No, the Force is just a tool, personal darkness like ambition and greed is what caused these conflicts.

I wonder if the Indiana Jones movies were Han Solos dreams while he was frozen in carbonite?

Whats interesting to contemplate is rather or not the Force is alive. Kreia certainly thought it was, and the Force can be wounded or disturbed, and it is said to protect certain people which suggests some kind of consciousness. You could argue if the Force actually is some kind of evil entity it would allow Force sensitives to exist and manipulate its power knowing that it wouldn't have to do any work because the users would form various organizations and war against each other because of philosophical opinions, these wars serving its never ending quest for balance. Assuming it is alive why the Force would even want balance is another question though, as is why does it exist.

Out of all the reasons one might have to think Darth Traya was right, this one makes the least sense. The alignment system in TOR is game mechanics, not an expression of the will of the Force. Just because one disagrees with the philosophy for morality Bioware used doesn't mean a player who considers themselves lightside could never have a reason to want to try the above mentioned choices. Not everyone will agree on what the right choice is.

It doesn't work well with non-force users, but for a Jedi or Sith, the force tells them which actions are Dark or Light. Just because the situation at the time seems like it will only further a bad situation, maybe one of those hostages you rescue ends up saving a couple planets from a plague? Butterfly effect, and all that jazz.

......hmmm and I just tend to think that "the Force" is neutral in general.

It is supposed to be an "energy field that connects everything in the universe" - according to Yoda teachings. (mind that I only follow the movies, haven't read any of the wide array of books) - as such, it does not have any "preferences".
Dark Side or Light Side are only human perceptions of certain choices - and again, this can vary per character.
So we would have zillions of definitions of what is Light and Dark - something the "force": would not care about at all.

Since there are OTHER species and beings in the galaxy, the Force cannot be just "light or Dark". it simply is. Like an oxygen.
It is a "pool of power" that one can use according to his own skill and will.
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

The force is a real mess. It has no good or evil, neither does it have lawful or chaotic. It's just pure mess.

What's the point of reading unifying force. Everything in it was contradicted in later novels until they simply retconned it with 'thinking about the force differently' = 'sith plot.'

Waste of time like 99% of the eu
