I've played the game for a little while but I am not yet sure on something, if for example I play a smuggler I know I can make him evil by taking the choices in dialougue but can I make him join the empire?

There is no changing faction.

If you want the smuggler class/ class story, you must play on the Republic side.

If you just want the smuggler abilities while playing on the Imperial side, you need to roll an agent.

As long as we remember, it's never really gone.

The agent storyline is far better than the smuggler one anyway.

As was said above if you want the play style on Empire then play an agent, if you specifically want a smuggler, the you are Republic only.

Your political allegiance and your morals are separate in this game.

You can be a pure evil (dark side) character fighting for the Republic, or you can be a light sided member of the Sith Empire. You can change your moral alignment as you see fit, but you're political alignment is tied to your class and is fixed.

All the above is correct. Just to add there is no alternative story line for dark/light. My gunslinger murdered his way around the galaxy throughout his unmistakenably light sided story. Even with dark maxed the interlude refers to me as gallant

Thanks for the reply guys

But it is a shame that you can't do that though it would make things alot more interesting

Jedi falling to the dark side
Treacherous troopers
Bounty Hunters hired by the republic
Sith becoming Jedi
Agents feeding the republic information

I don't know about anyone else but those sounds great to me

no you didnt, but you kinda gave it away still.

also to the OP, your smuggler works for the republic and your bounty hunter works for the empire due to the story which you follow. The empire set up blockades around coruscant so they needed smugglers to get things to other planets. the empire needed bounty hunters so that is why you are on the empire side. its not like you wont see smugglers/bounty hunters working for either side its just that you are playing that particular smuggler/bh that is working with that side.
