wait IA's assemble and lead an army? Save royal families and diplomats, and uncover sleeper agents? Cause Jedi Consular Chapters 2 and 3 are white knuckle rides.

And Smuggler missions have hilarious dialogue, and quirky companions.

No they just uncover plots to undermine the sith, infiltrate terrorist cells, choose whether to let assets get away in order to better utilize their intelligence later and make decisions where thousands of lives are at stake. All in chapter 1. And that's the least exciting of their chapters. Once chapter 2 starts... well I won't go into it because spoilers, but its quite the story.

I personally am a Republic fan. I played a Knight as my main and he was a great ride. But nothing compares to the IA story.

To me the bad guys are almost always more interesting, and the good guys tend to be dull. Plus despite the incredibly impossible odds, the good guys always bs a way to win, which is lame. That is why I went sith, to make sure we win.

When I played on Republic, there were many times an entire situation felt like a betrayal was coming. Saving people is all very well, but I still expected something to happen. Corrupt politicians is about the extent of what I got. Plus, for example, I don't see how my Jedi companion would just stand by and let me give some senator the means to further slavery in the Republic.

Playing as a Sith, everything seems much more rewarding. The beginning Warrior storyline is exactly what you'd expect. It's so much fun to do this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tY4uwy6xDIY

My server seems to have equal numbers of Sith and Republic, so I guess I lucked out there. The ships and accents are much sexier on the Empire. The armor looks somewhat decent (I detest the Knight PvP gear (it looks like it would more appropriate on BH, but that's for another thread I guess)). The storyline choices often have amusing or satisfying results. I've always had much more fun destroying things than anything. It's more fun to swing a sledgehammer through a wall than to put a wall up, imo.

That all being said, playing full dark side often conflicts with my personal morals. Playing greyside is the best solution to this. Choose what you want to choose without worrying if you're going to lower your light/darkside score.

The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.

By legacy guild chat i mean darkside version of republic guilds sharing the same chat panel as their republic counterparts.
