My personal favorite is the Vanguard. Why waste ammo when you can plow into enemies from afar, create a radial explosion at your feet, and send a Shockwave to knock down enemies? I like to bridge the gap.

I'm mixed on this because it depends on whether i'm playing SP or MP. I'm assuming this is a SP question so I voted Sentinel. I love using Biotics and the Sentinel offers 3 great ones Overload, Warp, and Throw. You can also unlock Stasis as a bonus power so you have a ton of capability right there. At level 60 I have everything maxed out (except Tech Armor is only level 3). I have +200% recharge bonus due to carrying light(er) weapons; I barely ever fire my Chakrum Launcher, haha. I can drop a stasis bubble on a group of enemies to freeze them all, then shoot a Warp for a biotic explosion... then I follow that up with Throw to cause another biotic explosion on the survivors. It dominates.
For Multi-player I like mixing it up between an Adept (love them Biotic explosions), Engineer, and Infiltrator (can't beat sneaking by enemies with Cloak, lol).
As above - for SP, I like the Sentinel. I enjoy playing the combat classes like Vanguard, Soldier and Infiltrator, but they don't really offer the full Mass Effect combat experience by sacrificing the bulk of Biotics and Tech.
The Sentinel doesn't kick quite as much individual arse as in ME2, but team biotic explosions going off every second or two more than makes up for a slightly nerfed Tech Armor cooldown and makes you a walking bomb.
I took Liara and Javik along for all but the final two missions for the role-playing experience rather than combat efficiency. To speed things along against tougher foes, Liara and EDI is a better combination for a Sentinel. One boosts your Biotic side while the other boosts your Tech, both with a high degree of skill synergy...should be a no-brainer.
Javik's great for painting enemies with a Particle Rifle and mopping up trash troops with a Slam detonation if I'm on a cooldown, but Dark Channel and Pull are less useful and slower to recharge than Liara's Singularity, so he's largely redundant.
EDI packs Overload and Incinerate which are both more useful against deadlier enemies like Brutes, Atlases, Banshees, Harvesters and Ravagers. Cryo Blast + Incinerate is also a deadly combination against heavies, with the right evolutions.
