I am totally blown away with this story. I am at the beginning of the quesh part, and so far the agent story has been superb! Don't get me wrong, the other stories on my republic characters are good(I admit I found the consular story somewhat boring though...sorry bioware). But, can whoever wrote the agent story please also write the trooper story in the next addition please? That would be fantastic. And please do this before Christmas, because we all know the world revolves around me... Thank you whoever wrote the agent story.

Freed still does Star Wars writing nowadays, but it's on a freelance basis. He seems to mostly handle comics these days.

But I agree, the Agent's story is great and Freed deservedly gets a lot of praise for it.

The only stories I haven't finished yet are the Consular and Smuggler, and so far the Imperial agent is hands down my favourite. Not my favourite class to play but definitely the story I have enjoyed the most.

Agree 100%, very good job on that one.

I think it helps that there wasn't a strong point of reference to make it match up to already in the movies or books(smugglers needed to feel like Han Solo, etc). It still had problems, like the accents being terrible at times, I couldn't tell that my agent was faking accents at first and had to have that explained to me after the fact. And I still think it was sloppy. Also choices don't matter. It was still decent overall.

If you're involved with your character's development and moral journey, then yes, the choices do matter a great deal.

If all that isn't that important to you, then no, the choices don't really matter because you have to get from Point A to Point B and players instinctively feel that and try and veer off toward Point Potato.

Vandicus is correct. The Imperial Agent story was written by Alexander Freed. I remember after I finished it (my first 50 at launch was an Operative) I made it a point to find his desk at the office and tell him how much I loved it.

Keep playing other class stories though, they are all great!

Not what I meant but you can take it that way.

You're only on Quesh? Strap yourself in tight. It gets better.

If I didn't hate the Operative mechanics so much, I'd play through that story over and over again.
