Alright I think I will go with IA. How soon am I going to have to start thinking about advanced classes, and any thoughts to preferences with an IA, or is it just taste and playstyle?

If you like stealthing around like a rogue, being melee, or healing, go Operative.
If you like being ranged, go sniper.

If you're considering doing end game raid content, you'd have an easier time getting a spot as a sniper rather than an operative dps, though healers are always in short supply.

I thought snipers were overall more fun than operative. The cover mechanic is a little hard to get used to at first.

Sith warrior is the epitome of a dark force user in Star Wars. It has all the elements you'd want and a really interesting narrative. Because of that it is my favorite. The other stories like agent are nice but not specific to the Star Wars lore.

I'm gonna agree with Urael on this.

Maybe experiment with a couple different classes before settling on one for the journey. It only takes a couple hours to get a character to level 10 (where you choose an advanced class).

While I really enjoy the Agent story line... dual wielding light sabers as a Sith was just too good to pass up for me personally, so I saved agent for later.

All of them are good, if you enjoy Star wars and getting imersed in your character. Choose the class you think you will enjoy playing the most.

As everything, it is possible to hate things if you will yourself to do it. Its a good game, enjoy it, its the most important part. Dont buy into the haters, they dont know what they are talking about.

I agree with others, I think that Imperial Agent has one of the best stories in the game.

Sith Warrior is a good story with a few very predictable points.

The Inquisitor is a lot like tomb raiding which most people found very boring but some people like it.

The Agent is a good story but it would be foolish to say its much much better than the others. It has a problem in that by the end eveything has changed.
