Which, IMO, is a much scarier kind of evil than a cackling space warlock.
I agree, and I prefer a story where you're surprised by the villain and also where society as a whole doesn't see them as a villain and doesn't believe you about them. It makes for a more interesting and clever story IMO than the cackling space warlock as you said

It could be like Wing Commander IV's villain. Look it up.

Although the gameplay and production value was far faaaaaaaaaar inferior to the previous entry, the storyline was very well done.
SWTOR gameplay edited like a television series
