Let me join the I hate Skadge club and throw in a Broonmark while I'm at it.

Agreed. I think if they reworked the story with him becoming a part of the crew, it'd be a whole lot better.

Do something akin to how Jane became a part of Mal's crew.

Skadge. Ugly, mean, probably smelly, rude, nasty, ugly, bad, bully. Oh and ugly. How the guy ended up on my ship continues to bewilder me.

But honestly? I hate Kaliyo even more.

I'm just wondering if you thought he might perchance be ugly? I would try to kick his fat ***** out of the airlock but knowing my luck he would get stuck. While I am no fan of kaliyo she at least had some snarky comments that were funny.

I detest Skadge. I find that he fits in with my crew about as well as a Lego does the carpet. He's literally painful for me to be around. I have maximized all rep with all of the companions with my Bounty Hunter with the exception of Skadge. He is at somewhere near -12,000 affection. Even Gault was easier for me (a light-side, honorable Mercenary) to stomach. I must also agree that Tharan is a narcissist to an unhealthy extreme and truly, deeply annoying at times. I have found that through the entire story lines of Knight, Consular, Trooper, Smuggler, Inquisitor, Bounty Hunter, and Agent as well as through Chapter 1 of the Warrior (no I don't have a life, and yes I play too much) that I don't truly DISLIKE any except Tharan and Skadge. I am not fond of the smugglers Risha or Gus, though Corso is by far one of my favorite companions, more than making up for those two, and Spar makes for a great romance.
If anyone is interested in playing with some of the most interesting and truly unique personalities the Imperial Agent does not have any unlikable companions. In my opinion Vector is one of the best developed character in the game, and Kaliyo's rough around the edges attitude makes her a fun challenge to please. For the soft-hearts there's Temple and Lokin for your strange science/words of wisdom guy. SCORPIO is fun to play because of her hatred for you. I, personally find that the IA is the best story line and has the most diverse yet awesome companion selection.

Yep, Skadge. So far I haven't encountered any other companions that I don't like (out of 4 classes).

And... you guessed it, Skadge.

Even if Id been playing my bounty hunter as neutral or dark-side the guy would still make zero sense at all.

He gets on the ship by threatening to paste you, the single most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy, champion of the Great Hunt, killer of everything from womp rats to Jedi Masters. I get that we *have* to have 5 combat companions to fill out the roles (two tanks are freaking unnecessary though since there is virtually no difference between them) but is companion count really a good enough reason for my bounty hunter to suddenly become a frightened little wimp?

I think I dislike Guss Tuno the most. Bulging eyes fishhead who is also a chronic coward, an epic failure in life and doesn't say anything funny ever.

IMO, Skadge hands down. Not only is he physically repulsive, having an appearance close to a semi-melted pile of lard, he is also a bully with no redeeming qualities such as wit or intelligence.
Heh yeah.. But I think his temper tantrums are cute ("It ain't a temper tantrum!")
I liked several of his cutscenes.
(Skadge: "Tin can wouldn't give up where he was goin'. Guess I broke it."
me: "It would be in better shape if it fell from orbit.")

Dunno about you, but I took him aboard cause he is funny, and an extra hand is sometimes useful. Nothing about being a wimp.

I think having a guy on board who makes mouse droids go "SQUEEEE!!" is nice.

Skadge no doubt. Tharan is getting a bit of a raw deal here. He can be annoying, but he's genuinely a good friend to those he cares about. Skadge is slime.

Guss grew on me because of his sometimes silly comments .

Most unappealing...count me in the Skadge group. If I could have killed him I would have in a second.

While Rusk joining the JK crew does not make a lot of sense, at least he has the redeeming quality of being honorable; reckless but honorable.
