I don't remember EXACTLY what they say, but IIRC no soldiers die if you give the medicine to the refugees.
So basically the military should just tell their soldiers to bleed slowly while they wait for the requisition to be processed, the medicine to be gathered (if there is any to be had) and shipped (assuming the Empire does not cause problems in transport) and then finally have it reach them?

Thing is most people who need medicine (during a war) need it right now rather then wait a few days/weeks.

The one that gets me is the quest on courasant where you get the chance to expose a senator who is trying to sell out the republic to the empire, but you actually get LS points for protecting the senator (essentially letting him carry on trying to get in bed with the enemy) and DS points for telling everyone what he is up to.

IIRC the Senator is actually working openly, within the democratic process. He's about to propose an alliance with the Sith for whatever reasons, not stage a coup to overthrow the Senate and then make an alliance. Besides you're being asked to steal government documents by a random stranger - do you have any idea what those papers really are and what she'll do with them?

It's a pretty confusing quest in any case, there I agree.

So long as the senator is doing things legally and openly, they have the right to free speech. It's the same as some religious extremist factions being elected into to office. Everyone has the right to express their ideals and work towards achieving them, peacefully.

The only way to defeat a bad idea is with a better one. Underhanded tactics serve only to entrentch people in their beliefs.

That's the problem, though. He isn't doing things in the open. Spirakriss hires you to steal the diplomatic parcel precisely so her "True Republic" can expose what the Senator is up to. You're basically getting DS points for being a whistle blower.

When it comes to playing trooper i usually am DS, mostly cause i choose to follow orders and further the republics war efforts. Most of these choices are DS, even if they are deemed the right thing to do.

There are many ways in which that barrage of missiles could affect the moon and the planet as a result.

So both choices are dark sided in a regard, just one for quick loss of life, other is for later loss of life or loss of a planet.
I don't know what kind of explosives you've got knowledge of that nobody else does, but no missiles houses there could have blown off large chunks of the moon large enough to get through the atmosphere to do any damage. Even if they did, those chunks wouldn't be shot out of orbit and toward the planet, at the most they would orbit the planet or the moon itself.

Not exactly. He is going through the diplomatic process, not doing sneaky business. These bills or whatever he is trying to pass has no chance when it gets voted on, and is not a thread to the security of the Jedi and the Republic. Plus, you're stealing government documents for a person who says she's going to use them to "expose" this guy for what he is, but you don't know her. I skip this quest, though. I don't want it to be part of my story. It's just too vague.
