Is anyone else appalled by how venial and corrupt the 'Republic Military' is presented as being? When that is they are not being presented as too stupid to close the airlock before launch.

You expect corruption to be the rule on Hutta, you expect ruthlessness and betrayal on Korriban. This is in line with Star Wars lore. You do not expect to be embarrassed to be the only honest trooper on the planet, or to be a smuggler (read criminal) and have a better sense of right and wrong than the 'lawful' government.

Honestly, some of it is cringe worthy.
