Star Wars: The Old Republic has eight playable classes, covering the major archetypes from the familiar Star Wars universe. New players might be intimidate by the choices, but BioWare is here to help. In a series of videos, the developers pit pairs of classes against each other and say why their favorites would dominate. It's a lot like those "Who would win in a fight?" debates kids have been having on playgrounds for decades, only with grown men.

In this clip, we see the cannon-wielding Republic Trooper take on the deadly Sith Inquisitor.

If you think a Jedi Knight has an unfair advantage over a Bounty Hunter, this video may change your opinion.
