To be entirely honest, I like the fantasy of a Jedi survivor in hiding. Or a Jedi order-ish thing in hiding after the Sith Empire decimates us. I'd enjoy stories about that.

Only if said moisture farmer with his 92' bowl cut is wearing full denim.

That's like not wanting to play as a Roman Faction in an RTS because eventually they lose.

"Evil will always triumph over good because good is dumb." -Dark Helmet. That said, Luke Skywalker is my hero and has been since I was 7 in 1982. I am rolling Republic son! Good might be dumb, but we ALWAYS win.

yes good is going to win ultimately...but its not the destination, its the journey!

its not whether you win or lose its how you play the game

oh and besides...this games story isnt going to end. its going to continue as long as there are enough subscriptions to keep it going. if the war ended while this game was still popular....that would just be awkward...regardless of who won!

It is a dark time for the galactic republic! thousands of jedi trying desparately to catch up on meditation.
troopers washing speeder windsheilds since theyve been laid off, and smugglers suddenly finding themselves as the bad guys with no tanks to back them up

I second that kenobi was lying. he was still feeling guilty
We will meet AGAIN!!! In this MMO or the next!!!

Why bother doing Civil War reenactments, it's obvious how they end, the Russians always win.

The Imperials are actually quite interesting to play , I love the underside to the Empire that you see when you play an IA.
The Sith are just evil sons-of-*****es. But the actual normal people behind the Empire are really cool .

So, it is quite cool to play Empire if you want to see behind-the-scenes.
