it still blows my mind to this day that the original galaxy-spanning threat that the jedi and sith had to unite to defeat in that game are the weird lumpy warrior servitor aliens (esh-kha) left over by the mysterious extinct alien race whose society was entirely devoted to producing weird plot devices (rakata)

oh yeah the emperor isn't really a sith, he's actually a body-swapping spirit from the other side of the galaxy, and his children lead an invasion of robot drone battleships and conquer everyone

yes and no. you can play F2P, you probably want to sub for a month because it gets you a bunch of permanent unlocks (including like half the game's story), and hardcore players (raiders, PVPers) have to subscribe to do those things

i don't remember these guys from my inquisitor playthrough. granted most of my inquisitor playthrough was spent regretting choosing to be a sheev instead of a maul.

having to actually fight all the adds in the hallways did really get me in the mood for those dark side options to electrocute motherfuckers

they don't have any role in the class stories!

that was another thing about SWTOR. (almost) every planet had two main plots to follow: your class's story, which was generally pretty interesting, and the planet story that every player of your faction could do. the faction stories were pretty boring, and they built up to establishing these really boring millennia-old threats that the jedi and sith were going to have to unite to fight in the endgame group content.

however, after 1.0, they stopped adding anything for the class stories.

Dear God why, the sorcerer was insanely great at slaughtering everything in their path in electric fury. They may be more fragile but that barely mattered considering how easy it was to kill almost everything before it reached you, the lightsaber was practically decoration more than something you worried about actually using.

LS Sith Inquistor just never really appealed to me like LS Sith Warrior, probably because my read on it was the Inquisitor came off as more too lazy to be evil rather than someone with nobility utterly infuriating everybody who had Sith pegged like LS Warrior. Dark side on the other hand was utterly over the top black humor which was amazing at times, especially the electrocute options. I've never really done any of the dickish options for my companions though, even the evil PCs struck me as being smart enough not to antagonize the people who knew where they slept.

jedi knight and sith warrior are the protagonists. sith inquisitor, imperial agent, and smuggler are generally considered the best class stories. jedi consular is funny if you play as dark side but not good. trooper is ridiculously out of genre as a star wars story, which would be interesting if it wasn't boring hooah claptrap. bounty hunter is some F-grade fanfiction bullcrap.

advanced classes are your actual class., in the way you'd pick warrior or mage or druid in WOW, and the republic and imperial versions of each class work similarly. commando/mercenary and guardian/juggernaut are by far the easier classes to play, while shadow/assassin and sentinel/marauder are the hardest. sage/sorcerers are basically typecast as healers outside of leveling content. every class can either tank or heal except for sentinel/marauder and gunslinger/sniper.

tldr probably roll a guardian or juggernaut.

Story-wise, I like Jedi Knight because it feels like the most Star Wars-y but Imperial Agent is also loads of fun.

Gameplay-wise, Trooper/BH, Agent/Smuggler and Sorc/Consular is tad boring because you are essentially a turret (some specs are a bit mobile tho).

I love melee Jedi/Sith because it feels more involved.

I admit, I like the Lightside Sith Warrior in SWTOR a lot.

It's just a constant series of reminders that compassion can be as powerful a motivator as anger.

I was very disappointed that there's no achievement for jumping into the sarlaac pit.

the jedi knight plot was ridiculous. Every light side character either dies or turns dark, and every dark side character either dies or turns light. Also iirc you become the new emperor, then turn lightside again.

My agent was 90% light side and was really fun. LS agent is basically the competent spy route while DS is mostly being a dick. LS empire loyalist was the best part of the game since you save the empire from ruin by the pettiness of the sith and jedi. Also rogue archetype healing was unique and fun.

I love how almost NOBODY can understand them; everyone's so used to Sithy McMurder warriors that your cool pragmatism just drives them, Jedi especially, utterly insane. Definitely was more interesting that Light Side Inquisitor from what I played of it before I lost interest in TOR. The LS Warrior felt like someone with an inner honor code even if they did terrible things for the Empire, but the LS Inquisitor just came off not as some good guy but a "slacker Sith" who just found being evil to be too much work. Which was funny admittedly, but not nearly as good as the Warrior (DS Inquisitor though is rightly held up as some of the best evil PC writing around, you can eat ALL the scenery and shoot lightning cackling like a madman, and you spend a lot of your evil being mean to other evil bastards so it stays fun).

Think the title was "Worm Food"? Been a while. I always got it because there was a quest right around the Sarlaac and the fastest way back to town was to hop in and respawn really.
