The key to playing a convincing dark side character is to turn off the alignment loss/gain indicators and roleplay exactly how you would play your character. Never pick an option simply because it has the dark side symbol beside it. Many of them fall into the realm of "chaotic stupid" rather than "intelligent evil" or "necessary evil". Act as you feel a true Sith, or a dark Jedi, etc. would (or whatever your character is).

You may even end up with some light side points, but that's just a meaningless number that has no effect on gameplay. I have probably overused this example, but if Palpatine was somehow bought this game and was playing through the Old Republic, he would have probably racked up about 10,000 light side points (i.e. not mindlessly killing people) before finally revealing his true nature and taking over the Republic.
