The Jedi Voices are killing me!

I like the Jedi voices much better than the Sith voices. My favorite voice is the female knight (Kari Wahlgren). The voice is young sounding. The Sith voices are very arrogant sounding and do not sound that good when choosing the light side choice.
Oddly enough Kari Wahlgren is also the voice for Ashara. Ashara is my favorite inquisitor companion only because Talos never says "You call this Archeology".
Both the consular voices sound dry to me, but once I get used to them they work well.

You don't like the sith voices?

Maybe it's the lightside thing with them. I tried to go a little light with my warrior after going very dark with the inquisitor; but I just couldn't. It just feels right being arrogant and evil. "Use your anger! It is the only way to defeat me!"

I do manage to stay light when I can with my crew.

I found the (male) Consular voice a bit jarring at first on Tython. But well into late act 1 and all the way until the end of the class storyline I honestly thought it was one of the best voices done in the game, second only to the male IA and male SW. My character's looks were young with the padawan braid.

I can only guess it might be because Nolan North started recording the Tython dialogue first and hadn't fully made a realization of who the character he was acting yet. But it was really top notch for a light-side Jedi especially within the constraints of what a Jedi is. The dark-side choices sounding ridiculously out of character is more a fault with the writing not truly accounting for the choice of being a dark-side Jedi Consular, than a fault with the voice actor.

As for the Jedi Knight I find it is a bit dull if you always choose the light-side choice and David Hayter does a great job as a grey or slightly dark-leaning Jedi. Mostly a good guy but has temptations of power.

Male consular voice works great with a pure blood Sith.

The female Consular voice works really well with a body type 3 Miralukka, IMO.

I found a male Consular unplayable. I don't know, it was seemed flat beyond my ability to pay attention. Thus far this is the only class voice that has actively discouraged me from playing it.

I've heard that same accuaation leveled at male Knights, but I was playing my Knight as a proper LS Jedi wise man, so it fit. Plus, Solid Snake. I just liked the voice quality more, and there was some expression in it, just not in-your-face.

The funniest part of it is that the voices of the JK is Solid Snake and the JC is Nathan Drake. 2 of the best video game characters to grace a console.

I don't mind the voices for my characters...but...

The Jedi Knight male voice fits my Miralukas a LOT better than it fits the Twi'leks I've seen. Don't like it with Sith or Chiss either.
