Sith Goals:

Complete Galactic Domination (every lifeform in the galaxy under Sith command).

Complete Destruction of the Jedi Order.

Imperial goals:

Do what the Sith say so they don't get killed by them.

The sith empire has been maniplualted since it began for one puspose to hault the republic off long enough so the emperor can finish his own goals.

The sith try to fight for control over an ever changing power sturggle

and the people of the imperal machine want revenge on the republic who have committed more attrosties in the war than the entire empire during its entire life span

The imperial army wants nothing more than to show the republic for what it realy is but also some people within the imperial army want respect from the sith.

Your actions shape you, the force simply reveals your true nature,One does not die, the force embraces you

Avenge the defeat suffered at the end of the Great Hyperspace War and achieve galactic domination.

As for the Emperor, he wants to achieve "ascendance."

Started reading the SWTOR novels, and so far I think they're fairly good. Not the best thing I've read but not the worse by any means

In Deceived, Darth Malgus believes that the whole point of everything is greater understanding of the Force. War, combat, life, ect... Everything has to do with a gaining greater understanding of the Force.

He went to war, and fights Jedi, not so much out of hate of the Jedi or even what they believe, even though they are wrong in his mind in their understanding of the force.

But rather because though warfare and chaos a greater understanding of the Force is achieved.

Minor spoiler from the Jedi Knight story line.

Lots of good points in here.

I would also like to add that the Sith of this era are often the result of generations of their lifestyle. They only know hatred, cruelty, and one way to power.

If you had never known anything else, I do not find it that hard to believe that that is the right way.

Personally, I love the empire. It's different. Yeah, compared to our modern world ideas, they are evil... But this is a galaxy far, far away :P

And thats the truth.
It is better to be feared than loved. Love is like a chain of obligation, and because man is sadly wicked it is broken at every opportunity to serve self interest. However fear is maintained by the dread of punishment which never abandons you.

The sith were always the bad guys. They attacked the Republic first in the Great Hyperspace War and now they want revenge. They were never the victims.

There is such a thing as going too far. The Jedi and Republic did go too far. Victory does not mean attempting genocide.

Are all the sith's (class) just murderous, power hungry, selfish beings?
To quote Teen Titans (the TV series), the Emperor:

Comes to claim,
Comes to Sire,
The end of all things mortal.

Beyond that, most of the Sith have their own motivations for things. Some seek the destruction of the Jedi Order for what happened at the end of the Great Hyperspace War, others just want to destroy things, some think they're doing the galaxy a favor by restoring true order to things.
This just in: Expanding on an ending no one likes is not improving said ending. A polished turd is still a turd.

Well maybe, but they were still always the bad guys from the start, not an abuse victim turned abuser.
