You know nothing of "being saddled with a companion" until you put up with Kaliyo for about 25 levels.

Not at all of them. She approves when you're being a jerk to jerks.
DS Jaesa is much one dimensional than Vette though, and she does disapprove of every LS choice. AFAIK as I've seen at least. The Juggernaut that's teamed with her is mostly DS, so the only time a LS choice gets made is if I think the DS would be a bad tactical choice.

Loads of people pretty much loathe Malavai Quinn, but if you ask me, he has the best male romance in the game. I have a soft spot for stoic people who are almost obsessed about their field of profession. I always found it pretty adorable how he first tries to make the warrior quit the [flirt]s by calling the behaviour unprofessional, but then understands that warrior isn't going to stop this unprofessionality and allows himself to respond to her advances. Then, when he finally falls in love with warrior, he seems to look at the relationship the way he looks at his work: everything should be at peak efficiency! This may feel a bit cold and clinical, but anything else would be out of character for him. He's very stoic when it comes to his personal life, and will never change.

For male warrior who is not "I murder puppies for fun"-kind of dark side user, I'd pick Vette. She's funny, cute and just a little crazy. I think every sith lord should have their own Vette: the sith tend to take themselves a bit too seriously and a cute little twi'lek occasionally telling them how weird they are would surely fix that problem. Works well for light side characters and dark side characters who still do show compassion to some people, or are willing to treat Vette as an exception and show her their softer side.

I haven't romanced Jaesa yet, but judging by her conversations with a female warrior, she'll be a perfect match for those who want to murder anything and everything. Pierce is really more of a one night stand / friends of benefits kind of arrangement, and I wouldn't call it a romance.
That pretty much matches my views on them as well. Vette was my first Sith Warrior's choice, the second went with LS Jaesa (or is technically "single" since she's in the romance is bad camp)

while the third went for DS Jaesa.
I still have to roll a female one to see Quinn's sometime... so many Warriors!

I think others have summed up my opinion on Jaesa quite nicely. She's pretty one dimensional, and would in my opinion only complement an equally one dimensional warrior. If you pick every dark side choice for the sake of picking dark side points then you'll probably find Jaesa amusing.

If you play a character that occasionally shows compassion or restraint then even a dark side warrior can get along very nicely with Vette. I romanced her on two dark side warriors, whereas I find Jaesa repulsive and very poorly executed as a character. They just don't compare.

Vette is easy enough to please, you don't have to be light side or even neutral. If you aren't 'evil because shut up' you might really like Vette.

It would seem Vette is generally more popular than Jaesa. Honestly I love them both. They are night and day from each other with very different personalities. Vette is cute, funny, and quirky. She is very sweet, but with a bit of an edge to her. She will tolerate Dark side choices to a degree, but if your warrior is a psychotic murderer Vette isn't for you. See works well with a light side sith or as a balancing act to a lawful evil type.

Jaesa on the other hand oozes sex appeal, she is hot and dangerous yet somewhat psychotic, well ok she is ******* crazy. However she is hopelessly devoted to the warrior, and I found her loyalty to be quite endearing. For me it was a simple decision. I adored Vette, but I just really fell hard for Jaesa.

Quinn should definitely be killable.

After making a dark Jaesa, I would say don't do it! She is really over the top cartoony evil... a waist of an interesting path for Bio Ware to take with her character...

So Malavai is basically a male, Imperial, Dark Side flavored version of Elara (except keeping Elara happy removes most of the more interesting conversation choices for a LS trooper)?

Just got Malavai on my female DS Mara, he tends to get fidgety when my Mara flirts with him (and she is the "murder puppies for fun" type Sith). Thinking about making a LS Jugg to do the Vette romance (also probably the fastest/easiest way to max out a ranged dps companion for the buff without rolling a Pub and romancing a walking, talking cat haha).

I love Kaliyo, I rerolled a female agent to male just to romance her. Also like both DS Jaesse and Vette, they are both fun. The one companion I really want to push out of an airlock is Nadia Grell.

You know nothing, Jon Snow.

@OP - I think Jaesa would be fun if you're playing a for fun super dark side playthrough. Maybe you could be some sort of twisted force sensitive Bonnie and Clyde. I admittedly didn't get far in dark side Jaesa's storyline because I just don't like the character. Perhaps, as others have said, she does have unexpectedly endearing qualities that make a romance more rewarding than beyond "lol we're such jerks". Which is probably plenty of reason for me to try a super dark side kitten puncher and use Jaesa as my puppy kicking companion. In fact, I think that'll be my next character.

Quinn isn't so much Dark Side as "For the Empire!" in all things. He'll happily watch you exterminate pesky Jedi as well as anyone who undermines Imperial authority, but he'll also strongly disapprove if you waste valuable resources (including people) by wantonly destroying them rather than putting them to good use.
