Ah, my mistake. Looking over your posts I believe your point is the actual depth of the storytelling would be lost if someone were to look at things in terms of "everything the Republic does is good" and "everything the Empire does is evil"
If I've understood you correctly, I believe this is an excellent point.
Some of the other opinions in this thread have been expressed as "either side can be good or bad, depending on your point of view." That was more what I was debating against.
I wasn't talking to you there, but others. You got my point exactly.
