I played BH, SW, Inquisitor, JK, consular and agent 9still in chapter 1). My least favorite is BH comp. Skadsh. Extremely boring, and weak.

Quinn is good for the right situations. He's great when you're fighting a tough boss battle.

You do know Kira is a pure dps companion and not a tank companion right.

Well I've played the JK, Trooper and IA.

Companions who were worthless:
Trooper: M14X, Yunn and Tanno Vik. And after I got Doorne, all became worthless because I was a Vanguard.
IA: Vector, Lokin, Raina
JK: T7, Rousk, Scourge.

Veeroa Denz. Can't heal. Level 48 and she can't keep me alive in the Eternal Championship. Even Theron at level 20 could do that.

as a female agent, didn't particularly like the options she had. I mean, Vector's personality was good, but, at the end of the day, he was still....a bug. And then Theron Shan? Sleeping with the enemy? And SIS to boot. After her stint during the story-line - blah. Now, if they made a keepable companion <not just a 1 night stand type of companion> that was Chiss.....that would be her keepable LI, pure and simple. As far as Kaliyo went, it was fun to go all mayhem and destruction on Zakuul .... BUT, in the vanilla story, question as far as why in the world Keeper would assign them to work together in the first place. When my agent started out, she was a gungho imperialist. Whenever she made a pro-imperial comment, she would get disapproval from Kaliyo. My agent would have shot her between the eyes for that. ;

For my smuggler, one of the best things I liked about him was having Guss make all those comical statements at various times. Too bad he doesn't do that post time-line for all classes.

Lana/Theron - the reason? Because you can't customize them. No change of clothing. No change of hair color. Same goes for the alliance companions that you get for doing the Star Fortress.

The tukata pet. Has no backstory. Looks good for a sith to go around with, but that would be accomplished via a pet. The companion doesn't go on crafting missions either. For a companion you have to pay RL $ for <on the cartel market>, I'd like it to be similar to Treek, or have more easily accessible means to increase influence with, have "conversations" with - i.e. maybe you could "train" it in different ways.

What I would like to see:
A companion that is "customizable" similar to our characters. Body size, species, head shape, hair color, etc.
So they wouldn't have to "retro" it, make it <I say it because you would choose the gender> a post-70th level companion, you would just get 1 per character, and you could give it a name and there would be 16 total "backstories" to choose from (1 for each class and a darkside/lightside for each>. As with other companions, we could continue to choose for it to be either heal/tank or dps.

I've only played one of the Republic classes all the way through, so I'm only really conversant in Imperial companions. That said, while there are several companions I don't care about one way or the other (Andronikos, Broonmark, and Ensign Temple all spring to mind), the two I really can't stand are Ashara and Skadge.

Why? Well, Ashara is just a constant reminder of how half-assed most of the writing in the Inquisitor's storyline really is and how much potential it wastes. Despite the promise of the promotional materials and the "Story" box on the character creation screen that the Inquisitor is a manipulative chessmaster par excellence, you comprehensively fail to corrupt Ashara to the Dark Side (no matter how smooth your handiwork on Taris is) and then have to spend all of her companion conversations listening to her alternately whine about how no one treats her like a Jedi anymore and praise you for your commitment to peace (even if you're a Dark V lunatic who bathes in Republic blood). Most companions in the game are written to respond to however you choose to play your character appropriately (for example, a Proud Warrior Race Guy Bounty Hunter has a very different relationship with Gault Rennow than a ruthless backstabber does), but every conversation with Ashara is written from the premise that your Inquisitor is a Light Side peacenik. And every time I summon her and the first words out of her mouth are a petulant "Don't make me go against my teachings," I want to space her.

And as for Skadge? Put it this way: if he wasn't protected by Plot Armor, he wouldn't have lived long enough to get recruited as a companion. No matter how you play your Hunter, there just is no reason to allow this raging psychopath -- who threatens an innocent woman with rape, insults and threatens you in every conversation, and first lets the target escape and then smashes your only lead -- to continue to draw breath until the end of the Belsavis quest line. And the fact that the writers actually give you a dialogue option to tell him to piss off when he demands to come along with you, only to have him make another empty threat on your life that you cave to immediately, feels like they're deliberately rubbing your nose in the fact that you're stuck with this horrible cancer on your crew for no good reason. And, of course, every word out of his mouth, whether in combat, on being summoned or dismissed, or when sent on a crew task, is yet another insult directed at you. His only good quality is that he gains approval when you insult him, because he's so stupid he thinks you're kidding. I got the achievements for doing all his conversations and killing a thousand opponents with him and haven't even looked at him since, much less taken him off the ship.

So...yeah. I have strong opinions about these two, and I was glad to hear about their roles (or lack thereof) in KOTFE.
