Ughh.. This has got to be the hardest decision yet.. I have played through both prologue story lines twice now and cannot seem to make up my mind... Imperial Agent or Gun slinging Smuggler

"Played both story lines twice and cant decide which one."

Does not compute.
Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm.
And well you should not. For my ally is a Rocket Launcher, and a powerful ally it is.

Imperial Agents have sniper rifles and airstrikes.
Other class has 2 pistols.

smuggler has airstrikes as well, and both classes "spells" are exactly the same, just one has 2 blasers and one has a sniper rifle

IA is easier to gear though (only one weapon to keep current.)
Clickclock Wood WAS my favorite zone of all time.

Not really, IA's also have to keep their vibroblade up to date.

For what its worth OP I have the exact same predicament, finished the prologue for both classes and am trying to decide which one to advance with.

- Better dialogue
- Better romance options (for males)
- Republic character (morally, I find it difficult to go Empire)

- Better story
- Nicer ship
- Nicer looking armour (IMO)

I think when it comes down to hit I prefer the mechanics and story of the IA, though I'm not entirely comfortable playing an Empire class.

It's Blaster Rifle + Vibroknife vs. Blaster Pistol + Scattergun
Or Sniper Rifle vs. Dual Blaster

I chose the Agent, after playing both to level 15.
Both play the same, though.

Lol glad to see I'm not the only one in this predicament. And thanks Zak, i pretty much agree with you completely.. I think I'm going to end up playing the IA due to the mechanics and story line.
