Screw the Orbital Bombardment. The Republic has developed multiple weapons that have the capability to destroy a planet.

Use one of those babies and BAM! Rakghoul problem solved.
Celebrate victory, but humbly. The dead man would not want us to gloat.

Morale aside, I'm pretty sure its the only planet in the Seat of the Empire sector we Pubs get.

Its an ideal staging ground, which is awesome enough. You'd need non-coms to get things aside soldiering done, like food, water and power.

Also? Rakghouls cant infect force sensitive people, last I checked. Throw Jedi at the problem.

Spend some time on the Empire side.
There is no good or bad without action. Happiness or misery are not states of being, but rather the result of ones own actions.

In the Legacy of the Force -novel series, that character killing waste of trees, Taris is back to it's pre-bombardment situation in 40 ABY. An ecumenopolis with a deeply stratified society, with those who have the most having the sunlight and those who lack money lack also sunlight.
Think of this: If you will play a Jedi or a Sith, now you will never get to take your apprentice to fight with you in flashpoints, warzones or raids. You will never face together any of the big end-game bosses.

According to the Trooper story line, Rakghouls are a Sith created virus.

They can't bomb the planet because it would make recovery that much harder and in some instances, release chemical's stored in bunkers that would render whole areas uninhabitable at all. not to mention that the rakghouls are slowly becoming a sentient force sensetive species in the bowels of Taris.

The settlements on Taris are relief workers, researchers, mercenaries who protect them, they are investigating the geographic possiblility of recover, the science behind the rakghoul plaque, they aren't just landing back on the planet and living in bombed out houses like nothing happened.

No the Republic should back down from there along with every other planet. and accept the darkside of the force. Join the Empire and take down the emperor.

And that is exactly why it needs to be done.
A Sith lord callously destroyed an entire planet and killed billions (or more likely thousands of trillions if it really was a city that covered the entire planet) of people.

Reclaiming and rebuilding that planet is saying very clearly and loudly: We will not be cowed by you, no matter how many atrocities you commit.

There is some economic incentive to rebuilding the planet. (SW story - Project Siantide, major weapon pew pewz).

Except said Sith Lord had no connection to the Sith Empire.

Seriously. The people at large are so oblivious to the difference between the Jedi and the Sith at the time surrounding the event that they refer to it as the Jedi Civil War.

I understand that the Republic may have reasons to restore Taris. After all, a functional planet is more valuable than a ruined one. Even in the seemingly densely populated galaxy of Star Wars, planets capable of supporting life is still relatively rare.

The Empire's reaction is by far the most herpaderp.
