I played as Zero but to be honest I didn't find many of the skills in Borderlands 2 to be that great and with the passing of time I think they probably feel even worse now so I'm not surprised you are struggling to find one you like. The class system was always the weakest part of Borderlands 2 I think.
Glad it's not just me! I really enjoyed playing as Brick in BL1, just going into berserker mode and beating everything into submission with fists... there wasn't a boss in the game I couldn't take down that way. I miss not having something like that in the second one.

I think I said before, when it comes to single player - BL2 was the better game overall, but BL1 had the slightly better classes.

Co-op I'm not sure about. I've heard a lot of good things about BL2 co-op class match-ups though.

First play through was with the gunserker, you could akimbo 2 weapons as special power. Wasn't much use really. Next time was with Gaige and her robot, found her fun to use.

I have always struggled with the classes that have a 'pet'. I played Gaige for a while too, and her robot becomes very powerful as you pile in the points, but it amounted to pressing a button to have something else kill everyone, which I felt kinda robbed the game of it's main point.

Yeah, that's the problem I had with most of the classes, and it was even worse in the Pre-Sequel. Fully automated class skills aren't fun.

Have to say I'm having more fun as Maya, like you guys say having a bot run off and kill everything for you isn't that interesting gameplay-wise. I'm also enjoying the siren's phaselock skill more, it feels more tactical and has got me out of a number of scrapes. Now in my mid-20s level-wise I'm starting to unlock some interesting powers for it as well.

Maya's decent, although in single player she needs her skill tree to be very carefully managed - especially in playthrough 2 onwards. I found BL2 more difficult to solo than BL1 on the next playthroughs in general. The incoming damage becomes insane to deal with at times.

(Not including Gaige, but I didn't like her because of the reasons above - I want to kill the enemies dammit!)
