I've played most of the chars. and they are all fun, the AI gets better as you go, the higher your level the more "combat tactics" slots you, and your party members will have. This enables your party to much be more flexible, as they will have an option to switch weapons, cast spells, activate abilities, etc. for just about any situation. You can use one of several preset types, or make or customize your own.
FWIW I had the most fun being a Human noble, fighter, dual weapon tree.
PS. Save often, very often. This is Bioware we are talking about, nearly every conversation has repercussions, and you may find yourself wanting to change what you said
