The BEST class story line

So far I've only played a consular and bounty hunter, and for me, the BH story is much more engaging and fun. It makes a real difference about how you feel when you play.

I'm really interested to see what others think about their class storylines?

For me the consular was too goodie goodie and the story line feels a little insignificant (though I know others disagree)
The BH is all tough guy and cheeky, I like that.

I would like to know others opinions on this myself, seeing as how I made a similar thread several days ago. But perhaps others, including myself, haven't played enough different ones to truly know yet.

Having played through the prologue of every class bar Consular, I personally believe the feeling of being a Trooper or Agent provides much more excitement. The Agent really makes you feel like you're involved in something big, and the Trooper storyline makes you feel strong for the Republic.

The problem with the trooper is it's so unoriginal. I seriously don't think there's a story in there that's even slightly original. Not to mention, the dialogue for light side is pretty lame. Though to be fair, the act endings are worth it, it's overall still really fun.

Jedi Knight easily has the most epic story, as well as the most important story to the Star Wars universe. He accomplishes the biggest things. Thing about it is that it's not super original, although it's not typical either.

Sith Warrior is really, REALLY entertaining, light or dark you're in for some fun. It also has a very engaging story (not quite as much for act II but it's still a good act).

Imperial Agent easily has what someone like a writer would consider the "best" story. But it's important to keep in mind that it's all subjective.

From a purely objective standpoint, I'd have to say that Imperial agent has the "best" (I speculate this is because the Imperial Agent isn't directly based off of any Star Wars character, they had to make you feel like Darth Vader in SW story, or Luke Skywalker in Jedi Knight, Han solo in Smuggler etc. The Imperial agent you just had to be like a spy, which gave them a lot more room to do a good story, but that really is just a guess) while Jedi Knight has the most rewarding, and the biggest sense of "wow, this is epic" but that's just me.

I've played Sith Inquisitor and Imperial Agent. Personally, I think Imperial Agent has the best story/quest so far. Sith Inquisitor is pretty by the book Light/dark Side stuff, you start out on Korraban, and climb the Sith corporate ladder. The quest itself is very predictable, do errand for this sith lord, Prove yourself to that Sith lord, get noticed by the big boss, blah blah blah... Nothing surprising.

But Imperial Agent gets you to play from a very different angle of the Star War universe. Since most SW games and movies are focused on the struggle of Jedi and Sith, being an imperial agent is actually very refreshing. Like it's said in a previous post, you really feel that you're something big. You have your mysterious boss, your reserved handler and a whole array of shady characters you need to deal with. I can only speak for myself, but I really feel like a field operative, I may not be the strongest or the toughest, and my methods are questionable at best, but eventually, I do feel that I act from behind the scene and I actually make a difference. Of course... logically speaking, I know the world I've been on doesn't really change, same quests are given out to other players, but some times I can get pass that and really role play.

My only wish is to have more companions....

The Agent is by far the best storyline that I have played with so far.

From chapter 1 to chapter 3 it keeps a good strong story going, chapter 3 is a little weaker in story till you get to Voss, but then it has some cool moments where your really interested in playing the character. But, you should play a male IA, cus Kaliyo>any other female companion in the game.

Unfortunately I have only really played the Si as my other character, though I did get her to almost the end of the 2nd chapter, I found it soo dull I was more interested in my companion and world story arcs than my own class storyline. Seriously, some one needed to get fired for writing this class.

I am probably going to either roll a BH or Smuggler next, some how I doubt the Jedi classes look that great for storyline, although the JK female companion might tempt me to try that out.
In your pants. I'm alluding to your priorities being in your pants. Like, your wiener or weird lady parts that no one understands because they're all tucked in. That's what I was going for. -Coyote

Imperial Agent is fun if you're doing it solo. Unfortunately for the most time I'm running grouped with my Bounty Hunter friends and he gets pretty annoyed. He does two of his class quests in the time it takes me to do one. The story is great, but it is irritating when I do a quest, then have to holocall my Watcher, then have to run all the way back to the HQ to make a full report. As my friend puts it, IA story is mostly running and reporting. Not very multiplayer-friendly.

Have played Jedi Consular to lv 25, trooper to 20, BH 50, Sith Warrior to 42 (currently playing)

I stopped play both Rep characters because of the really boring storys up to their level's.

*side note: Both Rep are females, while both Empire are male*

The BH were extremely fun up to 40-ish, then it started to get less interesting, or be more specific. After Belsavi it got less fun.

Sith Warrior - little less fun then BH up to when you become Lord, Then it gets better! *no spoiler*

The companions play a nice part in this aswell. Both SW and BH gets interesting and enjoyable companions.

My side of it so far.

Youtube class stories while you are grinding those mobs. Especially the classes you know you never will play.
They are like 7 hours+ long for each class.

Imperial agent is one of the best,
This is the one i watched, a light side Imperial agent female, from start to finish in his one channel.

Bioware will have me hooked for years because I want to play all of the stories, and experience all of the different ways of playing!

I've never played an MMO before and the only reason this drew me in was Star Wars + Bioware = awesome game with great stories. I'm also a completionist so taking ages to get through the single player aspects of story/grinding etc. currently a lvl25 smuggler and the story is quite thin on the ground but I can see it beginning to build...
