  4. Spare his life to show you are Light Side.

The BH story is no different in this manner.

If it upsets you sufficiently you can refuse to attack anyone until they've beaten you to < 50% of your Health. Then you can react in self-defense. Bonus LS points for spending the time pre-50% attempting to negotiate with "Eidolon Security Overseer" via /say to put down his weapons and surrender.
My personal headcanon is that none of the guys you kill enroute to your story cutscene actually die. They have a medical plan a lot like yours that rehabilitates them in the field after a few minutes. They also revive their pets, much like your character does with their companions.

So in this interpretation only the people you CHOOSE to kill in a cutscene, or have to kill to defend yourself in a storyline fight, or who are confirmed killed by someone else in a cutscene actually stay dead. Therefore dark side points! And therefore light side points if you spare them. And whenever someone mentions the number of people you've killed and they aren't specific about someone you DID actually kill in the storyline, it's just speculation/exaggeration. Otherwise yeah, your pure light side JK/Consular woulda been drummed out of the order back on Tython.
