At 41 as a Sith Warrior Juggernaut, unstoppable is not the first word that comes to mind. Single targets are fine, but groups (boss/elite with strongs) definitely still pose a problem, both in terms of survivability and holding aggro.

In my brief experience with group play as a low level Trooper Commando DPS running a 4 man Heroic and a Flashpoint, pulling aggro away from the tank is certainly an issue for DPS players. Steer clear of using any AOEs when engaging groups of elites. Also if you have it on, turn off the auto-target nearest in the preferences. That got me into trouble a couple of times.
