The Inquisitor's story bad?

I thought the Sith Inquisitor story was well written and refreshing. Binding force ghosts for power is freaking awesome. It puts you one step closer in power to Nihilus or Vitiate and their ability to absorb life force.
"Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

SI's story starts off somewhat cliche'd to me, but the story gets better fast.

unlike the Trooper, JK and Bounty Hunter stories (Unsure of the BH, as I have only just got to Balmorra on my Zabrak chick)

After having done the IA story, everything seems pretty bland, except for the smuggler. I mean the 1 liners and if you are a guy being a total man-ho, that just tickles me to no end.

But SI, got through chapter 1 and moving into chapter 2, not too enthusiastic.

But all those other (often more interesting) parts of your rise to power came across as side-quests, with the Forcewalking as the main thrust.
I couldn't agree more, the whole power base was pushed to one side for the dam ghost thing, now even that i can handle but the fact that after you have to visit 2 planets to cure yourself come on that was wasted i mean belsavis was full of sith and other imperials locked up and perfect chance to free some and get them to follow you and the voss they are unbalanced and doing what Darth Serevin did get mystics to follow you.

Hell if you look at the consular story they do what the inquisitor should have done.

I liked the Si.

I played as a sith lightning sorceress who wasn't evil but was power hungry and wanted to reach the top through manipulation and knowledge of the force. Not through glowstick waving.

The story fit my character perfectly. Especially with the Zash conflict. Two power mad *****es going head to head... Perfect.

I personally drew much enjoyment from my Sith Inquisitor's story. I'd even be willing to run one again some day. I loved the whole rags to riches, and it was fun to play an alien because if someone made fun of your race, you could shoot lightning at them. It's kind of more based around mysteries of the force, which I found interesting. Guess it depends on your preference, but I personally would suggest playing a Sith Inquisitor!
What a crazy random happenstance!

Personally, Ioved the Inquisitor story on my Assassin. I loved getting Ashara because she fit well with my light side Assassin and she is SOOOOOOO HOT!

If you enjoy the Smugglers one-liners, why not the Inquisitors snarky lines? Or is it just a female Inquisitor thing?

I liked the fact that you didnt beat the antagonist in just one fight.. him running off and taunting me again just made me hate him more and more (and that was needed since his entrance into the story carried no emotions at all for me)

The comics actually make it worse. The Thanaton of the game is a totally different character from the Thanaton of the comics. Comic!Thanaton would have made a far better enemy. I think they also indicated Comic!Thanaton's discoveries about the Emperor would play a role in the SI story, but they didn't.
