I vote this the best Dev Blog so far. Very interesting.

Although its a shame it look like Bounty Hunters will be an Empire exclusive. It makes sense in some ways, and little in others.

I'm not really a fan of the "No class would exist in both factions" thing, mainly because it wouldn't make sense for a 'soldier' type character to exist on one side and not on the other, but it also implies that there will be huge mechanical differences for Jedi/Sith, even though the main things we see them doing in the movies involve neutral things like mind tricks and telekinesis. But I guess we'll see.

I agree TA. I really don't like that BH is Sith Empire exclusive... But I can understand their reasoning behind it. Having to make 8 classes with 16 unique and engaging stories with no duplication between is a tall order.

I noticed they gave a mention that they will not allow neutral at all. That makes me a bit sad. I'd love to be a neutral smuggler. But then as he said, nobody is really neutral. Even if I could be neutral I would probably still hold a bit of friendliness towards the Republic.

I love how much they mention smuggler... perhaps the next class reveal?
