So far, BH has had a pretty awesome storyline. Mako is cool, Gault is cool, Torian is ok, Blizz is a little beast, but I hate me some Skadge. He is the most worthless companion ever.

I've played 3 so far.

Sith Sorc - Khem is a great first companion for a healer, but he's so bland and his look never changes. Andronikos is fun as a companion and he can surprisingly tank pretty well. The storyline is pretty awesome through Act 1. The female voice actor for this class is amazingly fantastic. She's got just a little bit of devilishness to her lines, it's awesome. I could listen to her all day long. "That's not fear I smell, is it?" :swoon:

Imperial Operative - Not a fan of Kaliyo at all. The story line is by far the best I've seen. So much fun, and going dark side makes you effing DARK. I legitimately feel bad at some of the decisions I've made. The female voice actor for this class is also fantastic. She doesn't have as much emotion in her lines as the SI, but it works well for the class.

Jedi Guardian - T7 annoys me to no end, and why this class wasn't given a healing companion to start is beyond me. Kira is a lot more fun, but again no way to heal yourself. The story is good, if a little bland. I love being able to mock politicians constantly in Coruscant. Both voice actors are fantastic for this class and it was a really tough choice.

I am loving the Commando storyline so far, though I'm still in act 1 on Alderaan so I'm not sure how relevant that is. The companions are ok, perhaps nothing to write home about but certainly not bad.

Only one ive played is IA, Kaliyo is pretty cool but im not fond of the second companion guy. End of ACT I and beginning of ACT II was some of the best storytelling ive seen in the game.

2v-R8:

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH
Why can't he ever shut up, he is worse than Jar Jar binks.
There is no way to get around this pest, every time I enter the ship he bothers me.
Every time I kill a mob he repeats himself.
This is by far the most annoying companion.

This character can go down in gaming history as one of the most annoying characters ever made.
That included abomination like Tingle/Slippy/Baby Mario and the freaking dog from duck hunt


I find most characters so/so aside from Talos up to now.
But the droid is just beyond bad.
That said SI quest line is epic.

I know that Vette does a serious load of damage.

Hell, if we only have 3 people on, we'll bring her over a pug.

I have played the trooper and the Imperial agent. I cannot say the trooper storyline was bad... it just wasn't good.

As for the Imperial Agent, we certainly got some love in our story-line. So far, it is the only story-line i have found in which the pragmatic choices are the best rewarded. Make the pragmatic choice and you get rewarded for it, not simply kill everything/ save the princess choices.

yes, i sacrificed 10k people for victory, but my character doesn't have to revel in his power or cry about the job. IA has to be open to dark, you are an assassin, but there is plenty of gray throughout the story-line.

Simply amazing writing, and great voice acting.

Love T7 - he's my own R2D2 Story is okay, nothing exciting but could be worse. Also playing a smuggler, Corso Riggs is annoying as hell!!! Story however is great, loved how that old guy tried to get me (playing female). Love playing as a female version of Han Solo

Super true!

I love the femInquisitor VA her delivery (at least the way Im playing her primarily light side) is perfect. She sounds so put upon. And yeah, the story, through Act 1 is amazing and Revel is a great character thus far. I only just hit Act 2.

Ditto for the VA for the Imperial Agent Jo Wyatt is amazing and frequently hilarious, and the story thus far (as well as the gameplay for the Operative AC) is incredible. I like Kaliyo well enough, even though shes basically Jack.
