The Star Wars: The Old professional class list shown here are all of the currently available or known playable SWTOR classes. To learn more about each of the classes listed and read an overview of their skills, gear, specializations, game companions, starships and more, click on the class of your choice.
Jedi/Sith - one class. I know they keep saying there's 4 types of Jedi or Sith, but they are prey much all the same, apart from a few differing powers, but they are all 'light sabre wielders'.
Trooper/Agent - Again, the same thing, one good, one bad...with a few differing powers.
And then Smuggler
Now, personally, I think that's very, very limited. I am from the old school days of SWG, where there was once over 30 classes.
Don't get me wrong, I feelthis is going to be one of the best SW games ever...but I'm a little disappointed that they is so little choice, and also, while I'm on the subject, why are classes pre-destined?
Again, in the original SWG, you started as a player, then you progressed into what ever class you wanted to follow AND you can change class any time you wanted.
To see how much work has gone into this game, its goingto be truly epic, but just this thing about the limited classes I find...annoying.
