I find it that my agent character seems to have no dignity at all. Sith zap him with lighting all the time and he still serves them ?

Darth Malgus "killed" my character and what... ? I'm still a loyal empire servant ?
Why do I feel like a brainwashed puppet when playing an empire agent ?

"Kneel down before me!"
"Obey me!"
"You are nothing you worthless fool!"

Seriously ? Who in their right mind would stand such horrible treatment and still call himself a "patriot" ?

This is some strange, strange storyline right there.

No wonder my main is a Jedi.

Good guys > mindless drones.

Flame away.

How much of the IA storyline have you played? My guess would be partway through Dromund Kaas? Keep going, man. It gets better.

I agree, it really killed my mood getting owned by the sith dude.

I didn't mind getting blasted with lightning, but I would of prefered if my agent took it like a man and kept standing in defiance.

If you're really an ImpAnt, then yes, as far as the Empire is concerned, you're a drone, a disposable tool. Get used to it, or defect ! LOL

But seriously, everyone in the Empire is disposable form the Empire's point of view. But then, every Trooper is disposable from the Republic Senate's PoV...
I hate violence. I'm just really, really prepared for Peace.

There's a reason the regular citizens are so subservient to the Sith.

Not some politicians, the majority of them in the Republic I'm willing to bet. It really does exist on both sides.
