    I don't know that I can vote for just one... I like the flexibility that each of them give, depending on which type of character I want to play or which type of Prestige Class I'd like to hit...

    I don't know about you guys, but Scoundrel is my favorite base class. You get tons of skill points, the majority of skills are class-skills, and at level 2 you get Lucky, which helps out ALOT!!

    I can't realy say that I have a favorite class. Like dp4m said, the class that I choose depends on what I plan to do with the character.

    I agree. I can enjoy roleplaying a Jedi, a scoundrel or a noble depnding on the character I have in my mind.

    The best character I ever played started off as a Fringer. I just wanted to create an idealistic young man from the Outer Rim and see what would happen to him over the course of the campaign. Idealism doesn't last when you get involved with the Senate and see the corruption of the Republic. He ended up very jaded and full of anger. I miss Galen.

    Jedi Guardian. I like the responsibility of playing a character like a JG. I would have said Consular; I like them but haven't played one yet.

    And who voted for Tech Specialist? [face_laugh]

    I voted for soldier, but it really depends on what type of character I would want to play. Most times Sol. or Scoundrel work best for my tastes.

    I like the foundation and story ability that noble provides plus it is always to talk your way out of a fight ;)

    Scoundrels are where it's at. 8+int skill points is something you just can't beat in any game that isn't completely focused on combat. The jack-of-all-trades is my favorite kind of character.

    There is no way I could choose just one, so I voted tech since that is what I am playing right now. Nobody else in my group seems to understand the power of a good slicer in the galaxy.

    Gotta be the Tech Specialist.

    How many "kick-in-the-door" type players do you hear say, "Man, I can't wait till I'm like 20th level with my Soldier/Jedi Guardian and I'm gonna get a mastercraft +3 heavy battle armor/lightsaber."

    And the guy playing the Tech Specialist says, "Where are you going to get them from?"

    Tech Specialists: owning and operating the best weapons and armor since 2001.

    Man, the force adepts are where its at when it comes to the force. Jedi are held back by the rules of the councial and the fear of DSP. Sith are held back because 99.9% of the galaxy wants to kill them. Force adepts have no rules regarding what is right or wrong, and can use some skills that are very usefull and underrated. My favorite trick is to use move object to pull the pins out of the stormtroopers grenades... while they are still on the troopers belt.

    The rules of the Force are still the rules of the Force. What you do may not be constrained by the Jedi Council, but if you get enough DSPs, your character is just as out-of-play... ;)

    Jedi Consular for me. I love playing Jedi and I find the Consular gives me a lot more versatility. They're no lightweights in combat and they get more skill points than Guardians. Not to mention how much easier it is to go into some of the other Jedi classes with the Consular. The only problem is that the fewer vitality points tend to make the Force a little less useful in the lower levels.

    If I'm not playing with the Force, though, I go with the Scout. Good number of skills and great class features. In a pinch, I often take a level of scout because it grants a starship operation feat at first level.

    Scout if I'm not playing a Force user or Jedi Guardian.

    I'll pick Jedi Consular if I want to end up a Jedi Investigator.

    For me, I'd have to say it's definately the Jedi Guardian. With the right GM, playing a Jedi can be very challenging to play and not fall to the darkside. A close second would have to be the Tech Specialist (No I wasn't the one who voted for the Tech Spec). The idea of playing a Scotty type character in Star Wars, where technology is extraordinarily prevalent and common place, has a real nice appeal.

    Noble. They get a lot of money and are able to become some pretty cool prestige classes.

    Jedi Guardian, definitely. I almost got away with completely derailing a convention game within ten minutes by judicious and intelligent use of Jedi Guardian powers. "What, the McGuffin is trying to get away in a landspeeder? Fine, I activate Force Speed and cut through the chassis with my lightsaber..." :cool:
