    I was looking at the videos for the different classes and I was starting to get the feeling that everyone was just going to be a Jedi.  I'll probably play one because the other classes don't interest me much, except for a smuggler if I can actually transport goods across the galaxy and it's not boring as hell.  My main point was, I can't see why anyone would want to play another class and if 90% of players are Jedi that might cause a problem.  
     
    I was wondering who here wants to play as a non-force sensitive character?
     
     
    Edit:  I'm including Sith when I said Jedi, they are just evil Jedi.

    Well I'll probably play a Jedi / Sith because, like you, I find myself uninterested in the other classes' abilities and play-styles.

    I don't know if I'll actually be playing this game but if I did I almost certainly would not be playing a Jedi, with my good guy character at least.  A badass Sith is very appealing though.

    Yah, but not many people are going to want to get multiple characters to high levels.  That'd be quite a time commitment.

    Bounty Hunter for me. I might make a Sith Warrior too, but I'm afraid they'll be overplayed by the 12 year old anime crowd.

    I'm most likely going to play as a smuggler, and two of my friends are going to play troopers, so it isn't going to be all jedi's. Ideally I'm going to name my character Olos Nah just to piss the die-hard fans off.
    However I can definitly see that overpopulation is going to be an issue.

    I'd be tempted to play a droid also, that would be awesome.  It would be especially cool if you could be neutral at first and choose a side if you were a droid.

    I'm much more interested in the Trooper/Bounter Hunter classes. I will probably also roll a Jedi Knight and Sith Warrior depending on how many character slots they give me.

    Oh yeah. I imagine Jedi/Sith will freaking dominate the servers during the first few...years. Then eventually the other classes will become noticable just because people are bored of the Jedi/Sith

    @Skytylz: 
    Didn't even think of that aspect. That would be really neat. Like you would also be able to fill almost any role depending on what type of droid you are. Medic druid = healer, HK= dps, and so on.
     
    You would be able to buy droid bodies to change roles.

    I'm not sure.  I think they created the Jedi Knight/Consular and the Sith Warrior/Inquisitor with the idea that a lot of people would be playing Force-using classes in mind.  It lets people swing around their lightsabers while still being fully capable of filling out a variety of important MMO-centric roles.

    While I imagine Force-Sensitive characters (Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor) will outnumber the other classes - I feel like the ones that get the least love are the Trooper on the Republic side and Imperial Agent on the Sith side. The other two classes, Bounty Hunter and Smuggler, have a strong backing by those who have their own fantasy of being the 'Boba Fett' or 'Han' or... just want to be that rugged bad-ass/sneaky son-of-a-bitch. 
     
    I don't think percentages of 90% are a real worry, there's a variety of people out there who want to either fufill their Fett or Solo fantasy as well as people who simply want to be "in demand" and play those classes that are not as popular. As far as PvE - between Companions and the duel roles each class can play (via Advancement) - I'm sure the game will be fine. Raids and PvP may be highly improved with a mixed group, though, of folks specialized in what they do best.

    Actually they have confirmed smugglers and imperial agents will also have healing abilities though not as strong as consulars/inquisitors.

    Yeah I'm going for a healer, if possible not a force related one.
    But if not, I'll just go Consular.
     
    Lets hope they can be Twi'Leks and dual wield, if only for the looks!

    Twi'leks are a confirmed playable race. I'm not sure if certain Force-Users get a particular style of Lightsaber wielding, but the Consular will at least feature the Double-bladed Lightsaber. I know the Sith Warrior has been shown with Dual Lightsabers, so it is at least designed into the game.

    I am going with a smuggler. I have always found the idea of being a Han Solo a lot cooler than being a Luke Skywalker or Obi Wan. With that said though my main will be a smuggler but I will check out a few Jedi and Sith classes. I just hope Bioware does a good job of balancing out all the classes to make all of them interesting in their on way. I have faith in them to deliever though. I already give them props for giving me my own group of companions and a spaceship I can customize.

    @DeviantJoker: 
     
    I know, I know and I know!
     
    But nothing has yet been shown of race combo's, so that might be up there still (which is crazy if you ask me, almost any sentient being can be force sensitive).
     
    I'd be satisfied with a normal green saber, but if it's possible to dual wield, Imma do it!
