To me, my least favorite companion so far has been Broonmark.

Sith Warrior - Havent seen any of Broonmark, but Pierce just seems really braggy

Bounty Hunter - Skadge. Skadge. Skadge. Ruined the freaking crew man. Honestly, my BH would've shot him in the face right then and there, just bc that suits her personality.

Sith Inquisitor - Talos doesnt rly fit my deal :-/

Jedi Consular - All but Cedrax really.

Imperial Agent - Scorpio really.

Jedi Knight - Haven't seen any of Rusk, but so far what I've seen of those companions I love

Smuggler - AKAAVI. Freaking annoying man. Corso can get annoying sometimes but I hate Spar almost as much as Skadge.

Trooper - don't know enough about to judge
Aaray - Zabrak - Mercenary Miato - Human - Marauder
See MY version of their storylines on Deviantart and Tumblr

Jedi Knight: Rusk is not that memorable to be honest. Overall though, the companions for JK are great.
Jedi Consular: Qyzen Vess. God I want to stab his face with a lightsaber. **** ABOUT YOUR SCORE.
Trooper: Yuun. Just doesn't fit with the rest of Trooper companions.
Smuggler: Akaavi and Bowdaar. Akaavi being out of place and not that interesting. Bowdaar story sucks.

Imperial Agent: I hate Kaliyo with a passion but understand why shes Agent's companion.
Sith Warrior: Broommark. What the hell is he supposed to be.
Bounty Hunter: None
Inquisitor: Haven't played.

RIP orange pixel

Skadge. Why, why, would I take a guy who threatens to kill me on multiple occasions, almost ruins my bounty, and would rather kill me in my sleep than work for me, on my ship!? It makes no ethical sense, unless I'm suicidal. WHAT was BioWare thinking?

SW - Broonmark is utterly useless. I forgot why he is still with me. Whatever, good parking lot for my old gear.

BH: Apparently everyone hates Skadge, I haven't gotten that far but I watched my friend get him and he seemed funny at the time, so idk...

JK - I didn't even get a chance to use Rusk before I got Scourge, so he never even had a moment of use. Probably the most useless companion ever, but he's kinda cool as a person I guess. Also, T3 is just a signature astromech R2-D2 replica that has a completely uninteresting story that I almost just want to space bar through.

Sm - obviously the signature Chewbacca/Zaalbar ripoff, Bowdaar. Oh my freaking god all he does is complain about slavery. Kind of reminds me of real... never mind.

Tr - The Gand guy is annoying and ugly, stupid bug people suck!! In fact most of the companions for Trooper seem kinda tossed in without much thought. I absolutely LOVE Elara though (and she loves me ). Jorgan is... interesting enough.

The rest of the classes I haven't played enough to judge accurately but Khem Val is only cool after Act I, I know that much...

Why all the Xalek hate? His personality's not as one-dimensional as all that, he's just reserved: you have to look hard for the hints. It's not easy work I grant, but what I most dislike about him was the fact that I didn't pick him up until after VOSS!

And his "mechanical deficiencies" as a tank? Please, you gotta' be kidding me! Kit him up as a 'sin tank, point him at your enemies and let the lightning rip! My (healer) sorc doesn't care how many mobs he pulls, I just heal him right back up.....I've solo'ed H4s - level-appropriate H4s - with him as my tank! Tore through Makeb like a laser through Sullustan jam, including soloing the Imperial H2+ mission without a hitch (the H4 was a bit beyond me on my own).

Mind you, in those I set him to passive, pull/cc/LoS the mobs, and THEN let him go to work....tactics make all the difference.

All of them after your first. Seriously, I really only wanted one companion to enjoy adventures with. I hate being forced to invite others who I'll never use.

For most of them, I wouldn't mind this, but I hated my first companion on my JK
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Oh god, being forced to play 1-55 with only T7-01...

it's like the finale of Chapter 3, spun into a horrible never-ending nightmare.

Beep boop beep! Why did you kill that person? T7 = sad
