That old ship which was your life, your favourite and still had all your stuff on it when it was stolen from you and you were stranded in a war zone? Does the sentimental value of your home really mean so little? It's not like it was destroyed or you gave it up willingly - some bell end stole and you're just willing to give it up?

Personally I don't think it would make any sense for an inter-planetary smuggler not to have their own ship. Besides, the whole bloody thing is just a MacGuffin to get you out and about.

Hell there is an option in the beginning when they are asking you to go off and stop the rebels you can have your smuggler say "If i die, bury me with my ship and my credits" The smuggler LOVES that ship, poured every drop of blood, sweat and tears into it.

You're damn right i'd chase the SoB thought the galaxy to get my ship back hell or high water.

I would not just be "Oh well, my ship's gone, my lively hood, onto the next!" It would be "I'm gonna kill that mother frakker and get my ship back, then i'm gonna hang his hide from the walls!"

This. Especially this ship, a ship which was one of the fastest in the galaxy. Also, it's not only drugs. The only reson for going to Ord Mantell was to give weapons, (to the rebels I presume) and then you steal chemicals I believe from
Spoiler

As for scrounging for money to enter the sabacc tourney, wasn't the admission low? I don't remember, I have those books somewhere. Han was on a hot streak, and got lucky with an idiots array, I believe, and Lando was out of money. He used the Falcon as a voucher in order to stay in the game. Lando had sabaac, but Han had his Idiot's array, which is useless unless someone has sabaac, in which the Idiot's array wins.

actually, the weapons were for Mr. Spoilers to protect his stuff from the Seperatists, which is why he's after you in the first place. you let his weapons get stolen, so you have to die. the chemicals were something else that he wanted. they were used as a distraction while you make preparations to get your ship and his weapons back.

I would say something pithy here. But it would be a waste of time.

If you don't like the smuggler story, play a different story. And leave the smugglers to their happy, merry smuggling ways, without you.

Edited to add: my bounty hunter had to steal a ship. I keep asking, throughout her story, why I can't steal another, nicer ship. Like an agent's ships. Those things are sweet. Instead, I'm stuck with the clunker.

I can think of quite a few things I don't particularly like about the smuggler story (still a good one though), but the opening is not one of them, so I'm going to just say "^ What he(?) said." And ESPECIALLY agreed on the Bounty Hunter ship.

There's a couple of things I do like about my Bounty Hunter ship:

(1) I get Blizz and he's apparently determined to work on improving the ship. I'm not sure of the asthetics of his efforts. But regardless I figure it'll end up being pretty spiffy before to long.
(2) There's a holding cell in the cargo bay. Which makes a weird sort of sense, given my profession. That, and when I have friends visiting, they get awesome screenies sitting there in my holding cell. That's cool.

Still, it's an ugly-as-heck little ship. I'd gladly move Blizz and my holding cell onto a prettier ship I managed to steal. Come on, I'm the Champion of the Great Hunt. Braden mentioned "Glory" AND "Riches". Why I'm flying around in a beat-up mess of a ship is beyond me, sigh.

I'd also like to add that the smuggler is my brother, per my legacy. I figure he refuses to give up his ship for the same reason I want another one. His is nicer than mine, shrug.

I don't get it. Not having a ship (like all other classes) on the first two planets makes the whole story bad?

And how is Han Solo involved in the Old Republic?

Well I think the whole storyline with the ship is well done since you can't start with the ship (for obvious reasons). So there were basically only two options to hack this game-play limitation: either you lost your ship (was stolen) or you get/buy the ship some time later. The second option is even more dumb since smuggler really isn't a smuggler without a ship.
