I very much enjoyed the last chapter of the consular though the ending was a bit meager. Honestly though, compared to the JK ending, most endings are meager.

Smuggler rates lowest for me, never felt the epicness I like so much.

DS Trooper was a bit meh for me. Seriously the things I did should have gotten me kicked out of the army and all you get is a slap on the wrist...BUT one of the funniest lines came from my DS Trooper: "Ill remember that next time Im a wompa", hehe played that five times over.
which out-of-context makes no sense. Don't get me wrong I'm sure in-context is may be funny/whatever...but just as you type it here...means nothing.

Ugh. Those two and the BH are seriously a major step down in quality from the rest.

I feel the same, Consular all the way
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from… save one.

2nd) Consular, first chapter is slow but has possibly the strongest end chapter of the four. (Inquisitor)

3rd) Trooper, best prologue of the four rep stories but fails to build on it and the theme gets very repetitive. (Bounty Hunter)

4th) Jedi Knight, you are the chosen one, possibly the most cliché filled storyline of the eight with pretty obvious ending. (Warrior)


To be honest the basic feel of the story line has a close correlation with their Imperial mirror. So if there is an Imperial class you enjoyed the story of there's a good chance the mirror will be for you with maybe the exception of the Jedi Knight. Loved the Sith warrior story, JK left me cold.
I've not finished the Jedi Knight story, but I can't argue about the order of the others, The smuggler has some great little twists for you to find in conversation options, and the consular story had a strong finish. But I never took a shine to the trooper story, it felt the same all the way through, which was a shame, especially since the class itself is good.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Smuggler. It wasn't filled with your usual overblown, fantastical heroics like the JK storyline. Being an ordinary, run of the mill thug with patriotic fervor, and some great hilarity on the side.

And the Trooper story did make me mad but not for the reasons you describe. The trooper faces some untenable situations inside and outside of the Senate Chamber. It did make me mad when, well, politics got in the way. It made me mad when it became obvious that for many, troopers are just pawns in the game. But... eliciting that kind of reaction is also what made it a good story. I truly felt their plight.
That's one of the things too, I never felt like so much of a grunt as when I was the trooper. I suppose that could be taken as feeling 'realistic', but to use the word of another poster, it lacked 'epicness'. There were parts that weren't a complete loss. I enjoyed meeting and dealing with the SIS Agent Jonas Balker. I keep hoping that maybe they'll add him as an alternative romance companion for the trooper. Then it might be a tad more interesting, but to me trooper is like a soup with no spices, just veggies and a little chunk of meat for the lady trooper (guess its close to lunch...food analogy lol). Males had an interesting side story, that made you think a bit.

That was another nice thing about the Smuggler story, the feeling that you are "free" and more of a normal person. You aren't part of a big organization, you weren't some grunt doing his/her job.

This reminds me of a downside of playing Smuggler though (at least for me) -- it could sometimes seem rather absurd outside of your class quests. Why, oh why, is that Jedi/soldier/important person asking my sassy Smuggler and her farm-boy boyfriend to go blow up a heavily fortified Imperial base? What does she look like, a Jedi? Or an elite military unit, like Havoc Squad?

After reading all your thoughts about how the different stories felt for you guys, I decided to roll both a JK and a JC to level 10 as I wasn't able to decide which one I wanted. I felt like these two were closest to what I wanted to play as a light side republic character.

I didn't hate Consular as much as I expected to given how negative the feedback was... although I'll admit some characters and dialogues aren't doing much to drag me in. There's also this thing about not being able to NOT hear Nathan Drake every time the character speaks.

The knight on the other hand seems just like what everybody describe. Typical heroic stuff, very good but not particularly original. I'll still probably go with that however, it's good for what it is.

Thanks again to every one who replied, it was a big help to me. I hope some day I can get enough free time to try them all !
