The Agent/Spy classes are a definite possibility. It'd also be cool if they had the unique ability to hire random mercenaries or bounty hunters.
Subclasses...skill trees...when it comes down to it, I'm betting that there will be the whole Consular or Guardian choice system. This is how much people function with the Force user class system. I just hope that they don't revive the Sentinel class: completely pointless attempt to make a middle ground that was just plain weak.
Prestige classes are a must. You should eventually be able to become a Jedi Master, Sith Lord, Sith Centurion, Republic Commander, Elite Smuggler or Bounty Hunter...etc..
I don't believe that there are going to be sentinels in the games as in the trailer there were only blue and green sabers.
I have a feeling that the trroper class can supbranch into a republic pilot class
