So after playing a bit of the game I still wonder who won the Galactic Cold War the Republic or the Empire? (If you don't know what the Galactic Cold War is, well it is the war that you are in on SWTOR)

No-one won the cold war, just people died covertly instead of blasting at each other in giant warships.

Of course, it could be said that certain Sith won, in a way, by gaining victory through their own personal power plays, but that really didn't have much to do with the war.

Jedi Master Tzathali. Korriban/Tython Exchange Program.
Major Dulne. Nothing will stop Havoc Squad, Sir.

Well, since "mutually assured destruction" was never an issue, it technically wasn't even a Cold War. Neither side had planet-killers just waiting to be used. When things did heat up again and the war restarted, both sides weren't obliterated.

It was more of an Uneasy Peace than a true Cold War. I felt the need to specify since I grew up during the last two decades of the RL Cold War. Anyhow, from what I've seen in the stories I played through, the Empire reopened hostilities officially.

We don't know who won yet. There is still more story to tell with this game. I suspect that the Republic will win, but on the other hand, there may be an alternate ending for Dark-Siders (as with other Star Wars games).

peace is a lie there is only passion through passion I gain strength through strength I gain power through power I gain victory through victory my chains are broken the force shall free me

Republic won overall. The Empire suffered a nice amount of huge defeats.
