They're both vigorously motivated for different reasons:

The Republic troopers are motivated by their desire to defend the galaxy's freedom and so that their families would not live under the brutal oppression of the Sith Empire.

The Imperial troopers on the other hand are motivated by the fear of failure, which in most cases would result in harsh punishment from a Sith Lord. Hence in their case it would preferable to die honorably in battle instead of being 'put down' by merciless and sadistic Sith lords.

Of course I'm generalising here and I'm sure you'd expect to find patriotic Imperial troopers who genuinely wish to serve their Empire and their people, but nevertheless both groups follow radically different mindsets.
