SIth Warrior ( Darkside ) the best
Sith Inquisitor ( Darkside ) under the best

any other class, mediocre
any lightside - totally pathetic, brain wrecking idealistic stain on a proper master morality
Aperture Science. We do what we must, because we can. For the good of all of us- Except the ones who are dead.

I think I'm going to join those people who are wondering why there is so much hate for the consular's story. I'm on Tatooine right now, and so far it's quite interesting. Not so oh-my-god-epic like sith warrior or jedi knight, but still good enough for me. Better than sith inquisitor or trooper, in my opinion...
The only real problem I have is that the game doesn't react if you're trying to be dark-sided.

It's not about what he says, but how he says it. Pardon me, but jedi or not, he is still a person, and he is attached to his daughter. It's pretty obvious from how he speaks about her being in danger before they send you to that ship. Besides, this particular jedi was shown to be... not "by the book" one, to say the least. So no, I don't find his replay fine.

being a person doesnt require to be emotional. maybe he "loved" her but what made him a good jedi is how he reacted after her death.

I quite enjoyed the Inquisitor Story, and being able to wield a Double-lightsaber made my Character a slight bit ******. I tried the Consular and got Past Chapter 1, Hated it.
Best: (In my Opinion) Inquisitor.
2nd best. (My Opinion.) Agent & Smuggler.

These are all awesome opinions, it seems that most people had differentiating ones because of their different choices they made within their respective stories. It is unfortunate that Bioware gave us the option to make a dull character; however, there are two sides to every coin, and so they also gave us the freedom to make an amazing character within the Star Wars universe as well. Bioware did this because the job of a writer is to make characters within a story as real and life like as possible. That said real people aren't real unless they fail, fall, or lose. They have to. A character that wins all the time is a stale character. I have played all of the Force using classes in this game and have started with all of the non-Force using ones to varying different degrees. Now, I definitely have a bias towards dark sided characters and that is my main choice of play through in any Star Wars/Bioware game. However, I did want to vary it up a bit and give life to my characters. There are more than lightside and darkside choices, there are non aligned personality choices in conversations and cutscenes as well. If you stay consistent your character will be much more enjoyable. Below I will list the classes, gender, personality/alignment types, and the act completed beside them. My opinion is solely based upon your choices actually mattering to the NPCs or if they were ignored. Also, if I feel they could have expanded more. There will be ZERO spoilers.

SIth Warrior: Male: Act III: Dark Side/Chaotic Murderer: This was the first I played through, and overall it was amazing. I do not feel they should have changed anything. I felt like a true Sith and every one of my choices made a difference. I am currently re-rolling light side on this class. Roll this class if you want to know more about being a sith. That is really for both Sith classes.

Sith Inquisitor: Female: Act III: Dark Side/Sarcastic Manipulative: Some parts were really serious and others were downright hilarious. There are some things that I would change; however, during this story you definitely feel the actual frustration of the character and the prejudice you face from coming up from slavery. (That was not a spoiler, it's in the opening credits). I am re-rolling for new advanced class and different personality. Roll this class if you like a fun-filled experience and really well connected story.

Jedi Knight: Male: Act III: Dark SIde/Republic Patriot: If you like KOTOR I and II play this class! This class has very original characters that you definitely feel for. It is very emotional and the music adds to it. Notice I went Republic Patriot, this is very much like Anakin; he wants to do what's right but doesnt know how. It made the dark side playthrough much more enjoyable. This personality put purpose in the dark side decisions my character made. Some of those choices did go unheard by the NPC or were not available to me which was unfortunate but I still enjoyed. I am re-rolling light side and female on this class.

Jedi Consular: Female: Act III: Light Side/The Helping Hand: Act 1 of this story was amazing. You really felt like a Jedi making a difference. This story is good; however, this story feels separated. It feels kind of discontinued and there are some jumps. The ending of the story makes it worthwhile. Re-playing male and dark side. Roll this class if you like role-playing.

Trooper: Male: Prologue: Dark SIde/Renegade Soldier: So far so good, don't have any complaints. Roll this class if you like Mass Effect.

Smuggler: Female: Act I: Dark Side/ Credit Hound: Pretty good so far. The situations that happen to you are hilarious. I recommend being light side and sarcastic, I have heard it makes the story way better. I love dark side though so I am stickin' with this. I feel like the Female voice actor definitely was in Rugrats, tell me if I am wrong lol. Roll this class if you like Han Solo, and hate hutts.(Greedo is included because I assume he loves Hutts).

Bounty Hounter: Female: Started: Dark SIde/Extravagant Gun for Hire: Since I just started I don' really have much of an opinion; however, I do love the idea of the story so far. It is very interesting. Roll this class if you like Boba Fett or Jango.

Imperial Agent: Male: Prologue: Dark Side/Imperial Patriot: This personality may change due to changes in story. But simply all I can say about this is being a spy is awesome. Roll this class if you like James Bond, Splinter Cell, or Metal Gear Solid.

Overall each story has its own pros and cons. I have found that in most of the class stories, Act II is the least exciting with the exception of the Sith Inquisitor. It was very different from normal. I believe Bioware made Act II this way because it is more of a transition between 1 and 3. My overall favorite as of now is the SIth Warrior, I think that might be because I played it first but who knows. That opinion might change later on. If you read all the way through this, thank you for taking the time and I hope this helped you.

I just finished the Bounty Hunter - my 5th Complete Class Story. I have done Smuggler, Jedi Knight, Agent, Trooper, and Bounty Hunter to 50.

I rate story's from 3 categories - Overall Story, Companions, and Dialog.

The Bounty Hunter has some pretty decent Dialog choices and really good companions. The overall story is not good. quite a few people have said it has a great Act 3 and I kept expecting it to get better.

It is the same basic story the entire way though. Go to a planet and capture/kill a bad guy. I guess in the most simple form it sticks to what a bounty hunter does -collects bounties. They could have added some real twists and turns to the plot and given it some real flavor but it pretty much never changes.

At least the trooper has some very epic moments in a very straight forward story.

My Ratings.
Agent 10/10
Smuggler 9/10
Jedi Knight 8/10
Trooper 7/10
Bounty Hunter. 5/10

Jedi Knight - Predicable
Smuggler - Funny, but went too overboard
JC - Most boring story I've ever seen
Trooper - Act 1 was brilliant. Actt 2 and 3, though not as good, are pretty awesome

Sith Inquisitor - Not terrible, but not that good
Bounty Hunter - Had a lot of awesome moments and knew how to keep you in suspense
Sith Warrior - Great atmosphere and some good characters. the ending is one of the most epic climaxes in the game. I think that it had the most interesting companions. overall it is good
Imperial Agent - At first I thought it would be lame since it was some one who didn't use the force, but....... The imperial agent is one of this games strongest stories.
The writing it brilliant, the side characters are memorable. The atmosphere was great and it always had great tension, plus the voice actors for the agent are some of the best in the game in my opinion. The only downside of this was that the companions are......eh

Of the ones I've played:

Rep-side:

Smuggler -- Hands down, the best Prologue and Act I. You absolutely must roll a Smugg in order to experience the brilliance of the conversation with Trymbo on the origin-planet if you've any sense of humour at all. Kinda loses its way through Act II, but rallies back for a big old bang-up finish in the finale. The Smuggler gets most of the best lines, too.

(Just as an aside: I'm a hopeless starry-eyed Gunslinger-lover from waaaaaay back, but the sound/animation of the Scoundrel's Sucker-Punch/Flying Fists has been making me LOL every single time of late. Seriously, it's friggin' hilarious )

Trooper -- Nice and solid. Basically a fun old '80s action-movie, from back in the days when action-movies were good, and very easy to enjoy as a result, especially as a Commando. IMHO, one thing this story does really well is to show the "shades of grey" between light and dark, and how doing one's duty in a fundamentally "good" sense does not always equal doing the fundamentally "morally-good" thing.

Jedi Consular -- Brilliant concept, held back by poor execution, and insufferably wooden voice-acting that is almost painful to listen to at times. The blatant /handwaving away of any even remotely "dark" choices is also grating. Very unfortunate, as this story could have rivalled the IA easily in its own way, otherwise.

Jedi Knight -- Only got to Rep-Taris so far, but...meh. Far too predictable, far too stock and jejeune "U R TEH BIG HERO!!111" for my tastes. As well, I utterly refuse to believe that the guy-Knight is voiced by David Hayter (Solid freakin' Snake, man!!!), I know well that he can do much, much better.

Imp-side:

Imperial Agent -- what can I say that hasn't already been said umpty-dozen times? By far the best of the lot. Also contains one of the game's most delightfully disturbing and downright creepy moments when

Spoiler


Bounty Hunter -- This story is proof that a story doesn't have to be stunningly original to be good, as long as the basic quality is there, and the BH definitely has this. And the BH also has the most fun companion-crew --yes, even that odious tub of guts, Skadge. (Although I still can't get past how blatantly the writers railroad you into taking him. That was a big blot on what is otherwise a "quality product" throughout.)

Sith Inquisitor -- The most overtly "personal" of the Imp-side stories, IMO, and to its credit, maintains a solid direction throughout all three Acts, which some of the others don't always do. Andi Revel is rapidly becoming one of my favourite companions, too. ("How's this for shooting?" said so conversationally --he could just as easily be saying "How 'bout those Flames last night?" as he and my Lightning Sorc just turn everything to vapour in like, seconds.)

Sith Warrior -- Haven't played, but: If one of the major antagonists has a thread devoted to him which is basically 80+ pages of fat-jokes, then you know there's bound to be something good in there
Guys/Gals, could you please start queuing for real Flashpoints again?
