Each faction has four classes unique to it, though in many ways they are somewhat mirrored by an enemy factions counterpart. Each class can be specialized and talents invested for further customization.

Sith Warriors and Jedi Knight: Relying on their prowess with the lightsaber over mastery of force powers. The Sith Warrior relies on true aggression to fuel his rage and powerful attacks, a contrast to the calm and collected Jedi Knight who relies on skill and focus over battle zeal.

Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Consular: Powerful Force users, manipulating the force to their own will and able to heal both themselves and allies. The Jedi Consular relies on manipulating the telekinetic aspects of the force and moving objects with their mind, whereas the Inquisitor is a master of the dark arts and commands lightning to burst from their fingers.

Bounty Hunter and Trooper: Heavily armored and a number of gadgets and powerful explosives at their command. These two can stand on the frontlines and take the brunt of battle damage whilst unleashing devastating attacks on their enemies.

Imperial Agent and Smuggler: Relying on sneakiness and subterfuge, the Imperial Agent is armed with all the gadgets and expensive weaponry the Empire can provide. The Smuggler is more self-serving, whilst an Agent may use stealth to improve his chances, the Smuggler can happily rely on his own deception to deliver a quick low blow to an enemy.
