Yeah I'm either going to be a Jedi Consular with healing, or a tank.

I heard that the Imperial Spy class can disguise themself to be indistinguishable to both factions.

Right on, if thats what you are going to pick then I guess ill pick a DD class to balance us till others fill in the rest. I have never been able to be a magic user in any MMO, I can just never seem to get it right -_-

FYI, I'm going to kill you on sight with my Sith Warrior.  Repeatedly.  I will camp the respawn point and murder you endlessly until you rage quit.  And I'd totally be in-character too.

You can't win, Parn. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

"The reality is that there are so many different types of Jedi, not all Jedi are alike"

They talk about how your Jedi Character can have all kinds of personality, from heroic like Luke Skywalker to Vengeful like Anakin.

Jesus this game is going to own

edit: WTF the Consulor has a stealth type of play, a support/control type, or a DPS type, healing too.

this game is just nuts.

Heroic Jedi or Badass Diplomat? FUUUUUCK

Interesting rant.  Whether it's the real deal or not is up for debate, but $300 million on this game?  Holy shit.
