Does anyone ever wonder why the imperials have an accent to begin with?

I went Empire simply because they have Bounty Hunters and Imperial Agents.

There might have been a reason to start with, but the biggest reason people roll Empire right now is because everyone else rolled Empire. It's a nasty snowballing effect. Republic is empty, and this is an MMO, so they go where the people are.

He never actually did anything cool whatsoever in the movies. I guess standing around holding a rifle was the cool thing back in the 80s.

The main reason I play empire is because of the sith purebloods XD. I'm not really such a bad guy.

I believe this to be the norm for most people on the planet.

So when it comes time to roll pay, guess what kind of person I'm not going to role play.

When I'm role playing, I'm gonna be that ******e who doesn't give a **** about the little guy, and will only help you if I am some how getting myself a leg up.

Role playing this is fun.
This guy gets it.

No, it's because kids think it's cool to play as the bad guys, when in reality the good guys always win.
