I've encountered enough LS/DS choices that made me think "what!?" that I have given up and just choose the side I am following for that character. Many DS/LS choices seem shoehorned into otherwise decent storylines. Its as if the writers feel compelled to offer an alignment choice at the end of most stories, regardless of whether such a choice makes sense.
I will agree that sometimes I feel like a choice was forced. On Hoth I was forced to say whether I thought the Lt. did a good job....there was no way around it, even though the question was "Do you have anything you'd like to say"...but whatever.
