I've heard a lot of people say they thought the Consular was based on Yoda. I guess to an extend I can see that as a foundation perhaps, but as I've played a Consular I think its more based off Obi Wan.

After Obi-Wan killed Darth Maul, Yoda granted him the rank of Jedi Knight because he was the first Jedi in 1,000 years to kill a Sith. Later he became a Jedi Master. Having said that, the game isn't just like the movies. Assassins can use Force Lightning but you never saw Maul use that, etc. Some of the movie characters are two classes combined, so Obi-Wan really is like a Consular and Knight rolled into one.

A lot of the movie characters don't roll into a single class (particularly the major Jedi/Sith). The Inquisitor is Maul/Sidious based, and the Warrior is based on Vader. The names themselves are a bit misleading, because in some cases they mean completely different things in Star Wars (e.g. Jedi Knight being a rank, basically meaning said Jedi isn't an apprentice or a master).

I picture Leia as (having the skillset of) an IA.

Fixed, and I have no idea what they based Consulars on.

Consular is definitely Yoda. If Yoda were a normal sized race it'd be easier to see.

Agent is supposed to be based off of Tarkin I guess..I don't really see it because he never fought in the movies.

Obi-wan acted more like a consular in Episode 2, being sent out to investigate the clone production and separatist situations. He was sent as an ambassador rather than a warrior.

He just happened to be really good at fighting. However, the Ep3 novel declares that he never mastered a particular Lightsaber fighting form. Mace Windu comments that this is why he was able to defeat uh.. you know, the wheezing four saber robot guy - because he wasn't mentally locked in to a specific form, and that dude killed jedi by learning their form and countering it. This does suggest that he wasn't trained as a warrior.

Also, on the Death Star in Ep4, he takes a very cautious approach to Vader, using Force powers to distract Stormtroopers rather than confronting them.

He used the force push thing against the trade droids and stuff as well.

So basically, if he used a double-bladed lightsaber, it would be a no-brainer.
