Eventually some moisture farmer with a bowl cut is going to take us all down, is it really worth it to bother playing as the Empire?

"Kaylee, what the hell's going on in the engine room? Were there monkeys? Some terrifying space monkeys maybe got loose?"

"I take it ya'll were watching? You see us fight?"

Did you forget what emperor Palpatine said to Anakin, after Mace Windu was killed.

"Once again, the SITH shall rule the Galaxy!"

Here is the clip from the movie.

TOR has the Sith Empire, the movies have the Galactic empire, two completely different empires, set millennia apart, TOR is around 3,650 years before the films.

There's also a Second Galactic Civil War that comes years after the original trilogy.

For all we know the sith wins the war and are going to rule the galaxy for hundreds of years before the the republic can take it back again.
Remmeber the timeline is 2000 years before the rise of Palpatine and the rebellion anything can happen in between.

Ok, there are a few key things here.

Why play any game if you know the good guys are going to win out?

Why did you bother to watch the prequel trilogy if you knew Anakin would turn to the Dark Side, and the Jedi Order would be Destroyed?

Why did you bother playing KOTOR 1 or two, you knew the Sith would ultimately lose?

Why watch any episode of Star Trek, Stargate, crime shows, or any TV shows with good and bad guys, the good guys always catch the bad guys and stop them, eventually.

The imperial symbol is almost the same as the Galactic Republic's symbol.
