Ok so I just got done watching the movies for the like one millionth time. Does anyone else get the gist that the Sith have ruled the galaxy once before??

After careful review and consideration of your statement and the movies, I have come to the conclusion that no, the Sith have never ruled the galaxy. In fact, it would appear that Darth Sidious is actually one of the most successful trolls in the galaxy at this time. He builds a death star which he intentionally leaves an open place to destroy it just so he can build a second one and convince the rebel alliance that it is not operational to eventually shoot them.

He was also in a conspiracy with Admiral Ackbar, as Ackbar wanted to have the most famous line in history, but only mildly succeeded simply because Sidious trolled him on that too.

His biggest troll moment though? Convincing Vader that he killed Padme, as he kept that joke going long after Vader threw him into the reactor. In fact, he wasn't screaming on the way down, he was laughing.

Actually, at some point between the game's timeline and Bane creating the Rule of Two, there was a period where the Sith did in fact control most of the galaxy.

The Sith in Old Republic also nearly succeeded.

Not really, they never captured the core worlds. Furthest they got was the coup on Corellia.

I know that one of the lines in attack of the clones is "I won't let this republic, which has stood for a thousand years, be split in two!" so this would indicate that at some point before 1000 BBY the republic wasn't in control of the galaxy.

The Sith controlled practically the entire galaxy before Bane went all Rule of Two on everyone, not only that but the Ruusan Reformations practically created a new Republic in the first place.
