I'd play an Imperial Agent just to fly that ship!

That is one wicked ship, isn't it?

I think it's the best-looking in the game so far. Looks vaguely Naboo. Perhaps the Imperials control that planet.

Amazing ship, an interesting race and a fun looking class - I'm actually more keen to play Agent now than even Bounty Hunter or the two Sith classes (and far more excited by the Imperial classes than any of the Republic ones) - sniping, spying, assassination, intrigue and a sweet ride - what's not to like?!

Now I just need SWTOR to defy my expectations and actually have fun gameplay and I'm all set.

I say old bean, nothing quite like the English accent for when one
wishes to make a villain sound truely dastardly is there!.

You too can learn to speak like this over at the Imperial academy on
Chiss. You see dear boy, you never forget a spiffing day like the one when one graduates by offing one of those filthy
unwashed rebel peasants, I do say one does tend to pop back to the homeworld for a glass of port and a bloody good knees-up.

Lets here it for the Imperial Agent !, Hoorah !, good show old-man !.

Lol, Imps have always had British accents, or at least most of them.

This goes back to the casting for the movies. Most of the Empire's officers were taken out of the UK, where most of the filming took place. And of course you have the Peter Cushing playing Grand Moff Tarkin, doesn't get much more British than that. David Prowse is also a brit, although you don't have any way of figuring that out in the movies... Most people think Ian McDiarmid is British, but he's actually Scottish. And of course there's Christopher Lee in the prequels.

So ever since then Imps, and sometimes bad guys in general, are portrayed with British accents.

I kinda like it lol.

One of the classes I was least interested in. However that's changed now, they did a great job of selling it. Really looks like it will be a good story and class in general.

All these good class updates just make me want to see the Trooper's more though :/

Ian McDiarmid is British. Great Britain is made up of three separate countries, England, Scotland and Wales.

They are still separate countries, and sure technically he is British cause he hails from the UK. But someone from Wales is Welsh. People from Scotland are Scottish. So he's Scottish.

Technically he is British because he comes from Great Britain (which is part of the UK)

He is Scottish and British. I think you are confusing English and British. Just so you know people from England are English and British.

When you said he wasn't British you were in error - and that path leads to the dark side.

So, as someone who's Star Wars knowledge is basically taken from the original 3 films, and not the new ones, please enlighten me: What the hell are blue skinned aliens doing in the imperial army? Last time I checked they loathed aliens and didn't employ them. Is this some crazy new policy Lucas forced into the new films?

Different Empire, though of course they're playing up the similarities so that people who don't want to think much can slide right into it. KOTOR takes place many (thousands of) years before the movies, even the prequels. The Republic is still around, still the main government, but is opposed by the Sith Empire.
