Knowledge time.

Empire is the richer faction, the faction with Lavish armor and beautiful cities.

Republic = horde.

Out fleet has freaking dirty tents in it.

The alliance were never good guys. They were trying to murder thrask for not wanting to be a slave.

The hell is that being the good guy.

It's a damned matter of opinion.

Empire is a more strict, regimental, and hierarchy-based society. Force-users start bloodlines that stay in power for a long time, and hold sway over most of the government. Slavery is supported, racism is sometimes prevalent, and there's a large amount of corruption. It kind of depends on viewpoint in a little way, as those that work their tails off can rise through the ranks to be successful.

Republic is more of a democratic and equal society. The Force-users in the Republic are more servants of the people and protectors, but do hold a lot of power in the government. Equality is promoted among the races, despite squabbles among individual races. It also wavers a bit on viewpoints, sometimes appearing a bit weak, and like there's corruptions in the ranks. The amount of space it covers is hard to control with a Democratic-Republic, and the difficulty shows.

Warhammer 40K novels are as geeky as I get. And that's pretty far down the spectrum from MMOs and Jawa plushies (yes, he's sitting on my desk while I listen to the Howling Fjord music from WoW because I miss it).

Lol i spelled thrall wrong, i'll admit it.

But I dont get why the bad guys are always liked to the horde.

The only bad guys in WoW are the blood elves and Undead. Everyone else is just shades of grey.

The republic is probably the richer of the 2 factions or at least was but the Empire spent the last few centuries building a massive military to overwhelm the Republic which wasn't really prepared for it.

Fact: Republic was never the Good Guys.

In fact it was the Jedi's relentless persecution of the "Dark" offshoot of their religion that's led to this entire mess for hundreds of millennia, not unlike how Earth religions treat their spin-offs.

Surely they could've found some way to accommodate Ajunta Pall and his philosophies.
