Is there any special way to determine how to get Light side or Dark side points? im aiming towards dark side? If there is even a difference..

Trolls welcome to post.

This isn't really story and lore but, when you hover over a dialog selection, there's an icon that displays showing whether you'll get light side points (a white star, blue glow) or dark side points (a black triangle, red glow).

This option is on by default, but you can turn it off if you'd prefer to be surprised. You can also make it appear next to the options themselves.

If you're looking for the correct way to GET dark side points, choose emotional responses and murder everyone you get the option to spare.

And no, there's no real gameplay difference. LS and DS just get different gear. I suppose being opposite alignment from your faction might reduce the competition for gear of your alignment, but that's the only practical difference I can think of.

Of course, individual LS/DS choices can make a difference in your story.
