The Empire-side storylines seem to give more options for it's characters. I've only played Smuggler and Trooper Republic-side (rest are Empire) but the Trooper storyline gets on my nerves. I'm told Act 2 and 3 are better, but all the super pro-Republic crap makes me want to punch a puppy. The Republic is corrupt and the Trooper... well the Trooper sees the true colors of things early on. Yet you can't do much about it, at least not right away, it's all goody-goody crap.

Empire-side, you have options of being decent or a total terror early on up until the story completes. Plus, the ships look better...

It's like this:

-Republic has better class stories, IMO
-Sith is more fun to play. Kinda like Horde on WoW...everyone wants to be on the bad side because its 'cool'.
-Don't bother being Republic if you plan on using that toon to PVP once you hit level 50. PVP is dominated by Imp premades. As a Pub...Play 10 games, lose 9 of them. And I'm not kidding. (On PO5 at least)
-If you don't PVP, by all means roll Republic!

It's because the dark side has better clubs.

Yeah my BH is level 30... my trooper got to level 6 before being deleted. What an absolute snoozefest. Even his tone is so polite when he's being mean.... it's just frustrating.

Forums are a nexus of dark side energy. All that rage, hate, and tears. So it's natural there will be plenty of them.

Either Imperials can't understand Republic names, so all people that want to be understood use imperial equivalents, or in some cases imperial names are easier/shorter to write, or can be shortened.

I have never played evil characters before. So I started a neutral/light Republic smuggler. It did not feel right to me. It's not the danger, or being an underdog, more like sad, disorganized corruption and futility. It feels not like fighting a heroic battle against all odds, but like missing a project deadline. So I rolled a Sith Warrior and got hooked into the hammy, melodramatic Dark Side stories. You can be a sociopath... It's a totally novel experience for me, and it touched me deeply.

I do have alts for all the other stories, which I am slowly exploring. But I find the Republic side harder to deal with. My trooper is Light Side - how is he supposed to react to, say, Belsavis?! The psychologically sound response is that he becomes totally neurotic. Between a neurotic and a sociopath, the later is more fun to play.
