Actually the easiest way to reconcile it is:

Both sides took the dark side option.

If you aren't willing to look this stuff up for yourself, I realyl don't see why I should bother to continue this conversation, but I will give you at least one more response.

Since you apparently don't want to bother looking Voss up in Wookiepedia, here is a developer's commentary on why they chose Voss. And here is the most relevant quote.

Quote:
Looking at the holocron (Lucasarts’ extensive guide to all things canon and beyond) we find Voss. It says three thousand years after our timeline a starship pilot will hail from Voss and apparently several mothers throughout history named their kids after the planet. Okay, we can live with that. People name their kids “Dakota” and “Paris” right? Otherwise, it’s ours. Open for creativity. Let’s create a planet for our mystics.
Now that aside, let's look at what the actual LS/DS endings of Voss entail for each side since I have just double checked how they all play out.

Wow, why so mad bro?

If you actually read the entry you'd have seen that the reference to the NJO character is unsourced. That its referenced means nothing without seeing the original article.

Also the destruction of a planet does not invalidate its usefulness. Look at Peragus. Saying one obscure character (out of an entire cast in a lore) came from there means absolutely nothing. Hell the reborn Jedi Exile came from Peragus. Does that means that he comes from a place of population, trees, sunshines and rainbows?

No it does not. Chronology plays a huge part here. You're assuming that it sets off on your own prejudged chronological path.

What if the Empire's emissary came during/after the Republic's events on Voss? The Voss commandos can always be recalled. Hell they might not have even left the planet, especially if the tight chronology of Corellia's considered.

Spoiler


Your chronology is no more valid that it is invalid without further evidence.


Spoiler


Adopting your chronology the LS ending makes even less sense. Assuming the Empires emissary came before the Republic's events on Voss, why would the Voss perpetuate the massacre of their own people on the face of the evidence? I mean the possibility for a species wide irrationality is there but its nonsensical.

Only, Bioware can settle these debates and that probably won't happen till the first expansion.
