I'm probably one of the few people who actually liked all of the JK companions.

As for the topic, I don't think there's a companion so far that I out and out hate but for some reason, Cedrax just annoys me. I think after leveling a BH and JK to 50 with both Mako and Doc, both of my favorites, Cedrax is...meh to me.
It's victory or nothing!

Bowdaar. All dialogues are about him being slave, how it was bad and how he is grateful. Every single dialogue is whining about it. I hate it.

I actually liked them all too. Granted Rusk doesn't have a very good reason to be there other than his commanders going "well, this guy is going to wipe out whole squads if we keep him in a leadership position but he's got political clout and medals, where can we put him that he won't cause any more trouble?" And my Jedi Knight walked by and said "oh hai "

But apart from the weak reason for him being there, and being more pragmatic than my goody-two shoes light-sider, he volunteers for the obvious cluster **** missions without hesitating and I can respect that. I mean it's not like Scourge is FAR more off base from my alignment, but I get along with him, so I can get along with Rusk. And Doc is just there for the glory or something, and I have to wonder at the choice to make him a romanceable companion, but his conversations are funny. T7-01 is super cheerful/loyal and I probably like him even better than HK-47, and Kira turned the sassy snarky stereotypical sidekick into someone who's story I care about.

I am sad that people don't like the Gand on the trooper. I've been a Gand fan since the X-wing series, and was excited about having one on my squad.

Yeah, this is the main reason I love Yuun so much, because of Ooryl Qrygg.

Oh, so he is like that? I am fine with this completely.

Wonder if having a Gand companion in a military setting was a deliberate send up for the lore fans, because if so it worked for me.

I have only completed the trooper and smuggler stories so:

Trooper: I absolutely HATE that Vik guy, I never use him, and would take Jorgen or Yuun as a melee tank instead of him. And he was DRUMMED OUT of the army so That may play a factor into why I hate him.

Smuggler: I do not really like any of the smuggler comps, but that may be because I usually play my smugglers as greedy brats with a heart of gold. this is why I re-rolled my gunslinger into a scoundrel sawbones.
Han Solo: Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

I don't dislike Akaavi in the Smuggler's companions, but she kind of serves no purpose for me. I already have like 2 tanks (Corso and Bowdarr, at least that's how I use them), so I never bring her into battles with me. Plus she doesn't seem to get along with any of my other companions, so she's always commenting on them being weak or something like that. She's just not a good fit.

Kaliyo, on the other hand, is just as annoying--you think you're so awesome, get over yourself already--but I just can't seem to be rid of her. She insists on flirting with me or thinking I'm flirting with her--it seems like half the time I tell her to shut up (which she never does)], she's practically aroused by it, which would be awesome if I didn't find her hideous (and, of course, obnoxious). Kaliyo is that person we all know who thinks they're way, way cooler than they actually are.

She also makes a lousy tank; she draws aggro well enough, but she can barely stand up to a strong breeze. I love absolutely everything about playing a Sniper except Kaliyo.
Yeah, I can't stand Kaliyo.

It seems to me, that every class got at least 1, some got 2 or even three companions, that are totally a waste of disc space...

Jedi Consular: Zenith - that arrogant guy really ruined my nerves. I was there to help him and not only safe his *** but also his cause... and yet he was still behaving like a wookiee.

Smuggler: The thing (aka. wookiee) - I refuse to acknowledge it to have a name. I only name beloved pets. I do not name wump rats or rancors. If I could rid my legacy of just one companion, it would be this thing for sure.

Sith Warrior: The traitor - Seriously, who thought up that storyline? All through, we are killing friends and foes for the slightest kind of failure, for misunderstandings, or just because... and then there is a companion, who is committing treason and doesn't even have the decency to die trying.. and we cannot kill him. we cannot cripple him. Heck, that guy even gave a snide remark, when my warrior refused to marry him.

Trooper: Where to start... my god... the collection of pest and cholera. First we got a grumpy furball... then there is the most ideologically malfunctioning droid I have ever had to listen to. Then we got an explosives specialist, who can only be described as a manical suicide bomber. I swear, if given the chance, this guy would blow Alderaan up, just to see the light show.... and finally there is the ant-guy. When that electronics specialist advised me on the holo, how to disarm the bomb and he was telling me to cut the blue wire... he explained, that the red wire was having a very aggressive coloring... which is a bad thing.. but it was straight in line.. but the blue wire was curling up so visciously... it had to be the blue wire to cut.... seriously? You designed a whole planet story around getting an electronics specialist in your team, who will then decide a life and death scenario based on isolation coloring and a wire being lean or curled? really??

Well.. having done trooper as fourth class I at least know that it cannot possibly grow worse now.

Well Akaavi is technically a melee dps but I found her to be a better tank sometimes than the two designated tanks. Plus, I never felt anything for Bowdaar and Corso started to annoy me by the time I got to Alderaan so she gave me an excuse to bench the both of them

Personality wise, I feel Akaavi fits the smuggler well (at least a DS leaning smuggler) and I love her because she plays an excellent straight man to my smuggler who cracks jokes at every turn. However, she doesn't fit with the overall team because she is a bit of a loner. The only other companion she respects Bowdaar because he's a warrior.

Spoiler


In my opinion, It seems like Akaavi would've fit much better if she was the only companion you got.
It's victory or nothing!
