What I did:

Assassin - main (tank)
PT (dps)
Jugg (dps)
Sniper

Sage (heals)
Merc (heals)
Scoundrel (heals)
Sentinel

I figured that since the Republic side was already flooded with mostly healers, I'd flood them with 3 more, to troll the imps at the same time

Shadow and Sorcerer.

A Jedi who ignores saber training, and fighting only with the Force feels wrong according to my vision of Jedi philosophy.
Some may say that healing feel better on a Jedi so they are choosing Sage, but I don't think so.
I think a Jedi would rather look for avoiding damage than fixing damage.
And so, choosing the healing path, while being a good choice for a Jedi, doesn't fit a battle Jedi, but rather a back-up Jedi. But we're supposed to be battle Jedi. Back-up Jedi are the one we never hear of, and spend most of the time at the Temple.
I think if the Jedi follows the code, he shouldn't be standing and healing, but rather risking his life to defend or eliminate threats.
So if I add "saber training" to "try to not rely too much on the force" and "may take the damage for others", I get Shadow.

When comparing to the opposite AC for the opposite class, the Sorcerer, we have a Sith who is so obsessed by the Force that he doesn't train his saber skills, isn't bother even a second from using the Force to harm people, and can be cowardly enough to let people die and suffer for him by making his personal meat shield lieve longer with dark rites and Sith alchemy. For me it makes perfectly sense.

As conclusion, even if Assassin may make sense, I think Sage do not. At the same time the Shadow/Sorcerer is a good combination even if Sorcerer is a choice made by default because of the Jedi... so Shadow/Sorcerer was obviously the only option avaliable to me.

Jedi Guardian is more iconic than a Jedi that uses 2 sabers.And an aggressive fighting style with 2 sabers fits more a sith,than a jedi.Also Juggernaut armors and movement are too much robot like.Despite the fact that they tried to copy-paste a vision of Vader,you can't expect every sith to be a cyborg and half-robot.Its ridiculous.

Jedi Shadow and Sith Sorcerer. -

Sith Sorcerer makes more sense because of the story(i won't tell spoilers).While the Consular story still makes sense if you are not a guy that doesn't mostly rely on force abilities,but also uses the lightsaber.The Inquisitor's story is a story about a guy too powerful to use lightsaber at all.A Palpatine type.
Also Force lighting is far cooler than some rubble and little stones being thrown at you.

Operative and Gunslinger. -

Ideally an agent should have both Stealth and a Sniper,but since the game devides it into 2 different classes,its better to have stealth and be awesome(story wise) with silent kills with a knife than use a sniper ALL THE TIME.Being a sneaky guy expert at mele combat and bigger utility makes more sense for the agent.Imperial intelligence agent MUST have a stealth field generator.Running around with nothing but a sniper rifle fits more a guy that is part of the army,not a guy from an intelligence organization and a spy.
The smuggler should be a gunslinger because the scoundrel just doesn't make any sense.Punching giant droids and sith to death is ridiculous.Also the cool Scattergun is only used by 2 abilities=lame.

And also a sniper should be used long range(more than a thousand m) ,not the 35 m max,that is in the game.This range fits more the gunslinger.

Powertech and Commando. -

The bounty hunter should be a combination of a powertech and mercenary ,but since you must chose,its better to be a powertech,It makes more sense.You are a Mandalorian.Doesn't make sense to be a mandalorian and stay static and just launch rockets and missiles.A Mandalorian Warrior must be versatile and flexible,and expert at mele combat(retractable blade,rocket punch).Flamethrowers and Shoulder canon are also immensely awesome.It Makes you feel like Iron Man.Retractable Blade is also cool because of the Predator(from Alien vs Predator).
Both Commando and Vanguard make sense,but since it makes more sense the bounty hunter to be Powertech,i chose this combination.Also the guy that is static and stays in 1 place while shooting should be the Commando,not the mercenary.The gun the Commando uses is huge and heavy and it just make sense for you not to move much.And also the bread and butter for the vanguard- ion pulse ,is a lame ability to look at and listen to.

These are my 2 cents.

Almost have this same thing only one different is I have sage and assassin
Because (your points made sense too just never look at it that way before). I went full healer as sage and I could imagine a sith caring enough to heal people just destroy them. And I picture sith being the stealthy kill people behind there back I just think jedi would be more up front and noble about it

I just don't picture the stealth and the hitting people from behind moves as very jedi like. And sage fits the story more as a healer because

I'm fine with stealth, because infiltrating the ennemy and spying can also be a part of a Jedi work in war times.
I used Tank spec so that I'm not a backstab murderer.

Tank tree works. Middle tree just seems assassin though. And the stealth still just seems weird sure it's tactical to sneak and spy but its hard picturing jedi doing it sense they always seem so upfront and not the sneaking type. But if you're tank tree you don't really use stealth in combat anyways.

Commando/Powertech
- For all the reasons listed before plus PT animations just look so much more Bounty Hunterish than the merc ones IMO. And the Assault Cannon is just awesome.

Sage/Assassin
- Again for the reasons given for the previously plus force lift looks cooler than whirlwind IMO.

Gunslinger/Operative
- In my head the gunslinger just fits the Han Solo model far more than the Scoundrel does and likewise the stealth, etc of the operative fits in with Imperial Intelligence better to me than the Sniper.

The one weakness of this setup is that you will lack a tank on the Republic side if that is important to you. If you do want a tank on each side then I would flip the Sage/Assassin to Shadow/Sorcerer as Shadow tanks are pretty awesome and there is nowhere in the story it doesn't fit, plus the Sorc can do DPS with lightning for the cool animations.
