Meta speaking, the Empire are the guys because they provide a better and fresher story to players and drive the story.

What would games be without a big bad baddie to beat ? Nothing, because most stories of "coming into power" revolve around exactly that.

An exception that proves the rule.

Especially considering how many try to keep the SI down because they are a former slave. Not exactly "good guy" behaviour

Darth Thanaton was also a slave at birth.

I don't think it was ever "banned" before, given that there were some examples of slaves being possibly freed, even at the start of the game, but I also don't think there's any evidence that slavery is being deemphasized, much less heavily deemphasized, in the Empire.

One of the codex entries mentioned that the Emperor had banned ever freeing any slave, until after the Great Galactic War, at which point that ban was lifted for Force-sensitives to add more Sith to the ranks.
