Both of the Sith classes are hunting down a Dark Council member instead of the Republic. The entire Intelligence division is dissolved by the Dark Council in a massive power play and its agents are reassigned to front line infantry for which they have little to no training. I think a line from the IA story here pretty much sums it up. "Darths Vowran, Baras, and Thanaton have half of our military forces tied up in personal power plays. We can win a war like that." Note that the quote may not be 100% accurate, it's been 8 months or so since my Sniper hit 50, but the gist of it is there.
Lest we forget that you are hunting down a Dark Council member on behest of the Emperor himself in the SW story. And Thanaton did try to kill you more than a few times in the SI story, mostly because you represent change and he wants to preserve the Sith Order, if I remember correctly. I haven't played the SI story in a while, I could be wrong. So really, who's to say that eliminating Baras and Thanaton in both the Sith stories wasn't good for the Empire?
