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?
