If by Gun Slingers you are including Soldiers who are not force sensitive so dont have to worry about the whole DSP thing .. then yes .. Soldiers definately have more fun. My Soldier character (which is my namesake :D ) is doing quite well at the moment, being 1 of 2 characters in a group of 7 PCs that are not force sensitive.

The Soldier will be taking Sector Ranger as PrC, so will be leaving the group (because I am GM now and I just want to concentrate on GMing), but he is pretty kick arse .. I will develop even more so. However, he is not self reliant, having specialised in certain skills rather than spreading em all over the place. But that's the whole point in working in a team .. you depend on each other to do things you cant do .. a concept which my group has yet to grasp after 15 missions ! :mad:

SMUGGLERS!
We don't make a living killing it just happens if we can get by with no one noticing the better.

Marauders have the most fun! ;)

We get to do what we want when we want, and it's pretty hard to stop us when we get started on something.

Gunslingers have the most fun... blow things up, get paid, kill something, etc. No moral questions about the force, no wasted vitality, just wasted enemies.

The GM has the most fun.

Gm to players: "Ok, the blast door across the gantry plank that crosses over the chasm opens to allow two squads of Stromtroopers and a score of heavy assult troops through. They see you crossing the gantry, what do you do?"

Players: "Um...at this point were probably dead so we will try to take out as many of them as we can."

The character I've had the most fun playing is a little of everything. She's a pilot extrodinair, business woman, smuggler, who has been trying to reestablish her connection to her Jedi heritage. I've focused primarily on her talents with the Force recently, but she does kick serious butt in other sreas as well.

I've played other characters before including light/ dark side Jedi, but my all time favorite is the above character.

I'd have to say, my first time being a player (I mostly GMed games), I am inclinded to say, being a droid is fun, as I have no master, and broke my little program that says "don't hurt people" :D Plus, I get upgrade that unless you have a cybor part on, normal people wouldn't beable to get. ;)

I like my current character the best :)

He's a Scoundrel, which can only do a few thing really well. Like Hide, Move Silently and Pilot.

He also has a grenade fetish, which means that he never uses one of his 2 blaster pistols if he still has grenades :)
He's a bit weak when it comes to VP compair to the rest of the team which in turn means that he tends to run away when he's been beaten up a bit...

I voted for good Jedi, because that is the kind of character that I like to make. However, I have seen my players have a lot of fun with the soldier and bounty hunter templates as well.

I think it's fun just to go random and see where the group leads you. Usually to the DS for me and then they get mad when they leave me to die with the spirit of a Sith Lord and I don't share the awesome treasure that I hauled out after I defeated the spirit.:p

Jedi Knights all the way. Two of my all-time favorite characters I have ever played in any game system have been Jedi. I'll be one of the first to admit that the powers are snazzy, no two ways about it, but it's also the whole idea of them. The first one was early NR era, and as such his being a Jedi was a sort of link to the past and bridge to the future (especially once he got the point of training his own students). The second, from whom I draw my screen name, is from the RotE era, and he's just an all-around blast to play.

Personally, I find that the "Scoundrel" stereotype can be quite fun to play. Not a smuggler persay, but the type of character who enjoys manipulating others, preferring to use his mouth instead of a gun to work his way out of a tight spot. I, myself, have a Farghul character who is like this in a d20 campaign, with a level of Force Adept to give him the "Alter" feat, and, in turn, give him Affect Mind; I'm using that as sort of a little quirk that he doesn't exactly realize, he just knows he has this unusual ability to make people see his side of the situation.

Sometimes the funnest games are the ones where you avoid combat. There is no substitute for good "Role"-playing.B)

True, but all roleplay and no combat makes for a poor adventure over all, but my favorite character(s) is a ex-sith turned jedi and a non force sensitive noghri. these are the two i've had the most fun with during my years of playing star wars.

I think that depends entirely on your group and the flavor of your campaign. I've run adventures where no one fired a shot or struck a blow, and everyone loved it. To me, roleplaying is about telling a good story. You can have a good story without violence.

Of course, an entire campaign of that would get a trifle dull. My players get in their share of furballs, no doubt about that. But I find that when you make the combat a tad more infrequent, it becomes just that much more interesting when the excrement interfaces with the climate control unit...

Personally, I prefer Paladin's Nohgri. He plays a Nohgri scout in my game that can get a total of 38 or higher on Move Silently, and a 32 or so on Hide (he's only a level 7). He love having fun with the Nohgri, joking that he just disappears while in plain sight, in broad daylight.

is that in the d20 system, cause if it is, i haven't had my noghri translated yet, for two reasons, the main one is cause i don't have his sheet with me right now and two is because i don't like that system too much, but for the total amount of dice he has in the d6 system for stealth, with his +2d bonus, he has like bout 13 dice to roll at once, and as for combat, he has like 15 dice to roll, so if that helps you any with what numbers he has for d20, go for it.

And as for hide, he doesn't really bother with that much since in the d6 system stealth does both, so ya can figure that out, and that does count his 4D+2 pcp he has. and as for a game that you want just bout all roleplaying in, do VtM, that's for real advanced roleplaying, in my opinion, star wars isn't star wars without combat, i mean look at in, in episode 4 it starts off with combat, a star destroyer chasing a corellian corvette.

my character started out as a gungslinger but loads of cp's later he is more like a jack of all trades and i like it better this way

Difficult to say that one type is more fun thant any other. i think i'll cast my vote for shifty jack of all trades type. I started out as an assassin type (in a D6 darkside game) all others turned to dark jedi quickly. Once I felt that I could take them out, if necessary, with my own physical skills then I took up my jedi training under one of their tutilage.

I would have to say my favorite character type was my WEG Guild bountyhunter, Especially when I was alowed..excuse me.. ordered... to turn in our smuggler for her bounty.. :D .. What made it even more hillarious was the fact that she walked right into my trap without even a second glance. And by the way she knew she had a bounty on her head and that I was a bounty hunter

I've had the most fun with my Force Adept/Scoundrel. But I have to admit that I really agree with Fred, the GM has the most fun.
