It's happened like 18 times. Star Wars is the poster child for "history repeats itself."

Like the trollest here is you and not him.

You dare to tell us what kind of topics we must post or not? This is not basically something insulting or worst... just a simple topic to comment.

And everyone's mind is in perfect conditions like yours to realize this is a freaking FICTIONAL videogame, as well Star Wars it is. Just tyring to enjoy it in the best way we can, in all senses, like commenting this...

Oh, and of course Empire never is 100% evil, as well 100% the Republic's people aren't good at all. There are always shames at everywhere, no matter what.

P.S: Is kinda sad Empire will loose anyways (confirmed by this quote in wookieepedia: "By around 2,000 BBY, the Empire had seemingly vanished from the galaxy, and the Galactic Republic was once again the dominant government." Taken here--->, but STILL we have more content about how will develope this war my friends. No one here know that, except Bioware of course, so let's enjoy the videogame and let the future come in time, ;9

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

Your all assuming that the Galactic empire was evil! What if they were the good guys huh? Sure they blew up Alderon and killed a bunch of Jawa's and all that, but who hasn't blown up Alderon a few times to make a point?

None of it is real.

I know that may have just blown the minds of a few people, but there you go.

So what if I know 3,000+ years later in the game's universe that the side I'm on will lose? That doesn't deter me from wanting to play on the non-winning side. I'm just as curious to learn about their stories, their lore, and their way of life.

Not all Sith/Empire are "bad guys" just as not all Jedi/Republic are "good guys". Good and bad are relative to what you personally believe.

Here is how I view it: It's a game and it gives me the opportunity to play a character that I would never be in the real world. In this case, working for the Empire. So what's wrong with that?

Let people have fun and play the game as they wish.
NO! Didn't you read that this is long ago? that means it is all TRUE! ok I'm done joking around i will sit her blankly waiting for my early play invite. may the force be with us all haha

Long story short, to me fan fiction is just people with massive suffering and pain fetishes getting a hold of nice stories. But once again, that's all just IMO.

Oh my God I love YOU!!! this is exactly how i feel!!!!....lets just destroy the beauty and magic of the original by trying to out do them!!! and so on and so on!!! well said!!!!

It's a back and forth power struggle. Luke may kill the emperor but somewhere down the line you have Darth Krayt

Republic loses just as often as Empire. Each time one reappears it's a new beginning. Can't be arsed to cry about something that won't really affect my game one bit, if it's something so terrible for you, then switch sides.
