Worst - propably Trooper. After chapter 1 (which isn't bad in itself) there pretty much is no story. Just some (very) loosely connected missions.

2nd worst - Consular (ZERO choices with consequences, sometimes story even actually retcons your dark side choices)
I really loved my Trooper's story, but I found the Jedi's to be really REALLY good as well.

I have 11 toons right now...

So far even though my JK is my main, I have found the story not all that interesting, my favourite republic into zone story was the consular. The trooper story I liked a lot from 1-10, the smuggler I haven't gotten very far into yet.

On the Imperial side my main is the Sith Assassin which is not too bad but not any better than my JK story.

From what I've played so far of my Imperial Agent, I like the story a lot so far. Also the Bounty hunter has been fun up to the point I played it.

Playing Consular.
Found Act One Sleepish, very slow start i felt, perhaps I was expecting a bit more action.
Act 2 - Enjoying it a lot more, currently on Hoth.

Personally, I loved the Inquisitor storyline, up until near the end, when things got repetitive... The ending to it was very well done, IMO though.

As far as the worst I've played so far, I'd say it's the Trooper I just started the other day. It's a pretty dry story to me.

WTB more character slots!

Seriously though, 8 slots isn't enough for me, i hope they will expand, especially with the upcoming legacy system and all.

I loved the trooper story, but I felt it had sort of the opposite problem to your complaints about the JK story. In the end, especially compared to the way the SW/JK/IA stories play out, everything you do feels like it's just all background noise.


The Inquisitor story bothered me because it doesn't feel like there's nearly as much intrigue as their should be. You're a Sith, a creature supposedly built around the idea of deception and backstabbery... and more specifically you're the craftier and more subtle variation of the Sith... but there's none of that actually happening in the game.

Especially weird when put up against the SW storyline, which is pretty much all about Sith politics when you boil it down ( despite the SW being painted as the more brutish of the two ).

Sith Assassin? More like Sith Archaeologist....

I feel like I have to elaborate more on the Bounty Hunter's crew to justify just how awesome each of them are.

Mako - She's got a vendetta. I won't spoil it, but despite her reasons for vengeance being very cliche, she's just a very likeable character in general. She reminds me of the cute techie girl in most sci-fi/fantasy story who's a pro navigator and a walking encyclopedia that you can't help but fawn over because she's also sort of goofy.

Gault - He's sarcastic and witty, but you can tell there's something missing in his life that's very important to him. My relationship with him is something like me being the young hotshot and him being the two-bit old timer. He even has the same relationship with Torian, and the two go at it every now and then. He gives me advice, but I tend to follow it loosely, if at all, and I always expect him to say something about it.

Torian - I could be really good friends with this guy. He's a very traditional person who has a clear code of honor that I share. He respects and looks up to me despite my not being part of his true heritage, and I see him as a little brother. He's also a pretty boy and seems to attract Mako, so I have to jump between them from time to time to remind him that she's mine, lol.

Blizz - Ok, if you don't love Blizz, then you have no heart. He's a part of me that I never knew I needed, and now I can't live without. He's just so adorable and quirky.

Skadge - Sometimes I just wanna toss him out of the airlock, but I can't help to respect the guy for his bluntness and willingness to face anything head on. His motives are suspect, and his interactions with the rest of my crew can get pretty tense at times, but there's no one I can rely on to jump into a warzone armed with nothing but his fists other than Skadge.

My favorite part about the BH story is that the bounties seem like side missions, while his relationship with his crew ultimately plays the bigger role. I've also just reached a turning point in my Bounty Hunting career. I'm generally pretty apathetic to both Imperial and Republic relations, and will pledge my allegiance to who pays me more -- nothing personal. But BioWare just tossed a wrench into that for the moment, and I now genuinely want to kill a certain person for a very personal reason.

Qyzen is pretty one-note so far (hint: he likes hunting). A bright spot is Theran, who's fun to be around and has the perky sidekick Holiday to keep things going.

The mystery that the Consular storyline revolves around seems really obvious. I say 'seems' because I'm not done Chapter 1, so I could be wrong! We'll see if my prediction is right once I finish.
Ok, just finished Chapter 1.

There seems to be a lot of Emperor’s New Clothes “I hear IA is the best and Consular is the worst” nonsense.

Whether you will find a particular class story “good or bad” depends a LOT upon how you approach it. The game story, companions, PC voice etc really funnels you along certain paths.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing but if you fight against it too much you will likely hit a hit wall of *** my character wouldn’t do/say that, why cant I pick a fourth option and join the seperatists/cabal/whatevers. As a result of this I am enjoying the Consular story the most and abandoned the Imperial Agent character.

Before release I was most excited about creating an Imperial Agent as my main. I thought of a little backstory, some basic likes/dislikes and goals. Basically a pro Empire by the book upper class guy who didn’t make it into Sith training because of a lack of Force sensitivity. I was delighted with the snarky English accent, loved the skullduggery on Hutta, but it was all downhill from there. The companion I am stuck with is anti-Empire and disapproves every time I make an in character decision. At the end of Chapter One I am still Neutral form a mish mash of light/dark a pro Empire outlook gave me. The non-class quests seemed to make more sense than the Class quests which rewarded loyalty to the Sith and Empire by jerking me around and treating me more like a servant/terrorist than a trusted Agent. I abandoned the character (and Kaliyo) on Nar Shardar because it no longer made sense and in my mind he did a runner, disillusioned with the Empire and the galaxy and bought his own planet in the Bahamas. The dialogue options, event and companion really pushed / assumed I was a snarky anti-Imperial anarchist and I think it would have made more sense and been enjoyable if I had have played such a character, if I do go back to the AI it will be a new character from that perspective.

Next I tried a JConsular which according to the forum sheep is supposedly the worst story. I have just got off Courscant and am absolutely loving it. Full Dark side, but not ChaoticStupid puppy evil, more Saruman lore chasing, violence is necessary to protect and preserve. The story allows this kind of role to be played brilliantly, the first companion names me Herald of his god who demands killing as much prey to increase divine “score”, this reconciles/plays well with the Jedi non-agression philosophy and game mechanic of “kill 60 mobs”. The story is epic, in the quests on the first planet I follow the ethos of the First Dark Jedi (shame I couldn’t become his apprentice), forge lightsaber, slay all who might oppose me, my “masters” aren’t brain-washing / bossing me around, showdown in the ruins if the Jedi Temple on Coursant love it.

Generally I think its more exciting/enjoyable to play a rebel anti-hero and BW is aware of this. I also think the personality of the 1st companions is a big indicator of what direction the story is going to be pushing you in. If you really hate the 1st companion and they are –minus effection of every decision you make it might be an indication you will be fighting an uphill RP battle with the story.

While it's cool that you like the JC story better than the IA's, I don't think it's fair to insult others who feel the opposite.

Personally, I like the IA story much better than the JC story (only through the Chapter 1 on the JC story though). That doesn't make me sheep.
