I just finished my Jedi Knight and i'mlooking to start a new toon. I would rather play solo so I want to play the best story. Which class should I play next?

Seriously, pretty much any of them.

I have completed Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight and Smuggler on the Republic side (currently working on Trooper) and enjoyed each of the story lines all immensely.

On the Empire side I have completed Sith Inquisitor only and was a little disappointed both in the story line and finding it overall a hell of a lot easier than Jedi Consular; hardly a challenge in fact. I'm hoping that when I get around to it I don't have the same experience with Sith Warrior vs. Jedi Knight (JK being by far the most difficult and frustrating - and thus rewarding - class mission I have done. All of the others are very easy by comparison).

While Bounty Hunter seems pretty fun and all (recently finished chapter 1), I'm currently having a blast with Imperial Agent where the story line is the most fun I've had since I started playing this game. The class itself provides some unique opportunities for intrigue and surprise and the story tellers have yet to disappoint and I'm not far into chapter 2 as it is.

The trooper story is kinda lame imo.

I thought the gunslinger was pretty fun, a little bit of intrigue, lots of guns, gals, explosions and snarky remarks everywhere you go.

I haven't play it yet, but I hear the imperial agent is generally regarded as the best.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

Aye, I believe the comments I heard put the Agent as the best story overall. It's filled with twists and turns I never saw coming, and plays like a James Bond movie.
Trooper I've generally heard as being the best Republic-side, and I can agree. It feels like a war movie, and the chapter climaxes have some of the most epic moments in the game.

The Imperial Agent. With the exception of the Jedi Knight, none of what the other classes have can be called stories compared to the Agent.

I did not like the Inquisitor or Warrior stories at all. I was expecting an ascension type story that was similar to that of Darth Bane. Boy was I disappointed. Perhaps I set my expectations too high, I don't know.

I absolutely hated the Consular story. No matter how bad and free you wanted to be, you were forced to be this goody-two-shoes-loser.

The Agent story was great...a much better story than Ive ever gotten in any MMO. Inquisitor story line was terribad. Im sorry, I know that someone out there spent a lot of time working on it, but it just wasn't good...at any point. I also enjoyed the Bounty Hunter story. It wasn't amazing, but it was good.

I hated the Bounty Hunter story after Tatooine, you might be able to guess why but I will tell you anyway...
