Slavery is illegal in the republic. It just doesn't get the enforcement it should. Plus, I didn't say the republic was good.

Lightside as IA just means that you work for the good of the Empire and not for the Sith or yourself.

Going Darkside means u want self-gain and/or work for the Sith.

My Zophia is Light V at 48. Only problem i have had with my alignment is the idiots who play this game telling me how i ''should'' play.
My time card ends on December 5th. I have no intent to subscribe, let alone play, after i have completed all 9 episodes of KotFE. Likely i will subscribe for a single month to finish off the ''season'', play what remains and then say good bye to SWTOR until the END of the next season. Enjoy Bioware!

I am mostly light, with a smattering of Dark. My Sniper's philosophy is to support the Empire and the greater good and to hell with the Sith. He will dirty his hands when needed and tends to spare those he feels are worth sparing. Criminals and unrepentant terrorists tend to get a bullet in the head.

He does not think the Jedi are any better either though and feels the Republic at this juncture is misguided. Level 31, still in Act 1... damn you bonus missions plus PvP.

I would agree, Some of the light side options are really interesting. Even the NPC's are surprised by some of your choices.

And to those that get upset in flashpoints or groups that want you to pick dark, let them know when they start paying your sub you will pick any choice they want.
The force is like Duct Tape - it has a dark side, it has a light side, and it binds the universe together!

There's an aesthetic appeal of the dark side I corruption (bright orange eyes), so I'm keeping my agent in the 1000-1900 dark side range. Works out greatly, story wise for me. Sometimes you just have to tie up loose ends.

I'd also add "people who betrayed/played me, personally" to that list, but pretty much the same for me. Light choices in most encounters, only going Dark when I decide that someone just needs to die.

The problem is that the writers weren't very consistent. In most encounters the light side option will be of the "capture, not kill" variety, which is a philosophy that makes perfect sense for an Agent; don't throw away a good tool simply out of spite, or for the fun of the kill; that's what the Sith do. So if your Agent believes in making the Empire a stronger power, the Light option is often superior, and it's fun to rub that in the faces of the Sith.

But then you have a few where the Light option is to let someone who's sworn to destroy the Empire go free, rather than kill them. It's nearly the exact opposite of the previous situation; only a complete idiot would let their enemies walk away just out of a sense of niceness when it can only serve to make the Republic stronger. So going pure-Light or pure-Dark just doesn't make a whole lot of sense, given this disparity.
