I am trying to get back into Swtor and do a brother/sister thing in the legacy. I currently have a female trooper and a male smuggler (both Cyborgs if that is important), but I am unsure of whether I should stick with them or re-roll as a male bounty hunter and a female imperial agent.

any ideas would be good. I have beaten the smuggler and trooper stories, but liked them much more than their imperial counterparts.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that they both would be overall light sided.

Anyone? Might as well stick with Trooper (Female Vanguard) and Smuggler (Male Gunslinger). Though male Mercenary (Pyrotech) and female Operative (Lethality or Medicine) sound cool too.

Well, honestly it's just personal preference. The IA story is quite good. The Smuggler story is pretty fun, mostly for dialogue.

Well, the dialogue, and I feel a sense of the truly unsung hero in the smuggler. The Agent just feels like USA's CIA meets Star Wars. I decided to have a Mirialan Smuggler, in case I can still play it when I go Preferred Status.

What I wanted to know, is whether I should stick with the classes I like, or try something else.

Have both your character belong to the same faction? I mean wouldn't it be better to play them on different faction, so that you get mor evariance? I would suggest Imperial Agent and Trooper.

I have a male and a female. just felt right to have them on the same side. I also tried a trooper and an agent at the same time before, and it felt wrong.

You cannot know how much you will like a class until you have played it a bit. Have you tried a smash monkey (such as a Jug or Guardian) yet? Good fun, and as a light-side male Sith warrior you can have some great interactions with Vette. Maybe a brother/sister Warrior/Inquisitor would work for you.

The pub side strikes me as full of two-faced politicians using the ends to justify some pretty nasty means.
The Sith, to me, seem more honest, and it makes running a light-side Warrior or Inquisitor pretty enjoyable IMHO.

I know, but overall light-sided/light leaning republic sounds much better. Plus, I can't get into simple bounty work or "James Bond"/"Black Widow" stuff.

I have played all the classes, and the Smuggler and Trooper seem the only ones that I can get into for some reason. I think it might have something to do with opposite class roles and genders. Female Vanguard=Male mercenary, not male Operative, which would equal a female Bounty Hunter.

Never really perceived Imp side as more honest. For me it is usually harder to play on Imp side, but I find that Smuggler and BH is the least ideology bound classes. For me playing LS on Imp side is more rewarding than playing DS on the Pub side. But I overall prefer neutral, unfortunately, game is not nice to a neutral player.

For the male-female thing, I always look at the fist mentor, the crew and the antagonist. For me it was no question that a Smuggler is a girl, because her confrontations with the antagonists is so much more fun cross-gender.

The first mentors in IA and SW made it a lot of fun to play a female as well. Consular was the only exception, because despite the mentor being a female, it is the most enjoyable cast for the personalities and looks of the male companions.

On the other hand, Inq is the only class I want to play first with a male, and feel very uncomfortable to play with a female at all.

When I switch between the characters, I always have a few minutes to have to remember who does what how, usually by attacking the wildlife. There is also a lot of flexibility in terms of the skill trees.,, I know, you invest a lot of time into a character, but the first world takes maybe a few hours, and I love all of them, so it may be worth your while to make a test run, and then just delete the toons if they do not click? I spent a couple of hours setting a male Chiss IA, and just could not play with him. Didn't work... but if you don't try, how do you know?

Anyway, I say again, give a shot to the new classes!
