I've played Agent, Warrior, Knight, Inquisitor, and BH to at least 50. I thoroughly enjoyed them all. Ordering them would be too hard so I split them into tiers:

Tier 1: Knight, Warrior, and Agent
Tier 2: Hunter and Inquisitor

With that said, I could see someone placing BH and Inq into the first tier. They're all great. It's just a matter of personal choice.

When I say "all" I of course just mean the 5 classes I've played through. I've played the first chapters of Trooper and Consular as well, but those didnt entice me as much. But like I said, it's a matter of personal choice, so I could easily see someone saying they enjoyed those classes. Just not me (as much)

Also if you play BH I would go lightside/neutral. I dont want to spoil you, but I can say that it's much better. From what I've noticed, most people who didnt like BH played DS.
Roswin - 50 Jedi Sentinel | Vaelin - 50 Sith Juggernaut | Kordis - 50 Sith Marauder | Vaelis - 50 Sith Assassin | Tylus - 50 Sniper
| Vint - 43 Mercenary | Kiden - 35 Vangaurd | Skavic - 22 Jedi Sage |

1. Imperial Agent - by far the most enjoyable, so much so I'll be replaying it soon. Talked to a friend who also did an Agent recently and there is a choice at the end of Chapter 1 I think which actually spins Chapter 2 into 2 different arcs.
2. Smuggler - very enjoyable if you play it "correctly".. some options given are just lackluster, but others really shine.
3. Bounty Hunter - the Mandalore story arc is the best part as is Mako's story.
4. Jedi Consular - Very in-depth and "Jedi-ish".
5. Trooper
6. Sith Warrior - Played Marauder but did enjoy the story overall
7/8. Sith Inquisitor/Jedi Warrior - both have pretty nice endings with Chap 3, but the rest of the story to that point just wasn't as engaging.

1.Imperial Agent- light or dark- the story is great and works for either.
2.Sith Warrior- Dark.
3. Jedi Knight- Light. flowed well, very good guy trope, fun story and great ending.
4. Smuggler- dark or light, but light fit better for me, kind of aimless, but fun story.
5. Inquisitor- dark. strange story, but was interesting.
6. Trooper- light or dark. basic story, ok.
7. Bounty Hunter- light or dark, light was actually more fun for me. Kind of a rambling story with no direction, not great end imo.
8. Consular- light. ug. my least favorite story, especially unsatisfying as dark side imo.

I have played every class to completion, both light and dark, and both male and female characters, and I think the most interesting was the imperial agent, followed by the iconic warrior and knight stories when played to their alignment canon.

But all art is subjective, pick the one that seems most interesting, youll get around to the rest eventually

Well Agent need it's own section.
I don't like the story.. I found it boring like hell BUT the agent got the most unique story in the game as he is non sith empire elite which each choice he makes is unique and the story ending varies based on your choice. Also best companions in the game.

I love most the 2 Sith class stories... Inquisitor was damn fun as dark side being evil and kicking *** climbing the sith hierechy while sith warrior dark side again was just fricking epic every part of the way everything I did was epic.

Bounty hunter was utter meh... It's cool class and mako\Blizz ownz big time but story was plain stupid... Funny enough I leveld 3 bounty hunters ^^ gameplay is damn fun.

Trooper was good for most part as light side but I suspect Dark side trooper would have been much more ****** and I think I may need to delete my trooper and re make a new one (possible to increase slot per servers ? )

Jedi knight plain sucks. played light side it was kotor 3 all over the place and only companion which was cool was kira. But story was blend and made no surprises where in kotor we had twists in plot all over the place as person which READ the "Revan" book it's a replica ... :X

I now play the consular as shadow light side and it's very nice... not that good as *** getting titles so early but it's decent and I like it.

Smuggler so far I decided screw the light\dark I choose whichever choice that gives me more credits... Dark 1\2 almost before coruscant lol... but kinda meh need to see how it's going on...

Bottom line i think that the 2 sith lines are The best in the game because you get to end in very high position in the empire and fight some major nemesis while getting some ****** cinematic.
Europe -> The Red Ecplipse
Oracans-> Sith Pureblood Inquisitor Sorcerer

I haven't played through many, but IA just because it's not really predictable. I had many "Oh dayym!!!" moments throughout the story.

The other classes seemed much more predictable. As a bounty hunter, you.... hunt bounties. Gee, I wonder what will happen on this planet... do 3 random side missions for a NPC, NPC tells me where to find bounty, I kill bounty.

Knight doesn't belong on even the top 3. It's a "You are THE chosen one" story with virtually no nuance or anything interesting. Light, dark, events play out almost exactly the same. You can be goody goody mcpeace and a certain NPC will still claim you are 'touched by darkness.' You can be a dark monster who slaughtered everyone in sight, and the final boss will still say you're too much of a goody goody to kill him, despite killing everyone up till that point.

I am convinced the only reason the Knight gets high mention is because of the final act 3 boss. If he was replaced by anyone else it wouldn't get the mention it does.

Out of the 3 stories I played so far:

1) Warrior: 9/10. Simply loved this one. Felt awesome all the way through, but it does carry some things the SI story should have had.
2) Inquisitor. 8/10. I'm a lore buff and a Sith buff, so this one spoke to me. It slowed down in chapter 2 and some of chapter 3, but picked up.
3) Knight. 6.5/10. It's a KotOR3 essentially, but not fond of cliches I found in it such as the Chosen One.

Not played all the classes though.

Played the Trooper which had an ok storyline

On the imp side, im currently playing the sith warrior, which is epic..Great story so far, however the sith inquisitor story is so horrible bad.

Bounty hunter story is also decent i think.

Gonna roll a Jedi knight and Agent, when the storyline is done with my sith warrior really epic story
