at level 50, give the choice to change sides. I know this has been talked about a lot but, this is a new twist!
Either after your last class mission or during your last class mission have an option to switch sides. A one time deal non reversible.Also make it depend on your current level of light or dark
Behind the scenewith respec have to choose advanced class & assign points again)
Jedi Knight -- Sith Warrior
Jedi Consular -- Sith inquisitor
Smuggler -- Bounty Hunter
Trooper -- Imperial Agent
Or just keep their current class/spec and only change their faction and that is it.
and being a lvl 50 there is no need to add more story or stuff.
Being with the expansion coming out you can either have this at 50 or 55 and adjust it for future expansions.
I know a lot of people want this, and if its a one time only thing you won't have problems with people going back and forth.

I just don't understand the point of faction changing. Why can't you just roll an alt? Double XP week + the boots, you'll get to level 50 quick...there is no real point in changing faction. Also explain the voice change if this would happen..

I don't see why any of those would be difficult, if you take an empire item over to republic toon it automatically changes, companions can be given just like they would for anyone who picks the advanced class in the first place, as goes for the rest.

Thank you for the possitive feedback. I agree totaly with you. there are several reasons why someone would want to do this such as you want the same name and don't want to delete your toon, and many more reasons

Ok, I guess I have to fully explain each one again:

Voice Overs - Going from being used to speaking as Brian Bloom/Jennifer Hale [Trooper] to speaking as Tom Spackman/Grey DeLisle [Bounty Hunter].

Companions - The Affection you gained on your Trooper will be completely wiped and you are now forced to rebuild the Affections if you are even able to get the Bounty Hunter's Companions. Also, the Class Specific Companions are picked up THROUGH the Respective Class's Storyline, switching from Trooper to Bounty Hunter means that you did NOT do the Bounty Hunter's Storyline therefore you would not have any Companions [unless you had HK already unlocked.

Ships - Ships are acquired through your Class Story, so if you switched from Trooper to Bounty Hunter, you would not only lose your Trooper Ship & Allegiance Ship Droid but you wouldn't be able to pick up the Bounty Hunter's Ship & Allegiance Ship Droid. Meaning, you will be limited in where & how you travel places.

Equipment - Troopers wield Rifles and BFG's, Bounty Hunters wield Pistols with possibility to Dual Wield. Sure they might "operate" the same, but playing as a Bounty Hunter is fundamentally different from that of a Trooper, especially when the Advanced Classes come into play. Smugglers and Imperial Agents also work differently, more so the Imperial Agent Sniper their fire rate and operation is different from that of their Smuggler Counterpart. Not to mention, Imperial Agents have Rifle/Sniper Rifle and Vibroknife while the Smugglers get Pistols & Shotgun/Dual Pistols so now they are Weapon Less.

Future Stories - Allowing Allegiance Switching will automatically kill ALL Future Class Stories and possibly ALL Future Stories period.

--------------

More:

Worlds that they can visit - If a Trooper who knows where & how to get to Ord Mantell & Tython changes to the Sith Empire has to automatically forget the Location AND how to get there and now is able to not only get to Nal Hutta but also Korriban?

Storyline Period - Jedi Knight, light or dark, had spent all 50+ Levels attacking, killing, underminding the Sith Empire

And so the Sith Empire is supposed to welcome the turned Jedi Knight with welcome arms despite everything that they did? Would the Jedi Knight who would now be a Sith Warrior now be
