I don't know if any of you are having difficulty with this but I'm having a hard time trying to pick which side of the force my character should roll on...

I guess I'm just having trouble being a Bounty Hunter for the Empire and being light side .

Anyway, what side did you guys go with? Specific reasons?

I don't go for a side, I just pick what I feel fits natural for my character, or myself.

Sadly a whole lot of people end up dying.

I've been playing 'as myself' and so far, I'm very light.

I've been playing as a true bounty hunter - in my opinion - : dark, evil, mean, killing a lot of people for bribes and obviously - which is the most important - rich.

I usually like to appease my companion but I also tend to always go 'light' given the option. Just my preference.

The nice thing about being a Bounty Hunter is you aren't officially associated with the Empire, you just do some work for them here and there so you aren't expected to adopt their ideals or lifestyle. You can live to whatever standards you see fit and shouldn't feel obligated to appease the Empire any more than they are willing to pay you for.

I end up more dark though, but mostly because I don't generally like the targets I'm sent after. I have been known to let a few disappear off planet though if they aren't complete tools.

I'm letting the story dictate. So far alot of light and alot less dark. Then again this is the Sith empire where the difference between light and dark is deciding whether or not to shoot a puppy or just kick it in the ribs.

I am leveling with a rl friend and he is a BH also, he's going dark, i am going light so we get to see both sides of the story/options.

Me too.

My BH is a professional killer, not a madman.

He tends to take the targets in alive where possible (unless under specific orders) and doesn't see the need to kill everyone he pumps for info, etc (unless he feels they actually deserve it).

As such he seems to be drifting towards LS, but has well over 600 DS points dragging it down too.

Farming flashpoints has skewed the results towards LS though I think.

I'm picking light. My inquisitor will be dark. Oddly enough, the game allows you to kill people for profit without any change (the entire class quest line). The only time you have to worry about light/dark is on specific dialogue options so I am custom tailoring that part for my own less than nefarious purposes.
Order requires strength.
