Jedi Knight story, but I've heard it was supposed to be one of the best. IA is also supposed to be the best...though I doubt they are similar. I've done the BH, SI, & Smuggler quests, and my IA is almost done with Hoth. I'd say the SI was the best, then IA then Smuggler, then BH.

The agent story starts kinda slow but around the end of Chapter 1 and into Chapter 2 it gets really really good. Most people consider the agent to be the best story in the game. The knight is probably #2 though, as it's basically KOTOR 3.

Far as the mechanics go, yes questing is very simplistic for everyone. Find this object, deliver that object, kill this boss. If the combat isn't engaging to you, you might try a different class but the setups are all the same.
