Depends on the situation.
On Balmorra, the Imperials had a plan which involved
rigging the corpses of dead resistance members with explosives, so when their comrades tried to retrieve their gear, they would be killed. The trouble was that the collateral damage would have been
since the locals were also scavenging the battlefields. And the stupid Imperials
were counting on it
in order to scare the population into obedience; which, in all likelihood, would have backfiered badly - we only would have given them mortars to rally behind. So I decided to change the rigging a little, planting the explosives only in the dead rebels' weaponry. So the only victims would be actual resistance members when they try to retrieve their weapons.
Such callous disregard for collateral damage was too evil for me.
On the other hand, on one of Vette's personal quests, I discovered that
her mother was enslaved by a Hutt who had literally worked her to death. I chose what any Sith would do - revenge. Vette actually dropped a bunch of affection points with me and later seemed depressed and remorseful (the quest was done without my involvement in battle - the Hutt was murdered "off-screen" by Vette and her sister). But even though she wasn't happy with me, this was the right thing to do.
Killing the guy who caused the death of Vette's mother wasn't too evil for me.
So it really depends. I'm neutral right now, but I have fallen to Dark I once or twice.
