Customizable corruption! That is certainly exciting to hear about!

Light Side physical effects are certainly canonical, the Exile, Meetra Surik is described as having shining white skin with glowing blue eyes with a certain aura about her.

The daughter on Mortis in the Clone Wars TV show, who was supposed to be the embodiment of the light side of the force, had a significant glowing aura around her too.

Second, there currently isn't any feature that mirrors this on the light side, which we'd also want to address in some way. This isn't something we'll be seeing in the near future, but it's something we would like to see in the game as well.
Sith corruption options? I can see if you want the best power from your ( Dark side spells. skills ) Dark side points effecting them, but the looks associated from the choice of choosing the Dark side, should not even be a option. You should have to live with your choices in the game even in matters pertaining to the Dark side effects. After all we do have to play with the choices we make on the advance class pick.

Light side choices should impact the effectiveness with spells, skills associated with the Light side. And you cannot have "corruption" from Light side choices. That goes against the whole concept of what the Light side choice has to offer. How did Obi'wan ever become corrupted from his Light side choices? Instead he became more powerful and understanding of the Force and the dangers associated with the Dark side.

At the very least, they could do something with the eyes like here: Knight Errant Cover . Giving them some kind of glowing effect would be a start.

But in the movies...the only time you saw anyone "glowing" was after they were dead and in spirit form.

This isn't the movies and nothing in them would contradict physical effects from Light Side use.

depending on eye color, that color could become a shiny version of itself

Someone clearly knows nothing about Star Wars.
