So funny how different peoples opinions can be. I love my SI companions, they are by far my favorite.

Yes skadge is a bully and complete retard but I like the feel being a LS bh gives when I use him. I makes me feel like he's my pet and i am tring to teach him not to bite everything he sees. I least like Corso or Quinn.

Hey, don't go ************ on ol' Khem... Khem Val is awesome, he looks like Nemesis from Resident Evil, thats why I use him as my main companion and he's a fantastic tank. Most annoying would have to be either Blizz because I just want to kick him or Ashara because she's so goodie two shoes it drives me mental. Stupid woman... come to the dark side already, at least with Jaina you get the choice to corrupt her. Ashara is just a whiney Jedi kid.

No I mean androgynous, it pertains more closely to sexuality than ambiguous, which is a more general use of the meaning. A simple google search would have prevented this foolishness.

Not once during their lead up stories did I think, "Oh, this guy's cool, I'd love to have him come aboard and help me on my journey." Not. Once. I thought they were rather forgettable, to be honest, and then, out of the blue, they are suddenly a crew mate. Oh, I got that they were "supposed" to be cool, especially Zenith. But the idea was sort of just shoved down my throat, it felt forced and contrived. You can't just call a character cool, and suddenly they're cool. It doesn't work like that.

Their characters are underdeveloped during the lead up stage to you acquiring them as a companion. If I asked you to describe Zenith, based on what you knew about him BEFORE you progressed his companion story through affection, what would you say? "He's a freedom fighter." Uh, huh, and? "Um... he's a passionate freedom fighter?" Same with Iresso. "Lt. Iresso a commander in the Republic army." That's it. Is that really enough for me to develop a bond with these characters? I don't believe it is.

And then there's Nadia. The fact I receive the only potential love interest for a male Consular at level 42 (-ish, I couldn't solo the boss before then) is unforgivable. Her entire story, and romance, feels rushed. You gain so many affection points with her per conversation that you're constantly running back to your ship to advance her plot, and it just doesn't feel like a natural progression. She easily could have been added as a companion in the level 34-35 range, and I could have skipped Zenith altogether (or Iresso, or both, take your pick.)

Instead of Zenith or Iresso, I could have picked up a rejected Voss Mystic (who I could then train in the Jedi arts, perhaps? Sounds interesting to me) or perhaps converted one of the Children of the Emperor to my cause and added them to my list of companions (I'm no stranger to unconventional companions, after all.) I could have left Tython or Coruscant with a Padawan, there were several I met on my travels that actually had personalities. Or I could have taken Master Tykan's Padawan, Aris, from Taris. He was in no state to continue training her, and she had a motivation to come along (seek out those who wronged her master.) Lots of options, but instead I get saddled these two bland soldier/fighters.

-Macheath.
Agree and with your suggestions. Although I kind of like the Iresso idea, every jedi should have his trooper . Also Nadia for me does not make it too much and she comes way too late. She could be replaced from your suggestions. Tharan is ok but not as cool as knight's doc (especially if you play a female knight), everytime i hear him shouting "kolto incoming" i just can't help but laugh. Zenith who? :P

Why all the hate for Qyzen? If you read his dialogue, you see that he is actually an insightful individual and the only good trandoshan that is visible in star wars. He just as a different view of morality.

I don't really hate any of my companions. I don't love all of them, but I don't hate them.

I've never hated a character of fiction more then I do Mako.

Hahaha Kaliyo might be my favorite companion. I loved her story. Love her attitude too.

Because the "noble savage" character archetype is silly and overdone in fiction.
