I picked Imperials and am sitting at character creation debating over what class to pick. I want a light saber but my main focus is on the story. Which class has the best story for Imperials in your opinion? I was told that Agent and Inquisitor do, and I'm somewhat leaning towards Inquisitor, but a few people I talked to were adamant that Agent had the best story. Thoughts anyone?

IA is the best story by far. Inquistor is a "cartoon villian story" with very poor writing. If you want to be imperial with a sabre, your best bet is Sith Warrior.

Sith Side: Agent and Sith Warrior were my favorites....

Republic Side: Smuggler and Trooper....

Lol. But all my friends played imperial. I'm always a good guy whenever I make a character in an RPG, I wanna be the bad guy for a change

IA is the best story IMO, but if you want a light saber, it seems that most people talk highly of the Sith Warrior story.

If you want to pick based on combat, it's like this:

Warrior > Marauder, melee dps, /Juggernaut, tank or melee
Inquisitor > Sorcerer, heals or ranged caster, / Assassin, melee dps or tank with stealth ability
Imperial Agent > Operative, melee dps or healer with stealth / Sniper, ranged dps
Bounty Hunter > Mercenary, ranged dps or healer / Powertech, tank or melee dps

^this

Inq. story is terrible imo (force ghost nonsense had me wincing and rushing to gt it over with so I could level and run next character/story way back when.

IA story is REALLY good imo...(by far the best) ...BH isn't bad...Sith warrior is meh....

Pub-side again the jedi stoires are awful...consular being even worse than jk, though they are both bad...
Smugg. is pretty good and so is trooper.

Just my two-credits....your mileage may vary

+1 for Agent. Think James Bond + Star Wars.

Opinions are pretty varied, though. One person's trash is another person's treasure.

While most people seem to think the IA story is the best, I've met a few that loathe it. It's not a good story for someone that wants to be a celebrated hero (or villain). It's probably the darkest and most convoluted story.
