I don't think the Empire is out of the fight just yet. There are many factors still to play. Sploirers ahead
First thing I need to correct is the Emporer is not dead but infact wounded and in some sort of extended sleep to heal up. (This can be prove in sith warrior story and by darth Malgus. Sith Warrior gets mails from the hand saying the Emporer is weaked and asleep and Malgus on Illum just before realing he is a traitor clears states the emporer is sleeping)
Yes the Empire (with its leader sleeping and 5 of the 11 council killed) is weaker but that does not put them out of the Fight just yet.
On Balsavis (if Empire charecters chose to do certian quest) you find out that the Cathar Prince was Imprissioned by the Republic. The Cathar are friece and deadly and important to the War Effort. A civil war on their homeworld would be devestating and one is bound to happen due to the Republic Imprisioning a Cathar Prince illagaly.
The Republic is also near Complete Civil War. Troopers start out on a planet that occupants are at war with them. Jedi Consulars (try ) to help the Rift allaiance a group of poeple who lost all faith in the Republic(Have no finished story yet).
Impirial agents (If they chose to keep the black Cotex rathar than give it to the Jedi) have a distint advantage over the entire galaxy as that box contians all the serects in the galaxy. If they hand it over to the sith the agent becoems head of a new impirial inteligance. If they keep it for themselves and run away they still could cuase alot of damage to the republic)
The Empire adopting new ideas and tacitics now after Malgus's deafet. In denova you find out that they started promoting Aliens to higher ranks and more responisble positions(does not mean the racistism has ended). They are startin g to realize that Malgus may have been right.
Makeb is all about the rising of the hutt cartel. The Devs in previous statement that the Empire is going to be playing a more "Defensive postion" in the war which means less resources and man power to Makeb. If that is true then the Republic will have to devote alot of man power to force the hutts out which may or may not even the odds but will most likely give the Empire time to lick its wounds.
Also Republic Forces also took a bigg hit to corellia as well. Empire did lose 1/10 of its forces alone at Corellia but I believe (Can't entirely remeber) the Republic may also be in the same boat however Corellia produces alot of the Republics main fleet. The Empire comepletly criples it while evacuating meaning Corellia is now useless as a military Industrial center.
Lastly the first war took 20 years. (acording to timeline) The Republic was on the verge of deafet yet it managed to hold out and peace did occur for another 20 years (The cold war). Even should the Empire be close to falling it will take time and that time can bring about any number of events that turn the war into the Empires favor
Trueth be told this war can still swing either way in my opinion
