Does anyone else get the feeling he was originally a character in the plot of the Knight story but was added as a companion because a 5th one couldn't be come up with properly, he feels like he should have stayed on Hoth to me. The reasons given for joining are flimsy at best and it just doesn't feel like he belongs there *not because of his personality or anything, just how he joined up*

I wouldn't say that, but he had a kinda lame excuse for joining. At least he's useful. Unlike some companions...

Melee dps smuggler companion? Same thing - appears few times during class quests on planet, and then "oh hai I'll join you". Out of classes I've played trough whole story, so far half of them have one such "now that I think about it, *** I'm doing here?" companion.

The whole commanding officer in the military has ASSIGNED him to a JEDI (when the military has no real authority over the Jedi??). Yeah, I'll go with flimsy. He doesn't even bring anything to the story.

I will say this. The voice on that guy is awesome, I love it. But it's completely bizarre that he gets attached to your crew.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I like Rusk enough, but I wish he had been more fleshed out. He doesn't really have much of a character arc like everyone else does.

Though I agree with the general perception of Rusk's character, I must say that this awesome moment...

Makes having him worthwhile. Awesome stuff.

Lol, yeah but Rusk would say the same thing about taking out an Imp patrol armed with pellet guns. The man's suicidal.
