1. Jedi Consular (light side) - Act 1 was slow, but Act 2 and 3 more than made up for it. Had the most Star Wars-y feel and had good amounts of lore and references to KOTOR and other SWTOR storylines. Most of the other guys are just playing whack-a-villain or tracking down superweapons over and over again but the JC actually makes a difference. Also a much more believable hero than the JK. It's understandable that non-Star Wars fans wouldn't appreciate this storyline as much.
2. Sith Warrior
3. Bounty Hunter
4. Smuggler
5. Trooper
Dashto Vant - Arsenal Mercenary - The most dashing bounty hunter in the galaxy.

This is how I would rank the stories from worst to best in terms of how much I enjoyed the story. (It's just an opinion!) *grabs flame-resistant gear*

#8 - Sith Inquisitor (Dark).
The story was uneventful and often predictable and thus no suspense was built up. Quite underwhelming.

#7 - Smuggler (Dark).
This story had some funny moments that gave me a chuckle, but never got around to be truly epic or amazing.

#6 - Bounty Hunter (Neutral).
Go to place X, kill or subdue person Y. Repeat. Nothing major going on here, it's pretty much what you'd expect from a Bounty Hunter. Though the story does have a few surprises to mix things up.

#5 - Jedi Knight (Light).
The ends of Chapter 2 and 3 were quite epic, but everything else was underwhelming. Suspense and epicness were lacking most of the time.

#4 - Trooper (Light).
Quite a few good class missions that don't take place on the planets. Brings up some interesting moral conflicts. Manages to generate some suspense during key moments. Great final mission.

#3 - Sith Warrior (Dark).
Makes you feel like a bada** Sith most of the time. Cool companions, nice story with some good twists and cool moral choices.

#2 - Jedi Consular (Light).
This one made me feel like a real Jedi. Forging alliances, dealing with mysteries and other Force-related issues. Not just constant Imp-bashing like the Knight, you take a step back to look at the bigger picture. I love it.

#1 - Imperial Agent (Light).
This story is in a league of its own. If you care about story in a game, PLAY THIS CLASS. A great spy story with some Metal Gearish plot-twists mixed in. >>> AMAZING <<<

Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

1- I'd say probably Sith Warrior, just because it feels like a Sith Warrior story should, with memorable characters and moments.
2-Sith Inquisitor, I love the dry humor in here, the voice actor is perfect, it manages to be bitingly sarcastic one moment and serious the next, and I really liked the final duel, managed to do it by myself with companion on passive, was a long *** fight, but challenging and fun. I also like trying to guess who is going to betray me next.
3- Trooper, a good story line, it gets more into the political side of being a soldier, which I found very interesting, but I found the final fight to be rather lack luster, the ending was good though, and perhaps the point is that not every battle is glorious...
4- Jedi Knight- I rank this one so low mostly because Chapter 1 up until about halfway through Tatooine is mind numbingly boring, it's bascially just GO TO PLANET X AND DESTROY Y SUPERWEAPON and i absolutely abhor the male voice actor most of the time, he has like no and a half emotion. It does pick up during chapter 2 and really takes on a life of its own in CH3, Corellia is just like epicness given form.
Agre on the male jedi knights voice acting! I'd go for the voicing style of the huttball anouncer for the jedi knight.

-of what I've done of the smugler the story is kind of meh- Bord Mantel -is on the dry side- corso riggs doesn't do it for me as a companion-and mechanicly the logic is lacking.
-Jedi Knight at least through chapter 1 is prety good-Kira in terms of personality is great- she's got some spark. The voice acting for the male Jedi Knight is way to flat and just feels out of place.
-Of what i've done of Sith Inquistor isn't to bad (just wish they used the voice actor from the final boss on Esseles for the male voice actor) Zash is brilliant for example.
-Of what i've done of Jedi Counselor chapter 1 was prety good...but quesh almost killed it for me. The questh story didn't resonate for me-the only thing that saved it for me was Nadia.

Of the ones I've played all the way through:
1. Sith Inquisitor - It has a pretty cool beginning, and a great ending, though the middle-late middle parts can get kind of sidetracked and tedious. Still, it comes together in a fun way, and while there's a lot of macguffin hunting, the story of what you're doing and how you're building your power while doing that, is pretty interesting. Definitely my favorite.

2. Jedi Knight - A little bland in terms of goals, but decidedly epic. The set up is sort of an "okay, you're the hero, so save the day", so it feels a little vanilla, but it does a great job at making you actually feel heroic. Also has a great end, with the distinct feeling of "yeah, man, you just saved the entire freaking galaxy".

3. Sith Warrior - It's a pretty fair balance to the Knight. There's a bit more wiggle room whether it's a heroic or villainous (while the Knight is more like heroic or just a jerk), so it feels a little easier to tailor to the whims of the player. The downside of that, though, is that while you definitely feel like a ******, the story's adaptability also lowers its scope.

4. Bounty Hunter - A smaller scale than the others, being focused more on glory, riches, and vengeance than being a big dog in the galaxy. Hence you don't feel quite as much like the hero or villain of the galaxy, but you are still decidedly that for your own personal story, so it does what it does well. It's the lowest ranked for me so far, but it's by no means bad. I will say that the characters who join you feel more like a team than in others I've played. Basically, the story's weaker, but the character's are stronger, so it does compensate. But it didn't make me feel like it was as awesome as the others.

Of the ones I've played to some significant, non-50 degree:

I have 3 50's(Jedi Consular, Sith Warrior, Trooper) + another 3 characters that are at the beginning of or in the middle of chapter 3(41 Smuggler, 40 Jedi Knight, 44 Bounty Hunter) And then a 29 Agent and a level 10 SI. I'll only judge the stories I've completed though.

1. Jedi Consular(Light)
A solid story of a jedi, it really gives you that Yoda kind of feel where you're BA with the force but yet incredibly calm cool and wise at the same time. I really like Tharan, Qyzen and Nadia as companions as well. The best chapter is a hard one for me, chp 1 was kind of like a KotOR II story since you're going from planet to planet trying to find jedi masters(Only under much different circumstances of course) but it was awesome some of the confrontations.
chp 2 made you feel like a hero, and chp 3 makes you feel more like a diplomat and the dark side confrontation really ramps up, the JC story is the best of the 2 jedi stories hands down.

2. Sith Warrior(Light)
This story gives you a nice glimpse of sith politics and shows you some of the relationship between the military and the sith, ultimately this story is about rising to power and being an unstoppable BA against all odds and smack talkers, it's up to you if you want to be a douche through it all or not. It definitely has its Darth Vader moments as well since you aren't under a lot of authority, and you have less and less authority above you as you go along. Not a lot of differences between chp 1 and 2 but ultimately I'd spoil a bit much if I went into chp 3.

(This probably wouldn't be number 3 on my list if I had more 50's) 3. Trooper(Light)
This story definitely from the get-go makes you feel like a republic trooper, I know they consider the Origin planet the prologue and then Coruscant the intro to chapter 1 but it felt like Ord mantel all the way to Alderaan was chapter 1 because the very thing that takes place on Ord mantel is the whole reason chapter 1 was what it was, It was unexpected, it was well done, it was definitely the best chapter 1 imho. Chapter 2 had a lot of promise, I thought the good stuff was going to keep coming but the process of getting done what you needed done to complete chapter 2 was dragged out and some what pitiful, the best parts of chapter 2 were not even on the planets, all you're doing is errands for people you need on your crew when they should have just been assigned along the way while you're doing something more important to the goal, but that's just me. Chapter 3 was just a bunch of errands for more people in the military, but I guess havoc squad is there to fix screw ups and do the jobs of lazy ineffective troopers. The end of Chapter 3 was cool though.

This thread is making me nervous. I plan on running a Bounty Hunter next, since I love the powers, armor, and Mako. But BH tends to be rated quite low by most everyone.

I'll tell you Chapter 1 for the BH is fun and exciting with several twists. Chapter 2 is good but relatively un exciting until the finale of Chp. 2 then it seems like it gets pretty good, haven't finished chp 3 though.
