I really liked Tython as well... I think I might feel the same way you do about it if I had started with a Jedi as my first character. My first was a Sith, so Korriban was my start.
I think the only thing Tython was missing for me was a feeling of mysticism, being the birthplace of the Jedi and all that. I was really looking forward to going there (I was actually hoping my Sith character would go there, until I later learned how the game worked and that it's a Republic planet only). When I started my Jedi, I liked Tython, but felt it could have had a little more magic to it. Korriban and Dromund Kaas had that feel on the Sith side for me. I did like the area that had the ancient Jedi statues - that was cool.
There's a book called "Dawn of the Jedi" that talks a lot about an ancient chasm with untold secrets and mysteries of the ancient Jedi. Something like that would have added to that feeling of mysticism I was looking for.
