But she also refused to follow her Sith Master's teachings and assumed he was there to adapt to her Jedi ways, no matter what he said or did to convince her otherwise.

At least LS Jaesa has a very specific goal in mind, and you could justify her providing aid to the Sith as part of the cover for her goal to infiltrate and reform the Empire.

That said, I don't know if changing her into Dark Jaesa is the best course of action. I love DS Jaesa, but that's not really who Ashara is. Her fans liked her for being Ashara.

Although it would be nice if she stopped seeing herself as a Jedi, like in the class story.
My guess is that she was likely a casualty of class stories being cut when this game failed to be a WoWkiller, and nearly went belly up. Companion story arcs were originally planned to continue as wll. I'd be very surprised if it wasn't originally planned that the Inquisitor could eventually manipulate her into a full dark side fall. A shame if so, because it would have been more believable than Jaesa turning into Darth Crazypants overnight.
