Until I get used to the controls and actually get to see the 'story' side of things I'll have to be honest and vote for gameplay. At least for now.
It probably won't affect "what" class I choose to roll first
but it will have less weight on future rolls/roles I'd play after my initial one so I can explore the story side of things
So yeah, when you see a gimped smuggler running around like a jackass and can't play for squat.. that's probably me
