It would be a difficult choice for me between Shien and Soresu. Ultimately, I would probably have to go with Shien because it retains much of the defense of Soresu, but adds a little offensive punch.

Interested to hear which forms appeal to others and why.

Tough choice. I would probably practice two forms: Niman and Jung Ma.

Well I love Jar'Kai and Shien, but as we know from that clone, double Shien just looks idiotic.

Eh. It's a toss up.

Well, first I would grow a beard, then perfect the Trollesu Form beyond what even Obi-Wan was able to achieve with it.

But seriously, I prefer Shien Form ingame for both my Guardian and my Juggernaut, and would love to see the actual animations reflect each Form instead of the generic attack animations that are in there already.

I would master two forms, reverse-style Shien (Form V), and Ataru (Form IV).

EDIT: Thank you for the correction. Don't know why my brain said Form III. -.-

I would try to master both Makashi and Soresu, giving me an edge against the two most common opponents one could face

Form III is Soresu.

I would Master Form V completely, that way you have all your weakness covered. That way you have the Djem-So sub-form (Vader) for taking on single opponents and Lightsaber on Lightsaber combat, Shien sub-form (Gelen Marek) for taking on multiple opponents and blaster wielding opponents (though I wouldn't bother with reverse grip, using both with standard grip make it easier to switch on the fly as needed).

Shien and Niman. Perfect for mixing some Force attacks in with my lightsaber work.

I would probably go with Djem So(Form V) then master Ataru (Form IV)
