Exactly I thought the war is going to be more balanced going back and forth between the two sides but bioware seems to just want the republic hammer the empire into dust. I said in another thread if it keeps going like this empire players are going to start to leave since they will start to feel their stories are meaningless.
Nothing in the game shows me that my actions did anything for good or bad (Actually the game pretty much shows me that nothing happens no matter what I do), and that goes for either side. I couldn't care less how many crappy fanboy books are written outside of the game (I love the irony of people complaining about the Cartel Market when they also buy these crappy novels), it is the next update that will make the actions seem good or bad.
Empire players are not going to quit the game over a book for the fanboys that most people won't read and even less will care about.
