My Rattataki Shadow always got attention in groups. "Huh?" "What?" "???"
After the salon was introduced, she's become a Mirialan.
Hold up ! If we save Han now, there won't be anything for us to do at the beginning

Yeah, no one ever notices my all-Chiss lineup, either. Well, except for my Sentinel, and that's probably just because she's in the slave girl outfit.
The n'Sappho Legacy, The Harbinger
Zel'eena, 55 Combat Sentinel
Eleeta, 55 Medic Operative; Fer'eerra, 55 Lightning Sorcerer
All Chiss, all the time, all day, forever.

Consular story is good if you play it from two aspects:

1. You're a typical jedii.

2. You're a Jedi more around the lines of Windu, whose loyalty to the Order and Republic, may drive them to some extremes, despite being good. The choices you make may be heartless, but it is for the greater good.

Chapter 1... hmm, I did like the "adopt a Dromund Kaas accent and act like you own the place" bit on Nar Shaddaa. Otherwise, I didn't dislike or even hate the rest.

Recognize that you are playing an actual Jedi. Doesn't go in swinging lightsabers when talking will do. Tries to save the wicked, bring order and peace. If that's not the kind of character you want to play you will likely be bored.

I played through a Sage recently. I was hesitant about playing a Jedi character because I've done that in so many other Star Wars games that I felt like it was time to do a non-Force sensitive class for my Pub character as well. Still, I love the whole Jedi diplomacy concept and the at least minimal politics involved. Though sometimes the Consular seems wise, at other times he is na´ve/arrogant.

Aside from a couple of dialogue options in which I could tell off the Chancellor, though, I felt like I was forced to willingly be someone's lackey the whole time. Following the Jedi Code is one thing, but acting on the whim of some wannabe Governor of Balmorra is another thing. If I had my way I'd have tossed him out the airlock and let Balmorrans pick their own new leader. The dark side options were also lax, as others have already said.

I did kind of like the whole dark side plague idea. Someone said it was like a nod to the KOTOR 2 story of searching for Jedi Masters and either saving or destroying them. I'd really have liked to see the "Rift Alliance" played up a bit more, though.

What I did like about the Sage in terms of combat was probably mostly due to him being my only Force-sensitive character so far. Aside from that, meh, you get what you should expect when playing as a healer, I suppose.

Join an RP server. Make your own char ideas. rP how you'd like your char to be, and view the actual storyline as a side quest.

No. PvE > rP. rP is just awkward.

If I wanted to RP there are plenty of forums and stuff out there on the internet. I play TOR because I want to play TOR, as in a TOR storyline.

Point is, rP is one suggestion, but it's not the solution for everyone.

If you can't come up with your own head canon for your Jedi Consular, then no, there's really no way to make it fun for you, if you don't like the options given to you for the JC.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry
