Non-Force Melee?

As far as I can tell, we don't have any true non-Force user melee class. However, are there any Advanced Class / Skill Tree combos that might let me effectively mix in some melee combat on a regular basis?

Maybe the IA/Smuggler has some, but I wouldn't say they are all that much melee-oriented.

I would say a scoundrel is more melee than it is ranged.

Powertech bounty hunters have a good amount of melee. Rocket punch and rocket kick and rocket push and rocket shove and rocket pinch. Most of them involve a rocket.

All of his flame thrower stuff is shortish range, and he has an extending blade.

Operative and Scoundrel are your non-force using melee types. Yeah they use guns, but apparently you can throw a rock farther than rifles and pistols shoot. Their cost-free spam shot went from 30m to 15m and down to 10m by the last bit of beta.

Ya plus they are heavy on defense so you can truly tank things without needing a lightsaber.

Scoundrel with the dirty fighting spec has a fair amount of melee in it I believe.

Scrappers (Smuggler) are melee-oriented. They are probably the equivalent of WoW's Rogue to TOR.

I do believe the Agent Operative AC has melee options in one of the trees.
