Just out of curiosity, on my main I went full dark side to achieve titles, codex entries and obtain certain other alignment based items (like pets). Since then I have been working on my light side rep and have gotten up to Light IV, since I had already been full dark-side in the past, would this reflect in my achievements? Or is that something that is a little more complicated to verify?

In case you're missing the point here, and it wouldn't surprise me if you are, this is something me and I'm sure quite a lot of others will enjoy, and there are those who wont care, but guess what? They can't please everyone in an MMO, you hate it? Door's that way make sure not to let it hit you on the way out. Otherwise accept the fact that stuff gets released/done that some will enjoy, others will not give a flying womp rat about.
What kind of enjoyment do you get out of it? I honestly want to know. Because to me it seems you are putting in a great deal of effort into it, and getting nothing to show for it. Oh except for all the time you wasted on getting said nothing.

*edit* I am starting to think I am becoming jaded by this game, and games like it. I see no point in half the stuff this game has currently, and I am waiting for something that will not ever come to pass.

Since the current codex achievements for epic enemies are being moved to the achievements system does that mean the codex entries will be removed from characters who already got them?

I'm a little underwhelmed by the companion achievements. From what I recall, they were just "Kill some enemies with this companion" and "Kill loads of enemies with this companion".

But then again, while I'd like to see cool stuff, like "Defeat the planet arc boss with so-and-so", it would mean that you could miss out on an achievement forever, unless you reroll that class.

That said, I'd still like to see some unique stuff for each character, like "Defeat a pyromech with M1-4X", or "heal X damage from Khem Val's shadow killer". Would make it a lot more interesting.

You can't make up stuff like that.

I was accused of this several times when I posted, through my heteronym, that it was impossible for BioWare to have spent all that much money on voice-acting, and guess what.

I have no evidence, true, but considering that in its first conception on the PTS the achievement system had 4 slots for each and every single one of the achievements listed, it's a safe bet to assume that it was originally designed with more than title rewards in mind.

*shrugs* I simply enjoy it, I'm the sort of weirdo who spends all day on a game to get that one little virtual achievement no one will ever care about, I do it to waste time and as long as I'm entertained doing it I don't think of it as a complete waste, also I do think you're just jaded, we all have our separate interests, I for one don't see what gives someone pleasure in ganking someone in world PVP, or playing BG matches, I always scratch my head at these people, yet it's what they enjoy and if that's what gives them pleasure, so be it they can go off ganking/ playing PVP and howling from the PVP forums X class is OP, Y class needs a buff and scissors is fine.

Better way would be to fix the whole buged codex entrys...Don't think, that reaching 100% is possible with bugged codex...e.g. places
