Republic vs. Imperial classes - Any gameplay differences?
So each Republic class has its Imperial counterpart. For example, the Sith Assassin is the counterpart of the Jedi Shadow, or the Sith Marauder of the Jedi Sentinel. Looking a bit on Torhead, there seem to be a LOT of duplicate powers for counterpart classes, only with different names.
Is there any real difference between gameplay for such counterparted classes? I mean, I know the story and missions are different of course, but I mean like the talents and skills and powers and such.
